WHICH FREEPER HAS THE MOST CORRUPT STATE?
10/18/ 02

Posted on 10/18/2002 4:42:56 PM PDT by Libloather

The *Crintons supposedly come from Arkansas. They get a head start.

Wisconsin is still dusting off felonies that haven't been seen in decades.

Cally gets even closer to the Chicoms - just because of the earthquakes.

New Joisey? Fegedaboudid...

The *Crintons supposedly come from New York. Uh, oh.

Here in North Carolina, the Gubna used up state funds to cover his goofs. He still uses the $2000.00 per-hour (taxpayer funded) helicopter to reach his beach house on the weekends.

And Carolina may have the only Senate candidate being sued. RAT, Erskine Bowles was added to a Connecticut lawsuit to recover more than $120 million in lost pension funds.

I do. The People's Republic of Maryland.

Parris the First was shacking up w/ somebody on the state payroll. He managed to get her salary increased by 40% and then divorced his wife (in 1 day, anybody else has to wait a year here) and married his now-preggers honey.

When he became guvnah, he tried to rig the state pension system to begin paying him immediately because he "retired" from being Prince George's Executive.

Shall I go on?

Here in Californicate we have Grayout Doofus and the DemocRATS in the Upper house of the state senate. Doofus has sold a whole bunch of state committee positions to the highest contributors to his campaign.

Not sure if we are the most corrupt, but it sure stinks....

It's going to be a state controlled by Democrats. Just a hunch.

And "Taxachusetts" has the distinction of housing the Kennedy Spawn that oozes out and takes over surrounding states like Patches in RI.

I'm from New Jersey. Every single person in this state is corrupt. The governor, our senators, the Democrats, the Republicans, the Greens, the Libertarians.

The birds sing stolen songs, the dogs dig up each other's bones, and the infants want hugs so they can lift your wallet.

I live in Ct but I gotta admit you'd have to a ways to find a state more corrupt than Rhode Island. The state is run by a democrat machine that is simply lawless.

The Mayor of Providence, Cianci, is going to jail, maybe. He should be sent away for a decade. Patrick Kennedy is a nut in sheeps clothing. The Speaker of the House is about to get drummed out on his ass, maybe, for having some state employee service him, a la Klink, twice a week.

It's endless.

Get ready, Joe. The Cali bashers will be out in full force on this thread. Especially the ones that have never left their own counties in whatever state they do live in.

The Senate Majority leader (Dem. of course)in my state was charged with 20 felonies yesterday by a Milw. County D.A.(don't know party affiliation, but DemSen accuses prosecutor of political motivation, so am assuming Republican). Today the Assembly Speaker and two other Republcans were charged with 1 felony each (by a dem D.A. in Dane county {Madison, WI}).

I respectfully submit Wisconsin for the Gold Medal of Corruption.

Wisconsin has to be in the top three for sure. The voter fraud that occurred in the 2000 election is still uninvestigated by Milwaukee's D.A. E. Michael McCann.

Lest we forget Smokes For Votes too.

Milwaukee has been corrupt for decades.

Tommy Thompson, I miss you!!!!!

Nah. It has to be Massachusetts. Their corruption is systemic. Ever heard of Ted Kennedy? The Big Dig? Harvard University?

The rest are bush league.

By the way, I'm not from Massachusetts. God smiled on me.

Yes, New Jersey — "Where the debris meets the sea". Where the Police Departments have unlisted numbers and the Fire Companies don't make house calls.

Jawja. We have Guvna Roy Barnes and one party (democRAT) state guvmint. The state is the number one gerry-mandered province in the country. At one time Cynthia McKinney's district ran from DeKalb County in a jagged line to Savannah, a distance of over 200 miles. We have Max Cleland who might be an erstwhile war hero. We have Bill Campbell, former mayor of Atlanta who's staffers are still being prosecuted. And we have Julian Bond, Ralph David Abernathy, Andrew Young and - worst of all - Jimmah Cahtah.

Now I DARE you to top that.

"Tommy Thompson, I miss you!!!!!"

Tommy is the one who gave us our present deficiet, McCallum recognizes the problem and has campaigned accordinly, unfortunately reality is not going to embraced at the polls.

Missouri - we elect dead men and we keep the polls open late at night so EVERYONE can vote! Not too long ago they also found a demorat get out the vote person who was turning in piles of voter registration cards full of dead people living at vacant lots. It doesn't get any better than that!

You've got a good chance. After all, along with Spendenning and KKT we've got Mikulski and Sarbanes- present day. And, don't forget Spiro Agnew, Marvin Mandel and Dale Anderson, et al in the recent past.

Do we have a winner here?

The commie, Lincoln "the Commie" Chafee, the commie, lives in Virginia, not Rogues Island, so he doesn't count. But we don't need him to prove Smuggler's Cove as the most corrupt state.

Do your states have "Mayors in Prison Day" because the mayor of every city in the state is either in prison, on his way to prison or was just released from prison?

Do you have no separation of powers? Meaning a guy who's district is basically a cemetary in Pawtucket who hasn't even had the decency to plant some mums in his district, over rules the state senate and the governor?

Can this unelected tyrant hire a bartender from a strip club for bi-weekly blowjobs in a secret room in the Statehouse then hand her a million dollar payoff and still not suffer any backlash?

Does your state fight to save the pension of your corrupt felon ex-governor who runs his insurance business from his prison cell?

Are you denied by constitution the right of citizen initiative petition? And knowing the citizens of your state, do you actually believe that that is a good thing?

Does the mayor of your largest city, have a radio talk show while he is waiting to serve federal time? And will he continue his talk show while in prison in what is it, Ohio?

If you can't make these few simple claims then just walk away. Because I haven't even gotten started.

Plunderdome? How come the only person vilified despite the many convicted is the only guy who did the right thing?

Face it. We Mooncussers have you beat. You're not even in the game.

Let's see, I have Henry "Nostrilitis" Waxman as my rep, Dianne WhineSwine and Barbara "Check Bouncer" Boxster as my Senators, and Gray "Dim-Bulb" Davis as my governor. My city council has recently banned the sale and possession of a .50 single shot rifle, and they are going to pass a ban on the sale of ammo.

Yep, I lose. (win)

Come on, South of the Angle tree we have Joe Mollicone, who absconded with the life savings of three quareters of the state, but since he cut in the right people, he's out of prison already and gets to keep twelve million that he didn't turn in.
