Today in Corruption

Three interesting items in the news, all bearing one degree of separation from Republican corruption:

Ohio broker charged with bribing BWC official attends Catholic mass every day. The article does not mention if he's deaf.

British banker who provided evidence to Enron prosecutors found dead in London park. Authorities say death is "unexplained".

And from the "too little, too late" file: Army plans to let Halliburton's no-bid contract expire and rebid with other firms.

"Taxpayers can breathe easier knowing that the days of $45 cases of soda and $100 bags of laundry are coming to a close," said Rep. Henry Waxman.
