    Washington City Paper ^ | March 13-17, 1997 | Stephanie Mencimer
    With 12 years' experience prosecuting public corruption at the Justice Department, U.S. Attorney Eric Holder was a perfect choice to clean up a corrupt city. But after three and a half years, he may be moving on, and D.C. is still one of the most crooked cities in the nation. When President Bill Clinton tapped Eric Holder to be U.S. Attorney for D.C. in 1993, he immediately became the District's black sheriff in the white hat. The first African-American ever to hold the job, Holder's appointment broke a stretch of 12 years of white Republicans overseeing the predominantly black city....

    High-ranking members of Congress were flown to a lush Caribbean resort this month for a three-day conference planned and paid for by several of the country's most powerful corporations - a violation of federal ethics rules, critics say. Six members of the Congressional Black Caucus attended the 13th annual Caribbean Multi-National Business Conference in sun-drenched St. Maarten, including embattled Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel and New Jersey Rep. Donald Payne. Three New York City officials attended, including Comptroller William Thompson and Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr., as well as Gov. Paterson, who was the keynote speaker at a luncheon on...

    Tax payer funded bailouts seem to be the "in" thing in Washington these days. And it seems a new bailout may be on the horizon: pensions. The president of the National Retiree Legislative Network is begging congress to act and prevent a collapse of pension plans across the nation. Is anyone in Washington listening?!? “The ‘perfect storm’ is bearing down on the pension plans of America’s workers and retirees,” said Bill Kadereit, NRLN president. “Congress needs to close loopholes in pension laws that allow companies to use pension plan assets for restructuring and downsizing.” “Congress should immediately amend the Employee...

    Hugo Chavez, Iran, Russia, China, FARC, and drug cartels have a new ally: the United Auto Workers. The UAW's chief lobbyist announced they would put on a full court press in the hopes of preventing the Colombia Free Trade Agreement, saying, "We don't think we should be doing free-trade deals with countries that are murdering people because they're engaged in union activity." The UAW, Democrats, and leftists of South America seem to ignore one very important fact: the unions in Colombia desperately want the FTA to go through!

    Brazil's President and former labor union leader, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, called on the world to put an end to the current dominance of United States in the world financial system. He wants the world to adopt a new system that will be run by the G20 nations, and discard the G7 all together. The Brazilian Finance Minister, Guido Mantega, said "We refuse to take part in the G7 merely to drink coffee and we have to have a more important role in discussions". Ultimately, Brazil envisions, "a pact between governments to build a new financial architecture for the...

    The President of the "tiny" nation of Iran sent a congratulatory letter to President elect Obama telling him what Iran and the world expects him to do as President of the United States. Ahmadinejad says he expects Obama to govern based on, "friendship" and "non-interference in the affairs of others". In the letter Ahmadinejad also expects Obama to end, "policies founded on war, occupation, coercion, deception, intimidation of nations, discriminatory bilateral and global relations; policies and practices that have enraged all nations". So Ahmadinejad expects Obama to end the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, abandon Israel, disregard Iran's nuclear program, and...

    It didn't take long for the Israeli Foreign Minister to weigh in on President elect Obama's desire to talk to Iran: "We live in a neighbourhood in which sometimes dialogue . . . is liable to be interpreted as weakness." When asked if she supported talks between the U.S. and Iran: "The answer is no." Of coarse Obama believes we are showing weakness by not talking to Iran: "I'm not afraid of negotiating with anybody. I fear no man. Or woman."

    America seems to be asleep at the wheel once again: Brazil and Iran agree to take relationship to a new level. Iran's foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki said, "Iran affords South America major priority in its foreign policy and Brazil enjoys a special position in this respect.” While Brazil's counterpart, Mr. Amorim, said their meeting was a "turning point" that would lead to a new level of cooperation when the two President's meet in Tehran. Brazil's "special position" is in two areas: oil, and uranium. Brazil's decision to turn down an OPEC invitation in September was good. But with the price...

    It's kind of hard to justify using tax payer money, from the State of New York, on a trip to beautiful St. Maarten in the Caribbean. So N.Y. Gov. David Paterson has decided to use campaign cash to attend the Caribbean Multinational Business Conference. The conference takes place at the The Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino, a "destinations within a destination," that just happens to feature the island's hottest nightclub, Q-Club; the world-class Good Life Spa, and the Vegas-style Casino Royale, where you can live out your James Bond fantasies. The casino has 300 slots and a panoply of...

