Irriguous Minds Want to Know

Irriguous minds want to know -- where did the yachting photos of Congressman Jeff Miller go?

We're referring to the National Marine Manufacurer's Association, which has been aggressively hosting fund-raising parties for various incumbent congressmen with sumptuous, all expenses paid outings "at the helm of the yacht and group shots of other lawmakers posed on the boat with their smiling aides... ."

Apparently, the gay blade gallery of government goombahs included pics of Northwest Florida's incumbent congressman Jeff Miller (R-Chumukla):
"Other members of Congress whom the trade group's PAC hosted for fundraisers on the yacht included Sens. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., and Reps. Ed Case, D-Hawaii, Sue Kelly, R-N.Y., Jeff Miller, R-Fla., Jim Oberstar, D-Minn., Tom Reynolds, R-N.Y., and Don Sherwood, R-Pa., according to trade association and federal campaign finance reports.
According to the last week's Chicago Tribune, the photos were proudly posted on the NMMA's web site.

But now they're not. Did the photos of our incumbent congressmen nuzzling up to a lobbyist trough get deep-sixed after the Tribune's report? Or, are they hiding behind the "paid members" page?
