PiS'ed Off at Kwasniewski

Now Poland's ruling Law and Order Party (PiS) is going after former president Aleksander Kwasniewski, promising to look into alleged financial irregularities while he was the Minister of Youth more two decades ago under the communist regime. I'm no fan of Kwasniewski, but this is bordering on the absurd. Come on boys and girls, how about doing some governing instead of looking for people to go after. One of my fav Polish bloggers, beatroot, has a nice list of PiS's enemies.

Let's be frank here. Pretty much everybody associated with the old regime in Poland was dirty, opportunistic, or, even more likely, both. Despite this, Poles have voted for Kwasniewski twice in the last 10 years. Let it go, PiS, and investigate more recent corruption. There's plenty of it out there.

So, will Kwasniewski make U.S. his home now, with a base in DC? Whatever happened to his aspirations to become the next head of the U.N. Despite the frivolous nature of these charges, I'm sure they won't help Kwas at the U.N.
