A Voice in the Wilderness

As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. -- William O. Douglas

Birds of a Feather Heather Wilson Wilson Hand-Washing/Divestment Fund

Welcome to the Birds-of-a-Feather Heather Wilson Hand-Washing Divestment Fund

Here's how it works:
1] Congresswoman Heather Wilson initially accepts campaign funding from
from crooks, liars and sexual predators.
2] They get exposed
3] Heather calls a press conference to divest herself of her connection to the bad guys - bemoans these unethical donors' betrayals of the public trust.
4] After condemming their criminal behaviors as despicable she supports having the full weight of the law to rain down on those same friends and associates from whom she gladly accepted campaign money.
4] She declares that she will be donating the proceeds of her ill-gotten gains to the Sunlight Foundation.
5] Finally, she and lies in wait for yet another of her self-righteous neocon buddies to be exposed and the process starts all over again.
6] Meanwhile, Birds-of-a-feather Heather waits for more money from her self-serving cronies to drop into her lap.
7] Nothing changes.

One thing is for certain, Heather Wilson sure donates a boat load of dirty money - once she has been exposed and she sure gets morality when the cameras start rolling. While she washes hands more than Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth, she ain't losing any sleep over it.

Birds-of-a-Feather Heather's scumbag associates;

Ohio Republican Congressman Bob Ney is pleading guilty today for his role in the Jack Abramoff scandal. It seems Ney's congressional influence was for sale to the highest bidder; he was busted for selling it to the lobbyist Jack Abramoff. You can read about the crooked Congressman it by clicking here.

Sentencing guidelines call for up to ten years in the pokey for this fine, upstanding ex-congressman. Happy Friday the thirteenth Mr. Ney. The prosecution wants 27 months.

How does this tie in to NM Congresswoman Heather, the shape-shifter Wilson? Well she took money from Rep. Ney. Of course, when his crooked ways came to light, Birds of a feather Heather announced she was donating the $6,000.00 she received - from the unethical congressman - to the Sunlight Foundation.

What an honorable thing to do - gladly accept funds from someone who dirty, take their money, use it and then donate those funds once their donor's improprieties have been revealed.

To be certain, other public officials from both parties have been in similar situations. Moreover, divesting themselves monetarily and symbolically by donating such proceeds to the Sunlight Foundation seems like the right thing to do.

However, Heather Wilson has developed a disturbing pattern whereby she doesn't seem to either care where her money comes from or she has really poor judgement when it comes to accepting money and support from crooks and liars.

Considering Heather's 'emotional moment' up on the Hill when her voice cracked as she lamented Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's SuperBowl nipple slip fiasco, it would seem as though someone who weeps for the cameras over what she called a 'travesty' might keep herself abreast (pun intended) of the boobs from whom she is soliciting re-election campaign contributions.

It seems like Birds of a Feather Heather's Campaign funds go whatever way the political winds blow.

It doesn't say much for Heather Wilson - especially when she has had to do this on several occaisons.

Enter bon vivant Randy "Duke Cunningham" - a high roller whose excesses landed him in jail...

Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, the congressman from California's 50th Congressional district - who enjoyed getting into comfy pajamas and a turtle neck while entertaining women under lava lamp-light in a yacht provided to him by a Defense contractor - was forced to step down from his office after he was busted for a whole litany of illegal activities. Duke also donated money to Heather Wilson's re-election coffers. Of course, after his questional moral character flaws were revealed, Heather donated the $5,000.00 - which he had funneled in her direction - to the Sunlight Foundation.

Fellow House Page Committee member Mark, 'do I make you horny?' Foley - whose only problem is his desire to have sexual relations with boys...

Mark Foley, the Florida Congressman whose shameful efforts to seduce under-age boys to drop their underpants for a little rear-end romance also donated funds to the re-elect Heather effort and, true to form,
Heather donated the $8,000.00 she received from Foley to yet another charity. By the way, Heather who also sat on the House Page oversight Committee - the same Pages whom Foley was sending his sexually provoctive emails to. Wilson was also the largest recipient of funds from Foley.

'Kickback' Tom Delay and 'Jack the rip-off' Abramoff...

Tom Delay, the bug-eyed Texas exterminator turned Congressman also donated funding to Birds of a Feather Heather - to the tune of $50,000.00. He is no longer a Congressman owing to his corruption indictment in that great state. Heather Wilson again donated the proceeds from Delay to - you guessed it - to the Sunlight Foundation.

Abramoff whose exploits include ripping off Native American tribes from who he solicited business. Disparaging them in writing as 'ignorant savages,' as justification for bilking them of their money was a real jewel of a guy. For his efforts,
Abramoff - pled guilty in July '06 to Fraud, Tax evasion and Bribery of a public official.

Birds-of-a-feather Heather also donated the money she received from Abramoff - to charity.

Well, I suppose we do need Buzzards, bottom feeders and scum in the food chain.

Thank you Heather - the cameras ought to be rolling pretty soon - and you'll be singing about the Sunlight - again.
