Another Bush II criminal

The Clarion Content has caught wind of another criminal in King George the II's administration, Interior Secretary, Dirk Kempthorne.

Now you may be thinking of the nineteen former and current employees of the Department of Interior's Minerals Management Service that handled billions of dollars in oil royalties paid to the government. The Associated Press has reported (<---a shocking read) that these folks allegedly rigged contracts, accepted gifts and engaged in sexual relations with oil company employees in exchange for governmental favoritism. This criminality you may have already been aware of, but though it occurred on his watch, former Governor Kempthorne was not personally implicated.

The Clarion Content is referring to the recent stunning news that the Interior Secretary, Mr. Kempthorne, had a $235,000 bathroom built in his office, at taxpayers expense, after mid-2006 as the American economy was cratering and the federal deficit was exploding. The Secretary's sumptuous executive bathroom was furnished with a refrigerator and freezer hidden recessed behind lavish wood paneling, as well as a shower complete with monogrammed towels.

Guess it should come as no surprise that a guy who used to own a baseball team and hobnob with scumbag executive's like Enron's Chairman Kenneth Lay (who wiped out more than 5,000 jobs and $1 billion in employee retirement funds) has an Interior Secretary that is blowing $235 large on an executive bathroom while his employees are blowing big oil executives.
