In the spotlight: Ed Buckham

Well, well, well. It's finally Ed's time to have some sunlight exposing his crimes. Ed has been a busy man and closely connected with some of our favorite corruption criminals. After all, he once worked for Jack Abramoff and was the fellow who organized that really snazzy golf trip to Scotland that was so good at letting Abramoff show what a great life the Politicians could live if they just give sugar-daddy Abramoff what he needs.

His own company, Alexander Strategy was a hot lobbying company involved in many big deals.

Ed also connects in the crimes of Brent Wilkes and good ole Foggo as they corrupted Duke Cunningham and ripped millions (or would that be billions?) off Americans under the guise of the black market slush fund.

And who could forget that Ed was Tom DeLay's spiritual advisor based on his own deep religious convictions. Except, the man who was Ed's spiritual advisor and friend, Chris Geeslin, feels like Ed was using him in his nefarious dealings. Here's the NPR piece where Chris talks about how betrayed he felt by his old friend Ed. One wonders whether Buckham wears his religion on his sleeve like his old boss DeLay or whether he's ever asked forgiveness from those he's wronged. Nevertheless, it will take decades for him to atone for his sins.

If Ed does ask forgiveness, I'm still waiting for my call. I'm not, however, holding my breath. He's a slimebag and always has been, since he was a measily intern in Grassley's office. Does Ed think he did anything wrong? No. Remember what he said in Post? He's "forgiven" all the people who spoke against him -- referring that time, I think, to the media. So why should he apologize if he's done nothing wrong? He's God's chosen one. He was brought down by Satan, not by his own greed for money and lust for power. That's his story and he's sticking to it.
