Spare Change

For a while now I've been following this story out of Ohio concerning the Republican party and some rare coins. It seems that back in 1998 $50 million of the state's worker's compensation money was invested in these rare coins. The involvement of one of the party's largest donors, Tom Noe, made it a little suspect but nobody seemed to get too upset about it. Until now. It was recently discovered that over $10 million worth of coins is missing. It's suspected that some of that $10 million may have been used to make contributions to political campaigns including that of one George W. Bush. Today we learned that the director of the states worker's compensation fund, James Conrad, is going to resign.

(DailyKos has a nice summary of the whole mess here complete with links.)

This whole thing smells fishy. Someone needs to fry. (No pun intended.)

Have a great weekend everybody!
