Another Republican Scheme Thwarted – This time in Alaska
Posted by bosskitty on May 4, 2007
Keep an eye on the Republicans in your state! Republican pirates are looting their electorate while they still have King George looking over them. Of course, not all Republicans are pirates, but the numbers are really scary.
A Federal Grand Jury handed down indictments this Friday. Arrested were:
Representative Victor Kohring, Republican from Wasilla, Alaska, charged with extortion, attempted extortion, bribery and conspiracy.
Pete Kott of Eagle River and Bruce Weyhrauch of Juneau, both Republicans, charged with extortion, bribery and wire or mail fraud in trying to help the unnamed company.
Court papers allege one current and two former Alaskan Republican legislators are linked to a scandal involving new contract for a natural gas pipeline. Indictments list bribes, extortion, wire fraud and job offers in Barbados, for legislation favoring a Pipeline Company and a new petroleum profits tax proposal in exchange for benefits.
“You’ll get your gas line, the governor gets his (tax) bill, and I’ll get my job in Barbados,” Kott told company executives during a teleconference.
Thank you STEVE QUINN, Associated Press Writer, for bringing these revelations to our attention.
Now we know why those prosecutors were fired. They were supposed to drum up enough Democratic indictments to offset the embarrassing numbers of crooked Republicans.
GOP now stands for “Greed over Peace”
