151I'm not enthralled with the idea of pushing the2envelope. Are there going to be more of these that fall into3this category beside Istook's wife? Congressional wife. I4mean, we have to think long and hard because you have to put5it someplace. It's either in your green arrows or red6arrows. If it is in your red arrows, it is in one of these7three subparts. If it does not comfortable fit there, we8would like to rethink it.9MR. EDMONDS: We believe it fits comfortably in one10of the red arrows. I think there is a Government's Exhibit11Number 167-Bwhich I'm sure we have provided to you yet,12whereJohn Albaugh writes to Kevin Ring after -- in the midst13of discussions about the various earmarks, "By the way, Judy14Istook is going to call you and Jack about the Congressional15Spouses Club." Kevin Ring forwards that e-mail to Neil Volz16and Todd Boulanger and replies, "Holy joke getter."17THE COURT: You showed that to me yesterday. I did18see that. I believe this is what prompted the whole -- part19of it. You offered this, did you not?20MR. EDMONDS: I was going to offer it then, and I21withdrew it. It does, however, come up in my time line a22little bit later because it is in the midst of responses in23regards to the Franks earmark. As Mr. Albaugh noted, the24Franks earmark is one of those which he had never done and25would not do for anyone else.
