Is Rev. Moon Greasing The Wheel For A Pardon?


Why did Washington Times Foundation give $1M to Houston

"One Rev. Sun Myung Moon-watcher's theory: The donation was made to the Greater Houston Community Foundation to help persuade President Bush to grant Moon a pardon for a 1982 felony tax evasion conviction that had put him in prison for 13 months."

Fish Bowl DC:

"That's one theory thrown out there by the Houston Chroni(what?)cle's Rick Casey and it's worth a read to see Casey's construction of a potential back channel donation of nearly a million dollars from The Washington Times Foundation to the George Bush Presidential Library. Was it an attempt to persuade Bush 43 to grant Moon a pardon for his 1982 felony tax conviction (that one that had him behind bars for 13 months)?
