Reminds me of Thaddeus McCotter(R) who cost us $600,000 when he didn't finish the last few weeks of his term.

Sho nuff buckwheat. It is all those clowns want. Milk us for as long as they can and then take their golden parachute and life time income of 100% salary and go to another power job as a lobbiest, President of a University or another cush job. That's why we in America have a cliff coming and the drama club could care less.

I still chuckle at the thought of all the idiots who threw money at Sarah Palin to run for President. And she returned the favor by not running. If anyone could write a book about making money off of stupid people, that would be Sarah Palin. In fact, she should. Then sell it to her donators.

Al West wants another election. And when he loses that one, he wants another. And another - eventually, he'll win one.

Did you call Weiner and Jesse Jr. to chastise them for costing the states more money?

Jo Ann Emerson is from MARYLAND. She was an Insurance lobbyist in D.C. when she started whoring around with Bill Emerson, who was a lobbyist and married.
Emersons wife was hospitalized, in serious, life threatening condition, when he left his wife for Jo Ann.
In 1980, the Republicans wanted Emerson, who had grown up just south of St. Louis, to run for the 10th Congressional district.
Bill Emerson used HIS MOM's address as his legal district residence. So, that motherphucker, and Jo Ann, NEVER lived in the district.
When the 10th District became the 8th District, Emerson ripped his aged mom from her home in Jefferson county, Missouri, which was NOT in the new 8th District and moved her to Cape Girardeau, MO, where she knew no one. Again, Bill Emerson and Jo Ann Emerson used HIS MOM's ADDRESS as his legal district address.
When Bill died in 1996, Jo Ann Emerson could not wait to get his mom packed off to a nursing home. Then, she came by a house on Themis Street, in a very old, deteriorating neighborhood, and claimed that as her legal address.
The reason that we know that it is on Themis Street, is because her Demcorat Union Lobbyist husband, used that address when he and Emerson gave the 2008 OBOMBA Campaign... somewhere over $2,500.
Elections have consequences……….

__________
Senate Dems defend administration's right to take guns away from veterans... Libs are always trying to disarm America.
__________
OBAMA:'America is Poised to Take Off'... Yes, the cliff. Obama’s driving. He owns it.
__________
Leading House Dem wants Medicare, Social Security benefit cuts on the table...Gosh, libs can’t wait for the death panels to do their job for them.

Yeah, I know junior resigned.

But, he WON his election - Al West LOST his election. Not only did Al lose, he lost to a 20-something kid. That's how bad the voters of FL-18 wanted to ditch that chump.

You have some reading comprehension issues there boy.