    The "Fire Breathing Liberal" and chairman of Barack Obama's Florida campaign, Rep. Robert Wexler, is facing a post election investigation by the F.B.I. into the way he invested huge sums of campaign cash. NRO's Mark Hemmingway goes into extensive detail with a three page article on the entire situation. Here's a simple breakdown of the article with a few extra tidbits of information the article left out: -Wexler invested campaign cash with an individual, Roy Amico, that isn't a registered broker. -Roy Amico and his friends/co-workers have a history of burning investors and running off with their cash. -Roy Amico...

    Zaida Harriman, a John McCain volunteer, who has stood outside the West Dadel Regional Library since early voting began, felt the wrath of Barack Obama supporters this week, she said. On Wednesday, as she held the elaborate political sign she made herself supporting the GOP ticket, she said she was spit on by Obama supporters. "I was standing here,'' said the retired school cafeteria worker, pointing to the median where all motorists pass who are coming to vote at the library complex at 9445 Coral Way. "These two young girls driving by in a car saw my sign, yelled and...

    Dolphins owner H. Wayne Huizenga said Sunday no date has been set for selling up to 45 percent more of the team to Stephen Ross, but the presidential election is among the issues weighing on his decision. That's because a Barack Obama administration is expected to mean higher capital-gains taxes. "He wants to double the capital gains tax, or almost double it," Huizenga said. "I'd rather give it to charity than to him." Ross purchased 50 percent of the team and Dolphin Stadium for $550 million earlier this year with the intention he would eventually become majority owner. "If you...

    Another rotten fish in the Pelosi Swamp. Florida congressman and Barack Obama Florida campaign chairman Democrat Robert Wexler has allegedly filed 25 amended FEC reports in the days immediately following Bill O'Reilly busting him in front of his Maryland home on camera. Robert Wexler's opponent Edward Lynch seems to have a compelling argument that there is much more to this story that needs to be revealed. Wexler's campaign allegedly submitted 25 amended FEC reports between 7/23/08 (one day after O'Reilly busted him) and 7/30/08. Here is the report from Wexlers Web:

    .....“I never thought I’d have to say this to an audience, but please behave,’’ moderate Elissa Harvey implored while the audience at the Coral Springs Center for The Arts blistered U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton. Wexler had the audacity to blame years of Republican deregulation for today’s economic woes, something that didn’t play with this audience. Wexler was joined on stage by Republican Challenger Ed Lynch and Independent Ben Graber, who are seeking his 19th Congressional District seat. Lynch and Graber took turns ripping Wexler for what they called a “culture of corruption’’ in Washington, D.C. during Wexler’s 12-year...

    ESTERO, FLA – In his introductory speech at a Palin rally here, Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott praised the GOP Vice-Presidential candidate, but then quickly went negative, “On November 4th, let’s leave Barack Hussein Obama wondering what happened,” the sheriff said. The crowd of thousands enthusiastically cheered the dig at Obama. Next up was conservative radio talk show host Mandy Connell who said that Obama “hangs around with terrorists” repeating Sarah Palin’s recent attack trying to link Obama with 1960’s radical Bill Ayers. The supporters again roared their approval– who got here hours before the rally almost filling the Germain...

    The Treasury Department plans to tap Neel Kashkari, an assistant secretary of international affairs and a former Goldman Sachs banker, to oversee the government's $700 billion financial rescue program, sources familiar with the situation said yesterday. Kashkari has been a close adviser to Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. on the credit crisis and helped draft the legislation for the massive rescue plan. He is expected to run the program on an interim basis until the Treasury finds a permanent head, according to sources who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment. Kashkari's replacement would...

    For Boca Raton accountant David Price, it was the thrill of a lifetime. One minute he's having breakfast at the Boca Diner, the next he's face to face with GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Things got stranger when another diner got too close, got wrestled to the ground by U.S. Secret Service agents, and then returned later to apologize to customers. Too bad it wasn't Sarah Palin. And the whole incident was staged by a local radio station. This morning, the Alaska governor was still in southwest Florida, where she had appearances this morning before flying to Palm Beach...
