How low can you go............Kofi Annan's (heretofore referred to as Coffee Enema) depravity has no limit. According to today's New York Sun, New York's Next Great Newspaper, Annan's friend made big money helping a dictator..........ugh.
The firm, Ruder Finn, registered as a lobbyist for Nigeria in March 1998, three months before Abacha died. An executive of the firm, Emmanuel Tchvidjian, told The New York Sun, however, that after conducting a survey for the Nigerian regime, it dropped the account.
"We don't do business with dictators," Mr. Tchvidjian, a senior vice president of Ruder Finn, said.
Ruder Finn, which was founded by Annan associate David Finn, was approached to improve the Abacha government's image by Ibrahim Gambari, who served at the time as Nigeria's U.N. ambassador. Mr. Gambari is now a U.N. undersecretary-general, reporting directly to Mr. Annan as his top adviser on African issues.
Mr. Gambari did not return repeated phone calls by the Sun to his office last week.
