Attempts by Lugar Supporters to Silence Greg Wright Fails; Are there more skeletons waiting to come out of the Senator's closet?
CFE Greg Wright
Fighter pilots know they're over a target when they start taking flak, and it's much the same way in politics. If the political flak that Greg Wright has encountered recently is any indication, he must be over a mighty big target.
An unknown source, presumably from Senator Richard Lugar's political camp, recently filed an ethics complaint with the ACFE against Wright, claiming he violated policies of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.
"Mr. Wright took it upon himself to conduct an investigation of Richard and Charlene Lugar to determine whether they own the property listed on their Indiana absentee ballots," read a portion of the complaint, which went on to allege that Wright's "investigation of Mr. and Mrs. Lugar's property ownership was wholly motivated by his personal political agenda."
The complaint was reviewed and immediately tossed out after it was determined that Wright did not breach the code of ethical conduct in any way, but was the real purpose behind the filing of such a complaint to intimidate Wright into stopping his investigatory activities before he uncovered even more damaging information?
Wright, a Certified Fraud Examiner, recently produced documents proving that Senator Richard Lugar hasn't been a resident of Indiana for over 30 years, resulting in a nationwide media firestorm and plummeting approval ratings for the longtime Senator. According to the Weekly Standard, Lugar's approval rating has recently fallen below 40% (See this link for details).

Since the news of Lugar's residency problems has been public for several weeks, why file a complaint now? Could it be that Lugar and his followers are aware of the fact that Wright has been receiving "tips" from anonymous sources that could lead to more politically-threatening information?
Desperate times call for desperate measures, after all. It's clear that filing a bogus ethics complaint with the ACFE is a desperate attempt to silence Lugar's critics and to cut the flow of information from its source.
Thankfully, Wright is not intimidated by this sophomoric attempt to silence a private citizen. Members of the Tea Party have referred to Wright as "brave," considering the suspicious untimely death of Andrew Breitbart, another patriot who was adept at uncovering political corruption.
Another noteworthy point of interest is the fact that Abdul Hakim-Shabazz, the Indy blogger with a rather large ego and attitude to match, knew about the ethics complaint before Wright was ever notified, which leaves one to wonder to what extent he is involved in the failed attempt to silence and intimidate a private citizen. It's no secret that Abdul is a shill for many in the Republican establishment to the point that many have questioned his ethics over the years. The complaint contained email copies only sent to a Lugar senior advisor giving him an opportunity to provide contrary evidence.
Maybe Abdul has wandered from his earlier self-proclaimed Conservative and Libertarian beliefs to a left of center position. When Abdul asked Wright to comment on the anonymous complaint, he did not print any of his responses. Why?
Wright said that he has not expressed an opinion regarding Senator Lugar's guilt or innocence of voter fraud. He said, "The Daily Caller, Associated Press and others contacted me, not vice versa, and I agreed to provide them with copies of documents. They arrive at their own conclusions."
Sit back and relax, folks. If the paranoia in the Lugar camp is any indication, perhaps the rumors about Swiss bank accounts and political corruption are true. If so, I can't think of a better person to dig up the facts than Greg Wright.
