I Knew It! I KNEW It!
Zell Miller, everyone's favorite nutbar of a Neo-Confederate DINO, is one hell of a corrupt bastard:
7.11.05 REPORT: Zell Miller stole taxpayer money
Georgia political analyst Bill Shipp reports that former Sen. Zell Miller - the guy who piously brags about his own integrity - essentially stole $80,000 from Georgia taxpayers upon leaving office when he was governor.
According to Shipp, who was quoting a WSB-TV investigation, Miller "pocketed more than $60,000 in taxpayer funds earmarked for entertainment and other expenses at the Governor's Mansion." Miller "also picked up a check for more than $20,000 for 'unused leave' - a sum to which he was not entitled as a constitutional officer." Hilariously, Zell explained himself by "say[ing] that he was technically eligible to take the mansion money as his own because no one said he could not." Of course, "every other living governor from Jimmy Carter to Sonny Perdue told [WSB-TV] that they did not consider the mansion money theirs - and that they would not have taken it. The cash was meant for use at the mansion, not for lining the occupants' pockets, they said."
I knew it. I KNEW it! See, I have a theory, which I've advanced before: Every. Single. DINO/FOX Democrat. Is. Corrupt. And/Or. Incompetent. (Wes Clark doesn't count -- he's on FOX, but he doesn't whore for them; which means he won't be on FOX much longer.) Jim Traficant: Doing time, he's so fricking corrupt. Susan Estrich: Single-handedly took Dukakis from a fifteen-point lead to a fifteen-point deficit in three fricking months. Joe Biden: Plagiarizes from his betters. Zell Miller: Hand in the till. George Stephanopoulos: Incompetent mouthpiece for Clinton; his resentment at being axed led to his current career. Joe Lieberman: Dragged down the Gore ticket in 2000. Haven't actually caught him doing anything illegal, but then I never thought I'd catch Zell Miller being crooked. No one can be that fucking sanctimonious and actually be honest.
