This is just too good.
According to recent reports, our very own Nowhere Man, Alan Mollohan, allegedly is funneling federal money to several non-profits in West Virginia. The allegation is, in short, that those non-profits then somehow funnel some of the cash back to him, in the form of campaign donations or in some sort of related business deals. It was all in the Wall Street Journal last Friday. I'll dissect all the details later, but this is just too good to pass up.
The supreme irony here is that one of them is The Institute for Scientific Research (ISR). The ISR was in the news back in the fall for the exorbitant salaries that were/are being paid to their top corporate officers. Look at that name: The Institute for Scientific Research. Do you think the employees at a whizbang, techie type place such as ISR, use email? I'd bet my meager paycheck they do. Hell, my mother has email, and she can barely figure out how to turn on the pc.
Yet, Mollohan is supposedly a big supporter and helps acquire federal grant funding for the ISR?
Alan Mollohan's Wikipedia entry states that he has the distinction of being the only member of Congress, without an email address.
Only in West Virginia, folks.
