Convicted Lawmaker Plans Goodbye Party Before Prison Stint
POSTED: 11:40 am EST December 26, 2005
ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C. -- Former North Carolina congressman Frank Ballance is getting one more send-off before he reports to federal prison.
There's an event scheduled Wednesday in Roanoke Rapids. The invitation says donations are welcome and checks should be made payable to Ballance. He's due to report to prison on Friday to serve a four-year sentence for fraud.
Ballance pleaded guilty to funneling taxpayer money to his law firm, church and relatives. Frank Ballance and his son Garey are now listed on the Bureau of Prisons website. Both men have prison numbers, but are listed as in transit.
Garey Ballance was sentenced to six months for tax evasion.
He will be honored Wednesday at the Roanoke
That pretty much says it all. What's most pathetic about this is how stupid people are.

(11 September 2001 - Never forget)
Ballance, a Democrat from Warrenton who represented the First District of North Carolina, resigned in June 2004 for health reasons before completing his first term. He was sentenced to prison in October after pleading guilty to funneling tax dollars into his foundation and using $100,000 for himself and his family.
What?!? A DemonRAT committing a crime and going to prison? Has this been in the MSM coverage? I thought only the Bush Republican Administration was the party of corruption, and the DemonRATS were the "Truth Tellers"

(Why isn't attempting to take down a sitting Pres & his Admin considered Sedition?)
Just another democRAT who said he did nothing wrong. oh yea, that couple of million that was misdirected was his all along. Naturally he had a right to share with his son.
Only being prosecuted because he is black.
STUCK-on-STUPID for damn sure

(Born a democRAT, dad sit me free in 1952 when he said that i didn't need to be a donkey)
I thought this was a joke from the headline...
I shouldn't be surprised, but I am...at how LOW a dem will sink to suck money from their constituents...
I wonder what kind of an UPROAR there would be if Duke Cunningham did the same thing???
HINT: Most of the uproar would be from Republicans!

Well, this certainly explains how the 'rats define justice ... it means that they get our money in their pockets to use as they see fit.

"All People Who Love Freedom and Justice"
Correction: should read "All people who love freedom (from accountability,) and um, on the other hand just-us."

Someone should video tape the crowd at this event. I'll bet that would be "who's who" of political crooks. They could save it for future reference.
