    Kentucky GOP Official Indicted in Probe of Possible Interference in Statehouse Hiring
    By JOE BIESK Associated Press Writer

    FRANKFORT, Ky. Oct 20, 2005 — A grand jury investigating alleged political influence in state hiring and firing indicted the Kentucky Republican Party's treasurer and another GOP official Thursday.

    The defendants are the first people outside state government to be charged in the monthslong probe.

    Dave Disponett, the GOP treasurer, and J. Marshall Hughes, a district chairman, were charged with conspiracy and political discrimination for allegedly helping to make personnel decisions based on applicants' politics.

    -snip-

    The governor has denied any intentional wrongdoing and suggested that the investigation by Democratic Attorney General Greg Stumbo is politically motivated.

    Kentucky governor fights back against illegal-patronage investigation

    MARK R. CHELLGREN
    Associated Press
    Thu, Oct. 13, 2005

    FRANKFORT, Ky. - For the past few months, Republican Gov. Ernie Fletcher has been doing just about everything he can to fend off a criminal investigation into alleged political hiring-and-firing by his administration. But the investigation has steamed on, and appears to be getting closer to Fletcher himself.

    Eleven current or former members of his administration have been indicted so far in the probe by Kentucky's attorney general.

    -snip-
    .......while there has been little or no evidence to publicly connect the governor to any wrongdoing, his efforts to thwart the investigation - including his refusal to testify and his issuing of a blanket pardon to anyone charged - appear to have done grave damage to him politically.

    -snip-

    "You've got to wonder at what point it becomes a death spiral," said Michael Baranowski, a political science professor at Northern Kentucky University.

    Prosecutors have accused Fletcher's administration of handing out jobs on the basis of political affiliation, in violation of a 1960 Kentucky civil service law.

    According to court records: A transportation department inspector was fired for supporting Fletcher's Democratic opponent in the last election. A former Democratic lawmaker was supposedly given a highway job for supporting Fletcher. And the nephew of a GOP official was hired instead of someone more qualified.

    Attorney General Greg Stumbo, a Democrat, opened the investigation in May after a veteran transportation employee showed up on his doorstep with mounds of e-mails and documents.

    -snip-

    So far, no one has been convicted or pleaded guilty. Stumbo, in his own defense, has said he was duty-bound to investigate the allegations. While not exactly ruling out a run for governor, he has said he has no plans to seek the office in 2007, when Fletcher plans to run for re-election.

    I found a master list of GOP legal issues. There is quite a few more that I did not list here. Follow the link to see the rest.

    Source: Here

    Alabama

    Senate President Ben Stevens (son of US Senate Pro Tem President Ted Stevens):
    Probed for accepting consulting fees from oil services firm Veco. Subject to a recall petition.

    Sen. Ted Stevens:
    Recipient of contributions from Abramoff

    Some of these are Abramoff so I will skip over some of these, but make no mistake they will most likely be investigated for their connection to him.

    Arkansas

    Joshua Dickens, Republican Constable of Faulkner County:
    Severly beat, burned, handcuffed and kidnapped woman he was in a relationship with. Sentenced 5 yrs, could be released within 1 year. After the trial, a 16-year-old girl, also made accusations to the police that she had been sexually assaulted by the young man

    Arizona

    Gov. Evan Mecham:
    Impeached, in 1988, after he was convicted of obstructing an investigation into a death threat allegedly made by an aide.

Was the first US Governor to face removal from office by three means simultaneously: impeachment by the legislature, a scheduled recall election, and a criminal indictment.

    Governor Fife Symington:
    Resigned after being convicted of bank fraud charges. Conviction overturned due to improper dismissal of a juror during deliberations. Pardoned by Clinton, probably so he would stop wasting the Federal government's time and money investigating him.

    Rep. David Burnell Smith:
    Initially admitted overspending in his campaign but now, objects to his charges claiming the election laws are unconstitutional. The matter is going to court on Dec. 6th. 2005 (Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Mark Aceto.)(Has $70,000 cash-in-hand to spend on his defense)
    Disposition: March 2005, Arizona's Citizens Clean Elections Commission voted 5-0 to remove Smith from office because of a campaign finance violation. The commission’s order also directs Smith to return $34,625 in campaign funds and pay a $10,000 fine.

