More than 2 years ago, a grand jury in Guam was investigating Jack Abramoff, and his connections to Carl Gutierrez, who was the Governor of Guam at the time. Not a problem for Jack. President Bush fired the prosecutor and the investigation died.

What was Jack Abramoff doing in Guam that warranted a grand jury? It involved corruption, and the smoking gun was a series of $9,000.00 checks from a slush fund which Abramoff controlled. Why not $10,00.00 checks? Because then the IRS would have been notified.

Whatever it was it apparently wasn't important enough for the liberal bush hating media to make any real fuss over it.

This isn't quite as bad was what Nixon did, but it's definitely in that territory and there was no peep about?
