But IS He Gay????

In an unexpected midtrial reversal, Oscar S. Wyatt, Jr., the Texas oilman accused of corrupting the United Nation’s oil-for-food program, pleaded guilty today to paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal kickbacks to Saddam Hussein’s regime in 2001 to gain access to lucrative Iraqi oil contracts.

Mr. Wyatt’s guilty plea came without warning this morning, on the 14th day of his trial in United States District Court in Manhattan, and it arrived before federal prosecutors had even finished presenting their case.

Under an agreement with the government, Mr. Wyatt pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The sentence he receives is likely to be between 18 and 24 months in prison, rather than the potential maximum of 70 years he could have faced if convicted on all five counts of the indictment.

Ok, so the guy corrupted the UN Oil For Weapons Programme....

It's not like he is GAY or anything.

So clearly making a plea agreement is not like he is actually saying he is Gay or anything, it's more like accepting that there are things worse than being Senator Craig and one of those Gay Things.
