Ukraine's own Baghdad Jims?? Maybe not.

Is it all a matter of price? A handful of Democratic congressmen past and present received an expenses-paid junket to Ukraine to view the 10-31-04 election and declared the election "fair" and "accurate". The trip to Ukraine was paid for by a lobbyist registered as an agent of Russia-backed presidential candidate Viktor Yanukovych.

One caveat: this was the initial stage of the elections with more than 20 candidates where Yanukovych and Viktor Yushchenko both received 39% of the vote; not the runoff that everyone (except Russia) says is a fraud.
