Hastert wants Duke-Stir "thinking long and hard about how he broke trust"


Speaker Hastert Comments on the Cunningham Sentencing

3/3/2006 6:45:00 PM

To: National Desk

Contact: Ron Bonjean of the Office of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, 202-225-2800

WASHINGTON, March 3 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Speaker of the House J. Dennis Hastert (R-IL) today released the following statement regarding the sentencing of former Representative Randy "Duke" Cunningham:

"The court has handed Congressman Cunningham the punishment for the crimes he committed. This sentence should send a strong message that no one is above breaking our nation's laws including, the Members of Congress who make them. It is my hope that Congressman Cunningham will spend his incarceration thinking long and hard about how he broke the trust of the voters that elected him and those on Capitol Hill who served with him."

1. Here's the translation of what Hastert said:
The court has handed Congressman Cunningham the punishment for the crimes he committed -- The moron got caught. What an f**king dork.

This sentence should send a strong message that no one is above breaking our nation's laws including, the Members of Congress who make them -- Memo change the laws so what he did isn't a crime

It is my hope that Congressman Cunningham will spend his incarceration thinking long and hard about how he broke the trust of the voters that elected him and those on Capitol Hill who served with him."
-- Randi you better shut the f**k up if you don't wanna get shanked in the shower.

2. Both Hastert and Cunningham were "Heroes of the Taxpayer Award"
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 04:27 AM by lebkuchen
in 2002, awarded by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), a "non-partisan" coalition of taxpayers and taxpayer groups who oppose all federal and state tax increases. Any commentary about Cunningham's 8 year plus sentence from ATR's president Grover Norquist?
