GOP Scandal Scorecard

September 20, 2005 -- The GOP Scandal Scorecard add another member of the Bush White House.

Latest crook: David Hossein Safavian, a top official of White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), was arrested yesterday by the FBI for helping GOP huckster and Indian gambling casino lobbyist Jack Abramoff buy the Old Post Office Building in Washington and 40 acres of the Naval Surface Weapons Center in White Oak, Maryland for a Jewish school founded by Abramoff. While serving as the General Services Administration's (GSA) Chief of Staff between 2002 and 2004, Safavian accepted a Scotland golf trip from Abramoff in return for helping him acquire the prime real estate properties. Abramoff and his business colleague Adam Kidan were indicted by Federal authorities last month on other charges.

This scam should serve as a stark and ominous signal for the displaced people of Louisiana and Mississippi as Abramoff's friends descend on the area to obtain condemned property at cut-rate prices for their plan to turn the Gulf Coast into a "Dixieland Las Vegas."

See Scorecard. This list is getting so large, perhaps the new Sh'ia-led government of Iraq (or western Iran) will permit us to house these criminals at Abu Ghraib, complete with hoods, electric nodes, sodomite guards, and vicious dogs.
