Another Watergate Scandal in the works for the Republicans...
The Party of family values, decency and adherence to the law may be facing a new round of scandals, I guess absolute power does corrupt. Madsen is a major Left Wing Conspiracy guy, but a lot of times he gets some pretty good leads as to what is going on in DC.
April 29, 2006 -- The cresting wave of major scandals in Washington. At week's end, there is every indication that the Bush White House is bracing for additional scandals. A sex scandal involving the rented suites at the Watergate Hotel (the GOP just can't stay away from that place), female and male prostitutes and male GOP members of Congress and top CIA officials, including Director Porter Goss, and GOP-connected contractors is simmering but is expected to blow wide open in the next few weeks. Goss's warnings about ex-CIA officers speaking to the media have more to do with curtailing information about the growing sex and bribery scandal than in tracking down leaks about pre-Iraq war intelligence. Also, George W. Bush's top assistant Karl Rove appears to be facing at least two criminal charges that could be brought by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in the next few weeks. The former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Lester Crawford is the subject of a federal grand jury for financial improprieties involving pharmaceutical companies and making false statements to Congress. Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, along with GOP Chairman Ken Mehlman, have been implicated in a GOP phone jamming criminal case in New Hampshire. The lack of federal response to Katrina and dissatisfaction with Barbour is causing Mississippi - once a solidly "red" state -- to turn pale blue and that means Trent Lott's re-election chances may not be as secure as Republican pollsters seem to believe. Bush's recent staff changes were largely made in anticipation of a summer of widening scandals. WMR's GOP scandal scorecard has been updated to show the current scandals
Honestly, we need a score card to keep up with the GOP scandals. The no-bid contracts and firing of the whistle blowers hasn't even surfaced yet. I was watching Steve Colbert interviewing a conservative columnist from the American Standard (?) and this person had already given the Democrats the House in the midterm elections.
There is a scorecard on Madsen's site:
