That's great! So, I gather that in the future we'll be seeing you get pissed in threads other than this one.

Should anyone else be in need of a remedial lesson concerning the gist of this thread, it has to do with something FZ said during his introduction to Stink-Foot on Make A Jazz Noise Here.

If you had properly used a colon, rather than a comma, I would have understood your meaning. I thought you were referring to the topic's title, and inviting/demanding me to kiss your ass.

…..but what do I know? I'm just a "mental midget". :mrgreen:

In this case, the crux of the biscuit is not the apostrophe.

If you're going to engage in name-calling, please improve your writing skills. It's "homophobic", Mr. Sierra.

I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. - Sorry -

Quote:
In November 2005, the initial five e-mails were leaked out of Alexander's office, after the recipient (a page whom Alexander sponsored) reported them to the Congressman.[18]

Two Florida newspapers, the St. Petersburg Times and the Miami Herald, and the Fox News Channel acquired copies of these e-mails in November 2005, but decided not to publish a story. According to an editor at the St. Petersburg Times, they received the e-mails from a source in Alexander's office...

...At least thirteen Republican Congressmen or congressional staffers acknowledged that they knew of the five initial e-mails before they were made public: Majority Leader John Boehner (Ohio); Reynolds; Alexander and John Shimkus (Ill.) (Chairman of the House Page Board); Hastert, Mike Stokke, Ted Van Der Meid, and Tim Kennedy in Hastert's office; Paula Nowakowski, Boehner's chief of staff; Trandahl; Alexander's chief of staff (Royal Alexander, no relation) and another Alexander staffer, Danielle Savoy, Fordham; Kolbe, and Kolbe's staffer.

Even though Fox News and the Republican leadership knew Foley was a pedophile, they let him keep his job so they wouldn't lose the seat.

AUSTIN, Texas – A grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Friday for abusing the powers of his office by carrying out a threat to veto funding for state prosecutors investigating public corruption, making the possible 2016 presidential candidate his state’s first indicted governor in nearly a century.

Perry was indicted by an Austin grand jury on felony counts of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant. Maximum punishment on the first charge is five to 99 years in prison. The second is two to 10 years.

Perry and his aides say he didn’t break any laws.

Former Virginia Gov. McDonnell and Wife Found Guilty
Jury Backs Government Charge That Couple Broke Law by Accepting Lavish Gifts from a Donor

Image

RICHMOND, Va.—A jury found former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, guilty of a slate of public-corruption charges on Thursday, rejecting the couple's defense that their marriage was too broken for them to conspire and that they didn't accept lavish gifts in exchange for backing a wealthy donor's business.

Mr. McDonnell broke down in tears and covered his face with his hands as the verdict was read. The former Republican governor was convicted on 11 conspiracy-related counts. Mrs. McDonnell maintained her composure, but appeared to battle tears as she learned that the jury found her guilty on nine counts, including conspiracy and obstruction of justice.

Mr. and Mrs. McDonnell had both pleaded not guilty to the 14 charges they faced. They were acquitted of making false statements on bank-loan applications and Mrs. McDonnell was found not guilty of charges related to accepting golf games and gear, among other things.

The jury of seven men and five women deliberated for about 48 hours after hearing testimony for more than a month in federal court, not far from the governor's mansion where the couple lived from 2010 through January.

Mr. and Mrs. McDonnell, who have five children and are both 60 years old, are expected to be sentenced Jan. 6 by Judge James R. Spencer. They face lengthy prison terms and hefty fines.

The McDonnells had no visible contact with each other Thursday and they left the courthouse separately.

As he drove off, Mr. McDonell told reporters: "All I can say is my trust remains in the Lord."

That's a great excuse, though. "We couldn't conspire because our marriage was broken". I'm sure "The Lord" will give them 5 years off in purgatory for that line alone.

Judge rules he won't dismiss Rick Perry case over paperwork technicality

Image

(CNN) -- A state district judge in Texas has denied a defense motion to have two felony charges dismissed against outgoing Gov. Rick Perry.

Perry's defense argued the indictment should have been voided over questions regarding the validity of the oath of office taken by the special prosecutor in the case, Michael McCrum, as well as other paperwork technicalities.

The governor's legal team argued that McCrum incorrectly took the oath of office when McCrum was sworn in as special prosecutor in August 2013, and thus, McCrum's work over the past 15 months should be considered invalid.

The district judge disagreed.

"This court concludes that Mr. McCrum's authority was not voided by the procedural irregularities in how and when the oath of office and statement of officer were administered and filed," Judge Bert Richardson said in his ruling.

Richardson concluded that because the two parties didn't dispute that McCrum did in fact take the oath of office, McCrum's lack of a signature on the paperwork doesn't invalidate his pledge.

"It is the act of swearing, not the signature itself, that is essential," the ruling reads.

Perry was indicted in August on two felony charges, accused of abusing his power as governor in trying to pressure a Travis County district attorney to step down. Perry had threatened to veto a bill that would provide funding for a public integrity unit headed Rosemary Lehmberg, in light of Lehmberg being arrested for drunken driving in August 2013.

