Ahhh... ABSCAM... Now That Was A Scandal...

BREAKING NEWS! You remember ABSCAM? A bunch of dirty Congressmen (including John "Never Faithful" Murtha) worked with who they thought were "Arab Sheiks." Guess Murtha's been given hummers under the royal Arab robes for about 26 years. Of course, Murtha was never convicted. Why? He turned tail on his fellow conspirators in order to save his wrinkled old hide. I guess we shouldn't be surprised that he later threw the United States Marine Corp under the bus.

In a newly released video, Murtha can be seen and heard plotting to sell out his district and his country. TRANSCRIPT:
REP. JOHN MURTHA, D-PA.: Now, as I told Howard, I want to deal with you guys a while before I made any transactions at all, period. In other words, I want to say, "Look put some money in these guys." And I, just let me know, so I can say, you know, these guys are going to — they want to do business in our district. Then there's a couple businesses that I'm not personally involved in but would be very helpful for the district, that I could make a big play of, be very helpful to me.

After we've done some business, then I might change my mind. But right now, that's all I'm interested in. Period.
And I'm going to tell you this. If anybody can do it, and I'm not bull (expletive deleted) you fellows, I can get it done my way.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Let me ask you now we're here together, I was under the impression, OK, and I told Howard we were willing to pay. And OK, I went out and got the fifty thousand. From what you're telling me, OK, you're telling me that's not what, you know, that that's not what you...

MURTHA: I'm not interested.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: OK.

MURTHA:
At this point.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: OK.

MURTHA: You know, we do business for a while,
maybe I'll be interested, maybe I won't, you know.
It certainly seems like he was interested; at the very least he wasn't not interested.
