Gov. vaginal probe slashed the budgets in this state, told them to do more with a lot less-yet, at the same time, he & his family were living beyond their means and getting others to pay their bills. He is a first class arse.

Just because others do it doesn't make it right. If 100 people jump off a bridge doesn't mean you have to do it too. Pure nonsense-your logic escapes me.

Staff e-mails portray former Va. first lady as insecure and erratic

The messages portray the governor as willing to devote high-level staff to helping his wife cope but reluctant to delve into the problems himself.

The messages are filled with suggestions that the first lady was mentally unbalanced:“I just think she needs some crazy pills,” Kaplan writes at one point. That could help the governor argue in court that his wife was a loose cannon, working on her own to solicit gifts from Williams.

Yet the messages also indicate that the governor was aware enough of problems that he dispatched some of his most senior aides — chief of staff Martin Kent and Secretary of the Commonwealth Janet Vestal Kelly — to wade into the mansion discord.

A decision by D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier to indefinitely reassign members of the department’s Gay and Lesbian Liaison Unit to street patrol duties in the Sixth and Seventh Police Districts is hindering their ability to respond to LGBT-related calls throughout the city, according to sources familiar with the Metropolitan Police Department.

GRAY’s ANTI-LGBT SHADOW CAMPAIGN, v. 2014
There really IS something worse than anti-gay marriage bigots working in mayoral campaigns…
Vincent Gray has a anti-LGBT police chief working as the top cop of this city. Gray’s Chief of Police is now using her high office to DEMONSTRATE to MPD’s chain-of-command how police favoritism to anti-LGBT politicians (and by inference, anti-LGBT police bias) will be rewarded by the mayor’s MPD bosses.

The list seems to be endless. DC is more corrupt than Virginia...I find they are fairly equal.

Mayor Vincent Gray's personal affairs are full of hot air and corruption, and for a person who said that Ex Mayor Fenty was pandering to the DC elite, this makes his (Gray's) tenure look pathetic-maybe he's a republican in hiding

It's hard to find a politician who isn't self centered, self serving and corrupt in one way or another.

Good. What views are you starting to listen to? What exactly swayed you in that direction?

Agree on Colorado - I hope other states follow.

Ron Paul has many areas I don't like-----against gay marriage, against abortion. He has, also, made statement I find offensive. Like:

"Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro-communist philanderer, Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a congressman. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day!" (February 1990: "

"...I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in [Washington, DC] are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."

He terms himself "strongly pro-life"

"an unshakable foe of abortion", and believes regulation or ban on medical decisions about maternal or fetal health is "best handled at the state level". His abortion-related legislation, like the Sanctity of Life Act, is intended to negate Roe v. Wade and to get "the federal government completely out of the business of regulating state matters."

“I miss the closet. Homosexuals, not to speak of the rest of society, were far better off when social pressure forced them to hide their activities. They could also not be as promiscuous. Is it any coincidence that the AIDS epidemic developed after they came 'out of the closet,' and started hyper-promiscuous sodomy? I don't believe so, medically or morally.”(June 1990: "Newsletter")

“[Magic] Johnson may be a sports star, but he is dying [of AIDS] because he violated moral laws.”(December 1991:“The criminal ‘Justice’ Department wants to force dentists to treat these Darth Vader types [people with AIDS] under the vicious Americans With Disabilities Act;" and We all have the right to discriminate, which is what freedom of association is all about, especially against killers [AIDS patients].”(November 1993

There are other statements equally vile. I do agree with "some" of his beliefs but not enough of them to ever consider voting for him.

I personally just plain do not like any of the teaparty/republicans---they have the personalities of a rock.

I need to actually like a person to vote for them and agree with at least 80% of the views that spew forth from their lips.

So tired of GOP crap. How many people can really listen to their drivel any longer?

They seriously need to shut up and go away.

Never have been relevant to anyone anywhere.

This is just the tip of the iceberg and really do not to need to know more to never want to hear another word from this fake Political Party ever again.

STFU GOP!
