Capt. Renault Rolls Over In His Grave

I'm shocked! Shocked that there EU slush funds!

THE European Commission has been accused of being asleep at the wheel as top executives diverted millions of euros into secret bank accounts, according to official findings that prompted angry calls for heads to roll in the EU executive.

Three reports presented damning evidence of fictitious contracts and missing money at Eurostat, a Luxembourg-based agency of the European Union in charge of compiling highly sensitive financial data.

This was all cleaned up years ago!

Commission president Romano Prodi faces a grilling from leaders of the European Parliament's political groups in Strasbourg tomorrow, having come to office in 1999 promising "zero tolerance" of corruption after the spectacular implosion of the previous Commission.

I blame President's Bush's unilateralism.
