And with ... Jefferson, the Senator who sold his Senate career for 90 grand in cold cash.



And with Murtha ... the "unindicted co conspiracer of ABSCAM fame" ... who was offered bribes by fake Arab Shieks but turned them down "AT THIS TIME", and did not tell anyone about the illegal activity he was contemplating.

And Barney Frank ... whose boyfriend ran a male prostitution ring out of Franks plush home. And rejected appeals for several years to reign in Fannie Mae and Freddy Macs' loans to crack dealers, criminals and homeless people making only panhandled money for more booze. ( way to go Frank )

Makes the guy in the toilet stall look positively almost normal.

I seriously have to wonder when you people are going to stop making corruption about one party or the other.

How about this guy get thrown into the jail cell waiting for Ted Stevens? The one that (one way or another) he'll NEVER EVER SEE? Talk about FAIR. Convicted of seven felonies and unlikely to ever see the inside of a jail cell? Am I supposed to rail against REPUBLICANS or CONSERVATIVES because of that?

Seriously, get hold of yourselves. Every time some politician with a D next to his name gets arrested all the "R"s on here start listing other corrupt politicians with "D"s next to their names to "prove" how corrupt Democrats are. When a politician with an R next to his name is arrested, all the "D"s here do the same.

ANYONE SEE A PATTERN FORMING? If the only pattern you see is "on the other side" you're blind.

NEW YORK TIMES

M. Spencer Green/Associated Press
Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich of Illinois.



By MONICA DAVEY
Published: December 9, 2008


Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich of Illinois was arrested by federal authorities on Tuesday morning and charged with corruption, including an allegation that he conspired to effectively sell President-elect Barack Obama’s seat in the United States Senate to the highest bidder.

Mr. Blagojevich, a Democrat, called his sole authority to name Mr. Obama’s successor “golden,” and he sought to parlay it into a job as an ambassador or secretary of Health and Human Services, or a high-paying position at a nonprofit or an organization connected to labor unions, prosecutors said. He also suggested, they said, that in exchange for the Senate appointment, his wife could be placed on corporate boards where she might earn as much as $150,000 a year, and he tried to gain promises of money for his campaign fund.

If Mr. Blagojevich could not secure a deal to his liking, prosecutors said, he was willing to appoint himself.

“If I don’t get what I want and I’m not satisfied with it, then I’ll just take the Senate seat myself,” the governor said in recorded conversation, prosecutors said.



SOLD! Barrack Obama's Senate Seat

PT, it is both parties that are corrupt.

You know this.

Stop trying to potray us as off the wall like you were with all the Bush's fault BS.


This shows just how corrupt BOTH parties are.
Democrat? Republican? What is the differance when it comes to corruption?


Sheeeeeeeeeeeeesh.

No one is picking on anyone. These are facts whether you like them or not.

Now, go ahead and distort everything I said. ;-)



IT IS WHAT IT IS!

Of course both sides have their corrupt members, everyone knows it.

"You all"? \:\/

Case in point.

I'm not PORTRAYING YOU AS, as much as you are listing only "Democrats" and only EVER criticizing liberals/Democrats and then yammering on about how INDEPENDENT you are.

Specifically, in this thread? You listing only Democrats to prove "all" politicians are corrupt.

LOL

Of course they are facts. But the fact remains that when commenting on a story like this you ONLY focus on the negatives of corrupt Democrats/liberals and never list Republicans to illustrate "both parties'" corruption.

I don't have to distort anything you've said. I'm right, you're wrong. Of course this time you not only listed only Democrats, but you excused the actions of a corrupt Republican in the same "breath"! hahahahaha

I didn't hear a peep when Hevesi ran knowing he had to step down if elected, then the most annoying thing is idiot voters voted for him. How wrong is that? I heard a lot of gripe when Stevens ran though. I think in both cases neither of them should have ran!

Well, since I live in Alaska it stands to reason I was concerned primarily with Stevens. I didn't even know who Hevesi was until his name popped up on the forum and, to my knowledge, he wasn't running for office while under indictment and then after conviction on seven felonies. I'm not as familiar with that case as he's a NYC politician and I mostly pay attention to Upstate NY issues and representatives.

So was he convicted when he ran or was the conviction handed down after he was elected? All the online articles on this suck - no timelines. I see he won't be serving any time either. Christ.

You realize this is because they are POWERFUL MEN not because of the little letter after their names, right?

Yes. Barney FRANK, a US congressman, allowed his boyfriend to run a male prostitution ring from his own HOME.

Yeah, like Barney didn't know a thing about that. LOL!

ANd I said SEEM ... that toilet idjit's shinanagins were NOT normal nor could they be construed to be.

But Franks' right on track to make them SEEM almost normal.

So there.

Nah nah nah nah nah! ;-)
