Pasco did include Rohrabacher in an April 14 Times story on California politicians who, like Tom DeLay, keep family members on their payrolls. Rohrabacher said his wife was on the campaign payroll because he needs a campaign manager he can trust. The Register weighed in three days later with "Rohrabacher feels for, supports DeLay." The pull quote there had Rohrabacher calling Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Connecticut) a "jerk" for urging DeLay to do what he ultimately did anyway: step down as House majority leader.
Despite coverage in the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, major dailies in Texas, wire services around the country and all over the world wide web, a recent database search turned up zero-zippo-nada hits for Register or LA Times stories that mention Rohrabacher and Abramoff in the same article.
