Do I Even Have To Ask?

Now, being that we haven't heard hardly a word about Houston's David Bay Chalmers and his employees since they were indicted by the Feds in the Texas Oil-for-Food Scandal last month, one might wonder if the media's seeming silence on them -- a silence that would likely not exist if, say, Kofi Annan or his son had been indicted instead -- one must wonder if, perhaps, there's a reason that the US corporate media doesn't want to talk about Chalmers and Bayoil's connections to the scandal. Well, let's see if we can puzzle this out. Chalmers and his associates are oil men, running an oil company. The company is based in Houston, Texas. That part of Texas is home to both the Bush family and Tom DeLay, and is known to be a GOP stronghold. I think you know where this is headed. The fine folks at beat me to it. Turns out that, as of May 9, 2005, Chalmers has since the early 1980s given $36,300 to either the GOP or to Republican candidates, and only $1,000 to the Democrats. No wonder why they're not talking about him. It's why they didn't talk much nationally about Ed Schrock or Philip Giordano or Don Sherwood. To name a few.
