Evictions by Democrats.

A few weeks ago I wrote about the difference in the way the Bush daughters and Chelsea Clinton are living in their life in response to a slam on Jenna Bush by James Wolcott. I wrote about Chelsea working for Avenue Capital, a hedge fund run by Marc Lasry, a loyal donor to Democratic causes generally, and heavy supporter of the Clintons. (so says Wikipedia).

Well, John Edwards has been getting heat for working for the hedge fund that is responsible for some subprime loans and foreclosures in Iowa. But, as Slate points out, "the hedge fund for which Chelsea Clinton has worked is not exactly Landlord of the Year either " That landlord would be Marc Lasry and Avenue Capital.

Hedge funds, throwing people out on the street, and foreclosures. Don't you love how Democratic supporters are all about helping the poor?
