Even the CBC is abandoning Conyers
Got this one from over at Subrealism, which is a great somewhat right of center site run by a friend.
Anonymous is now threatening to expose Cruz’ visits to the ladies of the night. Not sure anyone in the Republican Party other than his wife and kids cares…But it is a thought.
Now…Who did Trump hire to do the video work?
Dang! Congress just started in January…
And already they are dropping like flies.
First 2 Democrats have decided to not run again – California Congresswoman Jane Harmon has stepped down to lead the Woodrow Wilson International Center, and Virginia US Senator Jim Webb has announced his intention not to seek re-election (setting up a probable match between Republican ex-senator George “Macacca” Allen and former Governor Tim Kaine). All this on the heels of the announcement by Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota that he would not run again in 2012.
Of course there was the Senator Kay Baily Hutchison’s announcement that she would retire in 2012, which appears to be setting off a combination of the Second Alamo and the Civil War in Texas among Republicans. Then there is the first of the Republican newly elected Congressmen to step down, Congressman Chris Lee of New York, who is stepping down because of sending women bare chested pics of himself on Craigs List…
Of course, Independent Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman had already announced his intention to retire in 2012.
Note to ex-Congressman Lee…
Did you not get the memo where they shut down the Bob Livingston Congressional Brothel?
Second – Did ex-Congressman Lee just set the World record for shortest tenure? I mean… didn’t he just take the oath about 3 weeks ago?
UPDATE 1 – Turns out the woman Lee sent the risque pictures to was a 34 year old black woman…
UPDATE 2 – To cheers around the world and especially Haiti, where more than 5,000 died as a result of his perfidity, Arizona Senator Jon Kyl has announced his intention to retire.
This is another one of those accusations which is difficult to tell if there is any validity. Certainly, some of the press isn’t above staging or manufacturing a story. Certainly, we have seen a number of bimbos seeking fame and fortune…
And there seems to be no shortage of men in high positions behaving badly or even criminally.
A Portland massage therapist gave local police a detailed statement last year alleging that former Vice President Al Gore groped her, kissed her and made unwanted sexual advances during a late-night massage session in October 2006 in a suite at the upscale Hotel Lucia.
The woman told investigators that she informed two friends and kept the clothes she wore that night, including her black pants with stains on them. But Portland police didn’t contact any of the woman’s friends, obtain the potential evidence or interview anyone at the hotel, records show.
“The case was not investigated any further because detectives concluded there was insufficient evidence to support the allegations,” the Portland Police Bureau said in a prepared statement Wednesday, responding to inquiries from all over the world after the National Enquirer broke the story on its website.
In her detailed Jan. 8, 2009, statement to a Portland sexual assault investigator, the woman said she was called to the hotel about 10:30 p.m. Oct. 24, 2006, to provide a massage for Gore, who was registered under the name “Mr. Stone.” Once inside his ninth-floor suite, she said he pushed her hand to his groin, fondled her buttocks and breasts, tongue-kissed her and threw her down on the bed as she tried to thwart his advances.

What’s up with the Republican Governors and Republican Governor wannabes in South Carolina?
Here we go again: A South Carolina lobbyist resigned from a rival political campaign yesterday and then became the second man to claim he had a tryst with Nikki Haley. Lobbyist Larry Marchant says he and Haley, who’s running for governor, had a “one night indiscretion” in a Salt Lake City hotel room in June 2008, but admitted he had no proof to back up his allegation. “You can’t have any evidence on a one night affair,” he says. “It never happened,” Haley responds, attributing the charges as a response to her surging popularity. “A couple weeks ago we started going double digits up in the polls and now we have had everything thrown at us.” Marchant said he felt he had to go public after old rumors about a liaison were rekindled by blogger Will Folks’ claims, and he started getting calls from a reporter. Part of the reason he came forward, he added, was Haley’s categorical denial last week of being unfaithful to her husband.
Must be something in the water down there in South Carolina – the ostensible Republican Governor to be seems to have caught a case of “Nekkid Hiking”, much like the outgoing Governor Mark Sanford!
A political blogger claimed today that he had an affair several years ago with a married Republican vying to become the state’s first female governor. Rep. Nikki Haley vehemently denied the allegation, made in a post on Will Folks’ blog that contained no proof. Haley called the claim a “disgraceful smear” planted to derail her campaign, which has gained steam from high-powered endorsements, including Sarah Palin and Jenny Sanford.
“I have been 100% faithful to my husband throughout our 13 years of marriage. This claim against me is categorically and totally false,” Haley, a 38-year-old mother of two, said in a statement. “It is quite simply South Carolina politics at its worst.” Folks is a political consultant who now runs FITSNews.com, a conservative site that features occasionally insightful commentary, thinly sourced stories of state political intrigue, and photos of women in bikinis.
