The Democrat Culture of Corruption continues. Don't forget: former Democrat New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was recently indicted for taking bribes and kickbacks for contracting work related to rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina. I should compile a list of Democrats indicted and/or convicted of corruption the past few years, but it would be a long list. Let's see here, the Mayor and some city council members along with the administrator of Bell, CA, where charged with corruption--all are Democrats. Then we have the Democrat Mayor of Trenton, NJ, Tony Mack, indicted for corruption late last year, also a Democrat. A little over two years ago the Mayor of Detroit, MI, Kwame Kilpatrick, a Democrat, was indicted for corruption. I could go on all day making a list of indicted or convicted Democrats. Then we have Barack H. Obama, who steered TRILLIONS of dollars to his unionized, welfare, and financial backers, including giving "loans" of taxpayer money to companies owned by Al Gore, Robert Kennedy Jr., and his campaign donors. If that isn't corruption, I don't know what is.

Well, I suppose that "equal opportunity" also applies to corruption.

I'm certain there is a good explanation and it's not his fault.

Kind of funny how the how this story, along with the Sen Menendez underage prostitute story barely makes a blip among the mainstream media but if a Republican politician takes a sip of water on camera it's comparable to the 2nd coming of Christ. MSNBC showe the the Rubio clip no less then 155 times over the following three days.

what is up with illinois (chicago) politics? How long and how transparent is the criminality inside illinois? The problem is the nation jokes and winks about it but who is really losing? americans and the people of chicago...i'm guessing the white house will have nothing to say.
