Who's your corruption baby?

I guess since the left is having a good time claiming this is the end of civilization.

"WASHINGTON, March 11 — The arrest on theft charges of Claude A. Allen, who until recently was President Bush's top adviser on domestic policy, was an apparent fall from power that surprised and mystified his friends and former colleagues.

Mr. Allen, who resigned from his post as an adviser to Mr. Bush last month, was arrested on Thursday in Montgomery County, Md., where the police said he had swindled department stores out of more than $5,000 during the last year in a refund scheme.

On Saturday, neighbors and members of his church expressed confidence that he would be exonerated.

"I simply don't believe it," said the Rev. Joshua Harris of the Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg, Md., where Mr. Allen and his family are active members. "I think if we let the whole situation clear, the truth is going to come out about this."

The police accused Mr. Allen of going to stores on more than 25 occasions and buying items, taking them to his car and then returning to the store with his receipt. He would then pick up the same items he had just bought and return them for a refund, the police said. The incidents were said to have occurred while Mr. Allen was still in his job as Mr. Bush's domestic policy adviser.

Through his lawyer, Mr. Allen denied the charges, saying there was a mix-up concerning his credit card."

My, my.....what a crime.....Target....refund fraud. I can't tell you how many people we caught doing this during my law enforcement days. If guilty the guy will probably plead Kleptomania as I don't know anything Target has that is worth jail.

Well, let's see............I know this is getting boring, but hey, since the left wants to compare notes:


Drug trafficking (3), racketeering, extortion, bribery (4), tax evasion, kickbacks, embezzlement (2), fraud (12), conspiracy (5), fraudulent loans, illegal gifts (1), illegal campaign contributions (5), money laundering (6), perjury, obstruction of justice.

Then, Bush has a long road ahead to beat these records....

- The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance
- Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates (see above).
- Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation
- Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify
- Most number of witnesses to die suddenly
- First president sued for sexual harassment.
- First president accused of rape.
- First first lady to come under criminal investigation
- Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- First president to establish a legal defense fund.
- First president to be held in contempt of court
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad
- First president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court

Yup - a LONG way.
