That's funny...Except that it is stupid.
The Governor is being exposed for what he is. Now his son , the elitist rich frat boy, is getting caught being his true self.
It is one thing to work the system as a politician, quite another for personal wealth.

The real answer here to clean the system up is not to go after the puppet politician in question. No indeed. Rather, in this case, force the donor, in this case Star Scientific, to donate a like amount to the other political party! Just think how quickly the behind the scenes gifts would dry up for both sides and the system would start to become even handed. Don't anybody kid themselves for a second here. Democrats do the same type of antics everyday and the attitude of both groups is "anythig is legal as long as you don't get caught" which means somebody ratting the culprit out one way or the other. Why not offer tax free rewards to those that rat out "gifts" etcetera to politicians of any label?

Governor McDonnell is a sleazeball crook who took bribes and has his friend, Attorney General Cuccinelli, refuse to investigate. These two lowlifes deserve some time in prison to think about what it means to hold public office in America.

I look forward to their trials.

Yes, Obama made McDonnell accept gifts and told him not to disclose it. How silly of the democrats or anyone else is to place blame at McDonnell's feet, when it was clearly Obama that made him do it.

All political crooks, regardless of party, need to be weeded out and punished. To serve the public, there are rules that one must follow. When you break those rules, you have broken the public's trust and our laws and need to be punished.

Also, I'm tired of men like McDonnell and Cuccinelli embarrassing the good people of the Commonwealth. We are not rubes in a backwater and do not deserve to be portrayed or treated as such.

Where is the coverage of the "great administration" in DC? Anything Gov. McDonnell could do pales in comparison to that bunch in Washington in the white house. Let's tell the public about what is going on the white house.

Are you trying to change the subject? It appears that you are suggesting that corruption at the state level is justified because you allege that corruption at the federal level is worse. Is that what you're suggesting?

I doubt it.

Really, she's suggestng that corruption by Republicans is justified because she alleges that corruption among Democrats is worse.
