I was just borrowing it, honest.

Them Repubs loves them that money.

The former treasurer for the National Republican Congressional Committee diverted hundreds of thousands of dollars -- and possibly as much as $1 million -- of the organization's funds into his personal accounts, GOP officials said yesterday, describing an alleged scheme that could become one of the largest political frauds in recent history.

For at least four years, Christopher J. Ward, who is under investigation by the FBI, allegedly used wire transfers to funnel money out of NRCC coffers and into other political committee accounts he controlled as treasurer, NRCC leaders and lawyers said in their first public statement since they turned the matter over to the FBI six weeks ago.



A doff of the Dope bowler to a loyal reader for bringing this to my attention.

Agreed. $1 million embezzeled from the NRCC is peanuts compared to any relationship Sen. Obama has or has had with Rev. Wright. Oh, the shame and the ignominy!
