I knew all these things about Murtha but Michelle Malkin has a way with words. And what is wrong with the people of his district electing him 19 times. I guess they are just as corrupt as he was. Rot in hell.
What can you expect from a bunch of “racist rednecks?” /s
I would say some people on this thread share your sentiments.
(former Rep. Harold Ford Jr.)....
I like the sound of this phrase though....former...
“Murtha” should be a new word for scum.
A nicety long ago killed by the Left.
Murtha's a turd.
What do ya do with turds?
Ya bury them an' ya forget them.
I’m glad somebody said it. Thank you, Michelle.
(From Murtha’s Wiki page)
In 1980, during his fourth term as a Congressman, Murtha became embroiled in the Abscam investigation, which targeted dozens of congressmen. The investigation entailed FBI operatives posing as intermediaries for Saudi nationals hoping to bribe their way through the immigration process into the United States. Murtha met with these operatives and was videotaped. He did agree to testify against Frank Thompson (D-NJ) and John Murphy (D-NY), the two Congressmen mentioned as participants in the deal at the same meeting and who were later videotaped placing the cash bribes in their trousers. The FBI videotaped Murtha responding to an offer of $50,000, with Murtha saying, “I’m not interested... at this point. [If] we do business for a while, maybe I’ll be interested, maybe I won’t”, right after Murtha had offered to provide names of businesses and banks in his district where money could be invested legally. The U.S. Attorney’s Office reasoned that Murtha’s intent was to obtain investment in his district. Full length viewing of the tape shows Murtha citing prospective investment opportunities that could return “500 or 1000” miners to work.
Also, from same source
Murtha was targeted by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington as one of the 20 most corrupt members of Congress.
Am I the only one who thinks the ‘botched’ surgery may not have been an accident?
Does that include the me’s who HOPE the botchulism wasn’t an accident?
The fawning eulogies of this guy sickened me. Good riddance. He will not be missed except by his partners in corruption.
Our house has to be cleaned up before we can truly move forward.
Wesley Clark made Murtha look like a patriot.
What does it say for Murtha’s constituents that they kept electing a known crook?
Agree...and Peter Pace made Wesley Clark look like Carol Channing.
Junior Ford may have to run 3rd party. I can’t see him winning the Dem nomination, he’s got too much baggage. He’s even been exposed as still NOT being a resident of NY in order to avoid their high income taxes. How like a rodent. If we get a decent GOP candidate, if Ford and Gillibrand split the far left vote, we can get a plurality win.
