Mail fraud, false statements to the FBI and perjury are still crimes, even if they were committed for a cause that ultimately failed.
Option (1) is most likely, with (2) a not-so-close second. (3) is impossible because it makes no sense, (4) has already been proven to be untrue, and if it had been (5), it would have worked and we wouldn't be talking about it now. Nobody does dirty tricks like the Democratic Party. ;)posted by aaron at 2:29 PM on March 6, 2001

Iran-contra? Yeah, I agree: Lawrence Walsh pulled a real fast one against Weinberger and Bush, didn't he?posted by aaron at 3:05 PM on March 6, 2001
It's too late. Dictionaries now consider -gate a legitimate suffix.
Judging from the interviews with former employers that came out last year, it appears that Lozano has long been a somewhat sneaky, underhanded person. My guess is she was just a typical Bush-hater who also had delusions of grandeur, believing that she could alter the course of history by giving Gore the ability to destroy Bush in the debates and thus win the election.
Methinks you're getting a bad case of hypochondria there, Dan. It never happened. Newsweek determined it never happened. The New Republic, of all magazines, determined it never happened. A House of Representatives task force - in 1993, while under Democratic control - determined it never happened. To sum up, it never happened.posted by aaron at 3:58 PM on March 6, 2001
