Jack Abramoff’s Corruption and Bribery in Washington
Posted by Larry Doyle on November 8, 2011 9:06 PM |
Regular readers of Sense on Cents are well aware of my contempt for the relationship between those on Wall Street and their incestuous partners in Washington.
While my blog’s focus has been on this aforementioned relationship, let there be no mistake that the normal order of business now in our nation is that these incestuous relationships extend far beyond Wall Street into virtually every industry in our nation.
Regrettably, far too many of our supposed leaders in Washington who wield legislative power have embraced those who shower favors of all types on them.
You don’t believe me?
Then take the 14 minutes to watch and simultaneously vomit over a 60 Minutes interview with Jack Abramoff, a noted scumbag and convict who showered these favors all over Washington. Mr. Abramoff may have limited credibility, but are there any amongst us who doubt for a second what he has to say.
Does any of this surprise you? The behaviors are reprehensible but at what point do they border on treason?
Where are our statesmen? What happened to our nation and real leadership?
Transparency is always the greatest disinfectant. Let’s not merely talk about reform. Let’s have a full and open accounting of all the bribery and corruption. Let’s name names and release figures and details.
When might 60 Minutes follow up this expose with another story in which they release the particulars behind this corruption and bribery in Washington?
How does America allow these losers to influence and govern our country?
I have no affiliation or business interest with any entity referenced in this commentary. The opinions expressed are my own. I am a proponent of real transparency within our markets, our economy, and our political realm so that meaningful investor confidence and investor protection can be achieved.
