THE "FEDS" BAG ANOTHER IN LIUGATE AND IT IS THE CAMPAIGN TREASURER JIA HOU


Time's really up, John


New York Post - 

The feds yesterday arrested City Comptroller John Liu’s campaign treasurer, Jia “Jenny” Hou, alleging that she’s been funneling illegal donations into Liu’s campaign accounts while conspiring to mask the contributions using phantom “straw donors.”

Hou faces up to 60 years in prison. So the comptroller, who insists that he’s pure as the driven snow, has to be wondering today what she knew, when she knew it — and whether she’ll be willing to cut a deal to soften the potential hard time.
The indictment relates to fund-raising that took place in 2011 — presumably in anticipation of Liu’s once-all-but-certain mayoral run.

That’s much less certain now that the feds say Hou instructed volunteers to falsify signatures on donor forms, offered to reimburse a friend $500 for a campaign donation and taught workers how to hide the evidence of what she’d done.

Why the skullduggery?

Every donation, legal or not, could net Liu’s campaign up to $1,050 in public matching funds — which means, if the feds are right, that his staff was actively engaged in defrauding taxpayers of substantial sums.

And, in Liu’s own words, Hou has been right in the middle of it: “Jenny is the heart of the ’13 [mayoral] campaign,” he said last year — which, in turn, seems to mean that conspiracy, wire fraud and obstruction of justice are part and parcel of John Liu’s life.

Obviously, Hou’s arrest — and that of a top campaign donor last year — must lay to rest his mayoral ambitions.

More immediately, they mean that whatever moral claim he has remaining on the office he now holds has expired.

Though Liu himself isn’t named in the federal complaint, it’s simply not credible that he was unaware of Hou’s activities.

ROMNEY'S CHIMAERA


The three part's are made up of the GOP Establishment, their allies Republicans in Checkbook Only (RICO's) and Ron Paul.

It sole goal is to destroy Santorum, Newt., and win the nomination for Romney.

Then unleash it upon the Delegates at Tampa since no one will have the Required Majority going into the Convention.

But at the Convention Bellerophon riding Pegasus will slay Chimera and therefore defeat Romney, the GOP Establishment, Republicans in Checkbook Only, and Ron Paul.

Yes this is a little crazy but something to ponder

KEEPING UP WITH GRIMMGATETANIC

Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm, before he entered Congress, sought leniency for New York-based developer Thomas Kontogiannis


Staten Island  Rep. Michael Grimm urged a federal judge to spare a New York-based developer with three bribery-related convictions from serving a day in prison, the Daily News has learned.
Grimm sought leniency for Thomas Kontogiannis in 2008, before Grimm entered Congress as a Republican and after he had left a career as an FBI agent. Kontogiannis then faced sentencing on his third conviction — for helping funnel $1 million in bribe money to former Rep. Randy (Duke) Cunningham (R-Calif).
In a three-page letter, Grimm asked California Federal Judge Lawrence Burns to “be as lenient as the law will allow and your conscience accepts, granting him a noncustodial sentence.” Burns sentenced Kontogiannis to eight years.
Asked for comment, Grimm said in a written statement that he he was barred from discussing specifics of FBI activities.
“I can say unequivocally that I performed all such duties — including interactions with witnesses, cooperators and informants — in full conformance with FBI and (Justice Department) policies and applicable law,” he wrote. “The reality is that undercover officers and agents, as I was, have to work with criminals and deal with bad people regularly in the course of effectively investigating and ultimately enforcing the law.”

ROMNEY AND RAND PAUL PERFECT TOGETHER ?

In order to "WIN" we need everyone on board and with Rand Paul that may be the answer.
 
The delegates will make the final choice in Tampa and it will be a contested convention.
 
No one will have the "Required Majority"  and all kinds of wheeling and dealing will take place at the speed of 4G
 
THe Media and anyone who has 3G will be left behind, so all you 3Gers better get 4G so you are not left behind like the "MEDIA"
