What happened that he got busted? Fall guy? This same stuff goes on in Chicago, the WH, Traficant's hairpiece ,NY NY, Y Town, daily- they just don't go to court, caught, much less convicted.

The two people responsible for the NO mess after Katrina, never held fully accountable for the destruction and death they caused.....
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Maybe he and Kwami Kilpatrick can share a cell before they go to hell. :tongue2:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
