Once a Crook Always a Crook: Kofi Annan

Kofi Annan, the corruption that keeps giving and giving, or in this case, keeps taking and taking.

As I have pointed out in my previous posts on dear ole Kofi, I showed how the UN has surpassed all other times of its history by way of corruption under Kofi Annan's rule, from the oil for food scandal to the sex scandals that have run rampant and unchecked under his rule.

Now we have an article in the The Sun with another, in a long list, of suspect actions by Kofi.

As Secretary-General Annan prepares to leave his post at the United Nations, a mystery is surfacing surrounding his apartment on Roosevelt Island, subsidized by New York taxpayers, which is still in use by the family of his brother, Kobina Annan.

The apartment was where Mr. Annan and his wife lived before 1997, when he became secretary-general. The Roosevelt Island home is part of an estate of low-rent state-regulated housing. For years, the Annans saved considerable sums by occupying an apartment meant to help financially strapped low- to moderate-income New York families.

The man is a crook and as far as I am concerned, good riddance to bad rubbish.

Don Surber wonders who else at the UN is sponging off the New York taxpayers.

Captain Ed notices Kofi's extreme hypocrisy:

It's a remarkable story of hypocrisy and greed from the man who set himself up over the last week as the global scold for rich nations. Instead of modeling the behavior he demanded of us, he abused the programs we set up to assist the working-class families of New York just so he and his family could maintain a second residence at a discount rate, even while none of them paid no rent for their own primary residences. What a fraud.

At this point I am not even surprised, I am simply glad he will no longer be the secretary general of the UN and hoping we all never have to hear his name again.
