Boxer’s sweetheart deal with reinstated Indian tribe (Boxer The New Abramoff)
Hot Air ^ | October 30, 2010 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 10/30/2010 8:02:16 PM PDT by red flanker

In 2006, Democrats successfully won back control of Congress by highlighting corruption scandals involving Jack Abramoff, a lobbyist specializing in Indian tribes.

But does one Democrat in particular have a problem of her own with her interventions on behalf of a California tribe that now operates a casino just outside of San Francisco? Barbara Boxer pushed a bill reinstating a tribe designated as “defunct” by the BIA 40 years earlier through legislation that she also amended to remove a prohibition on gaming on any land the tribe owned. Rick Manning at The Hill says the deal — and what ensued — would have “made Jack Abramoff blush”:

I read about this earlier today.  ANOTHER reason to repeal the 17th Amendment.  If these 'country club' Senators weren't so damn comfortable . . .

Were I Fiorina’s communications adviser, it would be on the air right now — with different versions of the ad appearing every 12 hours until Tuesday evening. It is kick-a** time!

Get it to Drudge et al. Ask Rush to mention it on Monday!!! Mark Levin and Savage would put it on the air if we get the info to them.

To BobP: Great editing on Boxer. She is an ahole and it is time that we called her that. What a disgrace to the American people.

Hopefully next week, Congress will be largely asshole-free.

As Robespierre once said (or should have said): Let the purge begin.

Newsmax states Pelosi to retire if Republicans win. Interesting is the “Whitehouse Insider” mentioned that the Deocrates were trying to boot her fanny and she was fighting back. Looks like she may be yielding.

During his “Reign of Terror”, Robespierre liked to literally chop off his enemies’ heads. Today, he’d be like Alan Grayson with a brain.

Babs Boxer, epitome of the 'Rat "culture of corruption"

don't miss the tale of how a non-existent Indian "tribe" got a fictitious "chief" whose claim to "Native American" lineage is totally bogus:

OK, not quite literally. He condemned them, and the executioners let the guillotine give “severance pay” to the prisoners.

In addition to the obvious corruption of millions of dollars steered to son of Babs Boxer, there is the utter fraudulence of this Democrat-concocted "tribe" that does not exist except in the fatuous imaginations and fake legal documents concocted by the Demagogues.

This "chief" Saris is a novelist, academic, and utter charlatan who has no more claim to be "chief" of a tribe demanding a casino than any of us do. At most he might be 3 or 5/64th of a drop of a "mixed" tribal concoction that does not exist anymore, and NO ONE has any evidence for Saris' claim, NO ONE. He is as much entitled to this casino scam as Ward Churchill.

Casino Scam Involves Babs Boxer, her son Dougie, and CHRIS LEHANE


"Kenwood Investments consisted of Democrat heavy-hitters Darius Anderson, Chris Lehane, Stuart Sunshine, and Doug Boxer. According to newspaper reports of the time, Doug Boxer made $8 million in legal fees."

Chris Lehane.... there's another Demagogue scumbag still sliming around since the Clinton years.... in on the take for this casino scam.

It is worth noting that Robespierre ultimately had his own meeting with Monsieur Guillotine. Anyone who might think the U.S. Revolution and the French Revolution had much in common needs to think again. Much Statism and Radical Leftism got its start with the French Revolution. Not much of an improvement, if at all, over Monarchy.

Actually, Dumb-as-a-box-of-rocks is Barbara’s real last name, possibly given to her by an Indian tribe.

You said it. And not only that, but stop apologizing/backtracking for speaking the truth.

I agree. At least they don’t pretend to have an iota of intelligence, they are not corrupt and they don’t pass judgement of fellow rocks.
