Thats exactly how Haughty got elected - and Ahern was his underling (Minister of Finance - no less!).
The man learned well from his other previous crook!
...And think on this, the Mahon Tribunal only really dealed with a few financial dealings, within a very small couple of years.
So what might have been going on for some time before that and with how many other people, over years, decades...?
We will never know!
...Well unless Ahern is in a dock and maybe - maybe spills some secrets he's keeping. A dock where many maybe still in power, does not want to see him in!
