more republican sleaze

Ethically-challenged Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist has a charitable organization called World of Hope, dedicated to fighting AIDS. Sounds nice, right? Well... it actually sounds like a political front organization for Doctor Bill.

Seems most of the foundation's $4.4 million came from just 18 sources -- unnamed in the tax forms. Many of the 96 total donors include companies with business before Congress. The foundation gave $3 million to organizations with ties to the Republican Party. The rest of the money -- almost 1/3 the total -- went to overhead, including over $450,000 in consulting fees to a longtime Frist fundraiser.

Forgive me for questioning whether a "charity" like this can be divorced from Frist's political operations. Looks to me this is just a way for Frist to get money from donors tax-free and funnel it to GOP allies like Franklin Graham, putting himself further in the debt of big donors and big business while solidifying his base for his Presidential aspirations in 2008. This might even be worse than his insider trading in the family's HCA stock.

Bill Frist is certainly a pig. Why does anyone believe him, ever? Especially after he diagnosed Terri Schaivo as "responsive."

It seems the Republicans know no bounds when it comes to unethical behavior. What's most annoying is their complete hypocrisy. In particular, Tom DeLay really is an asshole. Seriously, what a sad state of affairs when Frist and DeLay are allowed to get away with this nonsense.
