Betrayed.

I almost hate to post this after yesterday’s post about hippies and bible-thumpers… but this bit of news is so disturbing… Greed is gonna take this country down.

Rep. Cunningham Pleads Guilty to Bribery, Resigns

SAN DIEGO — A tearful, trembling Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R-Rancho Santa Fe) resigned Monday after pleading guilty to receiving $2.4 million in bribes from military contractors and evading more than $1 million in taxes. MORE….

and in case you’re not familiar with my representative…. here’s a nice little story about him:

***************************************************

I feel betrayed, and I didn’t even vote for him… I imagine those folks who voted for him feel the same way I felt when I found out Clinton had sex in the Oval Office with an intern! disgusted. outraged. betrayed. That he would be so disrespectful of the office to which he was elected, and would trade in the respect of his constituency for [ ] a piece of ass or [ ] a mansion and a Rolls Royce … not sure which is worse.

What Cunningham will forfeit with his plea bargain deal: More than $1.8 million in cash, his interest in his Rancho Santa Fe home and more than a dozen antiques, pieces of furniture and rugs.

Don’t feel too sorry for the tearful trembling old guy though. His retirement salary from the Navy –probably about 5K a month– will do him just fine. Not to mention some sort of pension from Congress.

and Word UP Dems… let he who is without sin cast the first stone and all that… you need to stop the finger pointing and start coming up with a VISION. Folks want to be FOR something, not just against the other guy.

One thought on “Betrayed.

  1. The thing about posting such different stories and feelings one day after the other is really a testament to how diverse our world is and how all shades of things reside with each other at once – and it’s still a beautiful world. It seems like political corruption is so rampant that there are hardly any true and honest people in office out there. Kind of makes me think voting and believing in representatives is a sham and a waste of time. And yet, I can’t imagine not. Believing in a better world is what keeps me going.xo leahpeah
