Skip to comments.Former Time Reporter Says RNC Strip-Club Bill Somehow Worse Than Illegal Straw Donations.
Posted on 04/04/2010 1:15:08 PM PDT by Randy Larsen
Former Time White House correspondent (and Carter administration appointee) Margaret Carlson really wants RNC chairman Michael Steele fired. In her Bloomberg News column on Wednesday, she badly exaggerated: "In the world of fundraising scandals, this one makes former Vice President Al Gores visit to a Buddhist temple look as quaint as tea at Buckingham Palace."

Margaret Carlson is probably jealous that some Republican gals got to go to a Lesbian Themed Hollywood bar, and she didn’t.
I don't buy that.
I don't buy that.
Agree, Maggie, you are yelling FIRE in a not so crowded theatre.
Ha! Most of the rest of us want him fired too, along with the rest of the RNC clowns. Donate to individual Republicans, not the RNC.
broken clock, although right for the wrong reason
I'm glad you brought that up, Margaret. That was a really bad infraction by the VP of the United States, wasn't it? But if I recall correctly, there was "no controlling precedent." Good thing for Al Gore, because if there had been, he'd probably still be in jail.
She wants to cover the fact that this is the most corrupt Congress in American history.
Yup, they need to change the subject and keep the focus off what a pos obammy and his handlers are.
Where were these “journalists” when obammy was taking in millions through prepaid credit cards?
“(page 148): Still, Nina Burleigh, Carole Simpson and even my ex-colleague Leslie Stahl all take a backseat when it comes to painting Hillarys toenails. They are all runners-up in the How May I Serve You, My Queen? Sweepstakes. Because none of themnot even Newsweek contributing editor Eleanor Rodham Cliftcan rival Margaret Carlson, who does commentary for TIME magazine (and is a regular on CNNs Capital Gang) for sheer devotion to Ms. Hillary. If they gave out Nobel Prizes for Hillary-gushing, Margaret Carlson would be on her way to Stockholm”
As much as we try to think otherwise, when youre covering someone like yourself, and your position in life is insecure, shes your mascot. Something in you roots for her. Youre rooting for your team. I try to get that bias out, but for many of us its there.

She must be really stupid. If Steele gets fired they might find someone more effective.
We have lost our national sense of perspective for at least two reasons: (1) The mainstream media has abandoned any shred of objectivity and has become a cheerleader for liberalism (and now socialism). (2) The public schools have become the liberals’ tool for the advancement of their causes. Those two factors have left us with a public incapable of sorting out the facts and issues.
[Taiwan-born Maria Hsia . . .long time fund raiser for Al Gore. . .and business associate of John Huang and James Riady since 1988, facilitated $100,000 in illegal campaign contributions through her efforts at Hsi Lai Temple, a Chinese Buddhist temple in Hacienda Heights, California. This money went to the DNC, to the Clinton - Gore campaign, and to Patrick Kennedy. After a trial, she was convicted in March 2000. . .((The DNC)eventually returned the money donated by the Temple’s monks and nuns. Twelve nuns and employees of the temple, including the temple’s abbess, refused to answer questions by pleading the Fifth. . . Two other Buddhist nuns admitted destroying lists of donors and other documents related to the controversy. . .A Temple-commissioned videotape of the fund raiser also went missing and the nuns’ attorney claimed it may have been shipped off to Taiwan. . .]
“I did not know that it was a fund-raiser. But I knew it was a political event, and I knew there were finance people that were going to be present, and so that alone should have told me, ‘This is inappropriate and this is a mistake; don’t do this.’ And I take responsibility for that. It was a mistake.” Vice President Al Gore on NBC TV’s Today show, Jan. 24, 1997
HUANG WAS ONE OF SEVERAL DNC “FUNDRAISERS” IDENTIFIED AS AN AGENT OF COMMUNIST CHINA. THE LAUNDERED CAMPAIGN CASH WAS INTENDED TO AFFECT THE 1996 ELECTION AND BUY FAVORS FROM THE ADMINISTRATION SUCH AS CLASSIFIED TECHNOLOGY. JOHN KERRY AND TOM DASCHLE BOTH WERE FORCED TO RETURN TAINTED CONTRIBUTIONS. THE HOUSE INVESTIGATION PROBABLY ONLY EXPOSED THE TIP OF A MASSIVE OPERATION INVOLVING ESPIONAGE, BRIBERY AND TREASON. “JOURNALISTS” LIKE CARLSON ARE EQUALLY CORRUPT.
I’d like to see Steele fired as well, but for different reasons.
Amen—how Reno never got around to indicting Gore, I’ll never understand.
Surely, you jest.
Liberals simply don't indict other liberals.
