Where else can you break the law, resign as if nothing happened, and STILL keep the goodies that the average American will never see?
The son-of-a-bitch should be stripped of everything, thrown in prison for 25 years with no possibility of parole.
But, as usual, Congress always protects their own and we allow the bastards to get away with it.
The question is how do we stop members of congress from receiving any pension at all. The idea that because they were members of congress, they DESERVE money for the rest of their lives is ridiculous. These people work for us. Look at members net worth when they are first elected into congress and what it is when they retire. These is so much corruption.
