You just made my point, a lurker not a member.

Whatever dude. Blackmail isn't limited to "The Jews(tm)". It's been around for a long time. Remember Senator Geary from The Godfather 2?

Of course you do.

Nice logic. Unless a behavior is exclusively performed by one group, their overrepresentation or tendency toward it is negligible. Here's a movie quote bitch: how could you be so obtuse

That was more a favour trade, though? We'll clear up your mess, but you owe us. I don't recall any threat to expose the Senator. I may well be wrong here. Maybe the Senator feared exposure, and so the threat was implicit. But once the mess was dealt with, it would be the word of a Corleone against that of a US Senator - survivable if uncomfortable.

And every favour has a price. He testified as to the bona fides of the Corleones at the Senate hearing. Debt paid.
