The Culture of Corruption is still going strong

Two shining examples of the democrats Culture of Corruption for your reading pleasure.

First, former Senator John Edwards. You remember Edwards, served less than one term in the Senate before he quit going to work (but he still collected his taxpayer funded paycheck) to mount a failed run for the President’s office. That resulted in him being picked by the admitted war criminal, Senator John Kerry, as his VP running mate. After helping Kerry lose that election, Edwards ran for President again. He lost early and by wide margins that time as well.

During that second run, Edwards, who often ran with with Cancer Stricken wife Elizabeth by his side, also picked up a mistress and a kid.

Now his marriage and his mistress really isn’t much of a political story. After Billy Jeff Clinton and Jesse Jackson, a mistress or two is almost required for a serious democrat. Not a corruption story, but one of moral failing.

Where the corruption comes in is if Edwards spent campaign money to Rielle Hunter to keep her quiet about their relationship. Well, the feds are now investigating the matter.

Culture of Corruption, Part 2, involves democrat congressman John Murtha. Yes, Murtha of Pork Spending fame. According the the Washington Post, a company owned by Murtha’s nephew received “$4 million in Pentagon work, all of it without competition…” Isn’t that just special.

HT to Michelle Malkin about this latest bit of Murtha Pork.

ACORN = Voter Fraud

ACORN, the leftist group that our Dear Leader wants “counting” people in the census is in the news again. This time, like most times, it’s for voter fraud. ACORN in Nevada was paying bonuses for voter registrations, including fraudulent ones.

Update: From Gateway Pundit, news video on the charges.

19,000 fraudulent voter registration forms submitted by ACORN in Nevada alone. How many more didn’t get detected? Remember that this is the same group that the White House wants counting heads in the census. Do you really want a far left extremist group known for widespread voter fraud determining the number of congressional seats and electoral college votes a state will receive?

Gateway Pundit also has details on the close association between ACORN and our Dear Leader.
