Pamela at Atlas Shrugs has details, including the names of those who voted to continue funding an organization that is so corrupt that it’s front line employees, without hesitation, offered advice to help with the sexual exploitation and trafficking of minors, mortgage fraud, money laundering, tax fraud etc. Their ease with and certainty of the steps needed for such illegal actions naturally leads to the question of, how many times have they done something like this before?
