    You've always been reluctant to digest full and complete answers. I've always found that odd.

    not at all. Those who abused their position for power and money in the past go to jail, and that's good. Let us hope that those who are currently doing so see the same effects. Equality before the law.

    We sure don't hear the Libbos crying about money that is laudered through labor unions.

    I think political criminals like this should go to jail. Dude just made a whiney post simply to deflect what happened in the OP.

    So you want to put a large number of GOPers in jail? That is a first coming for you...

    Party affiliation really should have nothing to do with it. Listen, I defended DeLay early on, and still to some point think it was a political prosecution. But, in the end, if a court finds him guilty, and there is evidence of misdeed that lands him in jail, that is the reality.

    The GOP has always placed justice before wrongdoing. Think about it...When wrongdoing is revealed by GOP members in the house or Senate, then the usual course of action is to immediately require their resignation, not so much from demo's who tend to circle the wagons, and cheer if the member is lucky enough to beat the charges.

    Doesn't the phrase "lucky enough to beat the charges" really mean "not convicted of wrongdoing"?
    And, do Republicans want to censure other Republicans who have not been convicted of wrongdoing?

    why would they do that, it makes no sense.

    I think the wealthy and powerful who commit money crimes should be given an out, a way to avoid jail time (after they're convicted, of course. Before, they're innocent, regardless of political party).

    They should be allowed to, instead of costing the taxpayer fifty grand or so a year for jail, go out and get a minimum wage job and live on that salary, and that salary alone, for a year.

    No big house, no fancy car, no Armani suits, no being called Mr. and Sir, just go to work five or six days a week and live on the proceeds of $7 and change an hour, less payroll taxes of course.

    Taxpayers would save, the perp would learn something about finances and how the other half lives, and justice would be served. It would be a win-win situation.
