The funds raised in these FReepathons go to pay our current quarter expenses. But we're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little extra now, if we can, and the rest next quarter.

I do not see that they are complicit but they have forfeited any respect for bowing to the race card. Bonner represents my district is Alabama. He does nothing at all positive or conservation. He chaired this committee when they slapped rangel’s wrist. We never hear from him till shortly before an election. He has a massive funding edge and every political and granny in the district comes out to vote for. Reminds me of the “Johnson” in the Eddie Murphy movie.

Another demonstration of why most sensible people consider politicians to be lower than whale poop with the ethics of a muslim homo molester of baby goats.

The attorney that requested the Republicans to recuse themselves is Billy Martin a high powered attorney who handled Micheal Vick’s case as well as a lot of politicans. His law firm donated heavily to the Democrats and out of 15+ pages of donations on Open Secrets you can just aboutcount the Republican donations on 1 hand. Here is a short article on his appointment to investigate if there was a problem of bias in the committee.http://sfbayview.com/2011/the-maxine-waters-story/

I assume his appointment was to insulate the committee from charges of racism if the outside counsel found no bias and thought they should go forward against Maxine Waters. The “unbiased” media watch dog CREW (Yes, I’m being sarcastic about the unbiased comment) likes him http://www.citizensforethics.org/press/entry/crew-applauds-appointment-billy-martin

Since the Dems exect the committee chair had all resigned perhaps the recomendation to recuse was so that all parties would be at the same place to reexamine the case against her. Have no fear if she’s in danger the cry of racism will be raised.
