One down. Many more to go.
A Democrat, convicted and sentenced? There must be some mistake, oh, it’s AP. I’ll need a couple of more sources.
For real. No mention of party affiliation.
Add another to the Kwame list.
The Tennessean is reporting “5 years on other charges” for a total of 19 years.
we should keep track of AP whether or not they post party affiliation! I bet you always see it in the (R)..or spelled out Republican
Which Section, which page will this be found in the NYT?
There are at least three Fords in jail, maybe more, I lost count after awhile.
When they get five Fords in jail, they can open a dealership. ;-)
NEXT DEM, STEP ON UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gee, no mention of political affiliation.
I wonder which party a Memphis Ford would belong to.
I notice the word “Democrat” is not prominent.
Glad you also noticed that the AP left out his party affiliation. This is a standard practice of AP, to either leave out the party affiliation if someone is a Democrat, or bury it so deep in the story that you need oxygen to read it.
AP - Always Propaganda, Always Partisan
Not just any dem....but a vaunted FORD family member, who usually wear more teflon than slick willie, and BHO combined here in Memphis, TN. This is FORMER US rep harold ford, JR, uncle...his dad beat the system when he got caught with fingers in the cookie jar.
wELL, hELL. Just what do we expect of them? More importantly, how long will we put up with it?
That would be "Uncle", not "Daddy".
Harold Ford's daddy is Harold Ford, Sr. In 1993, he was aquitted of 18 counts of conspiracy, bank fraud, and mail fraud. It was his second trial, the first, in 1990, having ended in a hung jury (8 to 4 for aquittal).
