Does anyone remember Nixon’s pal Bebe Rebozo?

OmG - I was in 9th grade I believe when this all went down. Carol Leonnig has a new book out ‘Zero Fail’ - All coming back to me now and makes me wonder:

Is Trump even more corrupt than Nixon? I’ve got even money on Donald but history will write the final chapter.

Anyway, they have the same, amazing Florida sleaze factor!

I see that you lifted another fantasy from the catalogue in your head.

Thank you for yet another pithy historical offering! :)

Beto is Texas and I’m not familiar with any corruption on his part. Bone up on your Florida political history young man ;-)

Nixon was a Californian that was born in the state and served as a politician there up until becoming vice-president. It was in California that he was first called "tricky Dicky". The sleazy California effect cannot be understated. In 1969 Nixon appointed Charles Keating head of a sleazy commission (President's Commission on Obscenity and Pornography).

As we all know Charles Keating was a crook defrauding and destroying the lives of thousands of investors through Lincoln Savings and Loan in CALIFORNIA. It was also discovered that another sleazy politician, John McCain received free trips and money from Keating and helped Keating in his criminal endeavor.

And there you have but one small example of the California sleaze factor.

You can do this with most states and make Democrats or Republicans guilty by association with a particular state.

The state rests. Too fking funny.

Okay fair enough, but more conmen and tax cheats wind up in Florida. It is where one goes to fly under the radar. Just ask Rick Scott who pulled off the biggest Medicaid fraud in US history, yet slithered his way out of prosecution, and then got elected 3 times.

You're confusing Florida with Washington D.C.. You can find the biggest assembly of crooks on Capitol Hill.

Statement rated TRUE ^ There is an indisputably high concentration of sleaze on Cap Hill : Cruz, Hawley, Gohmert, Gaetz, Gosart, McTurtle, Kevin, Rand, Marco, Scott, etc etc etc

They’ll all be retiring to Florida soon ;)

I used to go to a place in the Bahamas called Walkers Key. Rumor had it that it was owned by Bebe Rebozzo.

And the most infamous of all the crooks: Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Hoyer, Clyburn, Jefferies, Aguilar, Maloney, Schumer, Durbin, Merkley, Warner, Warren and all of the other democrats.

They would have retired to California but it's run by another democrat and becoming a real shithole, so they will probably retire in well-managed Florida whose Governor will be the next President of the United States.

Funny how the rats always move to nice areas.

LBJ was a legendary old crook but the media loved the big lug. They actually joked about dead Texans voting for him. There's a story about LBJ activists bugging Goldwater's plane. Black Bag tricks were all the rage but the mainstream media hated Nixon. Would any newspaper get away with pulling the stuff Woodward/Bernstein got way with? Imagine an anonymous unverified informant who's identity was kept secret until he died and couldn't verify information? Democrats wouldn't stand for it even if their minions in the media turned on them. Stodgy old Nixon wasn't half as interesting as the sex, drugs and rock&roll of the Clinton administration but the media was more interested in 2nd rate burglaries in republican administrations than mysterious deaths and allegations of rape in a democrat administration. Nixon was the liberal media's high water mark and they still dig up poor old Tricky Dick when democrats get in trouble.

I've pre-ordered that book...looks interesting. When I was stationed at Pt. Mugu when Reagan was President, he would fly in every 3 day weekend (and take his helo to Santa Barbara)...I'd chat up some of the advanced SS agents. We'd know when they were there because some would try to disguise themselves as military, wearing everything wrong.

So you support Nixon's criminality. Why am I not surprised.

My Dad worked at Pt Mugu civil service (Apollo Program mostly) from ‘55 to ‘70. I got to shake hands with JFK when I was about 4 years old!
