Why Rep. Schakowsky is so quiet about Waxman's Blackwater tax allegation

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), a leader of the anti-Blackwater foil hat conspiracy set, is conspicuously quiet about Congressman Henry Waxman's allegation that our favorite company evaded taxes.

And that's unusual, because Schakowsky (pictured) seldom wastes an opportunity to rake Blackwater over the coals.

Why is Schakowsky so quiet? Could it be because her husband is a convicted felon who spent time in federal prison for bank fraud and tax evasion?

Mr. Schakowsky, known as Robert Creamer, was accused of swindling banks for $2.3 million, and for evading federal taxes. He pleaded guilty to bank fraud and tax evasion in 2005 and was sentenced to 5 months in federal prison and 11 months house arrest in 2006.
