49. Take a bow, Jim Moran, (D), VA
Edited on Tue Nov-08-05 09:32 AM by OldLeftieLawyer
My fucking Congressman was the guy who practically wrote and shepherded this bill through the House.

Let me tell you a little about our Congressman - who no longer gets my vote, even though he doesn't need it - and see what you think:

When he was Mayor of Alexandria, VA, he got caught taking bribe money from people who wanted the parking lot contract with the city.

So, of course, he ran for Congress and was elected.

His third marriage - two dirty divorces preceded this one - produced a beautiful little girl, who, at the age of two, was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer. President and Mrs. Clinton came to Alexandria to visit the Morans, made sure all sorts of NIH help was made available to the little girl, and, miraculously, she was cured.

Moran, by way of thanks, then voted for Clinton's impeachment. Did I mention that he was then in the process of leaving this third wife and this afflicted child who was just getting over her cancer treatment?

With three divorces, he was in solid debt, just flat broke. So, he got - quite magically - a $250,000 personal loan from MBNA. Interest-free. Then, because he is a diligent and conscientious Representative, working only for the good of his Northern Virginia constituents, he went to work on this bankruptcy bill for MNBA, a Delaware corporation (where Louis Freeh is now a senior vice-president, by the way).

Did I mention that the loan was forgiven, Moran married a millionaire real estate lady, and now they live in her great big house overlooking the Potomac?

Take a bow, Jim Moran, one Democrat who will never get my vote again.
