    Republican Felon to Remain In Congress

    Figures.

    Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) is showing no signs of stepping down from office despite his guilty plea Tuesday on a felony campaign finance charge in federal court.

    When asked Wednesday about whether and when he intended to resign, Hunter blew off the question. “Good talk,” Hunter told a POLITICO reporter.

    Maybe the thief is hoping for a pardon.

    Just another shining example of the different standards Republicans and Democrats, especially woman, are held to.

    The fact that Maxine Waters is still darkening doorways in the Capitol is proof to the contrary.

    A perfect example of the Party of Personal Responsibility.

    The last sitting Congressman to be convicted of crimes who failed to resign was expelled from Congress by a near-unanimous vote (I believe 1 congressman voted against expulsion).

    Why do I think the Republican Party of today might vote differently?

    Get back to us when she's been convicted of any felonies.

    We are learning that the law can't overturn the results of a democratically held election, even if the elected official is a career criminal, but he must be a Republican.

    Maxine Waters has been consistently named, even by liberal watchdog groups, and one of the most corrupt members of Congress for steering tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to family businesses and to save herself from financial ruin during the financial crisis. Your felony is small potatoes by comparison.

    Well, no.

    She's never been indicted, let alone convicted. Your feelings don't trump the law.

    It's funny, I've been hearing a lot of "innocent until proven guilty" from the right recently, but I guess that's diffe(r)ent.
