FLASH: FOGGO AND WILKES INDICTMENTS ABOUT TO COME DOWN IN SAN DIEGO DESPITE BUSH REGIME'S EFFORTS TO DERAIL INVESTIGATION

>


With two key GOP operatives in the Republican Culture of Corruption, Brent Wilkes and Kyle Scooter Dusty Foggo, about to be indicted, extreme paranoia is sweeping the Republican congressional caucus. At least two dozen GOP congressmen were on the receiving end of goodies from these two. If either turns state's evidence, you will see crooked congressmen like Virgil Goode, Jr., Jerry Lewis, Duncan Hunter, John Doolittle and many more joining their pals Cunningham and Ney in prison.

Think of this as a farewell gift from Carol Lam, the Republican prosecutor fired by the Bush Regime-- without cause-- in order to derail the investigation which had already nailed Cunningham and is close to ending the political careers of at least 4 California Republican congressmen. Do you remember when this investigation was dismissed by Bush operatives as a fantasy existing nowhere but in the fevered minds of bloggers?


UPDATE: FOGGO FROG WALK TODAY

This has a lot of Republicans really upset. They've given up even hoping that voters won't connect them to bribery and corruption but all this talk of poker parties and prostitutes could depress their religionist right base in 2008.


UPDATE: FINALLY! FOGGO AND WILKES BOTH INDICTED!

A federal grand jury handed down indictments for Dusty Foggo and Brent Wilkes today in a major blow against the systemic corruption that has kept the GOP fat and sassy. Just before noon the A.P. reported that Foggo, Bush's eyes and ears (and grabby hands) inside the CIA-- he was a political operative and hack-- was charged with fraud, conspiracy and money laundering in conjunction with the ongoing and expanding "Duke" Cunningham case. Wilkes, who had received as much as $100 million in illicit Bush Regime contracts, many through the connivance of Foggo and Cunningham, was charged with conspiring to bribe Cunningham. A third crooked Republican, John Michael, nephew of convicted GOP bigwig Thomas Kontogiannis, was also charged. The Kontogiannis connection is particularly dangerous to the Bush Regime since Cunningham had brokered a presidential pardon for him (a pardon Kontogiannis claims he paid $400,000 for). Only Bush can grant a presidential pardon and no one has dared to ask him to return the $400,000.

"Virgil Goode, Jr., Jerry Lewis, Duncan Hunter, John Doolittle and many more ... in prison"

What a lovely thought! I can hardly wait to see those crooked conservative bastards get what's coming to them.

Another Bush appointee perp walk, another Rethug on the take, another one bites the Dusty (couldn't resist). Bush will have a stack of pardons to consider before he sneaks out in 2009: maybe even one for Dead Eye.

Now the question's going to be whether "Idiot Al" Gonzales pulled the plug in time to contain the damage. It was presumably too late to head off these indictments, and who in the regime cares--as long as it doesn't come any closer to GOP officeholders?

This is one of those hugely momentous stories that passes under the MSM radar, so finely attuned as it is to the blonde crisis of the day (any day). This thing is going to blow up all over the GOP, a fate they richly deserve. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

I hadn't heard about the pardon that cost $400K. Is there a link to more on that story? Thanks!

delicious!
The only other thing that would make me happy would be to see Duncan Hunter(R-Asshat)caught in the slipstream as well.
