Coingate Gets Blown Wide Open
Check this out, courtesy of Pounder at DailyKos:
H. Douglas Talbott, a former top aide to two Ohio governors, told federal authorities that Republican coin dealer Tom Noe persuaded him to contribute $2,000 to President Bush's re-election campaign - then reimbursed him for the donation, The Plain Dealer has learned. Talbott appeared Wednesday before a federal grand jury in Toledo that is investigating whether Noe illegally reimbursed as many as two dozen contributors to a Bush fund-raiser in October 2003. The grand jury is looking into whether Noe made the reimbursements to circumvent campaign finance laws, which limit individual contributions to $2,000.Wow! That's 200,000 Abraham Lincoln medallions! In a just world, this would be on tonight's TV news. But somehow, I doubt it will be.
What odds will you give of Newsmax mentioning the words "conduit contribution"?
About as good as Ann "The Mann" Coulter getting a date a week from tonight.

Speaking of vibrators and Man Coulter, just who does she think she's kidding?
