Nothing will happen to her; she'll be re-elected by her constituents.

Did you notice in the lead paragraph it didn't say Dem.

But if it had been a GOPer it sure would of.

All Demorats are taught to intimidate people to vote for them. They cannot win on their own merit. One her aides said she'd rather be fighting in the Middle East than work for her.

She can find a new home in the BHO administration. He is a duck and cover mode Richardson's story may keep light away from the dead Ambassador.
Which is looking like a set up,'the diplomat who knew too much.'

LOL Absolutely! It would have been mentioned several times and the headline would read REPUBLICAN CONGRESSWOMAN ACCUSED!

The rules have been changed for democrates, you
know that as well as the whole world DOES!

Just look and listen to all the women that have been
out telling you the lies you are supposed to believe as to what has happened.
Who knew these broads and will remember anything
they have done to cover for the government.

Cutting our military is what you and your government is waiting for. Wait for your
turn.....I can't hardly wait......You deserve
what you have done for this president...Big

The DNC has a calculation for winning that is about, burn out and media overload. In all fairness, I wish TRUTH was all that mattered. If the target audience gets the majority of its 'truth' from the Comedy Chanel, they must be identified as a 'laugh line'.

What another great piece of work.
The DemocRats have a who's who of who should be in the federal pen. I'm sure she is just another hard working victim of a great right wing conspiracy...

Oh pipe down! Richardson is the very very bottom of the American food chain. She is ONLY a California Democrat.

Calif Democrats make a game of picking people with Zero skills who most Democrat in other States wouldn't trust to flip burgers in a greasy spoon. But they are plenty good enough to "represent' Calif Dems their families.

Richardson represents today's LoserCrat version of the bottom feeders of the Democratic Party. The least among us.

I worked for a politician 30 years ago and I can honestly say that ALL politicians of both parties do this. In my case I was required to buy a certain amount of fundraiser tickets every year and work on some campaigns. Fortunately I left government for the real world where hard work is rewarded and promotions are not based on skin color or sex but ability. Most of these bastards are too busy running for re election to pay attention to the real problems facing the nation!

Richardson is hilarious. When the State Democratic Party ran her for Congress she had already been judged the MOST unethical member of the State Legislature. You really can't imagine what a pathetic bunch of losers, illegals, and gangsters live in CA these days.

The Beach Boy days are long long gone. It's pathetic.
Most every one is just waiting for their huge pension (which the State can't afford!) so they can get the hell out. The Public Employee mostly UNFUNDED Pensions are the highest in World History. Nice legacy to leave to their kids....yikes.
