Typical politician refusing to comment on something that is potentially harmful to his image. Hiding behind the law and saying, "I cannot comment because this is an ongoing legal matter" won't save face. Not commenting is almost worse and facing up and answering the questions

Tell that to the Dems in Washington. It's okay for them to "not remember" or take the 5th. Same ole, same ole.

PARDON, sir or madam,

BUT Mr McDonnell has made many (more than I can remember for other governors) around the world trips, under the mission of 'promoting Virginia interests'. He has also wined and dined the movie industry which Republicans consistently call 'Hollywood types', meaning a bad name because they supposedly donate to Democrats.

Why haven't Republicans insisted that Mr McDonnell stay home in Virginia and do his work, and demanded that he stop spending uncounted Virginia dollars on wining and dining 'Hollywood types'?

Increasingly, Mr McDonnell - and his family - appear to be hogs at the public trough.

There is only one true reason any individual wants into the political game, Republican or Democrat. Take a look at any elected officials personal net worth when they first get into the game compared to their personal net worth when they leave the game. You will find the answer. Both parties spout diversion all day everyday, while they steal us blind.

"W" and Clinton both went there! You just don't like black people. Probably go to church every week, too. Disgraceful.

Just like the liberal groups on the list too!!! That big IRS scandal. Now Issa is insisting that he wasn't implying the White House was behind it.
