Setting a fine example …

File this one under: “Yet Another Unbelievable News Item from Camp Wingnut”:
“Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), a certified public accountant, had pushed for months for an internal audit of the National Republican Congressional Committee, according to GOP members, but the committee’s treasurer at the time was reluctant.

“Finally, at a recent meeting, the now former NRCC treasurer, Christopher J. Ward, relented, giving Conaway what was supposed to be an official internal audit from 2006. That document was a fake, the GOP members said. Even the letterhead on which it was sent was a forgery. (emphasis mine. I’m all agog.)

“Revelations about the falsified document touched off an unfolding scandal that has rocked the NRCC and spurred a criminal investigation by the FBI into the committee’s accounting procedures.”

No kidding?

I swear, every time I think the Republican leadership of our country can’t shock or surprise me any more, they go and shock or surprise me yet again. And imagine! We’ve got almost a year to live through before this most dishonest period in American history ends with George W. Bush’s ignominious departure.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Hat tip to TPM.

    It’s staggeringly telling about our species just how duplicitous, disingenuous, un-self-aware and down-right mean and nasty America’s conservative party can be.

    All that is what they want to hang onto?
