So, what happens when you’re a Republican Senator and you get caught making false statements about gifts you accepted from constituents? Well, if you’re Duke Cunningham, you go to prison. If you’re Ted Stevens, you lose your Senate seat. And once that has been accomplished, the case against you is dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct.
But what happens if you’re a Democrat Senator who gets gifts from Countrywide mortgage and AIG, and return, writes legislation they directly benefit from? Nothing, that’s what happens.
What happens if you’re the Democrat Chairman of the House Committee that writes tax law, and you get caught not paying your taxes? Nothing, that’s what happens.
What happens if you’re the Democrat Chairman of the House Banking Committee and you spent years fighting against regulating an industry your boyfriend was a key executive in? Nothing, that’s what happens.
What happens if the Democrat President nominates you for Treasury Secretary (the guy in charge of the IRS), and you get caught not paying your taxes? You get confirmed, and your power is continually expanded.
What happens if you’re the Democrat Governor of Kansas, and you get caught cheating on your taxes? You get named to be Secretary of Health and Human Services.
What happens if the adult daughter of the Democrat vice president is videotaped snorting coke, or the adult son of a Democrat Vice president is busted for drug possession? The MSM suddenly decide that the “children” of politicians are off-limits. Sorry, Bristol, Jenna, and Barbara.
Yeah, the rules for Democrats are just different… for some reason.
