So former New Orleans major Ray Nagin was indicted on corruption charges a year ago. And he’s been convicted. Anyone surprised?
He was a completely incompetent dumbass during Katrina, and he’s a dumbass for taking bribes.
Good riddance. The people of NO deserve better.
I’m just about a absolutist when it comes to freedom of the press. Nothing is more core to American freedom.
The FCC proposed then killed (after enormous pushback) to question journalists and newsrooms about their practices.
CNN Interview with FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai that Blew the Whistle
Ajit Pai is a hero in my book.
The toadie that proposed this needs to be fired. Any slimeball that voted for it needs to be fired. Any politician that spoke in favor of this needs to be booted out of office.
The absolute last thing any free people need is for the government to be watching their newsrooms.
Can’t we at least agree on that?
Oh yea, all of the Americans that lost their health insurance due to Obamacare are liars. All of them.
“Despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”
The value of OC is debatable of course – personally I expect it to be a freaking disaster.
But one thing that’s not debatable is that it has done real harm to millions.
Harry’s a real piece of work, isn’t he? I wonder if he could be sued for slander.
Note: CNN headline significantly mis-characterizes the quote.
Rep. Michael Grimm, R-N.Y. – “Let me be clear to you, you ever do that to me again I’ll throw you off this fucking balcony…I’ll break you in half, like a boy.”
Maybe this stupid SOB should be charged with ‘criminal menacing’ or something.
Grimm, you’re a class act.
What a surprise, huh? Nagin charged with corruption for taking bribes related to New Orleans rebuilding.
That’s funny because if I lied about my degrees I lose my job. Wendy Davis is a hero. And it’s really funny because she has a pretty decent story. But she had to embellish it of course, just had to lie. Politicians can’t help it, can they?
Let me be clear here. It’s not that he uses cocaine, I don’t give a damn about that. It’s that he voted in favor of drug enforcement laws that he could not stand up to.
VA Governor McDonnell (R) and his wife apparently accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts while he was governor.
OK, so he hasn’t been convicted. Still, doesn’t it look like he and the wifey took bribes for favors?
NJ gov Christie’s (D) deputy chief of staff closed 3 lanes of the George Washington Bridge, going into a small town mayored by an opponent of Chris Christie, allegedly as retribution for the mayor’s lack of support for the gov.
- “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,” Kelly wrote in her Aug. 13 e-mail that ordered a 3 lane closure plan that wrought havoc on the GW bridge.
- “Got it” replied Wildstein.
I generally liked Christie. But it sure seems to me that either he ordered this or at least created a climate where his staff would think this was acceptable.
If Christie implicitly or explicitly ordered this action he should be removed from office and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
I’ve had this piece of crap in mind for a long time.
I’ve got no problem with people taking a strong political position but Grayson has a consistent record of straight out lying.
