Solorz-Żak - an honest man!

http://wiadomosci.onet.pl/1609931,11,item.html

I signed an agreement with the secret police, but I never worked for them. All my friends were in the secret police, they arranged foreign travel for me under 20 different passports and when Communism fell I suddenly became incredibly wealthy ... BUT I'm an honest guy and a patriot through and through! Poland can rely on people like me
