This was a load of BS from the start. Why is he on trial and Coburn not?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON ó The Senate Ethics committee has admonished Republican Sen. Tom Coburn over his involvement with a staffer to former Sen. John Ensign.


In a letter released Friday, the six-member panel said Coburn's communications and actions with Doug Hampton were improper conduct and warranted a public letter of qualified admonition. The committee said contact between the two violated the Senate rule barring contact on legislative matters within the first year of a staffer's departure.

The panel said the letter closes the matter. </div></div>

Enough said.

Another result of the Bush/Gonzo politicizing of the DOJ, and a total waste of tax payers money.

Claerly, with all of Edwards' millions, he could have afforded easily, to pay whatever that woman needed from him, if not for the fact that he did not want Elizabeth to find out about his stupidity!

This was just another Repiglican witch hunt.

Gets disgusting, watching all of the Repigs get away with everything, while every single little Democratic blip is blown into a major event!

Repiglicans just refuse to leave, and refuse to answer, and nobody from the press asks a second time.


Sanford left his state for weeks, screwing his mistress, and left the country, annd was aught dead to rights in a big huge lie! They STILL didn't throw him out!

Like Boehner, and Bush One and Two, he couldn't stop crying, /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cry.gif WHA WHA WHA....
