Tom Daschle–Our Most Corrupt Politician?

Tom Daschle has just bought a $2.25 million home in Washington. He finances his lavish lifestyle by accepting bribes. The bribes are paid to his wife, Linda, who purports to be a “lobbyist.” Mostly she lobbies her husband.
Daschle’s financial arrangements can’t withstand the light of day, so he cannot reveal his tax returns. He has again refused to release his most recent returns. If South Dakota voters had any idea how corrupt Daschle is, or how rich he is getting at the public’s expense, he wouldn’t have a chance in his reelection campaign next year.
