Jack And Karl Sitting In A...
Not even a little surprising..
- Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff bragged two years ago that he was in contact with White House political aide Karl Rove to fight a move to crackdown on firms which used offshore headquarters to pay lower U.S. taxes, according to a published report.
The Washington Post reported Friday that boast by Abramoff, who is facing wire fraud and conspiracy charges on another matter, was revealed by Timothy E. Flanigan, general counsel for conglomerate Tyco International in a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Flanigan is a Bush administration nominee to be deputy attorney general, and the statement to the committee was part of his confirmation process.
Just another example of the slimy underbelly of the Republican party and their "architect." There is no depth too deep for this administration to sink to. If it will benefit them or their friends, then integrity, honesty, and ethics be damned. Why do they continue to put themselves above the good of the nation? Must be all that unquenchable patriotism they have. Or maybe they're just greedy bastards. I don't know, it's a tough call.
Have great weekend, everybody and if you're in the path of Rita, please keep yourself safe.
