Did Hezbollah’s Republicans Get Defense Contractor’s Hookers, Bribes?

By Debbie Schlussel
Hezbollah’s biggest supporters in the U.S. Congress, Republican Congressmen Darrell Issa (CA) a/k/a “Jihad Darrell” and Joe Knollenberg (MI), and former Senator Spencer Abraham, all got thousands from defense contractor Brent Wilkes–the same man who “allegedly” bribed and procured limos and hookers for convicted former Republican Congressman Duke Cunningham (CA).
We’ve noted in the past how Jihad Darrell (Issa) steadfastly defended Cunningham–from the time his mansion and boat were raided until he was indicted. And we wondered why. We wondered if Jihad Darrell, too, was a recipient of bribes. Since the name of the contractor, Brent Wilkes, came out, we looked up his campaign contributions. We noted that Jihad Darrell got thousands from him as did several other Congressmen we’ve been looking at. (Knollenberg took at least $12,000 from Wilkes.)

Jihad Darrell, Joe Knollenberg, and Spencer Abraham:

Did Hezbollah’s Hookers Get Defense Contractor’s Hookers?

We note that three of those getting the most sizeable contributions from Wilkes also have something else in common. Issa, Knollenberg, and Abraham (Bush’s former Energy Secretary) all got thousands in contributions from Nijad Fares–the son of Hezbollah-installed Lebanese then-Deputy Prime Minister Issam Fares.
In exchange for those thousands, the three voted in 2000 for millions in our tax money to go to Southern Lebanon where it went straight to the Hezbollah coffers (and terrorist activities) and was never accounted for. The bill was introduced by Knollenberg and Abraham at the request of James Zogby of the anti-American, Arab American Institute.
Jihad Darrell has repeatedly praised Hezbollah, including in the Congressional Record. (Hezbollah murdered over 300 American military and civilians in Lebanon, blew up the Khobar Towers and the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Center, trained Al-Qaeda’s Iraqi insurgents, and helped build IEDs used against our troops in Iraq.)
So what did Issa, Knollenberg, and Abraham do for Wilkes in exchange for his campaign contributions? Did they emulate Duke Cunningham? Is that why Jihad Darrell was defending Cunningham, even after the feds raided his mansion? Did the three get bribes, limos, and hookers, a la Cunningham, too?
We don’t know. But we don’t think voters should continue sending Jihad Darrell and Knollenberg, tools of an Islamic terrorist group, to Congress. Hezbollah first, now a sleazy defense contractor who “allegedly” bribes with cash and hookers. What’s next?
Of note: Brian Bilbray, a Jihad Darrell protege who is running for Cunningham’s seat, also took thousands in campaign contributions from Brent Wilkes. And who knows what else he took.

Looking at this post and the post below you can see why capitalism really is a moral system.

Deb,
This is really bad news for us folks down here in the 50th Congressional District. There was an open primary in March that had 16 people running for the Republican slot (which included our favorite, Howard Kaloogian). Kaloogian was without a doubt the best choice, but no one voting in this primary was paying attention and instead, Brian Bilbray won the primary. Now we’re faced with Bilbray vs. that bat shit crazy educrat, Francine Busby this November. Great! Just another reason to stay home on Election Day this November.
YES, IT IS VERY SAD THAT HOWARD KALOOGIAN DID NOT WIN. HOWEVER, YOU HAVE ANOTHER CHOICE, ERIC ROACH, WHO IS CHALLENGING BILBRAY IN THE PRIMARY FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION (THE PREVIOUS PRIMARY WAS ONLY TO FILL THE SEAT UNTIL ELECTION DAY). THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW CASES WHERE WE CAN LIKE A ROACH. VOTE FOR ERIC ROACH, NOT BILBRAY.

Spencer Abraham should get a record deal. I could see him with a rap record.

I said it before and I’ll say it again. This is not the Conservative party that our parents and grandparents supported. This is the the Neo-Cons that support the commies from the DLC
