    Can you approve this assertion without using anecdotal evidence? (some numbers would be good)

    Oh come now this could have happened to anyone.

    It's hard for me to believe the City Attorney didn't stop them and if not that rat them out.

    When I was on a council our Attorney was quick to point out anything remotely close to being questionable, and that was a rare event, But hen were were on live TV every meeting and people were paying attention.

    Had they been all Republicans the Obmadia 5th Column would have been all over this alot more than they have covered it so far.

    And your poat goes to show that your kind would rather make judgments and name call.

    Isn't if kind of funny how the Lefties are fisrst to hateful yet they are quick to point their crooked little fingers at others and projsct their charactor failings on others but never have any proof.

    I guess they all have studied the Alenski Rules for Racicals. The one that covers this (and I paraphrase) lie often enough and dumb asses will believe it. Another tells them to keep the pressure on and never let up. They go hand in glove.

    So sad.

    I do not know about headline titles but I do know republican scandals are treated different by the media. Larry Craig scandal made news for weeks. Jim McGreevey cheats on his wife and the media is calling him a brave man for coming out the closet and goes on Oprah and they consider him a brave man for coming out the closet. John Edwards a very well known democrat has an affair on his wife and it was only mentioned for a day or two.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
