Bush's spiritual adviser indicted

Sometimes it's easy to forget how corrupt the George W. Bush regime was, but we had to suffer through 8 years of his incompetent dictatorship.

Kirbyjon Caldwell is a Houston megachurch pastor and spiritual adviser to Bush. Now Caldwell - along with Gregory Alan Smith, a Louisiana financial planner - has been indicted on 13 federal counts of conspiracy, wire fraud, and money laundering. The pair is accused of selling millions of dollars in worthless Chinese bonds to 29 vulnerable investors, many of them elderly.

The bonds were issued by the old Republic of China before the Communist Party's 1949 takeover and aren't recognized by the current Chinese government.

Caldwell is widely blamed for helping to create Bush's Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives - which was of highly questionable constitutionality.
