feelin a little nervous, barry? :D

The Democratic National Committee formally has asked the Pentagon for reams of correspondence between military agencies and nine potential Republican presidential candidates, a clear indication that Democrats are building opposition-research files on specific 2012 contenders even before the midterm elections.

An internal Army e-mail obtained by ABC News indicates that the DNC has filed Freedom of Information Act requests for "any and all records of communication" between Army departments and agencies and each of the nine Republicans -- all of whom are widely mentioned as possible challengers to President Obama.

The agencies are asked to respond to the request by this Friday, just four days before Election Day.

Such requests are typical in the world of opposition research, which involves casting a broad net for publicly available material that may at some point prove embarrassing or incriminating to political candidates.

no, it's more 'elections' than 'abuse'; 'abuse' would entail discussion of accessing tax-data.

Not following you.

I think he's talking about the very sinister and scary accessing of public information that the Obama administration did.

Well, while you're looking Barry, see if you can't find your college transcripts.
