Fristy Bidness...

FEC finds Frist violated law by failing to disclose $1.4 million personal loan

CREW's complaint alleged -- and the FEC agreed -- that Frist 2000, Inc. failed to disclose a $1.44 million loan taken out jointly by Frist 2000, Inc. and by Frist's 1994 campaign committee, Bill Frist for Senate, Inc. The result of the discrepancy was to make it appear that Frist 2000, Inc. had significantly more money that it actually had.
In June 2000, Senator Frist took $1 million of the money that had been contributed to his 2000 Senate campaign and invested it in the stock market, where it promptly began losing money. In November 2000, Senator Frist sought to collect $1.2 million he had lent his 1994 Senate campaign committee. As a result of the stock market losses, however, Frist 2000, Inc. did not have enough money to repay the loan. Senator Frist solved this problem by having the 1994 and the 2000 campaign committees jointly take out a $1.44 million bank loan at a cost of $10,000 a month interest. Frist 2000, Inc. did not report this debt on its FEC disclosure forms. [more]
I heart CREW.

"Fristy Bidness"...is that the new meaning for "Frisky Business"?? LOL!

Well, Dr. Quack MD. really got what was coming to him. And "Frisky business" is right S-Q. After reading Tom Flocco's article about "Frisky" Frist, the man doesn't have a prayer for the 2008 Presidential election. He need to say 'no' to graft, hookers, and given fake diagnosis!

Frist....another Republican gem spouting Christian values with a constant drone, but unwilling to live up to real Christian values like honesty, integrity and respect for others. I will count him among the Christian Wrong...I'm making a list and checking it twice.

SPB:

It is VERY VERY important that Bill Frist run for President. Please don't do anything to dissuade this man. He is NOT running for re-election to the Senate - because he is gearing up for a WH run.

He is SO hosed politically that he will never even get on the ballot. He is, literally, in the tank.

LET HIM GO FOR IT! Considering the things he's been up to, a little personal loan is the least of his problems. His crediblity sucks even with the Stepford Republicans.

Wasn't Frist voted to be the Republican's pick for President 08.
Well who's left to run. The way things are going maybe Tom DeLay should be the next President. He can do days in WH and nights in jail. Poor Chris Matthews he picked Frist now what will he do as he publicly supported a criminal for President.

Frisky Frist will never make it on the ballot. I can sneeze the wrong way and that man would never be the next Prez. After reading about Frisky Frist in the "Debbie does Dallas" drama in the Tom Flocco article, he certainly lose in the "family values" catagory! And if Frist is last hopeful for the GOP next Prez, put Homer Simpson's name on the ballot!

Last nite i was listening to Mr Savage of the "SAVAGE NATION"and what he said was indicative of the change in peoples views.

Now this is a SERIOUS change of heart.He said he was going to,from now on, listen to and read from liberal sites BECAUSE he said he knew what they were--CORRUPT--but was sick and tired of being conned
by CONSERVATIVE do godders(while they rob people blind) acting as HONEST folk when in fact they are just as bad or WORSE.

He said he would rather deal with the known then the unknown.

He really nailed HASTERT for defending a man who got caught with the tainted $$$ in his freezer and who pushed BUSH to seal the records for 45 days. I think he shook up a lot of his audience.He said that when are congressman and senators above the law?...ill get the link

Hello All,

Speaking of Homer-remember this classic line?

Homer Simpson, talking to Bart after he got into trouble at school:
"We're going to send you to another school! And if you get kicked out of that school, you're going straight into the Army, where you'll be sent to America's latest military quagmire. Where will it be? North Korea? Iran? Anything possible with Commander Coo-Coo Bananas in charge!"

Even Homer is smarter than Dubya..

In a conciliation agreement reached with Frist 2000, Inc. and the committee's treasurer, the FEC stated that the campaign committee violated the law by failing to report the loan on the 2000 Year End Report and by failing to report the repayment of the loan on the 2001 Mid-Year Report. The FEC fined Frist 2000, Inc. $11,000, as required by statute.

(How disappointing this must be for the red meat bloggers that post here. Just a slap on the wrist for Frist when most here would want life with hard labor.)

I was clueless before 10/28/05. Oh, I felt a sourness in my soul about all that was happening in our country and our world but that day before I listened to Mr. Fitzgerald, at work live on the radio, I thought, "who is this mean man who wants to jail reporters?". As he spoke I changed, and I thanked God and Patrick Fitzgeralds's parents for bringing him into the world and U.S.A. :) I wonder how much will be changed by this catalytic warrior and seeker of the truth will the next time he speaks before and for the public as he did on 10/28/06...

