A Party Rots From the Head Down?
Four different stories in today’s news point out the corruption and/or arrogance of the Democrat Party and its leaders–like a fish, rotting from the top down.
The Indiana Democratic Party allegedly was involved in forging citizen names on presidential primary petitions in 2008 (h/t Rob and Renee):
Obama could (and should) have been kicked off the ballot, had anyone discovered the fraud in time. This story concerns a Democrat who embezzled $7 million from the campaign coffers of fellow Democrats.
Kinde Durkee, once a trusted treasurer to dozens of California Democrats, pleaded guilty in the biggest campaign embezzlement case to hit U.S. politics.
Now this interesting story has it all:
A major donor to President Barack Obama has been accused of defrauding a businessman and impersonating a bank official, creating new headaches for Obama’s re-election campaign as it deals with the questionable history of another top supporter.
Finally, this story is my personal favorite. And another one goes under the bus!
Citing an Inspector General’s report that “taxpayer dollars were squandered” on her watch, Martha Johnson submitted her resignation to President Obama as head of the General Services Administration. Johnson says President Obama accepted it, effective at close of business today.
