Safavian cried like a scared little bitch as he was sentenced...
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 12:07 PM by givemebackmycountry
Now THIS is a feel good story.
It made me smile this morning.
It made me happy.

Safavian, 39, a former chief of staff for the General Services Administration, wept as he told Friedman that he knows now he never should have given Abramoff inside information about government-owned real estate that the lobbyist wanted to acquire. At the time, Safavian said, he thought what he was doing was innocuous. "I didn't see anything wrong in helping Jack," he said.

Yeah... well ain't that sweet.

Neil G. Volz, a former Ney aide, went to work with Abramoff, went on the Scotland golf trip and was a central witness in the Safavian trial. Friedman said he was revolted by Volz's testimony that government officials prepared sworn declarations about lobbyist-paid trips based on what "would pass the smell test" -- not what was true. "I wanted to go home and take a shower," the judge said.

Judge Friedman said he felt like he had to go home and "take a shower".
Now that's EXTRA funny.
I can see that.
When you are in such close proximity to evil swine like this BFEE winner, how could you not need a shower?

edited to remove a vile statement that I made before I had a second cup of coffee.

1. Judge Paul Friedman really let him have it
"There was a time when people came to Washington because they thought government could be helpful to people," said U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman. "People came to Washington asking not what government could do for them and their friends but what they could do for the public."

2. It reminds me of "Duke" Cunningham.
Watching disgraced criminal Cunningham sob for the cameras was truly grotesque. His actions showed that he cared nothing about his consitutents, his Congress, or his country. He cried because he got caught. I assume this Safavian crook's weeping had the same motivation.

This current crop of Republicans is about the most pathetic bunch of losers I have ever seen assembled in one place, from the Chimp and his vile Vice President Dick right on down. Let's throw 'em all out!

4. Here's a fine example of the problem with the Bush administration
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 11:57 AM by DoYouEverWonder
From the top, down it's anything goes. They must think the WH is Outback Steakhouse, No Rules.

When you have a failure of leadership at the top, then you have a breakdown of discipline all the way down the line. An idiot like Safavian sees nothing wrong with his actions because his bosses never told him that he was doing anything wrong. More likely they encouraged his wrongdoing. Has a matter of fact, the only way to get ahead in the Bush WH is to be good at wrongdoing.

5. gmbmc, Your glee and happy acceptance of prison rape as an integral
and valid part of the American justice system is depressing.

I'm glad to see that the perp went down and is doing time. That doesn't mean rape is acceptable, any more than other forms of torture, human degradation, or violence is acceptable.

I hope yours was just an ill-thought out post and not a reflaction of your true feelings about prison rape.

Thanks for opening my eyes to what should have been obvious.
It's corrected.

10. You are welcome! It's easy to get carried away - been there myself -
- and you are obviously a much better person than that.
