1. I hope he loses his shirt, especially since he developed his scam out of his experience ...

as "he was part of the so-called Gang of Seven that investigated a House banking scandal that fueled the perception of corruption in the lower chamber and helped usher in a Republican majority."

2. Is there an elected Republican who isn't a crook?

3. The Koch bros' dad worked for Stalin. And Hitler.

He was a big time rightwing repug, like his boys are.

I'd like to see if this repug connects to tRump, directly.

8. From Wikipedia

"Taylor purchased the Commercial Bank of Ivanovo with a Russian partner, Boris Bolshakov, a former KGB colonel and Supreme Soviet deputy,[6] and Bolshakov's wife Marina.[8] Taylor owns 80 percent of the bank as well as Columbus, a Russian investment company.[16]"
