BAE Corrupts, McConnell Earmarks
BAE, a British military contractor, is under investigation by the Justice Department and in trouble in Britain so it would seem only right that Senate Minority Leader McConnell would earmark $25 million for them. It probably helps do the right thing when the company donates $500,000 to the McConnell Center at U. of Louisville and contributes $53,000 to his campaign since his 2002 re-election. Just to connect the dots, BAE is under investigation for bribery in Suadi Arabia, apparently the Arabs just aren't as sophisticated as Republican Senators.
