3. the question is backwards
It was wrong for Williams to accept money to push anything, if he's a real journalist. No real journalist is taking money from anybody but a news org, never mind the government.

4. WRONG question Mr. Williams!
leave it to a gutless, greedy, ethically-challenged, POS to frame the question in such a self-serving way.

THIS IS THE QUESTION:

Was it WRONG for ME to covertly take taxpayer money to provide propaganda for WH policies?

9. OMG! Williams was a "confidential assistant" to Clarence Thomas & OMG....
Williams has also served as confidential assistant to the Chairman of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas), presidential appointee to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, legislative assistant to U.S. Representative Carrol Campbell (former governor of South Carolina) and legislative aide and advisor to U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond.

7. Done. Here's a copy of the e-mail I sent:
Subject: I'd like our money back, please
To: arightside@aol.com

Speaking on behalf of all American taxpayers, the
right and proper thing for you to do is to refund to
the US Treasury the $240,000 in fees paid you to
propagandize NCLB.

No apologies are necessary or desired. Let actions
speak for your integrity this time.

You know it's what you ought to do. So do it.

10. I was a bit less polite.
"Not only was it wrong for the government to hire you for propaganda, it was wrong for you to accept bribe money.

The payoff must be returned to the American taxpayers."

11. Doesn't he need to be the first in line


to do some jail time?

This is terrible.

There should be a long, long line with familiar faces like all the Bushcrooks.

When can it happen?
