Are all Republican Candidates criminals or are they just stupid?

Republican Vermont State Senate Candidate Patricia Blair use to transport UCS clients in a vehicle that was not inspected by a registered state inspection station for safety equipment failures.

She should have been fired for that one.

Now she wants to become a state senator so she can draft laws to combat people like Gibbs and herself.

Where does it stop? At the voting booth on Tuesday November 2, 2010.

Probably the same reason a request was denied by Vermont State Police to release video of Republican State Auditor Tom Salmon driving a 2008 Honda Civic and failed to use a turn signal then being stopped for drunken driving then being arrested, handcuffed and placed into a Vermont State Police cruiser? Republican State Auditor Tom Salmon pleaded guilty to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and paid a $500 fine and $376 in court costs. This one is a criminal with a running record. Think it stopped him? Not a chance. Sorry no apologies accepted. See you at the voting booth on Tuesday November 2, 2010.

Wrong again Bryce? Wrong about what?

Patricia Blair's own words!

Are you trying to get us to believe after all the facts which have been presented that the van Patricia Blair was driving was safety inspected and had a valid inspection sticker on it on the night of the accident? Sorry but it's you who are WRONG!

My vote counts and I hope to see you all at the voting booth on Tuesday November 2, 2010.

Vote NO to criminals in government!

Government IS criminals. It's time for NEW government, but that's not gonna happen because the Democratic and Republican parties have the public hoodwinked into this us vs. them circus.

Could not agree more. Both parties have a lot to answer for. If a person breaks the law, then they should suffer the consequences. We, voters, have to make a dedicated effort to use our vote and keep using it until they get the message. If our representatives are not representing us-then vote them out and try again, if the new one doesn't do the right thing, then vote them out next election and keep repeating until they get it.

Ok how about that crook Murphy you supported who amongst other things was using official resources for campaign activities? Never proven right? CREW has him on their list of the most corrupt members of Congress. You support him? Figures. Let me guess, you guys work out and golf together right? Hopefully he will get what he deserves and Connolly will kick his sass out of there this year.

Take a trip up to Montpelier sometime and watch what goes on, you'll get it then. Neither party has clean hands!

Thanks for nothing Susan Wells. I asked two simple questions and you didn't even attempt to answer either of them. I'll ask again. Both parties have a lot to answer for? Please explain what you are insinuating? Are you really Republican State Senate Candidate Patricia Blair? You sound just like her. Complaining about everything going on up there and embarrassing yourselves when neither of you can come up with a fix for something that isn't even broken. If you have something real to say just say it otherwise take your innuendos and stuff em up the stink ville where they came from.

That would be like touring the sausage factory. You really don't want to see what happens, because it will just make you sick to your stomach.

I have seen the legislature in action as well as the workings of a sausage factory. Both are nauseating, but the sausage factory is easier to take because they are not stealing from me.
