They are a disgrace

Posted by Realist on November 2, 2006 – 1:06 am

Josh Marshal at Talking Points Memo started to summarize the current Republican scandals:

We have Rep. Foley (R-FL) accused of various inappropriate sexual contact with underage congressional pages.

Then we have Rep. Gibbons (R-NV) in an on-going story about allegedly accosting/propositioning a woman other than his wife in a parking garage in Las Vegas. Gibbons is currently running for governor. And there’s a separate dimension of this scandal where his cronies are trying to cover up what happened. I guess this explains how things that happen in Vegas stay in Vegas.

Next we’ve got the older story of Rep. Don Sherwood (R-PA) who allegedly tried to strangle his mistress.

Then just last night we learned that the apparently more traditionally-minded Rep. John Sweeney (R-NY) “got into [a] verbal argument [with his wife] that turned a little physical by her being grabbed by the neck and pushed around the house.”

I think he’s missed a few. There’s Curt Weldon in PA, who helped his lobbyist daughter secure some dubious contracts. Then all the Reps who were associated with the Foley scandal, as well as the Abramoff scandal, and maybe the Cunningham scandal as well.

And that doesn’t even touch on the innumerable scandals emanating from the White House.

Oh, but wait. BILL CLINTON GOT A BLOW JOB IN THE OVAL OFFICE FROM A CONSENTING ADULT FEMALE!!!! You may now disregard all of the above.

  1. 1. the Rev. Jerry Gloryhole Said:

    The Rev here.
    Actually, dearie, he listed the recent sex scandals.
    Presumably the violence ones were a different post…it’s so hard to keep up. Allen’s goons, Cubin threatening the quad, so forth.

    I heard that the DOJ was sending 800 agents to ‘at risk’ precincts Monday to ensure the sanctity of voting.
    I’m betting they go to places carefully chosen by Herr Rove.
    And where’s Osama?
