Renzi gets publicity


Oh my, our man Renzi makes the first page of the Wall Street Journal!http://online.wsj.com/article_email/SB117708053389976977-lMyQjAxMDE3NzI3MDAyODAwWj.html

That investigation has now become a formal public-corruption probe by a federal
grand jury in Tucson. On Thursday, the grand jury authorized a search warrant of
a Renzi family business. Investigators have uncovered evidence that Mr. Renzi
received a cash payment from his former business partner, funneled through a
family wine company, after a second investor group pursuing an unrelated land
swap agreed to pay $4 million for the alfalfa field, according to people contacted in the course of the two-year investigation.

The article clarifies how Renzi was able to manipulate a federal land deal to benefit his business partner, James Sandlin.
"Congressman Renzi told me that the purchase of the Sandlin parcel was a matter
of national security, and that it was key to ensuring the viability of Fort Huachuca," Mr. Aries says. "He said that if we were to buy it before" upcoming hearings about the possible closure of the base, "he would give our swap priority -- a 'free pass,' he said, would be sure to get through the Natural Resources Committee," thereby ensuring its approval.

Yes, I think there is enough evidence now to assume that Gonzales got rid of Charlton to protect Renzi's yes-man ass. Renzi is a diehard supporter of Bush's catastrophe. Last October it was noted that this corruption probe was up, but it didnt matter, Renzi won re-election, yet again. I think this is very telling about the state of Dist 1 mentality, or lack of mentality, or however you look at it. It shows that the majority of voters in dist 1 are unable to spot corruption or crime. Literally, these folks see injustice as "good", as a criminal as "moral values"....delusional people vote for criminals.
