Faced with a promised vote to subpoena documents on Countrywide Financial's "Friends of Angelo" program, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee fled a scheduled 2 p.m. markup on Thursday. There were complications with Chris Dodd and his relationship to Countrywide, amongst other Dems, that prompted the walkout. And, of course, in this age of technology a Republican Staffer was their to film it and put it on youtube. If you look below the portrait on the white wall you might see a strapping young gentleman from this program (hint: its me!).
