There are three ongoing investigations - the Senate Finance Committee, the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
To which are you referring as not having found any political motivation since the findings won't be revealed for another month or so?
So?

The Republican dogs hounded Clinton for 6 years before they finally coerced him into lying to Congress and that's ALL they could stick him with.

Your side is retarded and really just need to start doing their job and their principle purpose is NOT to unseat Democrats. Their JOB, the JOB they were elected to do is GOVERN not try to win Congressional seats and the White House which is ALL THEY FCKN DO!!!!!

How fckn' stupid are you?????

Ethical issue possibly but with a decent lawyer not guilty.

"A 19-year-old driver who crashed into a utility pole in Valley Village has been ordered to stand trial for manslaughter in the deaths of two women who tried to come to his aid, only to be electrocuted by downed power lines.
Arman Samsonian of Glendale slammed his sport utility vehicle into a light pole and nearby fire hydrant last Aug. 22. After the violent crash, two women ran toward the SUV to render aid, officials said.
Both of the would-be rescuers, Irma Zamora and Stacey Schreiber, were killed instantly when they stepped into a pool of water that had been electrified by 4,800 volts from the fallen power line.
Six others were injured when they also made contact with the water and were shocked.
On Wednesday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled that there was enough evidence for Samsonian to be tried on two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
“He was definitely driving negligently, he definitely had disregard for others,” Superior Court Judge Karen Nudell said.
She made the ruling after witnesses took the stand to relay the horrible, fast-moving events of that summer night."
Agree completely, if he was guilty of gross negligence then he's guilty of manslaughter.

I've come to the conclusion that, as I well know, teabaggers are pretty stupid. It makes sense to me that they would fck up a 501(c)3 application, they're not easy.

Hey Eman, I'm going to hound you for this for as long as I remember to do it you fck liar. Here's the post you were replying to:

That's your own inflamed stupidity. If I think you're an idiot it doesn't mean I think Obama's a saint. Obama came right out and said that unelected bureaucrats had the authority to order the execution of US citizens anywhere in the world without due process. In my opinion, he should be executed or at least tried for crimes against humanity for that.
I don't expect you to understand any of that."

I own you stupid fck, just like Lily said.

Interesting that you and one of your fellow leftists completely disagree. Galt agrees with you, but the judge does not and wants the case to move ahead.
I'm often at odds with people on the left as I try to base my opinions on rules of law, not emotions. According to the definition of manslaughter, the judge's decision to try the case has merit.

As the Deputy District Attorney argued, the driver was guilty of gross negligence and wanton disregard for others.
“Speeding down a crowded road in a lane you’re not supposed to be in is inherently dangerous.“The defendant should have foreseen the harm that could happen.”

“He was definitely driving negligently,” the judge concluded at the hearing’s end.“He had disregard for others. He made a terrible turn. That was a grossly negligent act.”

"Vehicular manslaughter committed with gross negligence without the driver being under the influence of drugs or alcohol may be punishable by a term in the county jail for not more than one year or in the case of more serious matters of a state prison term for two, four, or six years."

The law is the law. Guess we'll have to wait and see what a jury decides....sound familiar?

More Invasion of Privacy by the Obama DiKKKtatorship
The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge users' stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed.
If the government is able to determine a person's password, which is typically stored in encrypted form, the credential could be used to log in to an account to peruse confidential correspondence or even impersonate the user. Obtaining it also would aid in deciphering encrypted devices in situations where passwords are reused.
"I've certainly seen them ask for passwords," said one Internet industry source who spoke on condition of anonymity. "We push back."
A second person who has worked at a large Silicon Valley company confirmed that it received legal requests from the federal government for stored passwords. Companies "really heavily scrutinize" these requests, the person said. "There's a lot of 'over my dead body.'"
Some of the government orders demand not only a user's password but also the encryption algorithm and the so-called salt, according to a person familiar with the requests. A salt is a random string of letters or numbers used to make it more difficult to reverse the encryption process and determine the original password. Other orders demand the secret question codes often associated with user accounts.

If I were in charge, there would be black boxes installed in all automobiles that would monitor driving patterns. After a pre-established period of excessive abuse and reckless driving, the box would:
a)positively ID and electrocute the driver at the next safe parking of the vehicle
b)trigger a homing beacon
c)automatically eject the carcass onto the street for pickup by a street sweeper....:-)

The case of ‘zombie’ voters in South Carolina
“We found out that there were over 900 people who died and then subsequently voted. That number could be even higher than that.”
South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson (R), on Fox News, Jan. 12, 2012
We are going to aim the Pinocchios at Wilson. More than anyone, he hyped these charges into certified “facts,” even before any real investigation had taken place. Indeed, the miniscule percentage of alleged dead votes, out of the number cast, should have urged caution.
Instead, he went straight to the television cameras—and then his office for months bottled up the report that revealed not a single claim was true.
Apparently, officials were hoping the whole thing would remain dead and buried. But zombies have a way of coming back to life.

Used logic, pretty much. Only one of them had a fractured nose, two black eyes and was overtaken.
I also happen to believe Zimmerman was telling the truth.
If you agree with the verdict, why do you keep splitting hairs?
Are you just trying to be argumentative? Or are you bored?
Consider this: have you ever known Tenzing to NOT split hairs till his fingers bled?

All the logic he needs for his arguments can be found nestled inside of his belly button with the rest of his fuzzy logic.

Beating a dead horse is Tenzing's version of tilting at windmills.
