Wait wha???? Where are all the haters and hateful posts about Democratic exceptionalism? Where are all the "typical Democratic morals shine through!" posts? Odd, hate and over the top stereotyping is only reserved for Republicans it seems. Double standard is double stupid.

Hopefully this guy gets the help he needs.

Like father, like son, I guess...

"Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's 21-year-old son Sean was arrested Saturday and charged with public swearing and intoxication, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

McDonnell was arrested in Charlottesville. He is scheduled to appear in court on August 12.

In an email to CBS 6, a spokesperson for McDonnell said the GOP governor and his family are aware of the situation.

“This is a personal matter and is being addressed by the family,” said Tucker Martin, spokesperson for McDonnell."

OF COURSE: here would be the difference...

"Former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were charged Tuesday with illegally accepting gifts, luxury vacations and large loans from a wealthy Richmond area businessman who sought special treatment from state government.

Authorities allege that for nearly two years, the McDonnells repeatedly asked executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. for loans and gifts of money, clothes, golf fees and equipment, trips, and private plane rides. The gifts and loans totaled at least $165,000.

In exchange, authorities allege, the McDonnells worked in concert to lend the prestige of the governor’s office to Williams’s struggling company, Star Scientific, a former small cigarette manufacturer that now sells dietary supplements.

McDonnell, 59, is the first governor ever to face criminal charges in Virginia, a state that has prided itself on a history of clean and ethical politics, and the charges will probably accelerate a push for the legislature to tighten state ethics laws.

The criminal prosecution marks a stunning crash for a politician who was considered for the Republican vice presidential nomination in 2012 and who, just a year ago, was considered a credible prospective candidate for president."

You stench of politicos think you have the right to try people in the press. The foul Democrat attempt to slime the McDonnells (and thereby the Republicans) wouldn't have offered a deal to them if they had a clear cut case on the heavier charges. The politically motivated Justice Department has shown similar colors ever since Obama's first election. As it turns out, the McDonnells have character you bastards don't understand; they refused your deal to slime the GOP and both want their day in court. There, the rotten character of this administration will once again be shown, including their intentional abuse of the Grand Jury system.

Right, because people give me gifts of $165,000 all the time. I'm sure the fact that he was governor had nothing to do with it.

And they forgot the limit for gifts was $50.

This man will get the help he needs. There won't be 5 generations of dope heads in the Udall family like there are in our ghettos. There is a whole different approach to narcotics use when it is not generational.
