Anyone else shocked? Her handler, Chakrabarti, sounds like a real peach. His name just keeps popping up.

These young hussies, of which the democrats are so proud, have figured out the obvious.  As long as their crimes are not too egregious, the worst that will happen is they will get a slap on the wrist and a soft one at that. pillowfight33333

Seriously, who did not see this coming. The Democrat party is rife with corruption. Frankly I would have been more surprised if she was not implicated in some scheme.

Just saw a clip where she was asked about the charges. She mumbled something about "conservatives" and "bogus" as she scuttled away. Not eager to blather in front of the cameras this time. :silly:
