Today is the birthday of Vin Diesel, star of the movie franchise "The Fast and the Furious," so the timing could not be better for this move by the Conservative Caucus.
The Washington Times published the following ad by TCC today, which offers a $100,000 reward for any information the public might have about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' ill-fated "Operation Fast and Furious" gun-running investigation.
"Don't go to jail!" the ad pleads. "Turn states evidence now just like John Dean did. The truth will come out. Will you be caught in the web of Operation Fast & Furious, or will you avoid jail time? Make the right choice now."
And don't you worry about a thing, potential whistle-blower! The advertisement promises that not only will you be $100K richer, "[y]our information will be treated in total confidence."
Call 1-888-692-7374 now, won't you? And "report the facts."
"We felt forced to run this advertisement and offer the $100,000 reward because justice was not being served," TCC Chairman Peter J. Thomas said in a statement. "And we wanted to offer an opportunity to anyone who knows the truth to save yourself before Operation Fast & Furious comes crashing down like Watergate; to make the right choice now."
