Bushie Takes the 5th

When I last wrote about PBGC head Charles Millard, who a large portion of the agency’s trust fund, and put it in the stock market just before the crash, I thought that it was just another case of another incompetent ideologue.

I was wrong. It’s Bush and His Evil Minions style corruption, baby!

The House Education and Labor Committee is now investigating his contacts with the investment banks that actually bought the stock, and generated over $100 million in fees.

So, they called Millard to testify, and he repeatedly invoked the 5th.

Sounds to me like he was throwing business their way in exchange for the possibility of a lucrative job offer.
