Rethug Values, cont'd.

The former treasurer for the National Republican Congressional Committee embezzled $500,000 from the committee, according to court papers reported in this morning's WaPo (no link). Christopher "Sticky Fingers" Ward authorized numerous diversions of committee funds to pay mortgage costs and a six-figure remodeling of his suburban D.C. home.

Actually, we have some sympathy for Sticky Fingers. We feel that the money was better spent on his home than on Rethuglican campaign activities.
