I read about it. It's despicable that he would sell it. In this, it means he didn't care which party got in. It could have been Mr. Burns for all he cared, so long as he got paid for it.
I hope that they prosecute him fully for this and all the other things. I'd also like to stop and remind everyone at this point that this is wrong no matter who you are, this isn't an issue about political parties, it's an issue about how far some people will push their power.
