What could be more amazing than to find out the very person who helped deliver Bush his victory in 2000 to now be investigated for bribery. Well she is and it helps paint the picture of how deep corruption goes in the Republican party even more.
From the AP:
U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris said Thursday she did not knowingly do anything wrong in her associations with a defense contractor who prosecutors say illegally funneled thousands of dollars to her campaign in 2004.
Questions about the donations have arisen as Harris, the former Florida secretary of state who oversaw the 2000 presidential election recount, tries to unseat U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.
The donations were described in a plea agreement last Friday, when Mitchell Wade, the former president of MZM Inc., pleaded guilty to bribing U.S. Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham in exchange for assistance in getting $150 million in Defense Department contracts for his company.
It is looking more like Randy Cunningham was just a scratch on the surface of an even larger case of corruption and scandals. Now that he is cooperating with prosecutors we very well could see more Republicans indicted. Of course Harris would be a big plus.
