'Pardongate' and UNSCAM

The NY Post reports that Mark Rich, the Billionare who was pardoned by Bill Clinton in 2001 is a key figure in the Oil-for-food scandal, probably the worlds biggest ripp-off. Rich, who fled to Switzerland in 1983 to escape an indictment for racketeering and tax evasion, also had ties to Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini. Clinton, in the final hours of his presidency pardoned Rich after being lobbyed by the Israeli prime minister and Rich's Wife, who donated more than $1 million to the dems.

What surprises me most is how much the Dems still LOVE this guy! And it's not just an, "oh, he was an ok President". On the contrary! It's nearly idol worship! Im surprised that the Dems haven't come up with an opposition ammendment to the Swartzeneger ammendment allowing former presidents named Bill to be able to serve in the presidency indefinately!!

DC Duck,
They don't need a "slick Willy" Amendment to the constution. They may have eight more years added to the Clinton dysentery with Prez. Hillary.
