Here's what we have on the Dishonourable Mr. Galloway:

THE TIMES: Galloway denies receiving £370,000 Iraq oil payments
The Times (UK) ^ | 4/22/03 | Melissa Kite
...here's links to the original Telegraph story and editorial posted by MadIvan, the documents on the Telegraph site, and the Sun and Independent takes posted by Pokey78.
Here is the account of how the reporter came upon these documents:
http://news.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2003/04/22/ngall122.xml&sSheet=/news/2003/04/22/ixnewstop.html
I'm afraid that the establishment media will simply stonewall this to death, despite the direct revelation having been made by one of its most loyal members, the Daily Telegraph. The antiwar group ANSWER has been directly financed by the Iraqi regime since its formation, in the form of "legal fees" paid by Baghdad to ANSWER's leading spokesman and organizer, former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark.
 
 
e.Peak (21/1/2002) news: politics: British MP speaks out on ...
... to illegally provide medicine for children in Iraq. Galloway resides
in the UK with his Palestinian wife...
Here's a brief backgrounder on Galloway: Bush and Blair: Wolves
 
 
The so-called Honourable Member for Glasgow Kelvin emerged last night as the paid mouthpiece for one of the most despicable regimes of torture and mass murder in modern times.
 
 
 
Or:
It doesn't get much worse than this. George Galloway is Britain's most active and visible peace campaigner. The Labour MP for Glasgow...Yesterday, The Daily Telegraph's correspondent in Baghdad, David Blair, unearthed papers detailing alleged payments from Saddam's intelligence service to Mr Galloway through a Jordanian intermediary.
 
 
Back to the top in honor of today's revelations.

David Blair is also the author of the excelllent book on Zimbabwe, Degrees in Violence. I trust him far more than I trust George Galloway.

My perception is that Galloway is in big trouble - on Sky News they showed a speech he gave to Saddam Hussein, saluting his bravery. Oops.

Also they showed David Blair and how he found the documents. The Telegraph's method was unimpeachable - Galloway is so done it is unbelievable.

What's the 'buzz' about this? I've read all the major papers, including the editorials, but it's difficult to get a read on what the 'man on the street' thinks.

If Galloway had a decent excuse or could declare his innocence, IMO he would not be trying to shoot the messenger, David Blair.

So we see the unraveling begin.

Rat bastards selling out their country, Iraqi children, their word.

He should be hanged as an example of what happens to traitors if proven guilty.

Time to collect evidence for a trial. The only network to cover it would be FOX.

Appreciate the comments; thanks for the pings-

I really think this is an excellent opportunity to investigate and expose the utter corruption, veneality, and moral bankruptcy of people like Galloway.

I am waiting with bated breath to learn what more will be revealed.

This is a hot story!

Yes, it always comes down to money & bribes, doesn't it?

I'd bear him a little grudging respect if he had taken his positions based on ideals alone, but this is insufferable.

If not, they will get a private call. Then they will resign to spend more time with their families.

Thanks to you and Gail for indexing these critical threads/events. There will be so much news of this type flowing out of Iraq, that it will be impossible to keep up without our great indexers.
