    I've been LMAO at this crook all weekend--he's been all over our news. I particularly loved one interview he gave, loudly proclaiming his innocence: "I didn't do nuthin'. That ain't me man, that's not my crack pipe. I been set up." Actually he said cash, not crack pipe but, other than that he could've been plucked right from a recent episode Cops. Oh wait, maybe he'll be a feature crook on Cops next season! Reminds me of the old bumper sticker from the Agnew era: Maryland has the best politicians money can buy. What a loser.

    oh, wow, you sure got me on that on dog.

    as usual, you cant stick to the subject. the subject is people caught with stuff in their pants.
    i can counter with sandy berger (stealing classified documentsand in his socks, technically the same since your pants cover your socks)

    so there - thats TWO instances of democrats stealing money or classified terrorism documents just before the 9/11 hearings - could be worse than cash)

    and there's william jefferson with $95K in his freezer, he was just waiting for an oppurtunity to thaw it all out and stuff it in his pants i am certain.


    so now what does abramhoff have to do with that?

    Actually both stories Joe posted links to said she stuffed the cash in her bra. I'm not sure where the pants reference came from.

    There are more than enough corrupt politicians, R & D to go around.

    BTW I'll post anything that pleases me. Don't like it...don't read it.

    Yep, you win. There's no Republican so cheap that either the bribes he takes or the ones he gives could fit in a pair of pants. I thought the issue was corruption...

    To find corruption, simply follow the money as the money follows power. Since 1994, I suspect that Republicans have won the corruption race to fill their own pockets based simply on the fact they controlled Congress two-thirds of the time. Look between WWII and 1992, and I suspect Democrats won the corruption race because they controlled Congress most of the time.

    Corruption takes many forms. Those sticking cash in their pants or into their freezers are truly the cheap crooks. The big crooks measure their rewards in millions and have many more creative ways of burying the money. Until 1980, members of the House were permitted to convert unused campaign funds to personal use when they retired and those elected prior to 1980 still have that right. Even without that, retired members of Congress can and do continue spending campaign funds for entertainment following retirement at a rate estimated at about $500,000 per year each. Not bad when you have no office to run for.

    Calm down there JDog; you're beginning to sound like a petulant Roger Perry or a toddler tattling to Mama. Even Yardley kept on topic. Until you came sniveling onto this thread whining about GOP corruption, no one said anything about party affiliation of the accused nor stated that any one party has a monopoly on graft and moral turpitude.

    I simply look across the river and laugh at the greed and graft in Prince Georges' officaldom, the armpit of the D.C. metro area. The fact that subroc heard about the Johnsons caper up in New England made it even more amusing. Another public servant from P.G. County MD caught with his pants down, what a surprise!
