He's An Abscammer!

FBI Tape Reveals John Murtha's Role In Abscam Scandal

Sean Hannity: It was one of the biggest congressional scandals in our country's history. It was called Abscam Undercover FBI agents posed as Middle Eastern businessmen and attempted to bribe members of the U.S. Congress in return for political favors for a fictional Arab sheik.


Now, 31 officials were targeted and when the dust cleared, one senator and five members of the House were convicted on bribery and conspiracy charges.

But one man who was caught on tape with the undercover agents was never indicted. His name: Congressman John Murtha of Pennsylvania. Now, after 26 years, the tape of Murtha's meeting is finally being seen by the public.

Murtha has gone from being an average Marine, to a world class dirtbag! I didn't know he was involved in Abscam so I'll have to read the article provided. Wasn't McCain also involved in that?

BTW DONAL thanks for that beautiful article from the Rabbi three or four posts down. He's right, when everything seems to be going wrong take the Sabbath day and make it a day of worship of G-d and joy for your loved ones.

Now imagine if this was a Republican.

A Republican "unindicted coconspirator" (which is what Murtha's status was during that investigation, something no one seems to be able to explain today).

What are the odds it would be front page news until November 7th?

Now that the full tapes are out and it is clear Murtha was up to his neck in this bribery scandal ...

"culture of corruption" anyone?

By the way, any news on the upcoming trial of Rep. Jefferson? The man with the "golden refrigerator"? They have charged him, haven't they?
