Alaska's Corrupt
Bastards Club

The name "Corrupt Bastards Club" has been widely used to designate Alaska legislators implicated in a massive ongoing federal corruption investigation.

A separate investigation of Alaska's fisheries industry involving Republican Senator Ted Stevens and his son Ben is expected to snag many high-profile fisheries executives and their cronies in Alaska and Seattle.

Congressman Don Young has reported nearly $2 million in legal bills - and he hasn't even been arrested - yet.

Former governor Sarah Palin has had 21 ethics complaints filed against her.


Scorecard

So far the massive FBI-IRS investigation has snagged two Alaskan Republican members of Congress, one of their aides the ex-president of the state Senate , six state legislators, two lobbyists, two VECO executives and their families, the former chief of staff of corrupt ex-governor Frank Murkowski, and a former businessman who paid bribes to a legislator.


If you have any question as to where there FBI investigations are heading, listen to this.
