In case you haven't heard, the Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, accused liberal financier George Soros of getting his money from drug cartels.
Josh Marshall is reporting that Hastert is continuing to repeat the charge to the media on the convention floor. In response, Soros has sent Hastert a letter asking for a public apology if he cannot back up the allegations. Marshall has a copy of the letter in his incomparable documents archive.
Reckless rhetoric from Mr. Speaker, who hasn't made many friends lately.
