    Gov. Rod Blagojevich and his chief of staff, John Harris, were arrested by FBI agents on federal corruption charges Tuesday morning.

    Recently involved in a possible scandal, also, is Charlie Rangel, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, who forgot to report rental income and who got a $100,000 contribution for a company, in which Rangel protected a tax loophole worth tens of millions, leading to another contibution to a Rangel cause for $100,000, from that grateful company owner.

    Congressman Roy Jefferson, famous for stashing $90.000 in alleged bribe money into his freezer, but still claiming innocence and who received a committee chairmanship from Nancy Pelosi after his indictment, is one of several who seemed to get elevated from scandals.

    The Mayor of Detroit, several recent Democrat Mayors of Atlantic City, N.J.
    all convicted.

    Eliot Spitzer, Governor of New York.

    Democrats are often rewarded for their scandals. Look how they love Bill and Hillary.

    They even returned Marion Barry to power. Fine role model.

    The Mainstream Media makes as light as it can on Democrat scandals, often not even citing the party if the scandal involves a Democrat, but covering each Republican scandal with more attention than a Super Bowl contest, and the party identity, mentioned without fail and with great prominence in all cases.

    Republicans have had their share, though, generally speaking, Jack Abramowitz, Duke Cunningham, and Mark Foley were not nearly as high profile such as Governor Blagojevich, and Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York, sometimes dubbed client #9.

    You won't need to remind me. I know how to keep my shit straight.

    It might not be an off-target criticism of others though.

    Power and easy access to money are a temptation that all too many cannot resist, by they Liberal or Conservative. Whenever one party has had the majority of power for any length of time, that party will have more corruption. Why bribe people that cannot help you? We have seen this in the last eight years, from Haliburton to Delay. Now, as the Dems aquire more power, you will see many of them succumb to power and greed. We need men like Patrick Fitzgerald for this very reason.
