    Wasn't Duke Cunningham's case similar as well?

    Congressional censure is about the same as a sternly worded letter from the UN... worthless.

    an observation extremely polite americans would greatly prefer not to make:

    half the dems who voted FOR charlie were from the cbc

    only one cbc'er, artur davis from alabama, stood for justice

    one of the gop'ers on charlie's side was firebrand peter king (msnbc regular) from long island

    a whole bunch of new yorkers sided with charlie, it is notable

    All I have to say is, artur davis gets my full respect, and I would listen to any opinion he had, he's the actual democrat that's not a slave to the liberal-democrat ideology.

    The last minute pleas for a reprimand and his apology at the hearing didn't sway the vote. His posturing for the past months did not match the reaction today. There was even a vote to reprimand only, which failed.
    Isn't a censure a "shame on you, don't get caught..cough cough I mean shame on you don't do that again"? If this is the case then it seems to be a waste of time and nothing more. Not that I am complaining because as long as they are wasting their time on nonsense the less time they spend screwing up the country.
    "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

    I like what you have going there, but you should rephrase it to any elected official as corrupted, not just dems.

    Instead of "draining the swamp" we get censuring the swamp?
