28. Not "worthy?" How much campaign cash did Clinton spend on Monica--remind me, now?
"He didn't defraud a soul." Really? How do you know? How do you know where the money that his dead campaign manager used to buy this woman a house came from? How do you know where the ten and fifteen grand payments that this guy funneled to her over the course of the last few years originated? Did you have access to the books, is that it? Your posts are so authoritative, that's the impression you're creating.

We're not just talking about a single payment for a crappy set of videos, here. There's much more going on than that. If you paid attention to the whole tale, instead of putting your fingers in your ears and screeching "No, no, no!" you'd see that.

And don't tell me to "go do some homework" either. What did I say about politicians? I don't care what party they come from. No one is "exempt." Two wrongs don't make a right, either. If they spend donor funds on hankypanky, the horses, or fur coats for the wife, I have a fucking problem with that.

You're the only one who's whining about "felony charges" and/or "the waste of taxpayer dollars." For all you know, he could end up being fined if (and we can't know unless we investigate) he's found guilty. I'd say a good "fine" would be, oh, the cost of the investigation, plus a hundred grand, give or take. That would work for me.

Like it or not, this is a news story. It's more of one because Mrs. Edwards has decided to go on OPRAH and talk about it, and sell a book about it. Stop trying to be the gatekeeper of what people may, or may not, discuss. HIDE THREAD is your friend, you might want to use it before you blow a gasket.
