Bush/RNC Email Scandal

For an administration so eager to spy on Americans, they sure do love their guilty-looking secrecy (emphasis mine):

Spamicles alerts us to a report just issued (PDF) by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. At least 88 White House officials used Republican National Committee email accounts for government business. The RNC has destroyed at least some of the emails from 51 of those officials. Law requires emails sent by officials to be stored or recorded. There is evidence that White House lawyers and the (current) Attorney General knew of this but did not act to stop it. From the article: “These e-mail accounts were used by White House officials for official purposes, such as communicating with federal agencies about federal appointments and policies… Given the heavy reliance by White House officials on RNC e-mail accounts, the high rank of the White House officials involved, and the large quantity of missing e-mails, the potential violation of the Presidential Records Act may be extensive.”

Republicans like to try to distance themselves from Bush, but in every scandal, they play a role. Whether it is evidence nanny or scheming mastermind, we’ve had more than just a Bush administration, we’ve had a quintessential Republican administration.

  1. Every week, a fresh scandal involving the Bush junta.

    But Madam Botox, AKA, Nancy Pelosi insists “impeachment is off the table.” It simply boggles the mind. Our elected lawmakers are as weak as water.

  2. Water’s pretty damn strong.
    They’re more like a slice of bacon standing up for pigs rights.

  3. Well the more they dig, the more garbage comes out and worse the smell gets. At some point somebody is going to scream for the flamethrowers!

    Lt. Col. Frank Slade: “Out of order, I show you out of order. You don’t know what out of order is, Mr. Trask. I’d show you, but I’m too old, I’m too tired, I’m too fuckin’ blind. If I were the man I was five years ago, I’d take a FLAMETHROWER to this place! Out of order? Who the hell do you think you’re talkin’ to? I’ve been around, you know? There was a time I could see. And I have seen. Boys like these, younger than these, their arms torn out, their legs ripped off. But there isn’t nothin’ like the sight of an amputated spirit. There is no prosthetic for that. You think you’re merely sending this splendid foot soldier back home to Oregon with his tail between his legs, but I say you are… executin’ his soul! And why? Because he’s not a Bairdman. Bairdmen. You hurt this boy, you’re gonna be Baird bums, the lot of ya. And Harry, Jimmy, Trent, wherever you are out there, FUCK YOU TOO! “
