This Couldn't Have Started Without Don Young
Don Young helped his now-imprisoned buddy, Jack Abramoff, to enable the Tan crime empire create a slave colony in the Commonwealth of the Mariana Islands. The so-called "guest workers" there, are kept locked up, forced to endure prostitution and subsequent forced abortions, threatened, and once used up, sent back to where they came from - usually flat broke and broken in body and spirit.
Don and Jack set up the sweet deal that allowed the goods made for Tan by these slaves to be marketed at your local clothing store as "Made in the USA."
Like Rep. Bob Schaffer (R- CO), in the video above, our Representative, Don Young, denies ever having dealt with Abramoff. As Kris Pierce and I were able to establish back in September 2006, though, Young is lying, just like Schaffer.
