    Intern on Menendez's staff was undocumented alien and sex offender

    You hit the political trifecta with just one staffer:

    Intern
    Illegal Alien
    Sex Offender

    Intern on Menendez's staff was undocumented alien and sex offender

    I hate when politics gets involved in something it shouldn't.

    Well, from reading the article it's obvious that nobody could have possibly known that this guy was here illegally, or a sex offender which kind of begs the question.....was the Senator even trying!!?

    All Democrats hire illegal aliens and sex offenders to staff their offices. Moreover, generalizations are valid logical arguments, despite what your high school debate coach may have said.

    Is using E-verify or a simple background check is asking too much? I realize that this is an unpaid, volunteer position but, surely, working inside the office of a U.S. congressman should require at least some minimal scrutiny/security procedures. You hardly ever find what you are not even looking for.

    The rest of us live under different rules.

    Our politicians are god-like beings who are above the law and incapable of error.

    Didn't they tell you that in programming school?

    Not all of them, only those on the left. Do you not remember the fit that the press (and demorats) threw about Romney not properly vetting the citizenship of the employees assigned to his place by his lawn maintanence contractor?

    Because interns have an effect on policy.

    In what bizarro universe is this important?

    Are you saying that the right are ethical and the left dishonest? That's unlikely - politicians are politicians. If you're from the right, you can only see the bad behavior of the left and vice-versa. Stand back from all of it and you'll see 100% scumbaggery all around.

    I am not saying that at all. I am saying that the press is much more apt to persue the "faults", real or perceived, of those on the right.

    I would naturally assume that the media that supports the left would ignore the left and pursue publicity of the misdeeds of the right.

    It's really unfortunate that our media is partisan, just like our SCOTUS. This rabid partisanship means tat the population is constantly misguided and that the matters that are important and should be cooperative are overlooked.

    I can't even imagine a solution for this. Has it always been like this? Or were we more cohesive as a nation in the past? I should remember these things but like so much else in life, I didn't know that I should remember this.
