Senator Harry Reid's Ethical Scandals Over the course of his political career, Reid has been implicated in several serious ethics scandals: In a 1998 real estate deal engineered by Jay Brown (a former casino lawyer and a longtime friend of Reid), the senator purchased two undeveloped residential-property lots on Las Vegas’ rapidly growing outskirts for approximately $400,000. Reid bought one of the parcels on his own, and the second one jointly with Brown. One of the sellers was a developer who was benefiting from a government land swap supported by Reid. In 2001 Reid sold both of his lots for $400,000 to a limited liability corporation created by Jay Brown, but he never disclosed the sale on his annual public ethics report. Nor did he inform Congress that he held any stake in Brown's company. As far as Congress knew, Reid was still the owner of the two lots he had purchased three years earlier. In 2004 Brown's company, having negotiated with local officials to rezone the property for a shopping center, ...

The National Journal reports : “Members of Congress and their aides took more free trips around the world in 2013 than in any year since new restrictions were put in place after the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling scandal. The website LegiStorm, which compiles congressional travel records, said Monday that lawmakers and their staffs took a combined 1,887 free trips last year for a total cost of almost $6 million. That amount is more than double the sum private groups spent on congressional trips in 2008, the first full year that the tightened travel rules of 2007 went into effect. The total number of trips has bounded upward by more than 60 percent since 2008 as well. Last year, lawmakers enjoyed all-expenses-paid journeys to Ireland, Morocco, France, South Africa, Israel, Turkey, and many more destinations, according to House travel records. With them spending 4 to 5 hours a day hustling donations (like Nancy Pelosi stated) and the free trips when do these wonderful busy people have time to represent ...

In October, 2011, Baucus urged Senate Appropriations heads Inouye and Cochran and House Appropriations heads Rogers and *** worked to remove USDA horse-slaughter-inspection defunding language from the 2012 Agriculture Appropriations bill. The language was removed by three Congressmen in a closed door session and signed into law on November 18 by President Obama.In 2005, Baucus returned $18,892 in contributions connected to Jack Abramoff including an estimated $1,892 for use of Abramoff's sky box in 2001.

Casino Jack (2010) Casino Jack Casino Jack is a 2010 biographical political satire film starring Kevin Spacey and directed by George Hickenlooper. The film focuses on the career of Washington, D.C. lobbyist and businessman Jack Abramoff, who was involved in a massive corruption scandal that led to his conviction as well as the conviction of two White House officials, Rep. Bob Ney, and nine other lobbyists and congressional staffers. Abramoff was convicted of fraud, conspiracy and tax evasion in 2006, and of trading expensive gifts, meals and sports trips in exchange for political favors. Abramoff served three and a half years of a six-year sentence in federal prison, and was then assigned to a halfway house. He was released on December 3, 2010.

So, I saw Wolf of Wall Street yesterday, and I must say that it is a great piece of filmmaking, as is everything the master, Martin Scorcese does! YES! There is a tremendous amount of sex and drug use in this film, as a matter of fact - a man came in with his young children, a girl and a boy maybe under ten years old, and they walked out soon after the opening which right off the bat featured both drug use and sex-he should never have brought them in the first place! I know there is a lot of talk out there about this film glorifying his decadence and debauchery, but I truly think it's quite the contrary, Scorsese is not glorifying it--though to some extent he did make you feel for the Belfort character, who was a scumbag to be sure--but what the film shows in a broad way, is the overindulgence that the Wall Street easy money boys of the late 80's and the mid-90's got trapped in. And it was a trap--it became, and to a large extent still is today, a modern day Sodom & Gomorrah. And ultimately, it was this a ...

Norquist is the enemy of Americans. He basically is declaring himself our leader - his will is our fate. Found this article. According to a 2011 memoir by former lobbyist Jack Abramoff, Norquist was one of Abramoff's first major Republican party contacts.[44] Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform were also mentioned in Senate testimony relating to the Jack Abramoff Indian lobbying scandal which resulted in a 2006 guilty plea by Abramoff to three criminal felony counts of defrauding of American Indian tribes and corrupting public officials. Records released by the Senate Indian Affairs Committee allege that ATR served as a "conduit" for funds that flowed from Abramoff's clients to surreptitiously finance grass-roots lobbying campaigns.[45] Norquist has denied that he did anything wrong, and has not been charged with any crime. While serving much of his early political career with Abramoff, Norquist would be hard pressed to prove he knew absolutely nothing about the dealings of Jack Abramoff.[46]

With Tax Day coming up, The Daily Beast scours the records to find whether Democrats or Republicans have the worse tax problem. With Emancipation Day pushing this year’s tax deadline to Monday, filers will have a few extra days to complete and review their IRS forms. And if those who haven’t completed their taxes yet also hold public office, they’re going to want to be extra careful.