Top Aide to Aaron Schock Resigns Over Racist Facebook Comments

MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) —
A top aide to Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock has resigned following reports that he posted racially charged comments on social media.

Benjamin Cole had served as the Republican lawmaker's spokesman since March.

Schock said in a statement to the Peoria Journal Star that he was "extremely disappointed by the inexcusable and offensive online comments made by a member of my staff."

The liberal website Think Progress on Thursday published posts from Cole's personal Facebook page that included comments mocking two African Americans outside his Washington apartment.

Earlier this week, Cole tried to stop a Washington Post reporter from taking photos of Schock's congressional office, which is decorated in a style modeled after the TV show "Downton Abbey."

A watchdog group has requested an ethics inquiry over the interior design work.

This staunch anti-gay legislator denies that he is in fact - gay! (not that there's anything wrong with it)
Of course, there's something wrong with making things difficult for others, in order to make things easier for yourself.

I think he should get at least 5 years extra for [and I paraphrase] "decorating his office in the style of Downton Abbey" as well as for wearing a turquoise belt. Dear me, the Republicans have got to start addressing the ISUES.

Aaron Schock reimburses US for $40,000 Downton Abbey office remodel

Image

Illinois Republican representative Aaron Schock has personally reimbursed the government $40,000 for renovations to his congressional office, which was modeled after the TV show Downton Abbey.

Schock is under scrutiny for using an office expense account to pay for the redecorating, as well as taxpayer and campaign funds for flights on donor-owned planes and concert tickets.

Financial records obtained by the Associated Press show that Schock paid $35,000 earlier this month to the owner of the decorating firm, Euro Trash. He paid $5,000 more on Thursday.

The Washington Post was first to describe the office decorations. A watchdog group has requested a House ethics review of the congressman’s spending.

Aaron Schock resigns after new questions about mileage expenses

Illinois Rep. Aaron Schock resigned Tuesday, less than 12 hours after POLITICO raised questions about tens of thousands of dollars in mileage reimbursements he received for his personal vehicle.

Schock billed the federal government and his campaign for logging roughly 170,000 miles on his personal car from January 2010 through July 2014. But when he sold that Chevrolet Tahoe in July 2014, it had roughly 80,000 miles on the odometer, according to public records obtained by POLITICO under Illinois open records laws. The documents, in other words, indicate he was reimbursed for 90,000 miles more than his car was driven.

The discrepancy added to a growing wave of ethical and legal problems for the 33-year-old politician.

Feb. 2 - The Washington Post reports on Schock’s “Downton Abbey”-inspired office in the Rayburn House Office Building, featuring pheasant feathers and a bust of home-state President Abraham Lincoln.

Feb. 9 - Following the Post report and another revelation from USA Today, POLITICO details Schock’s lavish—but legal—spending at pricey hotels in Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami Beach and other posh destinations for campaign purposes.
“In addition to staying at expensive hotels, Schock also has spent more than $90,000 in campaign dollars on private air charters, an unusually high sum for a rank-and-file member of the House,” POLITICO reported at the time.

Feb. 10 - Schock launches his own internal review of tens of thousands of dollars in reimbursements he received for using his official vehicle. POLITICO reports that he has received approximately $1,000 in “private auto mileage” reimbursements from his monthly congressional allowance.

Feb. 24 - Schock brings on two prominent Washington defense lawyers and a public relations firm to battle the brewing controversy over his use of campaign and official accounts to pay for expensive travel and lodging accommodations.
His office declined to answer when asked about a 2011 trip to London in which he stayed at a five-star hotel where the cheapest room went for $500 per night. Documents obtained by POLITICO also showed he was scheduled to visit expensive clothing stores and dined at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.

Feb. 26 - It comes out that the Illinois lawmaker never disclosed receiving dinner or drinks during the London trip, POLITICO reports.

Feb. 27 - Schock suspends fundraising events.
The same day, POLITICO reports that Schock spent nearly $15,000 in government money for private flights between October and December.

March 1 - The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Schock used taxpayer money to fly from Peoria to Chicago for a Bears game the previous November.

March 6 - More details about Schock’s international spending surface, as some in his circle and the House Republican Conference fear the Illinois lawmaker could face an Ethics Committee investigation. He holds a news conference but does not alert the national media.

March 9 - POLITICO finds that Schock misreported his payment for the private flight from Peoria to Chicago for the Bears game, indicating the more than $3,000 as a software expenditure. In reality, the $3,000 was a deposit in addition to the $10,000 that Schock previously disclosed that he was billed for the flight, said Keith Sillats, the chief technology officer for Bytelogics.

March 11 - POLITICO asks the congressman in his home district whether he thought he had broken any rules or federal regulations. “Well, I certainly hope not,” Schock said. “I’m not an attorney.”

March 16 - Investigators from the Office of Congressional Ethics start reaching out to people in Schock’s circle.

March 16 - POLITICO asks Schock about tens of thousands of dollars in questionable mileage reimbursements.

March 17 - Schock announces his resignation, effective March 31.
