Possibly my favorite Iraq war corruption story yet
Uber dirt bag, Robert J. Stein Jr., served as comptroller for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq in 2003 and 2004. During his tenure he used his position and tax payer money intended for Iraqi reconstruction to acquire first class plane tickets, cigars, alcohol, watches, jewelry, and 2 million dollars in cash including 1 million in outright bribes. He also kept women in his villa who dispensed sexual favors to spice up the already delightful deal. Mr. Stein had been convicted of felony fraud before taking the job in Iraqi, although this charge was somehow overlooked by the administration that hired him. Check out the story for yourself.