I know of only three ways to learn the lessons of life. 1) You can carefully study the experience of others. You can't observe everything, but you can, by wide reading and formal education, learn from the experiences of your contemporaries as well as those who lived ages ago. You can learn from them all. 2) By observation, by paying attention to what goes on around you, you can learn from the experience of others. Careful observation benefits anyone in any field, from sports to science to politics. Lessons from the lives of Jack Abramoff and many others are unfolding before your eyes. Keep those eyes open, and you can learn useful lessons of life every day. 3) Finally, you can learn though your personal experience. That's learning by trial and error, better known as the school of hard knocks. Personal trial and error is usually the hardest way to learn anything, though I can't deny that that school teaches its lessons well. Its drawback, however, is that by the time you graduate from the school of hard kn ...
One of my Favorite Photos. Kingston and Karzai. Two peas in a pod. Kingston votes for every military spending bill, regardless of merit. Even when the Joint Chiefs don't want it, Kingston does. For every 0.1 day that we support the currupt Afgan government, we can pay for 100% of the school lunch program in 25 States! Does anyone think that Kingston cares about American Children? I don't. I wonder if there is a big check underneath the award. Since Kingston was willing to function as Jack Abramoff's "bag-man" in Congress, I suppose anything is possible.
There should be a rule that any television talking head who wants Ralph Reed to blather on his show has to put up a trailer/ticker below the guy's name and affiliation saying "Reed laundered millions of dollars for Jack Abramoff's illegal lobbying operations." Maybe that would remind some viewers of his inherent sleaziness. He's on some CNN show right now whining about the intolerance of "the left" toward that figure of faith Phil Robertson.

New York Times (June 5, 2010) has belatedly reported on the massive violation of U.S. tax laws by both right-wing Zionist and Christian Zionist "charities." The report also emphasized that the same groups violating these laws are working overtime to thwart an important part of President Obama’s foreign policy. The way they accomplish this dual damage is by sending millions of dollars a year under the guise of charity to illegal Israeli settlements on the West Bank, even as President Obama seeks to halt that same settlement process as a major impediment to peace. There are several aspects of this story, not taken up by the NYT report, that need looking into: 1. Why are these Zionists, Jewish and Christian, so intent on fostering Israeli imperial expansion that they are willing to break American law? And, 2. Why has the U.S. government let them get away with it for years? 1. Many of the Americans donating millions and the Zionist front men illegally channeling their contributions to the settlements are re ...
"This whole thing about not kicking someone when they are down is BS. Not only do you kick him, you kick him until he passes out---then beat him over the head with a baseball bat, then roll him up in an old rug, and throw him off a cliff into the pounding surf below."-Michael Scanlon, former chief of staff to Housse Majority Leader-turned convicted felon Tom Delay (R-TX) and business partner of convicted felon Jack Abramoff, in an email to staff during the Clinton impeachment proceedings. Scanlon later pleaded guilty and served jail time for conspiring to bribe a member of congress and other public officials.

for those of you that support Ted Cruz Jack Abramoff leads think tank dedicated to tearing down Mandela. In 1986, the South African government helped fund and establish The International Freedom Foundation (IFF), a conservative think tank designed to “reverse the apartheid regime’s pariah status in Western political circles” and “portray the ANC as a tool of Soviet communism, thus undercutting the movement’s growing international acceptance as the government-in-waiting of a future multiracial South Africa.” The Washington branch of the IFF listed, among others, Senator Jesse Helms, James Inhofe as advisers. The lobbyist Jack Abramoff led the organization.

For those of you Democrats that believe your party is supporting your rights, you might want to check below on Harry Reid's career. This was copied from Wikipedia. Reid has also been criticized for several potentially self-enriching tactics. In 2005, Reid earmarked a spending bill to provide for building a bridge between Nevada and Arizona that would make land he owned more valuable. Reid called funding for construction of a bridge over the Colorado River, among other projects, "incredibly good news for Nevada" in a news release after passage of the 2006 transportation bill. He owned 160 acres (65 ha) of land several miles from the proposed bridge site in Arizona. The bridge could add value to his real estate investment.[40] A year later it was reported that Reid had used campaign donations to pay for $3,300 in Christmas gifts to the staff at the condominium where he resides;[41] federal election law prohibits candidates from using political donations for personal use. Reid's staff stated that his attorne ...

Airing Harry Reid’s Dirty Laundry A Western Journalism Exclusive By Steve Baldwin Senator Harry Reid claims to be an ethical politician and he often employs his Mormon religion in order to demonstrate his alleged immaculacy. However, the reality is that he is, in fact, one of the most ethically challenged politicians in office today. This report will review his alliances with corrupt individuals, his support of ACORN, his ties with organized crime figures and his chronic failure to comply with campaign finance laws. Harry Reid’s Alliance with Jack Abramoff Soon after the Jack Abramoff scandal broke, Reid took the lead in attacking Republicans for fostering a “culture of corruption.” (1) But shortly after making these comments, it was reported that Reid took almost $68,000 from Abramoff’s firm, its PAC and its Indian casino clients. (2) Reid then tried to distance himself from Abramoff, stating, “[D]on’t lump me in with Jack Abramoff. This is a Republican scandal. Don’t try to give any of i ...
