4 Degrees of Separation: Pelosi-Pork-Andre Agassi-Hookers-Bill Clinton

Repeat after me…

“Most ethical Congress ever…
Most ethical Congress ever…
Most ethical Congress ever…”

Now… The most ethical Congress ever is rewarding a school embroiled in a prostitution case in Las Vegas with a $175,000 earmark!

According to latest counts… There appears to be roughly 1338 earmarks included in the Labor-HHS appropriations bill.


Speaker Pelosi House is still at it…
One of these earmarks, requested by Rep. Berkely, would provide $200,000 to the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, (whose website is inactive), located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Agassi established the tuition-free charter school for local “at-risk” kids in 2001, and last year the House approved a $175,000 earmark for the institution–although it did not become law because Congress did not complete the appropriation’s process. In 2004, Forbes Magazine ranked Agassi 27th (right after Will Smith and Julia Roberts) on it list of richest individuals under age 40–at the time, the tennis star was 34 years old and worth $162 million.

Although Agassi was known during his playing days for his soft touch and accuracy, this action seems to be a fault – especially for the far less wealthy taxpayers who are being asked to fund it.

But, that is not all…
This same school, Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, is embroiled in a messy Las Vegas prostitution case:

Police said Friday, June 8, 2007, that Esperanza Brooks, 36, a cheerleading coach at the prep school founded by tennis star Andre Agassi, and Kemp, 30, believed to be her business partner, were arrested Wednesday night in a Las Vegas restaurant after Brooks agreed to deliver three prostitutes and drugs to undercover detectives at a hotel-casino. Brooks, a woman believed to be her business partner, Rashena Rashel Kemp, and Alexander, Tiffany Alvord and Rachel Wall, each believed to be prostitutes working for Brooks, were arrested in the sting, police said.

And, there’s more…
The madam of the prostitution ring says that Bill Clinton was a former client:

When an undercover detective called Brooks, she said her girls were clean and only serviced upscale clients, a police report said. She later boasted that she had more than 40 women working for her and that her clients ranged from basketball star Shaquille O’Neal to a former president, according to the report.

“These are not your average girls. Some of them have worked with Bill Clinton,” Brooks told an undercover officer, according to the report.

How about that? …From Pelosi to Bill Clinton. It’s a democratic circle of life!
Nice work, Nancy!
