Are we to believeposted by The Vidiot @ 1:03 PM Permalink that this guy tied himself to an anchor, then shot himself with a shotgun AND THEN threw himself overboard??

Excerpt: In a statement, Merrill's relatives say they were - quote - "shocked at the news and found it very difficult to accept."However, Merrill's history is, um, interesting. He was president of the Ex-Im Bank (Cheney swore him in). Said bank has a lot to do with loans to the Coalition Provisional Authority. And the CPA has some 'splaining to do with regads to $21 billion. My guess? Mr. Merrill knew where the money went and was therefore, a liability.
