If SENATURD TED STEVENS REPUBLICANT of ALASKA is guilty of any of these 7 indictments of the DOJ - he should be held responsible. If these means 'censure' or removal from the UNITED STATES SENATE - so be it. Beware DEMBHOLE SENATURD HARRY'bought-and-paid-for-the- Vegas-mob'REID, and DEMBHOLE SENATURD CHRIS'my-father-was-a-theif-so -am-i'DODD - both your times are coming!!!

Yes, there are crooks on both sides of the aisle in Congress, but it is the Republican Party that claims to be the party of law and order and family values. Hey GOP, what's that smell?

And we will never know the true extent of his corruption in 6 terms, greed and politics, like white on rice. They should take his house away and make it an aids clinic.

You are right, there are crooks on both side, but the Democrats won't do anything about Rep. Jefferson who was caught taking bribes, and they found $100,000 cash in his freezer. Their excuse is that his freezer was off limits to the investigation, so you can't have it both ways. Regardless of party, they should lose their job, pension, and do jail time if the crime warrants it.

TERM LIMITS, TERM LIMITS, TERM LIMITS. enuf said. This guy has made a lifetime career out of being a politician. Term limits prevents this sort of corruption from ever taking root, since there is not enough time to establish these crooked 'scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours.." garbage.

Henry Cisneros
Former secretary, H.U.D.(1993 to 1997); former Countrywide director (2001 to 2007)

Dodd and Conrad were integral in the housing bill passed today written by Bank of America owners of Countrywide that will cost the taxpayers close to $1 Trillion if not more.

As a matter of fact it DOES matter what party he belongs to.

See, the GOP have this amazing way of trying to come across as the party of morals and values.

Yet there have been more scandals with them involving gifts, bribes, graft and even being qu3er than any party at any time.

So while a coke head alcoholic from Texas decideds what is morally right for our country, honest people with brains will decide for themselves and vote accordingly.

Divorce, ho m o $ exuality, corruption and a war that has cost hundreds of thousands of lives...all courtesy of the party of "family values" (whatever the h3ll THAT means)!
