Corruption

The Sunday Times did a little sting, revealing Republican lobbyist and Bush administration flunky Stephen Payne selling access to the president:

"I think that some things could be done," said Payne, adding that seeing Bush himself might be more difficult. With barely a pause, he continued:

"I think that the family, children, whatever [of Akayev], should probably look at making a contribution to the Bush library.

"It would be like, maybe a couple of hundred thousand dollars, or something like that, not a huge amount but enough to show that they’re serious."

They even have a charming little video.
