		       Is the IRS Dealing Crack?

			  by J. Orlin Grabbe

	There is nothing more American (for the government, anyway) than
collecting taxes and selling drugs.

	But the innovative IRS regional office in Covington, Kentucky, has
managed to combine the two operations.  Yesterday (Thursday, Sept. 19) five
IRS employees were indicted for selling crack cocaine.

	Listed in the indictment are Larry Cummings, Gina Wells, Gregory
Thornton, Holly Armstrong, and Corey Thomas, according to the office of
public affairs (606-292-5652).  All have been placed on administrative
leave.  They will be arraigned in federal court in Kentucky on November 4,
or thereabouts.

	I've been to the Covington IRS office.  They have a big fence and
guards who want to know the nature of your business if you don't have
an employee I.D.  I went there to help the Angel of Death (AOD) pick up
a T.V. set. He explained the purpose of the fence:  "That's all intended
to keep the other crack dealers away."

	Can I get my tax refund in a baggie?

	If IRS employees were selling crack cocaine, what else were they
selling?  What would an IRS employee have to sell, anyway?  Hmmm.

	"How secure is your computer system?" I asked the office of public

	The answer I got was, in essence: "Very secure.  These were just
clerks that were indicted. Anyway, there is an audit trail. Any unauthorized
access to taxpayer files would be picked up immediately."

	Where have I heard that before?

	The IRS employee indictments are connected to a series of
"Hackers Versus Politicians, Part II," money-on-the-side investigations
taking place throughout Kentucky.

	Two members of the National Guard--a General and a Lieutenant
Colonel--have been indicted for selling promotions.  Their actions were,
of course, partly inspired by patriotism:  they were raising money for the
gubernatorial campaign of Brereton C. Jones, Kentucky's governor just prior
to the current governor, Paul Patton.

	I hear an indictment is currently being prepared for Mr. Jones.
Bye-bye, Jones. Your horses will miss you.

	And where are these Kentucky investigations leading?  Straight to
the mansion of Governor Paul Patton, I am told.  Mr. Patton, a friend of
Bill Clinton (FOB), was scheduled for a thirty-minute speech at the recent
Democrat National Convention.  It was cut to three minutes.  Was Bill afraid
he might have, say, another Dick Morris on his hands?  Well, okay, Bill
didn't know about Dick Morris at the time.

	I am told by investigators that from Kentucky the path leads onward
to Montana, where a virtual alphabet soup of indictments are being drawn up:
not only for the drug-dealing FBI agents that I mentioned in previous posts,
but also IRS and DEA employees. Not to mention the Montana governor, Marc

	The best is yet to come, in this fine narco-republic of ours.

		General Convicted for Political Fund-Raising

			  by J. Orlin Grabbe

	A Kentucky "Hackers vs. Politicians, Part II" investigation has
resulted in one of the few indictments and convictions of a General in U.S.

	The Fifth Column, which developed much of the information in
connection with on-going BOPTROT investigations, are now tightening
their noose around the neck of the current governor, Paul Patton.  (Can
you see him squirming?)

	General Robert L. DeZarn, commander of the Kentucky National
Guard from 1991 to 1995, was convicted by a jury in U.S. Circuit Court of
lying to Army investigators about his political fund-raising activities.

	DeZarn had retired after 29 years of military service in 1987,
but was named adjutant general by Kentucky Governor Brereton Jones in
1991.  DeZarn, for his part, raised funds for Jones' 1991 gubernatorial

	The former Kentucky adjutant general, Gen. Billy Wellman, became
a executive officer for Jones while Jones was lieutenant governor, then
became Jones' state police commissioner and justice secretary.  At a 1990
party at Wellman's house attended by DeZarn, Guard officers were strong-
armed to contribute to Jones' campaign.

	The military fund-raisers reportedly demanded $500 from each officer
as the price of staying in the officer game, while much higher contributions
were required for important promotions.

	Another ex-Guard officer, Lt. Col. Clifford Childers, turned state's
evidence after pleading to "a misdemeanor charge of promising another
officer a promotion in return for a $500 contribution to Jones' campaign"
(*Lexington Herald-Leader*, September 28, 1996).

	The newspaper also notes:  "Federal prosecutors have said Jones
is not a target of the investigation."

	Little do they know.
