YARS: Yet Another Republican Scandal

TalkingPointsMemo: GOP Rep Admits Ties To Iffy Foundation And Posh Golf Junkets.

Short version: Bucks not f*cks this time, so looking good.

"Rep. Steve Buyer (R-IN) and his piggybank non-profit, the Frontier Foundation....raised over $800,000 for scholarships for deserving youth and managed not to award a single scholarship in its six years of existence. Last week Buyer's spokesperson claimed, despite abundant evidence to the contrary, that Frontier wasn't connected to him. But now he's admitting that for all intents and purposes he controls it. And a lot of the quarter million the outfit has spent so far seems to have gone to golf junkets with political contributors."

Family values, f*ck yeah! USA! USA! USA!
