dehli conspirators deploy luxury cars to topple dikshit is reporting a plot to topple Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit, financed by "millionaire contractor" Ashok Malhotra. Malhotra, who runs a canteen in the Delhi Assembly, stands accused of bribing Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) to oust Dikshit. The Central Bureau of Investigation raided Malhotra's house last week and discovered a fleet of 52 luxury cars with VIP number plates, 15 of which were allegedly slated for MLAs opposing Dikshit. According MLA Brahm Pal, ‘gifting’ luxury cars for political favors from MLAs is no biggie. “Everyone knows about these kind of things. Luxury cars are offered to MLAs, ministers to gain support in order to evict a politician from his post."

    Remember Randy 'Duke' Cunningham? A luxury car was the least of the bribes he was convicted of taking...Cheney is right up there, too...think Haliburton and no bid Iraq contracts (there are more contractors in Iraq than there are soldiers).
