Bush Pardons Real-Estate Criminal Whose Dad Donated $28,500 To Republican Party

News

Nothing says "Christmas" like pardoning a bunch of terrible criminals -- it's like the original, fun, pre-Jesus Christmas, which the Romans calledSaturnalia, in honor of beleaguered General Motors' "different kind of car company," Saturn. Back then, the Midwinter Holiday included such goofs as "letting slaves get it on with your wives" and "fucking said slaves in their butts, before beheading them," and also, "emperors giving presents (severed heads) to other slaves." It was likely very awesome. Anyway, let's meet George W. Bush Junior's latest bunch of dope fiends made free by Imperial Decree.


In his last round, Bush pardoned some hillbilly who poisoned a bunch of Bald Eagles, because why not? It's just the symbol of America, after all!

This time, Bush has pardoned 20 hardened criminals, including another wonderfully symbolic shout-out to American graft & corruption: Bush pardoned a real-estate criminal!

Isaac Robert Toussie pleaded guilty to charges in two separate cases. In one, he admitted in 2001 that he had made false statements to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, pleading guilty to a count of falsifying loan documents that illegally qualified about 100 home buyers for the HUD-backed mortgages.

He and his father, Robert Toussie, were also at the center of an investigation into whether Suffolk County drastically overpaid for a land purchase, sparking lawsuits and an overhaul of the county's land acquisition program.

Ha, fuck you, America!

Robert Toussie donated $28,500 to the Republican National Committee this year, according to Federal Election Commission filings. The pardon shocked and outraged lawmakers and homeowners, some of whom who say they were victims of the Toussies.

The other pardons went to the usual bunch of dope gangsters.

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
