Veep Sued for Alleged Accounting Fraud

( - Judicial Watch, the conservative group that filed numerous lawsuits against former President Bill Clinton, is also going after the Bush administration. The public interest law firm is suing Vice President Dick Cheney and Halliburton, the company he served as CEO for five years, for alleged accounting fraud. At a press conference Wednesday morning, Judicial Watch chairman Larry Klayman said that Cheney and Halliburton "overstated their revenues by tens of millions of dollars and that's an understatement." The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Halliburton shareholders, is seeking "millions and millions of punish the people involved," said Klayman. He refused to give an exact number. "To look the other way for the vice president would be to set a precedent that the Washington elite are above the law," said Klayman. Cheney's spokesperson had no comment, and Halliburton said the case has no merit. The suit was filed Wednesday in federal court in Dallas, where Halliburton is based.
