GOVERNOR GEORGE RYAN CORRUPTION SCANDAL 

November 7, 2007 

"S" Republican Gov. George Ryan of Illinois was convicted on 18 corruption charges. Scott 
Fa well, - his Chief of Staff was also convicted along with 76 former state officials, lobbyists, 
truck drivers and others. All stemming from the illegal sale of government licenses, contracts and 
leases by state employees during his prior service as Secretary of State. The initial investigation 
began after 6 children were killed in a tragic auto accident. The bribes put thousands of 
unqualified truck drivers on the road - one that killed the six children of Scott and Janis Willis.

For an overview check out the Wiki page at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coingate 

From Wiki: 

"The Thomas Noe investment scandal in Ohio was revealed in early 2005 in part by Toledo, Ohio 
newspaper The Blade. The Ohio government's Bureau of Workers' Compensation fund (BWC) 
invested hundreds of millions of dollars in high risk or unconventional investment vehicles run by 
people closely connected to the Ohio Republican Party who had made large campaign 
contributions to many senior Republican party officials." 

"A rare coin investment fund attracted particular scrutiny after it was reported that two coins 
worth more than $300,000 had been lost. Further investigation then revealed that coins worth 
$10-$12 million were missing and that only $13 million of the original $50 million invested could 
be accounted for. Tom Noe was charged with running a criminal enterprise, the theft of $13 
million from the fund, and of keeping a second set of books to cover for it." 

November 20, 2006 

"S" Republican Thomas Noe, Bush-Cheney 04 campaign chair was found guilty of 29 of 40

management of Ohio's $50 million rare-coin fund investment with the bureau. Police estimate he 
stole over $2 million. He was sentenced to 18 years in prison.

From Wiki: 

"In August, the RNC finally confirmed that it had spent more than $722,000 for Tobin's defense 
by the Washington firm of Williams & Connolly. " This support is based on his assurance and our 
belief that Jim has not engaged in any wrongdoing," a spokesperson told the Associated Press. 
The Union Leader reported in February 2006 that the RNC had paid $1.7 million to Williams on 
the day Tobin was sentenced, for a total of $2.5 million, and would neither confirm nor deny that 
it was still paying his legal expenses. The RNC's first financial report of 2006 indicated that it by 
then spent another $330,000. Later that year, Tobin's wife was hired by the NRSC as a 
consultant on the unsuccessful re-election campaign of Rhode Island senator Lincoln Chafee, as 
Northeast Strategies, a company that listed the Tobins' home as its main address. Despite her lack 
of any previous experience, she was paid at $300,000.

From Wikipedia: 

Republican Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty on January 3, 2006, to three criminal felony counts in 
a Washington, D.C., federal court related to the defrauding of American Indian tribes and 
corruption of public officials. The following day he pleaded guilty to two criminal felony counts in 
a separate federal court, in Miami, related to his fraudulent dealings with SunCruz Casinos. 

On March 29, 2006, he was sentenced to five years and ten months in prison and ordered to pay 
restitution of more than $21 million. His prison sentence was the minimum permitted under a plea 
bargain with federal prosecutors, in part because of his purported cooperation in the federal 
investigation. In October 2006, more than six months after his sentencing, he was ordered by a 
federal judge to report to federal prison by November 15, 2006.

MERIT SYSTEM SCANDAL - KENTUCKY 

August 24, 2006 

Kentucky's Republican Gov. Ernie Fletcher confessed to using his executive power to fire any 
state employee that wasn't a Republican. His nine co-conspirators were all indicted but pardoned 
by Fletcher. 
Click here for the indictment. http://www.courier-journal.com/assets/B2277965 1 1 .PDF 

From Wiki: 

"On May 11, 2006, Fletcher was indicted by a grand jury for three misdemeanors; conspiracy, 
official misconduct and political discrimination. All were related to the merit system investigation. 
The grand jury has returned a total of 29 indictments in the case — 14 of which remain sealed by 
the court." 

Indictments handed down on June 14, 2005. 

Wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.Org/wiki/Ernie_Fletcher#Merit_system_investigation 

Talking Points Memo has also done a good job of revealing the criminals. 
http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/kentuckydocket.php 

On August 24, 2006, Fletcher reached a deal with the Attorney General's office that led to the 
dismissal of the charges in exchange for Fletcher's acknowledgment that "the evidence strongly 
indicates wrongdoing by his administration with regard to personnel actions within the merit 
system. Further, the governor hereby states that these actions were inappropriate and that he 
regrets their occurrence and accepts responsibility for them as head of the executive branch of 
state government." 

List of Republicans also indicted, but pardoned by the Governor.
