Like the rest of the BB's..Timothy Flanagan was in Jack's pocket..so deep that he was either pushed or jumped from the nomination wagon for Deputy AG..hard to say which..but dropping him like a hot rock was one of the few smart moves this administration and its minions have orchestrated in some time..
Flanagan who was also the Senior Lawyer for Tyco Intl. (see my post about the Tyco top brass being sentenced for stripping said company of millions of dollars)said in his letter of withdrawal that he just wanted to end the talk about his ties to Jackie A...Tim Flanagan told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Abramoff, subject of a federal investigation into his lobbying activities, began lobbying on behalf of Tyco in spring 2003 and bragged about his ties to Tom DeLay and Karl Rove, Bush's top political aide. Now I just want to know what kinda ties Jackie A and Tommy D have together..besides the fact that they are corporate carpetbaggers of the worst kind..Those two in the same room can not be a good thing for America..not by a long shot sportsfans..
And let us not forget about the arrest of David Safavian, the Bush administration’s top procurement officer. Among other allegations, Safavian reportedly gave sweetheart deals on federal office space to Abramoff AND the federal grand jury has indicted his lying ass on five counts of "making false statements and obstructing investigations into high-powered Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff." . Like Abramoff, Safavian is well connected to Republican power circles; his wife serves as counsel to the congressional committee investigating the Hurricane Katrina debacle.
There is a good post on who the possible snitch is on Tommy Boy DeLay over at talkingpointsmemo.com ...Josh seems to think its Warren RoBold..the link to his post on the subject is here.
Thats all, it was a grueling sports day for moi..
