19. Good.
I want to hear his side of the story for we Americans are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but for now the whole thing is just too damaging in the court of public opinion.

I give him the benefit of the doubt; we'll know the truth sooner or later. In the meantime, this takes him off the right-wing echoplex by next week or so.

Now the Congressional Democrats will be able to say that they acted when one of their members had the taint of corruption or the appearance of wrongdoing.

Bushie said he'd fire anyone from his administration so accused, but ain't done shit.
