How do I indict thee? Let me count the ways…

It seems like the perfect time for an indictment recap...

Today, Scooter Libby was indicted on 5 charges. 1 count of obstruction of Justice, 2 counts of perjury, 2 counts of making false statements. A potential 30 year prison sentence. If he goes to the Big House, the name Scooter will take on a whole new meaning…

Tom Noe, former Bush Pioneer, indicted on 3 counts of violating federal campaign finance funding limits. Illegally funneled $45,400 to President Bush’s re-election campaign. This whole escapade in Ohio is as surreal as it can be. If you haven’t been reading the Toledo Blade, who busted this whole affair, you must. Because you won’t friggin’ believe how crooked (and unbelievably stupid) that whole state is under Republican control.
Read the articles that cover the whole 7 month investigation here.

Jack Abramoff, Washington lobbyist and Republican kiss-ass has been indicted in Florida on 5 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy bank fraud.

David Safavian
, former chief of White House procurement (Pimp?) was indicted on 5 counts of lying about his dealing with Jack Abramoff.

Bill Frist
is under formal investigation by the SEC for insider trading. His trust was blind – not!

Tom DeLay, former pest control expert, (Too bad he never turned the bug juice on himself) indicted on conspiracy to violate campaign financing laws and 2 counts of money laundering. Texas Association of Business and Texans for a Republican Majority also indicted.
32 indictments in all…

Shaun Hansen
of Spokane, Washington, was indicted for taking part in a Republican scheme to jam Boston Democrats’ get-out-the-vote phone lines on Election day 2002. Chuck McGee, former executive director of the Republican State Committee and Allen Raymond, GOP consultant from Virginia pleaded guilty. McGee got 7 months in Federal Prison, Allen Raymond got 5 months.
James Tobin of Bangor Maine, and regional director of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee (and former Bush campaign chairman) pleaded innocent to violating federal telephone harassment statute and depriving voters of a constitutional right to vote…his trial will begin Dec. 6.

Wow, this is an impressive Rogues Gallery. This party has NO credibility anymore as the law and order party. Or the party of national security. The decent Republicans should purged their party of its criminal element. And the media should never ever, take anything they say at face value. These people cannot be trusted.

PS. Isn’t Tucker Carlson a whiny little Bitch for the Republicans?
I’d love to snap his pretentious bow tie.

Oh, and of course, everyone is innocent until proven guilty…

I think it's also important to note the ramifications of the alleged criminal acts. For example: Tom DeLay allegedly uses all this extra money during the Texas Senatorial races. Coincidentally or not, Republicans win a majority of seats in the Texas Legislature for the first time since-- well--I think, ever.

With this newly gained power DeLay redraws Congressional districts in the state in order to ensure a strong Republican majority in Congress, further neutralizing any opposition to the path of destruction that the GOP is hell-bent on implementing.

Of all the violations in this list, DeLay's has to be in the top two.

Totally agree BP, I was doing more of a time chronology.
But be sure to read about Tom Noe, his fingers were in a lot of pies. And I'd love to see whether or not Bush gives back his campaign contributions to Ohio from whence Noe kiped it.
