Paul "Sex Machine" Wolfowitz gets a sweetheart resignation deal
He gets to stay until June 30th... and reaps a fab $400K bonus.

Nice work if you can get it!!

Fascinating article in the Financial Times about Paul "Sex Machine" Wolfowitz' (adulterous, but we won't mention that) relationship with Shaha Riza here... it's a must-read, if you can stomach it, and ties everything to Iraq, much as Wolfie wishes it wouldn't.

What gives, here? I mean, Wolfie claims he has enough goods on the Bank Board to "f them" if they "f with Shaha," and then, suddenly, the Bank caves and allows him a "graceful" exit.

Illegal wiretaps, much?

1. Does Shaha keep her job? Does she get a cut of the 400K?

Paul said she can be a bear when she's pissed.
Edit to add: Does Wolfie get socks in the deal. His old ones have holes.

2. I've been very curious as to what happens to Shaha Riza.
Why has nobody reported on this yet? She's enjoying a sweet, tax-free gig. Bet that was part of Wolfie's deal.

4. She's not even an American citizen is she?
She one o' them illegal aliens? Does Paulie have a "guest worker" deal with her?
On a serious note I have heard he also has a Spanish girlfriend who is like the Tasmanian devil. Almost wonder if Wolfie's wife introduced them?

5. Now, forgive me for thinking about Clinton here...
... but didn't adultery, even when part of a mutual agreement of convenience, used to be a big deal, and stuff?

Seriously, The Sex Machine has another girlfriend?? Dish! :-)

6. Seems like Wolfotwit had some dirt on some of the WB
members. Why else would they give him $400K?

I bet his former mistress keep her job for awhile. She has some secrets no doubt. Maybe she will get a generous book deal then resign. No matter how many crimes some people commit they get rewarded. Justice? Sometimes there is no Justice.

7.  This really burns my ass
If anyone of us so called citizens took his path and did what he did from the begining we would be in gitmo for ever and here this full fledged freak walks away free as a bird with a bonus .

If this is the way things work then it should work this way for all of us . Let all the drug users out of prison and the rest of us get a bonus and a pat on the back after our job was pulled away from us .

8. 400K?
According to HIM that would be about one SIXTH of the COST of the entire Iraq 'war' :)

Thanks for posting this VolcanoJen!