Jan,

No, I didn't buy my own cake. the cake was pre-ordered. And i had to go with a member of my family to get it! As I said, the cake was small. So, I can only put my first name on it. I had to go get the cake because I had to choose what I want to put on the cake. No big brithday party just a few family members. And actually, the birthday was yesterday not today. I am celebrating today because my busy schedule yesterday. I wish birthdays were on weekends! Besides, I had a nice B-day dinner yesterday and an interesting prediction on my horoscope yesterday. People look at birthdays as the important thing. But, to me, it is the family and the ones that you love and care for are the most important. Besides the emails, B-cards, and calls that I have gotten yesterday and today, I'm satisfied! I only wish someone gotten me a ticket to one of the NBA playoffs! That would be nice!

Iraq war will hurt GOP in fall elections, pollster says

"MACKINAC ISLAND – The war in Iraq has become so unpopular that it could cost Republicans control of Congress, statehouses and governor races around the country, national pollster John Zogby said Friday.

He said 70% of voters believe the U.S. is headed in the wrong direction, adding, “I have never seen a number like that since I’ve been polling.”

He said 68% of voters believe the war in Iraq wasn’t worth the loss of American lives. He added, “Americans want their wars to be won, they want it won quickly and their troops home and out of harms way.”

Iraq is the top issue for U.S. voters, immigration is second most important.

The economy is third most important nationally. Although economic indicators are generally good, working Americans worry about gas prices and about losing their health care coverage and pensions.

The unpopularity of the Iraq war has cost President George W. Bush and Republicans their grip on the issue of terrorism as “their ace in the hole.”

Bush is so unpopular he can’t help Republican candidates get elected this year. “I don’t think you’ll see him in Macomb County,” he said.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani and U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, are the only national Republicans who can transcend their party’s growing unpopularity."

My friend is very happy about the good comments folks posted about my new little squirrel friend. Thanks!

I have a bunch of extra OT to put in the next couple of weeks. A Night Owl is OK, but an Up All Night Owl Night After Night is not OK! I may have to disappear off the blog and meet my deadlines. I hope everyone plays nicely with each other while I am busy. ;-)

Speaking of which, where did all the folks go who post all kinds of things about Mossad, etc.? Maybe now that Israel's navy is going to train with NATO, they are all out getting some Xanax to calm down.

Mr Libby was charged last year on five counts of obstruction of justice, perjury and making false statements during the investigation. He is the only official to be charged, but Mr Rove has testified five times before a grand jury and remains in legal limbo.

Mr Libby has won some early rounds. Last week, Judge Reggie Walton ordered Time and the Washington Post to hand over some internal documents, but dismissed other demands as a “fishing expedition”.

.... Another member, James Woolsey, former CIA director, says he lent his support because “I’ve never thought there was an underlying crime. There has been no indictment for the underlying crime. If you allow a special counsel without any kind of Department of Justice supervision to investigate anything that is interesting, even if there is not a crime, the entire system can get out of whack.”

He says the 1982 act that protects the identities of CIA agents and triggered the investigation was very narrowly drafted. “This is not even close.”

Melanie Sloan, CREW's executive director, said "it is gratifying to see that the FEC recognizes that Senator Frist's campaign committee broke the law. Apparently, the FEC disagreed with Sen. Frist's aide's dismissal of the complaint as 'incorrect' and 'politically driven.'"

If one goes back into CREWS filings with the FEC they will see that many valid complaints have been ignored for quite some time.

I'm sure this new FEC action is very gratifying for Sloan and this tenacious group.

I wonder if the number of violations of campaign reporting laws would go down if more of an effort were made to name the particular individuals who sign off on inaccurate reports.

In this case, the FEC letter specifically mentions Dawn Perkerson "in her official capacity as Treasurer" of Frist 2000, Inc.

The FEC letter also mentions that the Commission "dismissed the matter as to Sen. William H. Frist, M. Lee Barfield, and Linus Catignani" on February 17, 2006.

Here's a direct link to CREW's legal documents page:
CREW: Frist 2000 FEC Case - Legal Docs

I haven't had a chance yet to review the other documents but I hope appropriate consequences for the actions of all the individuals involved are realized.
