I'm actually kinda shocked that Brown, Marxist, Ohio voted guilty.

Laughed at the 'not guilty' gang. :)

I guess if your last name ends in “in” or “en” you were likely to vote against it.

In the opening hearing, House investigators said Porteous had racked up more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos.

Two New Orleans attorneys who once worked with Porteous said they gave the judge at least $20,000 in cash gifts while he was a judge, including $2,000 stuffed in an envelope in 1999, just before Porteous decided a major civil case in their client’s favor.

After they complained to Porteous about his frequent solicitations for cash and threatened to cut him off, the attorneys said, Porteous began sending court-appointed work to their firm. In return, the attorneys sent some of the fees they received to the judge.

At another hearing, the lawyer Porteous hired for his 2001 bankruptcy discussed how he and Porteous initially filed the judge’s bankruptcy under the name “Orteous,” with a hastily arranged post office box as his address, to keep his name out of the newspaper. House investigators said Porteous also lied about his debts and assets in an effort to lower his bankruptcy payments.

Later, New Orleans bail bondsman Louis Marcotte testified that he and Porteous had a long-standing relationship in which Marcotte routinely took Porteous to lavish meals at French Quarter restaurants and offered his employees to work on Porteous’ cars and home. In return, Porteous manipulated bond amounts for defendants to give Marcotte the highest fees possible, said Marcotte, who served 18 months in prison on related corruption charges.

Porteous also erased criminal convictions for two of Marcotte’s employees.

“I knew he was struggling ... he would have five, six Absolut (vodka) and tonics” at lunch, Marcotte testified. “I asked him for things and he asked me for things.”

Interesting catch on the “in”—4 of the 6 went not guilty, with Feinstein and Manichin being the odd ones out. What, if anything, does this “in”dicate

Think he’s the Federal judge who was taking bribes and kickbacks from attorneys.
