Heaven forbid Walker inherit fecklessly run state and take a massive deficit and turn it into a surplus. By the way, how did those recalls work out for liberals?

Now the "libertarian" Ron Paul is caught bribing.

"Former Iowa Republican official admits to taking payment for support of Ron Paul’s presidential bid
Kent Sorenson said he was paid $73,000 to switch his allegiance from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul in 2011

In this Dec. 28, 2011, file photo, Iowa State Senator Kent Sorenson speaks at a rally for Republican presidential candidate, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, at the Iowa State Fair Grounds in Des Moines, Iowa. Sorenson resigned from office Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2013, after investigator Mark Weinhardt’s report concluded Sorenson likely broke ethics rules in receiving $7,500 in monthly income from Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s, R-Minn., political action committee and presidential campaign in exchange for working as Bachmann’s state chair in 2011. The state senator received a $25,000 check from a high-ranking official in Ron Paul’s presidential campaign days before ditching Michele Bachmann to support Paul, and eventually received $73,000 in payments that may be linked to Paul’s campaign, the independent investigator has found.(AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, file)

A former Iowa state senator who abandoned then-presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to endorse Ron Paul a week before the 2012 Iowa caucuses has pleaded guilty to “concealing payments” from Paul’s campaign in exchange for his support, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday.

In December 2011, state senator Kent Sorenson, then the Iowa chairman for Bachmann’s campaign, made a surprise announcement that he had switched his endorsement to Paul. At the time, Sorenson said he made the decision based on his support for Paul’s policies, but this week he admitted to accepting tens of thousands of dollars from the Paul campaign as part of the deal. According to a DOJ release,“from October to December 2011, he met and secretly negotiated with a second political campaign to switch his support to that second campaign in exchange for concealed payments that amounted to $73,000.”

The payments were delivered in $8,000 installments, which were “concealed by transmitting them to a film production company, then through a second company, and finally to Sorenson and his spouse,” the DOJ statement read.

“An elected official admitted that he accepted under-the-table payments from a campaign committee to secure his support and services for a candidate in the 2012 presidential election,” DOJ Assistant Attorney General Caldwell said in a written statement.

Paul, a Texas Republican who retired from Congress in 2013, went on to place third in the state caucuses behind Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. He continued to campaign through the spring and ended his run in May 2012. Paul’s son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, is considering his own bid for the presidency in 2016...."

First and foremost, you're one to talk. I'm not the one who brought up Romney's pecuniary background because it's irrelevant. That's just another liberal tactic to demonize the opposition because they can't run on their records.

Secondly, I'm not sure why it's so hard for you to fathom that offshore sheltering is legal? I'm fact, I believe Bain still has numerous offshore accounts with them. Amazingly nobody including Mitt aren't in jail for that, which makes you wrong once again. Just because you don't like it doesn't make it unlawful.

That said, keep digging because that's all you're doing. What's funny is that you seem those who want to preserve the money that they make as thieving despite the fact they worked for it. Needless to say, sounds like you are the thief.

Non sequitur? Not at all, dear... you are as brothers...

"In April 1973, when revelations about Watergate began to surface, Agnew was the choice of 35 percent of Republican voters to be the next Republican nominee for President, while then-California Governor Ronald Reagan was second on the Gallup poll.

Agnew was known for his scathing criticisms of political opponents, especially journalists and anti-war activists. Emulating the "blistering blue barnacles" verbal style of Tintin's Captain Haddock with striking similarity, Agnew attacked his adversaries with relish, hurling unusual, often alliterative epithets, some of which were coined by White House speechwriters William Safire and Pat Buchanan, including "pusillanimous pussyfooters," "nattering nabobs of negativism" (written by Safire) and "hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history."[22] He once described a group of opponents as "an effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals.

During his fifth year as Vice President, late in the summer of 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney's office for the District of Maryland, on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery, and conspiracy. In October, he was charged with having accepted bribes totaling more than $100,000 while holding office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland, and Vice President of the United States. On October 10, 1973, Agnew was allowed to plead no contest to a single charge that he had failed to report $29,500 of income received in 1967, with the condition that he resign the office of Vice President. Nixon replaced him by appointing then House Minority Leader Gerald Ford to the office of Vice President."

But, really, muggles, the parallel I was looking for was scarcely mentioned... you see, Spiro recommended reading the dictionary and memorizing one new word every day..... which he would then go on to use in ponderous and awkward sentences that put your teeth on edge... you remind me so much of the poor fellow...

...and you'll notice he didn't go to jail for bribery and tax fraud either... wanna know why? Same reason your boy doesn't... yet....

Even though you attempt to appear smart you fail miserable in response and facts you are a lightweight. But you have a built in excuse you are from Texas...RIGHT.
