Pretty good summary of what is known - how much more is hidden?

$34,000:

The amount of federal taxes that Secretary of the Treasury
Timothy Geithner (D) failed to pay during his employment at
The International Monetary Fund despite receiving extra
Compensation and explanatory brochures that described his
Tax liabilities.

True: http://www.Cleveland.com/nation/ind...mas_nomine.HTML

$75,000:

The amount of money that the head of the powerful
Tax-writing committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), was
Forced to report on his taxes after the discovery that he
Had not reported income from a Dominican Republic rental
Property. His excuses for the failure started with blaming
His wife, then his accountant and finally the fact that he
Didn't speak Spanish.

True http://www.nypost.com/seven/0910200...cuse_128444.htm

$93,000:

The INCREASE in the amount of petty cash each of our
Congressional representatives voted to give themselves in
January 2009 during the height of an economic meltdown.
That's a $40,000,000 + million INCREASE!

http://gatewaypundit.blogspot....co...-lawmakers.html See video here from Fox

$133,900:

The amount Fannie Mae "invested" in Chris Dodd (D-CT), head
Of the powerful Senate Banking Committee, presumably to
Repel oversight of the GSE prior to its meltdown. Said
Meltdown helped touch off the current economic crisis. In
Only a few years time, Fannie also "invested" over $105,000
In then-Senator Barack Obama.

$140,000:

The amount of back taxes and interest that Cabinet nominee
Tom Daschle (D) was forced to cough up after the vetting

True: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123...=googlenews_wsj Wall Street Journal

$356,000:

$800,000:

The amount of "sweetheart" mortgages Senate Banking
Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) received from Countrywide
Financial, the details for which he has refused to release
Details despite months of promises to do so.. Countrywide
Was once the nation's largest mortgage lender and linked
To Government-Sponsored Entities like Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac. Their meltdown precipitated the current
Financial crisis. Just days ago in Pennsylvania , Countrywide was forced to pay $150,000,000 in mortgage
Assistance following "a state investigation that concluded
That Countrywide relaxed its underwriting standards to
Sell risky loans to consumers who did not understand them
And could not afford them."

True: http://rightvoices.com/2008/08/21/m...-urban-affairs/

$1,000,000:

Fugitive Marc Rich, to Democrat interests and the William

Resulted in a pardon for Mr. Rich. The pardon was reviewed
And blessed by Obama Attorney General and then Deputy AG

Officials to turn it down.

True: http://articles.latimes.com/2008/No...ion/na-holder20

$12,000,000:

The amount of TARP money provided to community bank
OneUnited despite the fact that it did not qualify for
funds, and was "under attack from its regulators for
allegations of poor lending practices and executive-pay
abuses." It turns out that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a key
contributor to the Fannie Mae meltdown, just happens to be
married to one of the bank's former directors.

True: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123258284337504295.html Wall Street Journal

$23,500,000:

The upper range of net worth Rep. Allan Mollohan (D-WV)

Post through earmarks of "tens of millions of dollars to
groups associated with his own business partners."

$2,000,000,000:

($2 billion) the approximate amount of money that House
Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking
related to his son's lobbying efforts. The son, Craig Obey,

is "a top lobbyist for the nonprofit group" that would
receive a roughly $2 billion component of the "Stimulus"
package.

True: http://www.newwest.net/topic/articl...parks/C530/L37/

and this as a list of these related stories: http://search.yahoo.com/404handler?...ational_parks_2

$3,700,000,000:

($3.7 billion) not to be outdone, this is the estimated
value of various defense contracts awarded to a company

Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions to her
husband's firms."

of a RICO suit in Ohio .

True: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/...331-bill-pelosi

$1,646,000,000,000 ($1.646 trillion):

The approximate amount of annual United States exports
endangered by the "Stimulus" package, which provides a "Buy
American" stricture. According to international trade
experts, a "US-EU trade war looms" which could result in
a worldwide economic depression reminiscent of that touched
off by the protectionist Smoot-Hawley Act.

True: http://www.asiaing.com/2008-nationa...ain-street.html

and http://www.powerlineblog.com/archiv...9/01/022685.php

Background: Smoot-Hawley Act: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoot-Hawley_Tariff_Act

It's becoming a culture of corruption and stupidity. In addition, these folks appear to be above the law.

All of the aforementioned are still in office, living like the royalty they think they are.

Remember: This all happened in just the FIRST QUARTER of 2009, folks!

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.
