Iraq Reconstruction Funding Helping GOP Campaigns

Via Josh Marshall comes something I have long suspected:

The American company appointed to advise the US government on the economic reconstruction of Iraq has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars into Republican Party coffers and has admitted that its own finances are in chaos because of accounting errors and bad management.

Money is fungible. A White House channels taxpayer dollars in no bid contracts to a company who in turn channels campaign contributions back to its party for campaigns. If you read the details, you might react that the amount of funds involved here are not that large. But how many other ways has this White House used taxpayer monies to reward its base in an exchange for campaign contributions? A cynic might say this is politics as usual, but isn’t it unusual that this White House started an expensive war that made us less safe in order to facilitate this corruption?
