    Though it may not seem possible, this clown may be even greasier, stranger and more corrupt than Donald Trump. His sentencing comes up in August. Unlikely he'll ever again see the light of day. Judge ruled him to be a flight risk, so like Crooked Paul Manafort, he's on home detention wearing an ankle bracelet.

    Former congressman Steve Stockman was always one of those kind of creepy politicians that other politicians try to keep at a distance just in case it might rub off on them. He always acted as if the rules did not apply to him, sometimes even as if human decency did not apply to him. Stockman won two non-consecutive terms in Congress in somewhat fluke elections.

    Over three decades, Stockman ran in more elections than he won. Finally, today, his string ran out as a federal jury in Houston convicted him of 23 counts of fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison on each count. Barring a successful appeal, Steve Stockman is about to spend more time in a federal penitentiary than he did in Congress.

    Stockman’s spent much of his life as a man who did not have to follow the rules, and it caught up with him as a jury decided he had fraudulently raised money for a charity and then converted the funds to personal use, using it for, among other things, investigating potential political opponents and paying entry fees to amusement parks.

    On Thursday, the jury told Steve Stockman that the rules do apply to him.​

    I just heard about this clown. WHAT A SLIMEBALL.

    Reminds me of JOHN ENSIGN (R) from NEV who resigned ONE DAY before the Senate ethics cmte. opened a report on him! And the GOP LET HIM off without so much as a reprimand--got all his pay and benefits. A born again, Promise Keepers SLIMY POS!
