He kept getting reelected because of his name recognition.Iowa is a conservative state.Thats why voters there recalled three of their state Supreme Court justices a couple years ago for pro gay decisions.You can count this one in the Tea Party corner.

ABCNEWS COVERUP: NO QUESTIONS TO SENATOR ON PROSTITUTES... What's new with the MSM.......Marxist Stooges & Mo Fo's.

CBSNEWS Runs Segment:'Let's Give Up On The Constitution'... Well isn't that exactly what the left has been trying till the courts just slapped Obama down for abuse of power.
