I took this straight from Wikipedia. Anyone who doubts the integrity or character of Republican Congressman from San Diego (Darrell Issa), currently the Head of the House Oversight Committee in charge of investigating the so-called (trumped-up) IRS scandal, should read the following 3 paragraphs taken word-for-word from Wikipedia.
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, chances are …. it’s a fucking duck.
Or where there’s smoke, there’s fire, literally. The very building he invested his and his wife’s and his family’s money in (Quantum Enterprises in Maple Heights, a Cleveland suburb) mysteriously burned to the ground destroying nearly all of the inventory.
He even had the balls to cause this to happen on my birthday (September 7th – 1982) – Good God! (Sorry, but clear-cut circumstantial evidence strongly backs up this blog writer’s assertion – see down below).
Enjoy, Bon Appetit. Read the following from Wikipedia:
After leaving the military, Issa and his second wife, Kathy Stanton, moved back to the Cleveland area. They pooled their savings, sold their cars, and borrowed $50,000 from his family to invest in Quantum Enterprises, an electronics manufacturer run by a friend from Cleveland Heights that assembled bug zappers, CB radio parts and other consumer products for other companies. One of those clients, car alarm manufacturer Steal Stopper, would become the path to Issa’s fortune. It was struggling badly, and he took control of it by foreclosing a $60,000 loan he had made to it when its founder, Joey Adkins, missed a payment. Adkins remained as an employee.
Issa soon turned Steal Stopper around, to the point that it was supplying Ford with thousands of car alarms and negotiating a similar deal with Toyota. But early in the morning of September 7, 1982, the offices and factory of Quantum and Steal Stopper in the Cleveland suburb of Maple Heights caught fire. The fire took three hours to put out. The buildings and almost all inventory within were destroyed. An investigation of the cause of the fire noted “suspicious burn patterns” with fires starting in two places aided by an accelerant such as gasoline. Adkins said that Issa appeared to prepare for a fire by increasing the fire insurance policy 462% three weeks previously, and by removing computer equipment holding accounting and customer information. Adkins said that he thinks Issa set the fire on purpose. The insurance company was suspicious of arson and paid only about one-tenth the insured amount.
