Politicians Gone Wild

Of course he should go to jail

The jury found Mr. DeLay knowingly funneled $190,000 in corporate donations to fellow Republicans running for the Texas legislature in 2002, violating state rules that ban companies from contributing to candidates' campaigns.


He was convicted on one count of money laundering, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 99 years, and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, which has a penalty of up to 20 years.

Prosecutors said they haven't yet decided whether to seek a prison term; sentencing is tentatively set for Dec. 20.

What is missing from our politicians?  Honesty.  Integrity. 

Whether it’s Tom DeLay or Charlie Rangel, these folks need to be held accountable to those of us who vote for them.  Who trusts anything anyone says anymore?

This comes as we’re seeing crackdowns on Insider Trading on Wall Street.

Please don’t tell me we are a society of liars and cheats.  If we don’t have honesty and integrity, all is lost.
