The DNC has a Mob connection ? Go figure!

"As Sens. John Kerry and John Edwards arrived in Boston today for the Democratic National Convention, so did the California man who is their single biggest contributor."

"He is Stephen Bing, a wealthy film producer who, with little fanfare, has managed to steer a total of more than $16 million of his money to Democratic candidates and the supposedly independent groups that support them...."

"Democratic Party officials said they knew nothing about the man who law enforcement officials tell ABC News is Bing's friend and business partner — Dominic Montemarano, a New York Mafia figure currently in federal prison on racketeering charges...."

"After a recent private lunch with Democratic vice-presidential candidate Edwards, Bing also declined to answer questions about his relationship with Montemarano."

There are those who scream foul when a former CEO of Haliburton becomes Vice president. I guess for Democrats, its better to be a criminal than a CEO! But then again, the Democrats have never really had a problem with taking money from shady characters before.
