BREAKING NEWS: Mel Martinez and staff distributed infamous Schiavo memo

Hitting the wires this morning is news that the infamous memo that called on Republicans to politicize the issue of Terri Schiavo originated from the office of Florida's U.S. Senator Mel Martinez. The document, drafted by a senior staff member, was left anonymous and handed out to GOP senators. Mel Martinez has since admitted that he himself passed out the memo on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Apparently, Martinez handed the memo to Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), who had sided with the Republicans on the controversial issue.

This revelation comes on the heels of a Washington Post report by Howard Kurtz that expressed the opinion that the memo may had been produced by Democratic staffers and distributed as a way to embarrass the GOP. So much for the liberal media! Now that the truth is known, let's hope that the Washington Post will issue a retraction and an apology to the Democratic Party and more importantly to the family of Terri Schiavo.

Kurtz not only needs to apologize to the Democrats, but also to his own newspaper, who he didn't believe (the WP broke the story along with ABC News).
