Is Bill Clinton's former crisis consultant Lanny Davis telling Jane Harman to rub off her latest controversy by poking fun at it publicly? Last week she participated in a 5K race where the Southbay Congresswoman named her team "Tapped Out," a reference to a scandal where her phone was tapped by the NSA. Allegedly, she helped two Israeli agents involved in an espionage case in exchange for another agent to lobby Nancy Pelosi to choose Harman as the chair of the all powerful House Intelligence Committee. Harman denies the allegations and is calling for the release of the transcripts from the wiretapped call.
