Skip to comments.Democratic scandals begin to erupt in W.Va., Ill. (Manchin, Jagmo Jr.)

Just what Democrats need in West Virginia: More on the federal investigation of their Senate candidate, Gov. Joe Manchin.
We now know a major target of the federal probe into Gov. Joe Manchins administration and the Department of Highways is a multi-million dollar road that runs through Fairmont.
Subpoenas have been issued to the Department of Highways and the Office of Administration The Attorney Generals office is refusing to release any information about the investigation, despite media law experts who say the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires the Attorney General to release the information
Larry Puccio, Manchins former chief of staff and current chair of the Democratic Party in West Virginia, also runs a real estate business in Fairmont. Sources believe Puccio could be part of the probe.
And just what they need in Illinois: Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., newly accused of trying to buy Obamas Senate seat.
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. directed a major political fund-raiser to offer former Gov. Rod Blagojevich millions of dollars in campaign cash in return for an appointment to the U.S. Senate, sources said the fund-raiser has told federal authorities.
The allegation by Oak Brook businessman Raghuveer Nayak counters public statements made as recently as last week by Jackson that he never authorized any deal to attempt to buy the Senate seat.
still waitin’ for Blago to publish his memoirs...
After election day, will you change your handle to “TonyInRedOhio?”
Will never make it to the lamestream media.
We have to have coverage of the O Donnell accusations, dontcha know...
Good one! I've been using that nom de guerre since joining up, back in the Twentieth Century, so I guess I'll keep it. :)
Democrats: Culture of Corruption
Yeah COD dabbled in Wiccan stuff with a high school boy for two days in high school. She needs to emphasize that she is now 41 years old. Meanwhile, the rat corruption juggernaut continues unabated but what do the slimestream media talk about? COD’s high school dalliance with Wiccans over 20 years ago.
There was an earlier thread this morning on the same subject. A “social acquaintance” of Jackson’s was mentioned. Giavanna Huidobro. Jackson flew her around. Here’s what I posted on that thread;
“Now this is INTERESTING!
I did a net search lookin for pics of Giavanna Huidobro. One site was labeled Fotos of Giovanna Huidobro. It took me to a PORN STAR site! Her pic at this articles link shows a good-looking blond. A perfect gal for Tiger Woods! Jcube, Jesse Jr, might be gettin a lot of heat at home real soon!”
Her pic is at the link in this thread;
.....and not to mention Hillary and her seances with Eleanor Roosevelt, lol!
I don’t know what a wookie is, but Manchelle is an alky.
(What’s a wookie?)
There’s a coalburner for every bro who wants one. Porn makes her more of a trophy, more of a “Look what I gots!”
not a big star wars fan eh?
“not a big star wars fan eh?
Not a big fan of Hollywood trivia or living in a movie made 35 years ago, pardon me all to hell, ROFL.
You couldn’t even have the class or courtesy to just answer my damn question, could you? You just had to ridicule someone, didn’t you? What an asshole.
I could maybe understand ridiculing another Freeper for not knowing something IMPORTANT, like what the U.S. Constitution says about this or that, but ridiculing another FReeper (or anybody, for that matter) for not knowing the name of a creature from a pop culture movie made 35 years ago is tacky, rude and childish.
I didn’t see it as ridicule, fwiw.
It’s ok.They’ll just dig up Byrd and run him again.Ala Toricelli(replace a sure loser after the deadline),Carnahan run the dead guy and appoint his wife(surprised Massachusetts didn’t to this with the Swimmer) the Democrat Crime Syndicate rolls along.
“I could maybe understand ridiculing another Freeper for not knowing something IMPORTANT...”
I don’t think it was an attack on your post at all :-)! I just think they were amused by someone not knowing what a wookie is, that’s all. I doubt they were laughing at you. I personally refer to the First Lady as a “Grue”, but I also prefer other forms of fiction ;-).
I did like your response though. I loved Star Wars, but I know of some people that live, breathe, and eat that universe up and I feel for them :-)! You would have given them a heart attack :-)!
wiw is zip. If there’d been an actual answer first, and then the comment, it wouldn’t have been ridicule/sarcastic/childish cut.
I just thought you overreacted and was trying to defuse the situation by offering an objective reaction to a rather harmless post that set you off.
Sorry to butt in to your issues. Carry on, FRiend, and best of luck!
goodness gracious!!! if THAT was ridicule, I’m afraid to ever post anything !!!!!
that didn’t even come close.... and he was kind enough to answer your question instead of just ignoring it..... you must have been having a really bad day....
I’m almost afraid to ask after the other poster got their head bitten off, but what is a grue? :)
