Republican "Slush Fund" Linked to Abramoff, Kidan, and Casino Boats

Even though Jack Abramoff and Adam Kidan were recently sentenced to more than five years in prison, the wake they left behind is still shaking up most of Capitol Hill. A recent article linked the casino boats in Florida that both went to prison for with a Republican "slush fund", Jeb and George W Bush, and Tom Delay.
Several weeks ago, Insider Magazine ran a story reporting that a highly placed official of the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation alleged state documents were being shredded on orders of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

The official said Bush had brought in a number of individuals from Texas to carry out the job of shredding records pertaining to state gaming licensees, slot machines, dog and horse tracks, and jai-alai. The official said he witnessed the shredding.

That story seemed to vanish until very recently. Not one word was heard about the official who blew the whistle or his information. Now, investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, based in Washington, D.C., who has been following the Abramoff scandal, has learned the official involved is a witness for the state in the continuing investigation of Jack Abramoff. Madsen said it is not known whether the official has testified before the grand jury.

The FBI said the destruction of the records may be because of the continuing criminal investigation of GOP lobbyist Abramoff and the federal investigation of the 2001 murder of casino boat owner Gus Boulis. Boulis was shot to death at a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., intersection while driving from his office.

I have been following this story for many, many years now. Even before 9/11, even before Bush became President in 2000. The interesting thing is that DeLay's name came up when I was researching Abramoff and Kidan way back in 1999. Apparently this is something that had been going on "in the background" long before the 2000 elections. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds from this point forward.

I'm guessing the "slap on the wrist" that both Abramoff and Kidan got were just ploys to cover up what is really going on way down deep in our government.

Interesting, no wonder DeLay resign, I can believe that many still stand by that man, but if he was so Innocent why did he gave up?

Because the dirt goes deeper and for a longer period of time.

I believe that is more to dig out but will it happen? I doubt it.
