Grand Old Police Blotter: Safavian Flu Edition

It's slammer time for the Bush Administration's Chief of Staff at the G.S.A.:

"The trial consumed eight days of testimony about Safavian's assistance to Abramoff regarding government-owned real estate and a weeklong golfing excursion the lobbyist organized to the famed St. Andrews golf course in Scotland and London.

"Safavian went on the trans-Atlantic trip while he was chief of staff at the GSA, and other participants included Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, two Ney aides and Christian Coalition founder Ralph Reed.

"The jury found Safavian guilty of obstructing the work of the GSA inspector general and of lying to a GSA ethics official. It also convicted him of lying to the GSA's Office of Inspector General and of making a false statement to the Senate Indian Affairs Committee. He was acquitted of a charge of obstructing the committee's investigation."
It's not the Culture of Corruption; it's the Administration of Corruption. (And the Criminalization of Criminality.)

Bob Ney and Ralph Reed have got severe cases of the Safavian Flu this morning.

I hardly leave a response, however i did a few
searching and wound up here Untitled. And I do have a few
questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses appear as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I'd like
to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
