Cleanser X always left a shadow of the stain on Kitchen Sink A, never powerful enough to rid the spot completely. Comet--on the other hand--the Magic Eraser of the day--successfully scoured the icky mess sparkling clean from Kitchen Sink B.
Something ain't too clean in the kitchen sink of Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Oviedo).
He's been accused of computer fraud by Clint Curtis. Tagged by CREW as one of the top 20 Most Corrupt members of Congress, Feeney has ties to ousted House hammer Tom Delay and lobbyist golf buddy Jack Abramoff. Although the FBI is all over Feeney about that Scotland trip. the Florida rep sets up a legal defense fund, and accepts $5000 from Oviedo businessman Tyng-Lin Yang--Feeney's former employer during his Florida Speaker of the House days when he was accused of computer fraud.
A full complete circle--much like that wicked stain.
If that's not enough to commit political suicide, Ralph Gonzalez--president of the Strategum Group, an Orlando political consulting firm, who listed Feeney as a client--ends up dead with two other guys--one being Jason Drake, an ex-Marine whose picture of Albanian children rubbing his head was snapped back in 1999 at a NATO run refugee camp in Stenkovac near Skopje, Macedonia.
The mainstream press reported the deaths as an apparent double murder-suicide sparked by a lovers' quarrel.
Meanwhile, Patrick McHenry (R-NC) gets outed for his intimate connection with Drake and admits it.
As we mentioned yesterday, Drake, a former marine, also is alleged to have a strong relationship-- both intimate and business/political-- with right-wing Congressman Patrick McHenry (R-NC). When I spoke to McHenry's office about this they at first insisted they never heard of Drake then, confronted with specifics, admitted they know him. They refused to put Congressman McHenry on the phone. There is every indication that McHenry may have been one of the Republican elected officials who was using the services of the gay prostitution agency connected to Drake. Our pals over at the BradBlog points out the connections between Florida's ultra-corrupt, vote-tampering congressman, Tom Feeney, and Gonzalez and reports the threat to expose the list of Republican elected officials who were using the gay escort service.
Tom's name surfaces again, linked to yet another stain.
Feeney better invest in a truckload of Comet.
