Rep. Harris (R-Fl.) and Rep.Goode (R-Va.)

According to reports they have been named by Michale Wade as receiving about $80,000.00 in illegal contributions.

The defense contractor who bribed ex-Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham (D) says he directed $80K in illegal campaign contributions to two members of Congress. In exchange for the campaign cash, a staffer for one of the members inserted a $9M provision that benefited MZM into an approps bill.

Not bad, an $80,000.00 investment results in a $9,000,000.00 return. The sad part, while the actions of Wade are clearly illegal, there is a reasonable chance that the actions of Harris and Goode are perfectly legal, immoral, disgusting, nation destroying, but legal.

Skippy had this to say about the current state of affairs within the republican party.

finally, a republican sex scandal even the msm can understand

abramoff was the pimp; foreign interests like russia's energy companies and the government of malaysia were the johns; the republicans in congress and aWol were the whores.

Only in this case, Cunningham, Harris, and Goode didn't need the pimp to make the sale.

it is hard to understand how taking 40K in gifts and awarding a 9M contract can be considered a legal act

If you are a republican you are a crook, it is that simple now
