I was not kidding when I wrote that it is becoming increasingly difficult to stay on top of the extraordinary scandals and mind blowing revelations of fraud within the GOP. They continue to erupt and are not going away any time soon, despite all efforts on the part of the Bush administration to use spin, propaganda, and whatever magic ratty dirty tricks Rove and company might have up their sleeves. Hey Rove Rats, the smoke has cleared and your mirrors are shattered. You idiots under or” mis” – as your leader would say -estimated the intelligence and integrity of most the American people. The 25-30% who do believe you are those who are profiting financially from your policies (your buddies) or those who have been ideologically brain washed, pretty much like Al Qaeda’s suicide bombers.
I found the post below on Daily Kos. It reveals stunning and almost unbelievable (we wish) information on the Cunningham scandal in which Wilkes and Wade, the dudes who bribed Cunningham, set up fake companies to funnel $$$$$$$$ into GOP coffers.
The MadCowMorningNews has learned that California Republican Congressman Randy `Duke' Cunningham steered $500 million in defense contracts in less than a decade, according to the company's own website, to a start-up San Diego software firm which--and here's the beauty part--doubled as a lobbying firm.
The lobbying firm then gratefully kicked back--at a bare minimum--hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to a Jack Abramoff-directed Washington D.C. lobbying and consulting firm run by two former senior staffers of Texas Republican Tom DeLay.
It offered, in other words, one-stop shopping.
While the focus was on the $2 million in bribes paid to Cunningham after his guilty plea, the question of just what the Congressman had done for all that long green received scant media attention.
But as the extent of the damage to America's national security wrought by the bribes which crossed Cunningham's greasy palm begins to come into focus, the fraud being revealed is orders of magnitude greater than has been hinted at so far.
