Seems the reporter failed to mention that the ex-lawmaker just happened to be a Democrat. Why does that always seem to be the case. They are so quick to identify party affiliation if it's a Republican.

Doesn't the democratic party always say that they are the party of and for the people? The party that wants to help all of the people. Seems that they are the party of how much can I steal and add to my off shore bank accounts instead.What a bunch of two faced liars.

Yeah! that repug party that stole your ass blind for ten years are all great amerikans. Whats the value of your house now, if you live in one? Both parties are thieves making their money off ponzing you. You're all just too brain dead to figure this s--t out. It's all back stabbing religious touting crap that will screw us all into a world govt, controlling your every move. Only problem is that if any politicians or bankers from the usa run the world govt, it will be slow continued downhill misery for the taxpayers forever, like the past 50 years, but put into overdrive by the draftdodgers and criminals of the last 13 years.

I believe the democratic party says that because the politiburo said the same in the USSR where they had homes on the beach, and the people they were working for stood in line for bread and tollet paper.

And thats why as a conservative I want a small weak government. I have enough sense not to trust EITHER party.
