Is this man Kosher?

US Ambassador to Greece Thomas Miller

"Ambassador to Greece, Thomas Miller, who was, until recently, the United States ambassador to Bosnia, is rumored to have conspired [in 2000] with Milorad Dodik, then prime minister of the Bosnian-Serb Republic, to divert $500,000 of an American aid package to the Gore/Lieberman campaign. This claim, made privately by a former minister in Dodik's government, has been confirmed by another highly placed source in Banja Luka, the capital of the Republika Srpska (RS).

The alleged deal was simple: in July [2000], Ambassador Miller is said to have arranged a multimillion-dollar ASAID grant for the RS budget. Once the money arrived in Banja Luka, half a million was allocated to the prime minister's "discretionary fund" -- over which he had exclusive control -- and promptly sent back to the United States as his contribution to the Gore/Lieberman campaign. This was not the only payment to a Western political figure from the fund (the existence of which Dodik admitted in a television interview last November), but it was the largest single disbursement....The partial disclosure of the Gore deal [was] published by the Banja Luka magazine Extra in February of 2000, [and] it looked like the cat was out of the bag. Interestingly, there has been no follow-up. Source. Chronicles. Aug.2001. p.6"
