The man is a disgrace. It's about time charges were filed, now let's hope he doesn't buy his way out of it.

There is a lot more where that came , these "lifers" are all corrupt and you as a citizen are wondering "what the hell are you thinking"? I have one governor, two senators and quite a few congresspeople I wouldn't mind if they disappear.

I would really like to see a term limit placed on Congressman, just as we have on presidents. Some of these people have never done anything in their lives, except "serve the people," as they say it. Is it really that or serve themselves? I believe it may be the latter. And, please, don't think I am picking on Alaska -- it is prevalent in Texas, my home state, and on many other states, including New Mexico, where I previously lived. Please join me, and let us get some action going for Congressional term limits.

You are quite right about term limits. Please sign the brand new U.S. Term Limits petition at www.termlimits.org and pass around the link. Thanks.-pb
