The O.G. Uncle Tom, Claude Allen, a black man who made a name for himself as Jesse Helms's spokesman, has come a long way since his days bashing queers in South Carolina. He's risen all the way to being George Bush's chief Domestic Policy Advisor. Bush even nominated him for the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, although the Democrats killed the nomination because he had almost no legal experience.
Well, it seems that Claude Allen had a "domestic" policy of his own. He decided to furnish his domicile in goods from his local Target without paying for them (Target? How fabulously gay. Wasn't there a local Wal-Mart for him to hit instead?). Apparently he ran this scam to the tune of 5 large. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what they call in politics a "felony".
Republicans. They're not just looting the Treasury any more.
