Clinton Library Scandal Brewing?

Just where did all the money come from to buy the world's largest double-wide trailer, fill it with porno mags, and call it the "Clinton Presidential Center"? We all know that since Democrats are only friends of the poor and downtrodden, it couldn't have been them that contributed.

On November 22, 2004, The NY Sun reported that millions of dollars had been "donated" by wealthy Arabs to fund the library. An interesting donor list is the result. Jewish, Moslem, and a Chinese group that is probably (like most Chinese companies) a front for its communist, government all chipped in money.

Among the more notable (notorious?) donors is Denise Rich, ex-wife of shamed financier Marc Rich who was convicted of evading $48 million in taxes (but remember, Democrats are the party of the middle-class!) and ran off to Switzerland in 1984. Rich stayed out of America for 17 years, until he was pardoned by Bill Clinton shortly before BJ left office. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were outraged.

What did Rich do with his newfound freedom? Well, ABC news says Rich promptly got involved with the Oil-For-Food-Scam. Rich was a key figure in allowing the swindle to take place by providing middle-man services between pipelines and politicos.

And a U.S. criminal investigation is looking into whether Rich, as well as several other prominent oil traders, made illegal payments to Iraq in order to obtain the lucrative oil contracts.

"Without that kind of middleman, the system would not work because the major oil companies did not want to deal with Iraq because there was a mandated kickback," said human rights investigator (finally, one's on OUR side-Ed.) John Fawcett.
How deep does the sleaze of the Clinton Library go? More importantly, can we get the word out on it?
