That would be great. Back atcha.
do democrats with their zippers down,
Maybe it’s to do with MR Hampton. hmmmm?
Glory be and on Good Friday no less. Good to see this sleaze gone. Nothing worse than a hypocrite no matter the party. Family values????? Huh! Nothing worse than cheaters in my book and then paying her off was the worst of all. Donors basically paid for him to have sex.....how gross. Anyway now who on Earth could take his place. Hopefully a true family person with real values and complete conservative as well. Yes very difficult to find these days.....Another one who needs to leave is that dastardly Vitter who was just reelected. Sad that Republicans are as bad as Democrats in this area.
Importantly, the governor of Nevada is Republican, as is the State senate. However, is Brian Sandoval, the governor, a conservative?
It is all for the better he step down now as the scandal would make him vulnerable in 2012. Now at least the Republican governor can give the Republicans a leg up in the race by appointing a Republican that will not have the liability of a scandal to answer to in 2012.
“Sharon Angle, call for you on line one”.
Don’t count on it.
Sandoval is a broken glass Republican, no doubt about his bonifides.
The jacka** Knows he is toast for a lot of reasons, most of which we will never know about. A few years ago I was an ardent supporter his, but when he turned out to be just another Damn RINO with 0 morals I disowned him as fast as I could.
That would be great! I can see her on her first day in the Senate. “Hi, Harry!”
I don’t really care what party he is from...
He should be stripped of all retirement benefits..
guys that want to play house on the side, need to remove them selves from office, there is NO Pride, Class, Dignity, Respect or Honor in our elected officials any more...look at what we have in the White House!!!
Good news. Is Heck getting the interim appointment?
HARRY REID CLONE........
