And people wonder why we cant trust anyone in politics anymore. They are all there for personal gain instead of public service. You're not supposed to be able to get rich when serving the public.

typical republican behavior.......... when they think nobody is watching.

Christie and McDonnelll can have a perpetual sleep over at some penitentiary some where soon on the tax payers dime. Both have so much in common other than being elected in 2009

Communists Obama and his bigoted AG Holder could get an indictment against anyone for anything from a Grand Jury. They will have to prove something was done for the giver of gifts and loans (which were paid back with interest.) This is more Democrat grandstanding to disingenuously slander the Republicans before the upcoming 2014 elections.

Wow, more political corruption!

I am so surprised by that!

Make sure you get out there and vote. Vote for the same sociopaths to keep power.

Whether they broke laws or did not, they aggressively went after this guy for all they could get. They even asked him for $50,000 to pay off their summer home. I guess it never entered their mind that if they could not afford things, they should have not had them. And how did they pay him back if they didn't have the money to start with? Sounds to me as they were pulling a scheme, promising this guy something and not delivering. That does not make them innocent. It makes them look like idiots to keep scamming this guy. Leeches!

McDonnelll was selling his office and special favors in return for the keys to the car, and expensive shopping trips and gifts.......... Greed..........

Greed is the Republicans character trait........ He put his christian principles on the shelf to cash in on being Governor....... it's the wife who couldn't find the strength to stop........

Both, Jesse Jackson Jr. and Rod Blagojevich were both Democrats and convicted under AG Holder, no?

_Are you saying Obama should grant GOP crooks special treatment, like allowing them to share same cell for their enjoyable T-bagging experience on the tax-payer's dime?

Hmm what about the PRIVATE airplane Pelosi had to have to fly back and forth from Calif all by herself? What about Jessie Jackson's fun with the money he and his wife took. There are just as many Dems that are crooked but they LIE BETTER THAN THEGOP. Look at the lies Obama has told and Hillary - Video, and Obama knew nothing about IRS, NSA, Fast and furious until the news broke the story. Talk about a LIAR - he is first class. When his LIES do not work he just ignores the problem. Christie should do the same.
