Good riddance to bad rubbish

Embattled HUD chief resigns, cites family
Jackson makes no mention of investigation, Democratic pressure

Jackson, 62, has been fending off allegations of cronyism and favoritism involving HUD contractors for the past two years. The FBI has been examining the ties between Jackson and a friend who was paid $392,000 by Jackson’s department as a construction manager in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

I guess Americans just sort of expect this sort of thing from the Bush administration as a matter of course. Mike Brown, Alfonso Gonzalez… and the list of unqualified indivuals, in over their heads just goes on.

I wonder what the chances of his being brought to  justice are?

Infortunately, incompetency isn’t a prosecutable offence.

Fortunately, there is the whole cronyism aspect that might find purchase.

The next administration might just spend a lot of time prosecuting ex-Bushies.

Otherwise, it’s moral hazard for everybody! Par-tay!


Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce

Schadenfreude overdrive

March 1, 2008

Financial troubles continue to mount for Daniel Sadek, the subprime lending company founder The Register profiled last year as the “high roller of home loans.”

A mortgage broker (“Quick Loan Funding”) being done in by failure to repay loans and pay his property taxes.

I guess the Ferrari isn’t the only thing this guy helped to crash. His company. A crappy movie. A “girlfriend’s” career.

Next up: the economy.

Why the guy who founded Oakley would fritter away any part of his fortune to help this feckless cunt defies logic. Surely he never expected to get back his $7.5 mil?

Oakley’s are so 90’s anyway. Back to Ray-Ban, once I remove the stench of this asshole off my monitor.
