Putting Their Mouths Where The Money Is
Well, when it fund raising, these guys are no slackers, but the actual numbers are hard to come by. Rumors were that the goal was $5,000,000--enough dough to cover Libby and 19 other would-be GOP criminals. Even Republican heavy hitter and presidential hopeful/savior Fred Thompson is on the advisory committee, holding a fundraiser at his Virginia home.
Think Libby will get to pocket the change? If so, it's the sort of return on investment most of us could only dream of. All that's required is that you do the President's bidding, take a year off for the trial and conviction, and then wait for the post appeal shenanigans. Simplicity itself.
I don't know what was so harsh for this guy.
That is if they ever leave office or we have elections anymore.
However, if I were the Scooter I'd watch my back and make sure I had plenty of bodyguards around me.
I doubt that a burned spy such as a Foreign Asset would take too kindly to having their and lives and there families lives in danger by the very same country your spying for.
If any of those assets get killed because of this I would be very worried if I was Scooter. Muslims believe in Honor Killing and I think this would fall under that as a means for justice denied.
Lew... Crime pays and villains stay.
Let's Talk... In a word...NOTHING! The dude got off light.
Not to mention making sure that he doesn't accept any invitations to go hunting from Vice President Buckshot.
Neil!!!!! You're back! Bummer about the blog.
Kvatch...you are right...Neil needs to anti-up on the tags and do 8888 of them to make up for our loss!
Knowing he won't even pay outta his own pocket just makes it that much worse.
Thanks for the news though, Kvatch. Like it or not, we DO need to know what's really going on. Gawd knows the MSM ain't gonna help with that...
So, no prison time; piddling fine; and probation no longer an issue - talk about taking a dump on the American Public.
Diva... That website is the Defense Trust as far as I can see. I mean...I have my own website as well, but I don't solicit donations on it to take care of my eventual legal troubles.
That's part of the deal for getting out of Jail Free.
No book deal, no "deep throat" interviews with Bob Woodward.
The price for no jail time and complete pardon in 08 is taking the fall, then silence.
Windspike... I don't think it's proven that Libby paid himself. Though it did comes from his accounts, who knows the original source of the assets.
