Updating the Scandal Scorecard update

It's a never ending task with Bushco at the helm. This isn't exactly a new issue, but a new investigation earns it a place on the list.

Via the DCCC blog, The Stakeholder:

"NEW YORK, March 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Newsweek has learned that the General Accounting Office, Congress's investigative arm, is opening a probe into the Iraqi National Congress, led by controversial financier Ahmad Chalabi, and its use of U.S. government money received in 2001 and 2002. The issue under scrutiny is not whether Chalabi prodded America into a war on false pretenses; it is whether he used U.S. taxpayer dollars and broke U.S. laws or regulations to do so...

Well, sure. It's obvious that he prodded America into a war on false pretenses (although Buscho didn't need much prodding, and they wouldn't know a false premise from a real one if it slapped them upside the head). But the question of how much he finagled from the treasury while doing it is a very good one.

So, the only question is, does this go in the Executive Branch or the Congressional column? Or is it a two-fer?
