Libby paid his fine

$250,400 hmmm that must not be a lot of money for someone in public service I guess. I wonder what his salary was

Oh let me guess some you guys had a fund drive going on to help him pay it

Libby is independently wealthy, as is the rest of his family.

The money most likely came from what was left of his defense fund. There was a bundle in it... You know, the same kind of deal that Sandy Burglar had.

The rotten saga continues.....

What a joke. Libby's spokesman said he "paid it out of his own pocket". Probably yet another f**cking lie straight from the mouthpiece of a convicted f**king liar.

If he did, it probably got reimbursed from the $5,000,000 "defense fund" that the rich and powerful interests who created it to protect themselves from the truth the he could have uttered. The fine may as well have been ten cents.

Corporate and political interests who give money like that often as not do so not because they love the man, but because it is an investment. They would have something to lose if he spole out, and they were buying his silence.

Yet another slap in the face to the American public at large and anyone who hoped there was such a thing as "equal justice under law"

The usual apologists will step forward with their spin on it, "they all do it, look at_______________ who did it who was a democrat, etc, but it won't wash.


This Scooter Libby caper was a REPUBLICAN one.

It had nothing at all to do with Pelosi's plane rides, Clinton's tales, or anything like that.

Totally disgusting, and absolutely, completely predictable.

I will never understand the bigotry of that kind of political partisanship.
