Anything this goof specter does any more doesn't surprise me. He has become an embarrasment to Pa. His sidekick ,Casey, is right there with him too.

How can you say that they're as different as night & day. The only similarity is they are both our elected representitives. Specter is well seasoned & Casey is learning. Spector gave his opinion as a former DA & maybe it holds some water.
When the Johnson arest came about I thought No Question he should resign in disgrace- After Specter's comments I'm not so sure- Yes I had a disturbing experience in a restroom. Someone tapped my foot! I had no idea what it ment- I started talking to myself & quickly left the facility.
As a women over 50 I was horrified when I found out the implications & feel safe having my 19 yr old son escort me to future restroom visits when we are shopping-LOL
What the heck has this world turned into?

No suprise,the illegal alien/open borders/amnesty agenda for foreign born nationals living here unlawfully is the reason.
Larry Craig,one of the most HATED politicians in Idaho is one of the only Republicans for rewarding illegal aliens.
FYI-there are already NINE visa programs,over 2 million people are made citizens of the USA each year and over 600,000 people get visas to work here each year.
Some industries,such as high tech,don't even need to prove they can't find qualified workers.They simply can petition the govt for more high tech worker visas.
Idaho also refuses to pass any sort of legislation requiring farmers to carry workmans compensation for migrant workers.
When farm workers get injured(such as one man who lost both arms and one leg in an accident) the taxpayers of that state are STUCK paying the medical bills and rehabilitation for FOREIGNERS who come here to work.
Craig is a married to a woman who has THREE adult children from a previous relationship.They aren't his kids.They're all standing before TV cameras to help make their mother look like less of an idiot for marrying Craig,who has had a long history of stories about his sexual orientation dogging him.
Craig is a big hypocrite,voting against any legislation favoring gay rights.But he sure manages to get involved in situations that generate gossip in Idaho.
Apparently.craig went Waaaay out of his way to look up this gay hook up haven in Minn.Check out flights to Idaho.There's no reason to go all the way up to Minn from Wash DC.

It figures he would speak out for one of his buddies wanting to give the country to illegals. They should both be impeached for misrepresenting the voters

Sounds like former PA Governor Tom Ridge and his boyfriend Homer Mosco. Ridge married and bought (adopted) two kids for coverage. Specter should go back to Kansas where he's from.

The entire lot should get driven out of town on a rail, they are worthless, they are there for one thing, enriching themselves. Ever notice how wealthy they all become after a period of years?
I was not surprised that Craig's "quality" friend went to bat for him, they are all alike. They all owe each other and that is a terrible way to live.

You know, politicians are human too. Just like each of us they have skeletons in the closet! The difference between the politicians and us is they are constantly in the public eye! When you are in that public eye you can't play in the filthy sandbox like you once did! People hate politicians expecially ones who try to play in dirt! Craig played in the dirt and got caught.

As for Spector, he was trying to be a friend and as a result may jeapordize his own polital standing. That took guts to go out on a limb like that! The sad thing is Spector made a statement and now refuses to back it up with the facts! This make Spector look dirty too!

Arlen Specter was, is and always will be a wishy-washy senator no matter what the issue. Whichever side will benefit him the most, that is the side he is on. He may be a Republican on the outside but he is still a die-hard Democrat on the inside. He was a die-hard Democrat when he was the DA in Phila. but switched to the Republican side when things looked so much better for him on that side. He is in there for whatever he can get out of it and nothing more. We need him in the Senate like we need a malignant brain tumor. I can't stand the guy.

NOW EVERY TIME I GO INTO A PUBLIC RESTROOM I THINK AND FEAR "REPUBLICANS".
YESTERDAY I WAS AT HOME DEPO AND SUDDENLY HAD TO TAKE A MASSIVE DUMP. NO CHOICE; RUN TO THE BATHROOM AND INTO A STALL BEFORE I ALMOST LOST IT INTO MY TIGHTIE WHITTIES. THEN I REALIZED THAT THERE WERE MEN IN BOTH ADJOINING STALLS. OH NO, I ALMOST PANICKED!!! SURROUNDED BY REPUBLICANS. WOULD I BE GANG RAPED BY THEM??? IN A MEEK VOICE I ASKED MY STALL-MATE NEIGHBOR. "ARE YOU A REPUBLICAN?" HE ANSWERED YES WITH AN EVIL CHUCKLE. I TOLD HIM I HAD SHOOTING DIARIA (HOPING THIS WOULD TURN HIM OFF). NO SUCH LUCK. HE SAID, "YOU KNOW WE REPUBLICANS LOVE IT DOWN AND DIRTY". I WIPED AS FAST AS I COULD AND RAN OUT OF THERE SCREAMING. ALL I CAN SAY IS DON'T USE PUBLIC RESTROOMS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GET INVOLVED WITH REPUBLICANS
OMG, that is too funny

Casey was part of the money tree
Specter's involvement had a motivation I don't understand yet. But, he is a player and the price is on the table.
