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
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.
