These investigative news reports into the sex life of a former US Senator like Edwards?
Edited on Sat Jan-23-10 11:33 AM by NNN0LHI
Why none of the same type of investigative news reports for current sitting US Senators like Vitter or Ensign with similar issues?

Can someone explain this to me?

Why is one news worthy with reporters assigned to keep digging deeper while the other two aren't?

Am I missing something here?

1. Do you think party affiliation has any explanatory power in this case?

9. Funny that I haven't heard one mention of that on cable news
Wall to wall Edwards. But no Ensign. Kind of like a "if a tree falls in the woods", deal.

5. Too bad these media whores did not expend as much energy
looking into fake yellow-cake stories regarding Nigeria and Iraq, or where did that pallet of $9 billion in cash go missing to in Iraq? What scum is living fat in Palm Beach or Hawaii on that stolen money?

If they did at least f'ing try to report real news I might get interested in what they say again. Until then they are nothing but tabloid news hounds.

11. A minor punctation correction.
Remove the question mark in your comment and replace it with a period and it becomes clearer.

7. YOUR campaign dollars paying for Edwards mistress is whats being investigated
Edited on Sat Jan-23-10 12:11 PM by stray cat
I for one don't want my campaign contributions legally going to bribing sexual liasons to keep quiet or paying them a million dollar salary to take the candidates picture twice

8. How did Vitter pay his prostitutes to put diapers on him?
Credit card? Check? Cash? Where did that money come from?

These weren't any nickel and dime hookers we are talking about here.

And I don't mind Edwards being investigated.

Lets just investigate them all.
