Who is Sam Fox? Well, according to WhiteHouseForSale.org, Sam Fox is a Bush Ranger, responsible for millions of dollars of donations to both the Bush/Cheney campaigns and the Republican Party. He's also a charter member of the Libby Defense Fund. In other words, this guy is neck deep in the Bush/Cheney circles.
But Bob Geiger points out that some of Fox's support really can only be categorized as unsavory:
(W)hat's especially interesting is that if you really look under the hood of where this guy's political heart is at, you find that in late 2004 he gave $50,000 to no less solid citizens than the Swift Boat Liars who made it their mission to discredit a highly-decorated Vietnam Veteran in John Kerry.
Now if that won't buy you an ambassador's post from George W. Bush, nothing will.
