The anti-Cuba right wingers in Miami have been extremely busy in the buying of votes of members of the Democratic Party.
On June 14, 2007, right before anti-Cuba amendments were introduced by vendepatrias Licoln Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who still dream of restoring the favored type of Uncle Sam "democracy" to Cuba (i.e. of the Batista flavor) gave $10,000 to House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC).
He "whipped" his Gang of 66 into dutiful obedience.
Gee, I wonder if he stored the $10,000 in his refrigerator freezer, like William Jefferson of Louisiana?
