A Lance Armstrong representative tried to make a donation of about $250,000 to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency before the agency launched the investigation that led to the cyclist being stripped of his Tour de France titles, the chief of the USADA told "60 Minutes Sports."
"I was stunned," Travis Tygart, the head of the anti-doping agency told "60 Minutes Sports" about the alleged 2004 offer. "It was a clear conflict of interest for USADA. We had no hesitation in rejecting that offer."
Armstrong or his representatives could not be reached for comment. Annie Skinner, a spokeswoman for the USADA, told CNN that Tygart's quotes, released by "60 Minutes Sports," were accurate.
I knew it all along.
It has been a few months since Lance has been in the news, hasn't it?
Next up: Zimmerman.

You called it, Rawr.
For years after learning Lancelot Armstrong was a doper, I endured friends and family who adored him and wouldn't listen to my "bee ess".
I hate to say that I told you so is a lie. I LOVE saying I told you so, especually @you democrats who jumped on Bush's "Iraqis have 9/11 WMD" War Wagon. What a bunch of turncoats you were.
All aboard the Ego Express.
Yeah, @Banasy. And after that, maybe we'll get around to finding out who those other 2 men were that police chased from Sandy Hook elementary school and arrested. (and then let go before even telling us they had arrested anyone!)
Scottish Mama had you pegged correctly, Schadenfreude boy.
