This should not have been a suprise…

January 30, 2008

…to anyone who has been paying attention for the last few decades.
The editorial board at the Manchester Union Leader are surprised that Hillary Rodham Clinton lied to the people of New Hampshire.

COURTING VOTERS in Iowa and New Hampshire, last August Sen. Hillary Clinton signed a pledge not to “campaign or participate” in the Michigan or Florida Democratic primaries. She participated in both primaries and is campaigning in Florida. Which proves, again, that Hillary Clinton is a liar.

Clinton kept her name on the Michigan ballot when others removed theirs, she campaigned this past weekend in Florida, and she is pushing to seat Michigan and Florida delegates at the Democratic National Convention. The party stripped those states of delegates as punishment for moving up their primary dates.

“I will try to persuade my delegates to seat the delegates from Michigan and Florida,” Clinton said last week, after the New Hampshire primaries and Iowa caucuses were safely over.

Clinton coldly and knowingly lied to New Hampshire and Iowa. Her promise was not a vague statement. It was a signed pledge with a clear and unequivocal meaning.

She signed it thinking that keeping the other candidates out of Michigan and Florida was to her advantage, but knowing she would break it if that proved beneficial later on. It did, and she did.

New Hampshire voters, you were played for suckers.

That is what the Clintons do, they lie. Continuously and without remorse.
It has been their pattern their entire political life and they will continue to do so.

GUILTY! GUILTY! GUILTY!

Ok, not yet, I’m just getting ahead of myself. Hillary’s corrupt fundraiser, Norman Hsu has been indicted by a federal grand jury on cheating investors and using that money to make illegal campaign contributions (all to democrats)
The AP reported the story:

A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted Norman Hsu, a top Democratic fundraiser accused of cheating investors of at least $20 million and using some of the money to make illegal donations to political campaigns.

In the 15-count indictment returned in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the government accused the 56-year-old clothing-industry entrepreneur of duping investors nationwide with a massive Ponzi scheme.

Democrat Party election officials in Ohio convicted of vote fraud

November 6, 2007

Now, democrats committing vote fraud is hardly news, neither is what NewsBusters points out, which that none of the MSM media outlets report that the two people convicted of vote fraud in the 2004 election in Ohio are “Democrat Party election officials in Cuyahoga County, one of Ohio’s most Democratic counties”.

According to the AP:

Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., was indicted Monday on federal charges of racketeering, soliciting bribes and money-laundering in a long- running bribery investigation into business deals he tried to broker in Africa.

The indictment handed up in federal court in Alexandria., Va., Monday is 94 pages long and lists 16 alleged violations of federal law that could keep Jefferson in prison for up to 235 years. He is charged with racketeering, soliciting bribes, wire fraud, money-laundering, obstruction of justice, conspiracy and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Jefferson is accused of soliciting bribes for himself and his family, and also for bribing a Nigerian official.

Almost two years ago, in August 2005, investigators raided Jefferson’s home in Louisiana and found $90,000 in cash stuffed into a box in his freezer.

It seems the democrat Culture of Corruption is continuing without missing a beat.
If this was a Republican, San Fran Nan and her MSM attack dogs would be calling for him to resign and/or his removal from office.
Her silence on the matter of WilliamCold Cash” Jefferson and the case of his bribes speaks volumes.

democrat House Speaker Nancy “SanFranNan” Pelosi follows in the foot steps of fellow California democrat Diane Feinstein, by setting up a Pork Barrel project that will funnel taxpayer dollars into her husbands pocket.

From Pollster.com and Eugene Volokh.
It seems the Senate democrat Majority Leader is “fact challenged”, or to put it plain, honest English, he has to lie to support his agenda.

HT to Mr. Reynolds.

Update: By way of Ed Driscoll, The five myths of Harry Reid.

That whole "Culture of Corruption" thing…

April 14, 2007

The democrats seem to have it well in hand.

Tennesee State Senator John Ford resigned from the state Senate after he has been brought up on charges of extortion, conspiracy and bribery.

The AP has a story on it. Interestingly enough, his political party is not mentioned in the story. Let’s test my theory here, hmmm…., yup, John Ford, who resigned in disgrace after accepting bribes (which gives him the moral high ground over democrat Louisiana congressman WilliamCold CashJefferson), is a democrat.

It seems while far left extremist liberal democrat Diane Feinstein, Senator from California was micromanaging Defense projects assigned to her husband’s company, she was also a member of the Senate committee responsible for “ethics reform.”

How convenient!

HT to Ms. Malkin

democrat Culture of Corruption continues…

March 29, 2007

This time it’s HCI‘s own Senator Diane Feinstein, hard far left extremist liberal democrat from California.
The JawaReport had the following commentary:

According to MetroActive, she resigned quietly (where was the MSM?) in January from a Military Construction Appropriations committee over a conflict of interest involving her husband, tens of millions of dollars in defense and construction contracts, etc.

MetroActive speculates that the resignation was due to the impending release of a scathing expose (funded by The Nation) that threatened to blow the lid off the air-tight kettledrum of ethical problems

Here are the details from MetroActive:

SEN. Dianne Feinstein has resigned from the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee. As previously and extensively reviewed in these pages, Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum’s ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.

As MILCON leader, Feinstein relished the details of military construction, even micromanaging one project at the level of its sewer design. She regularly took junkets to military bases around the world to inspect construction projects, some of which were contracted to her husband’s companies, Perini Corp. and URS Corp.

Perhaps she resigned from MILCON because she could not take the heat generated by Metro’s expose of her ethics (which was partially funded by the Investigative Fund of the Nation Institute). Or was her work on the subcommittee finished because Blum divested ownership of his military construction and advanced weapons manufacturing firms in late 2005?

The nice folk at the Jawa Report point out the reality of the matter:

This is genuine news. Political corruption on a scale as big as Duke Cunningham, and the mainstream press is worried about 8 US attorneys losing their jobs in a completely legal hard-ball political axing-session.
