He should do the full three years, it takes time for people to learn their lesson. Lawmakers are no different than a common person when they break the law. Why did he only get a mere three years? he needs to do his time, a full three years or it would look like his friends were helping him out- he could do another year standing on his head- he can do it.

I agree, what he did was a serious crime, taking money and bribes and he was a LAWMAKER! he should have done 6 years and now he's crying like a little bitch wanting out of prison. No! he should consider himself lucky and do the other year. It takes at least four years in prison to change someone. That is with intense therapy and programs, our tax dollars are paying for his rehabilitation- I'll gladly pay my share. Let him do another year - he could do that standing on his head. Let him do it. What's good for the COMMON PERSON is good for the LAWMAKER . One thing that pisses me off is injustice. If the common person can eat cake (Marie Antoinette) so can the lawmaker.

After a mere two years what do you think he's learned? not to get caught? let him do another year- he can be an example to his other wannabe's, are you a friend of his?
