National Republican Congressional Committee Will Blame ONE GUY For Massive "Financial Improprieties"

Do you believe for a single minute that ONE GUY, an accountant who's worked for the NRCC since 1993, was able to bamboozle everyone and turn in falsified financial reports for over a decade?

Me, either.

Top House Republicans were told in recent days that a former employee of their campaign committee may have forged an official audit during the contentious 2006 election cycle and that they should brace for the possibility that an unfolding investigation could uncover financial improprieties stretching back several years, according to GOP sources briefed on the members-only discussions.


As treasurer, (Christopher J.) Ward was in charge of NRCC bookkeeping, tracking tens of millions of dollars in political contributions and expenditures. He has been at the center of NRCC bookkeeping for more than a decade.

And, in true "innocent bystander/neighbor-as-witness fashion, those who know THAT ONE GUY had this to say...

Many lobbyists and former aides who know Ward characterize him as an understated, dependable person. A former NRCC official said he was “a very reliable guy.”

“He was the go-to guy if anybody needed a Republican treasurer” for a campaign committee or a leadership PAC, the former official said.

Heavy sigh.

Aren't you completely reassured that the RNCC has identified the one bad apple?

Aren't you glad this was just AN ISOLATED INCIDENT?

Scapegoat, thy name is THAT ONE GUY.

Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
