Name that Party

Mayor Kilpatrick has been in the news quite a lot recently with his legal troubles. Crain's Detroit Business is the latest to write a story about him (and his new legal team):
Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's crisis manager for public relations has a track record of dealing with thorny issues.

Past and present clients of Judy Smith and her Washington, D.C.-based Impact Strategies L.L.C. include former presidential intern Monica Lewinsky, the family of slain congressional aide Chandra Levy and Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant, last week named the National Basketball Association's Most Valuable Player.

Kilpatrick's usual image handler is Bob Berg of Detroit-based Berg Muirhead & Associates.
The story goes on for quite a few paragraphs and even mentions these distinguished gentlemen:
Among her current clients are U.S. Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., facing federal bribery and racketeering charges; U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, embroiled last year in allegations of lewd conduct in an airport restroom; and actor Wesley Snipes, recently convicted of federal income tax evasion.
Notice the D and R following these names? That's one thing you won't find anywhere in this story about the Mayor, so what party does he belong to? You know the drill.
