Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) is demanding a federal probe of Blackwater on alleged tax evasion charges - but he interceded for a real tax cheat who was convicted in court and served prison time.
The convict, liberal political activist Robert Creamer, is the husband of Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), considered one of the most shrill anti-Blackwater critics on Capitol Hill.
Schakowsky reportedly signed the fraudulent tax returns that her husband illegally filed.
Bloggers comment on Schakowsky tax fraud issue:
"Schakowsky ire phony as kited checks"
"More Dem corruption"
"A hero of the common man"
"Checks and balances for Seals"
