The Comstock Act

It involves Republicans trying to transport obscene smears across party lines.

Babbs Comstock has crawled out from under her rock once again:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 8 - I. Lewis Libby Jr., Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, is establishing a fund to help pay for his legal defense in the C.I.A. leak case, and associates of Mr. Libby have begun soliciting money from his friends and Republican donors, lawyers and people who have been contacted about the fund said on Tuesday.

Barbara Comstock, a Republican communications strategist who has been hired to work with Mr. Libby's defense team, has pulled together a list of potential contributors and has been in touch with some of them in the last week, providing an address in Washington for sending checks, the people said.

Babbs is also a paid apologist for the Toxic Texan Bugchaser, so she's got her obstruction of justice cut out for herself. Her attempts to smear Mr. Fitzgerald will no doubt fail as miserably as her attempts to smear Mr. Earle.
