The blotter

For the second time this week, a House Republican has garnered a headline that has the words "FBI" and "raid." Arizona GOP Rep. Rick Renzi saw his family business raided by the FBI yesterday. "In October, Justice Department officials confirmed that Renzi was the subject of an inquiry into a 2005 land swap that would benefit a business associate, according to The Associated Press."

Renzi represents a fairly competitive seat. He also made the decision to temporarily step down from his post on the House Intelligence Committee.

The other GOP member to be the subject of an FBI raid this week, California's John Doolittle, said he's temporarily stepping down from his position on the House Appropriations Committee.
