DNC: Bush Pioneer Indicted in the Latest Addition to the Republican's Culture of Corruption Files

WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Scandal-plagued Republican campaign contributor and Bush Pioneer Tom Noe was indicted today on three counts of laundering money to President Bush's reelection campaign. Noe contributed more than $105,000 to Republicans, including President Bush and Ohio's Republican Governor Bob Taft.

Democratic National Committee Communications Director Karen Finney issued the following statement:

"Tom Noe is a prime example of the culture of corruption that President Bush and his special interest cronies have fostered in Washington and state capitals across the country. Having apparently mismanaged $13 million from Ohio's state pension fund, Noe funneled at least $50,000 in taxpayer money to President Bush's re-election campaign to buy access to White House strategy sessions.

"America deserves better. Democrats are committed to fighting for real ethics reforms that provide the American people the honest and ethical government they deserve. Maybe now that Noe has been indicted, President Bush will join us in that effort by finally giving back all of the tainted money that Noe raised for his campaign."
