LOLOLOLOL. I don’t care if Cochran goes down the drain over this (and the knee-jerk left might bother, just reflexively because he’s got an “R” after his name, and forget that conservatives despise him), and takes the whole GOPe with him.

"trade it for sexual favors."

From males or females?

not up on my illegal narcotic knowledge, why would a woman trade sexual favors for a date rape drug? it is a male who received them so this makes no sense. unless he was gay and other gay males would give him sex to get the drug to use on other gay males.
OR a girl giving him the favors was gay but would give him sex for the drugs to get other girls to pass out This is the STUPIDEST reach of logic I've ever had, and I've had lots.

Regular shipping is less secure than a diplomatic pouch. But, he weren’t no diplomat.

Thank goodness Cochran is unaware of his surroundings. Per the Washington Post story, Pagan has been Cochran’s lackey since age 16, and this betrayal would be a heavy blow.

I can imagine how that hiring took place.

Cochrane chief of staff:
“Senator, we’ve got a potential new staffer for you to interview.”

Senator Cochrane:
“What’s his name?”

Cochrane chief of staff:
“Pagan.”

Senator Cochrane:
“He’s hired.”

Reporter: "Senator, what do you have to say about these charges brought against your staffer?"

Cochrane: "Butterscotch!"

Reporter: "Pardon?"

Cochrane: "They had it today in the Senate lunchroom! Mitch gets me three helpings!"

Reporter: "Senator, your staffer?"

Cochrane: "Cats don't like me."

WHEW! Thank GOD it was a republican staffer. Had it been one of Harry Ried’s staffer or Nancy Pelosi, they’d have just given him a slap on the wrist, asked where he got it, and can he get some more.
