Ashcroft hits the motherload.

From TruthOut we get this, and its a friggin doozy:

When U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie announced a $311 million settlement to end a probe into kickbacks by leading manufacturers of knee and hip replacements, he touted the agreement as a groundbreaking development for consumers and the industry.

The deal also proved to be lucrative for Christie’s old boss.

Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft was one of five private attorneys whom Christie hand-picked to monitor the implant makers. Now Ashcroft’s D.C.-based firm is poised to collect more than $52 million in 18 months, among the biggest payouts reported for a federal monitor.(emphasis mine)

Sweet Jesus in a speedo..thats some job Johnny. Congrats on fucking the American taxpayer out of a whole lotta cash for doing very little.

Tremendous upside to keeping your piehole shut about all the bullshit and bravado that went down whilst you worked for BushCo dude…seriously.
