Top Democrat Financier Hassan Nemazee Busted for Fraud

You don't hear Nasty Pelousy shrieking about the Culture of Corruption much these days. To the long list of reasons for this, we can add the arrest of Hassan Nemazee. From CNN:

A New York man was charged with allegedly defrauding Citigroup Inc. (C) out of $74 million in loans.
U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan and the Federal Bureau of Investigations say Hassan Nemazee, with residences in Manhattan and Katonah, N.Y., fraudulently applied for the loans for Nemazee Capital Corp., of which he is chairman and chief executive.
Federal prosecutors contend Nemazee obtained the money by giving the banking giant "numerous documents that purported to establish the existence of accounts in Nemazee's name at various financial institutions containing many hundreds of millions of dollars," the Justice Department said in a statement. "In fact, those were fraudulent and forged documents."

For some reason CNN doesn't get around to mentioning Nemazee's impressive political resume. Here's what it says at Wikipedia:

Nemazee is also known as one of the top political donors in the United States.
During the United States presidential election, 2004, Nemazee was a supporter of John Kerry and a major contributor to his campaign. He was the New York Finance Chair for the Kerry campaign, and is currently the national finance chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. With Nemazee as the national finance chair, Chuck Schumer's DSCC in 2006 raised $115 million, outpacing the NRSC by substantial sums, and helping the Democratic Party take control of the Senate. During his presidency, Bill Clinton nominated Nemazee to fill the position of U.S. Ambassador to Argentina.
More recently, Nemazee served as Finance Chairman to Hillary Clinton's 2007-08 presidential campaign, and also donated $50,000 (the maximum amount) to Barack Obama's Presidential Inaugural Committee. In addition, Nemazee was a bundler for the 2009 Presidential Inaugural Committee.

I'm sure eventually CNN will get around to telling its readers all about it.

Hassan Nemazee, jailbird and DSCC Finance Chairman.

This will get no traction in the news, wrong party and he doesn't have the sinister hat like Abramoff....but it's probably still Bush's fault.

Van Velsing,

I don't know how you do this day in and day out, but thank you. You are a great American, a true patriot, and a born leader.

Keep it up my friend. We need sites like this now more than ever.

Any relation to "Hassan bin Sobar"?

Damn! I don't think I'll change my party registration; the Donkeys obviously need all the HONEST and PRO-AMERICAN people they can get!

A Democrat caught in 'shenanigans'?

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked! No doubt the Attorney General will prosecute him to the fullest exten.... um, oh.


No doubt we'll soon be seeing the official "rug-lifter and broom" combo coming from the most transparent administration in history, eh?

Dance monkeys, dance!

Because my religion of the church of Socialist Secular Evolution tells me that monkeys are superior to human beings, who are just an eco-cancer on the earth.

So if you conservatives are monkeys, and us liberals are humans and humans are a horrible tumor on the earth, that means...oh wait a MINUTE!

At 10 PM Central time the CNN web site didn't even have the story posted! You don't suppose the editors had anything to do with that, do you? Nahhhhhh...could never happen. Just remember, you can't spell Clinton without CNN.

It's just a never ending string of criminal activity with the communists. Lie, steal then murder...

I'm just wondering when they plan on rounding us up...

OR trying to...

With their plans crumbling and the populace waking up and becoming wise to the daily felonies and crimes I wonder when the first shot is going to be fired?
