The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

On Criminal Enterprises and the Democratic Party

... but I repeat myself.

Sorry for all of you True Believers out there, but this is bribery, and it is against the law, whether it's committed by the nexus of all hopes and dreams or by an Evil Republican Chimphitler.

Obama rewards big bundlers with jobs, commissions, stimulus money, government contracts, and more

Telecom executive Donald H. Gips raised a big bundle of cash to help finance his friend Barack Obama’s run for the presidency.

Gips, a vice president of Colorado-based Level 3 Communications LLC, delivered more than $500,000 in contributions for the Obama war chest, while two fellow senior company executives collected at least $150,000 more.

After the election, Gips was put in charge of hiring in the Obama White House, helping to place loyalists and fundraisers in many key positions. Then in mid-2009, the new president named him ambassador to South Africa. Level 3 Communications, in which Gips retained stock, meanwhile received millions of dollars of government stimulus contracts for broadband projects in six states—though Gips said he was "completely unaware" of the stimulus money.

But hey, what's quid pro quo between (Democratic) friends?
