Delay's Bama Money Laundering

A potentially big story has come to light over the past couple of days concerning potential illicit fundraising practices in Alabama by Tom Delay.

Delay allegedly started an Alabama-based PAC (ARMPAC) solely to take advantage of our state's lax campaign finance regulations. Delay raised money in Alabama and then sent that money to a Texas based Delay PAC (TRMPAC) to help Republican candidates in the Lone Star state. ARMPAC also gave $11,000 to Bob Riley's 2002 gubernatorial campaign, but there have been no allegations leveled against Riley as of yet. For his part, Riley says he does not intend to return any of the $11,000 from ARMPAC.

State Rep Randy Hinshaw (D-Meridianville) has been leading the charge against such dishonest fundraising and has called on the AG's office to investigate the matter. True to from, Troy King does not seem eager to engage this issue and seems to be hoping the issue will just go away. I don't expect Hinshaw to let that happen.

Also in The Tuscaloosa News today was an editorial that stated that over $700,000 flowed in and out of the Alabama PAC, mostly to Texas. One can only assume that this was another leg of the Delay scam to take control of the Texas legislature so that redistricting could be accomplished. The result was a net defeat for Democratic congressmen in new gerrymandered districts.

If the Alabama GOP knew about this they should be indicted, if they didn't, they should be checked into the home for imbeciles.

i hear he was used to help scrushy give hundreds of thousands to siegelman and the lottery campaign. I know it sounds crazy, but there are no enemies at the top! scrushy's lobbyist eric hanson travelled in those circles so i wouldnt be surprised if it is worthy of investigation.

Why would the Alabama GOP be imbeciles if they didn't know about this? You didn't know. Are you an imbecile?

Why does this conversation want to be directed to Siegleman? His money flows were public record, which is why the US Attorney's and Eddie Curran have jobs for life sitting at their computers just perusing public files.

We have to rely on real journalists from the east and west coast to tell us in Alabama what scams are being perpetrated on our electorate.

I read in the Georgia newspapers that Ralph Reed is assuring the voters that he is all for the HOPE scholarships in Georgia, but he saved Alabama from the evils of gambling and gave low and middle class Alabamian's the God given right to go into debt sending their kids to college.

siegelmans files arent public because all his files reflect is the end of the line money laundered for months thru mazes of pacs handled by felon lobbyists and knuckledraggin wannabe's.

If his files were 'public' as you suggest, the feds would need no witnesses and siegelman would probably already be 'offed' by his mafia family bosses.

No matter how hard you try say "they did it too", 2006 will be the Year of the MoolahGate, which will hit Alabama Republican politicians hard when Scanlan and Abramoff start talking.

Zac, I know that there were some Dems involved in this scandal, but I haven't seen a full listing of Dems and Reeps involved. Any chance you may have found something like this? I'd be interested in knowing, especially with the AL officials who are running for election.

Here are some interesting facts from the ARMPAC disclosure.
First it gave out $349,000.00 more than it reported to have come in. That means it has not disclosed its donors for that money.
Second it gave $50,000.00 which was part of the 600,000.00 dollars that was given to Riley that had the illegal contributions from Scanlon.
I do not care what party your are with this type of behaviour does not give the public confidence in our government.

The RGA already disclosed documents showing the contribution they got from Scanlon was not spent in Alabama.

Oh give me a break anonymous. Let me guess, you were President of the Young Republicans at Troy State!

Let's see. Mikey gives a chunk of Indian money to the RGA, "unearmarked", I assume. One phone call, and RGA gets a brainstorm, let's give that Riley fellow a chunk of money similar to what we just got from Mikey. Duh.

randy hinshaw standing for anything other than what paul hubbert shoves in his mouth is incredible. this rube has been run out before, now he is back and he is nothing but a hubbert half wit lackey. FBI, please investigate hinshaw, hubbert and the family bank accounts for illicit payoffs.
