    They got the money from the $9,000,000,000 that went missing in Iraq. That money now forms the core of the repig campaign/dirty tricks slush fund.

      have you seen this?

      (SAN ANTONIO) — An Army major has been arrested on charges that he took $9.6 million in kickbacks and anticipated receiving $5.4 million more for rigging military supply contracts.

      Federal authorities arrested Maj. John Cockerham, a contracting and procurement officer, and his wife, Melissa, on Monday as they returned from Louisiana to Fort Sam Houston.

      The two are charged with accepting bribes, defrauding the United States, money laundering and conspiracy.

      i'm not saying this is how this particular $15 million was raised... but as a 'how-to' model... it's food for thought.

      from memory of what i read earlier today... the investigating authorities have only found about 10% of the total monies stolen.
