Chuck Schumer reveals he tried to bribe Scott Brown
« on: March 24, 2014, 06:55:03 AM »
From an interview in The New Republic:

Quote
“I went to Scott Brown and said, 'If you give us the 60th vote for the Citizens United rollback, we won’t go after you.' I spent a lot of time lobbying him, and met some of his friends and had them lobby him. He said yes. Then he said no. So I wanted to recruit the strongest candidate against him, and I thought that was Elizabeth Warren.”

"In the excitement of great popular elections, deciding the policy of the country, and its vast patronage, frauds will be committed, if a chance is given for them." —Richard Henry Dana, Jr.

Integrity and pride is not part of the democratic party. They are loyal to the party, but have no sense of loyalty to the American people. They are OK with that, as long as they get what they want.

You could say the same for most of the GOP.
