The author of the mysterious "Terri Schiavo Memo" has stepped forward. Brian Darling -- legal counsel to Sen Mel Martinez (R-FL) -- admitted to drafting the memo that was circulated among Republican Senators. It described how to make political hay out of intervening in the case.
Sen Martinez had earlier denied that his office had any involvement in the memo. Conservative bloggers had labeled it a forgery drafted by the Democrats. After Mr Darling stepped forward, he resigned from his post on Sen Martinez's staff. (WashPost)