    The story of the BUG KILLER'S friend pleading guilty to bribery has not yet caught fire on cable's shouting head circuit, so many people here probably are not yet familiar with it.

    But its a story that has the potential to consume the GOP paper dress of morality and integrity exposing naked their hypocrisy and venalty as poetically as a Jimmy Swaggart "confession".

    All the networks have covered the story -- but largely in the form of an alert, that something big is coming soon so "pay attention".

    Things could get interesting (what's that german word ???)

    CBS tonight broadcast a 2.5 min. story that took a similar: "this story could become big", angle.


    Corruption Inquiry Threatens to Ensnare Lawmakers
    By PHILIP SHENON NY Times
    November 20, 2005

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 - The Justice Department has signaled for the first time in recent weeks that prominent members of Congress could be swept up in the corruption investigation of Jack Abramoff, the former Republican superlobbyist who diverted some of his tens of millions of dollars in fees to provide lavish travel, meals and campaign contributions to the lawmakers whose help he needed most.

    The investigation by a federal grand jury, which began more than a year ago, has created alarm on Capitol Hill, especially with the announcement Friday of criminal charges against Michael Scanlon, Mr. Abramoff's former lobbying partner and a former top House aide to Representative Tom DeLay...

    The situation could be more serious for Mr. Ney, a five-term lawmaker whose position as chairman of the House Administration Committee gives him power over the operations of the Capitol building and allows him to divide up Congressional perks like office space and parking...

    Mr. Ney took part in a golf trip to Scotland in 2002 with Mr. Abramoff, where they played at St. Andrews, as Mr. DeLay had done two years earlier. Documents and testimony to Congress showed that Mr. Abramoff had asked an Indian tribe in Texas to sponsor the trip and that Mr. Ney was then asked for his help in trying to reopen a casino owned by the tribe that had been shuttered by state officials.

    Mr. Ney was also a regular at Signatures, the expensive Washington restaurant that Mr. Abramoff owned and used to entertain clients, colleagues and lawmakers. Former Signatures employees have said that Mr. Ney frequently ate and drank at the restaurant without paying. Mr. Ney has acknowledged the gifts but said they were within limits set by Congressional ethics rules.

    Holy mud-slinging Batman!

    I agree someone has way too much time on their hands to actually go through a list of charges and then connect the dots to see if they are republican or democrat. I did not read the entire list, better things to do with my life then read about events that happened over 20 years ago to an assistant deputy dog catcher's secrataries girlfriends babysitter who once voted republican and is now listed as republican on the records.

    For those individuals who commited a crime, let them serve the appropriate punihment who cares what party they are affiliated with.

    hmm, is it too late to bring back the Royals? We KNOW they are corrupt, no question.. Better to know going in than to find out how corrupt (Bush) is part way into a persons second term.. 'Sides, you gotta love the Royal Style.

    Better yet, let's finally do it. Get so sick of politics and religion (another corrupt system) that we abolish both of them.. Oh wait, with all the damage that those two things have done to society, we'll never get past them.. *sighs*

    I would opt for a vote of no confidence or a referendum on every public official, not just mayors and governors.

    I'm getting ready to leave for asia so I shouldn't be playing here ---but ---

    this awful awful story is a perfect illustration of the corruption that absorbed our media culture (Faux news in particular) and that has more or less lead us to the place where we are today.

    She was killed by a Salvadorian illegal who had raped or attempted to rape 2 other women in the same park in the weeks previous to her disappearance.

    research this more --- its an incredible, terrible story.

    I did not think that was ever determined. I thought he was a person of intrest, just like Condit. As far as news coverage look no further than CNN (Comedy News Network) for the most sensationilizing of reports.

    I agree completely about the media culture and where it's brought us. I wasn't making any claims to his guilt or innocence, simply answering 1911's question.

    that creep is in jail for the rapes -- he was not charged with her murder mostly because of the AWFUL way the Condit case was handled.

    the police are partly responsible -- but they were in large part being driven by the howling dogs of the Faux news et ceteras
