Skip to comments.Paul Ryan donations from a now-convicted Wis. businessman could draw fire

Democrats have wasted little time blasting Republican vice presidential pick Rep. Paul Ryan over his federal budget plan, but a more obscure part of his record could also draw attention: his relationship with a convicted Wisconsin businessman.
Ryan accepted nearly $60,000 in contributions from businessman Dennis Troha and his family, records show. Troha was later indicted on campaign finance charges over an Indian casino he sought to open. During the casino application process, Troha said, Ryan (R-Wis.) called federal regulators at his request.
Ryan was not found to have violated any laws, nor was he a target or key figure in the federal investigation, people familiar with the inquiry said. He was among more than 20 politicians of both parties who benefited from Trohas largess. Troha was convicted of funneling illegal donations to other politicians, not Ryan, and Ryan donated Trohas contributions to youth programs when the businessman was indicted.

The punk in the White House must be defeated.
We can survive this one!
Ain’t gonna work.
0bama’s dug his hole too deep.
Whatever, let’s look into some democrats closets shall we media?

here’s hoping the rats attempt to make hey of this....

But that doesn’t matter to dems. He will be called a felon soon.
“He will be called a felon soon.”
But that doesn’t matter to me. I know the Democrat party is chock full of felons and worse.
And I know their name calling is merely a tactic—accusing their opponents of their own deeds.
Hmmmm. Nothing here about Oboma and Tony Rezko, or Oboma and Bill Ayres the domestic terrorist, or Oboma and Van Jones the self proclaimed radical communist. How odd. Not even a mention.(/s)
I wonder if he's related to Jon Corzine.
And obastard funneled half a billion taxpayer dollars to his cronies at Solyndra, but the compost doesn’t care about that...
OK Jerry, Lets see you investigate Obama’s donations from foreign sources.
Oh please just toss it back in there face just laugh it off and mention all of the democraps bs toss in Reid molests dead horse and sends them flowers afterwards my friend knows a florist in Vegas happens a couple times a month bfd
That did not take long.
REZKO, REZKO, REZCO
AYERS, AYERS, JONES, JONES, SINCLAIR, SINCLAIR!!!!
Sorry to have to play some of my trump cards. :-))
So we are supposed to believe that, although the WaPo new all the facts, they really believed the charge against Ryan “Could Draw Fire”, or were they just doing their job to help insure it “does draw fire” (erroneously). I have my guess.
The main thing with with the RATS is ‘GET THE LIE OUT THERE’.
That’s all that matters.
Not any more RATS. We have the real news people covering your azzes.
Guess it’s time for Ryan to give a Nixon Checker’s speech.
I gave that scoundrel Troha’s dirty money to homeless orphans, unlike Obama, who is luxuriating in a home from Tony Rezko now sitting in a prison for fraud and bribery. And yes, I’m keeping the cocker spaniel for my kids and that republican cloth coat for Janna.
“Paul Ryan donations from a now-convicted Wis. businessman could draw fire”
The Washington Post could print insightful, balanced news articles...but I doubt that too!
But, of course, if you mention any of the donations from Current Federal Prisoners, to Obama, why... YOU MUSS BE A RASSISS!!
Piss on the liberal Demonrats, the GOP-e members who OPPOSE Ryan, and above all the media pricks who will repeat such defamation but refuse to question the arrogant Marxist asswipe Obamugabe.
Ryan took money from Corazine? Oh, wait, Corazine hasn’t been arrested, much less convicted, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t guilty.
Such an easy template to follow: [insert Ryan deeds, acquaintances, or legislation here] could draw fire.
Eaxactly...any fool who throws a few dollars in the pot gets a picture...John Wayne Gacy got a picture.
I just read the entire Checkers speech. Love to see Ryan do it and invite Biden to reveal his entire net worth too, item by item. Ok, well, I can dream.
Remember, it's not whether it's true or not, or what the real facts are. It's the message. Get it out there first with the "news" media (the Dems propaganda arm), and it works to get the opposition off track and the public wondering.
Considering the wrecked state of our country, thanks to Obama and his democrats, I wouldn’t care of Ryan personally robbed banks if it would help to get that dictator out of office.
Democratic fundraiser charged in Citigroup fraud
Obama’s Biggest Donor Under Investigation
Washington Post “This man did nothing wrong,but we are going to bash him anyway”
Troha also gave heavily to former Governor Doyle. Doyle kept the money.
The conviction was for exceeding max donations by funneled money through family members. Money from his trucking company. Obama’s folks would call it bundling.
A fairly decent way to wash off any hint of taint. Unlike BO, who not only kept money from Tony Rezko, George Soros and other assorted crooks, but is now asking for more.
WHAT THE HAY...this is greievously troublesome, some may even say actionable in a court of law..others might say it’s scurrulous democrat crap.....i like that last explanation myself. This detailed and documented accusation aside....I dont see why the Dims don’t stick to important issues like the national debt, ruinous unemployment and the healthcare crisis...why dont they do that, u recken?
I recken it’s because they have no legs to stand on. I also recken it’s because they are a party that exists solely for the sake of power and control. They use fear, extorsion and lies to gain more traction. That’s what I recken! :-)
You are welcome sir!
