CA-04: Richard Pombo Thinks Doolittle is too Corrupt!!!

Former Congressman Richard Pombo is alleged to be urging John Doolittle (CA-04) not to stand for re-election. For the good of the Republican party. At first blush, this sounds like something from The Onion. But it's not - it's from that Washington insider paper, The Hill:

According to three well-placed Republican sources, former Representative Richard Pombo (R-CA) — who lost his seat amid ethics allegations — has called on longtime friend Doolittle to not seek reelection in the interest of keeping the district a GOP stronghold. In the last Congress, Pombo was a panel chairman while Doolittle was a member of GOP leadership.
