    Don't fall for bashers, but continue to pay up for a company that has been CEO Darren Jamisons personaly ATM while shareholders have been bent over for over a decade.

    Come one, give us all a break, we have been here for YEARS!

    Below are a list of your elected representatives (mostly federal, but I don't mind including state politicians either when they interact with the feds) who have or had criminal records on their Congressional rap sheet. Note the specific language: "Charged" means formal charges have / had been made, though the representative was not necessarily convicted. (I include charges only if said representative shows a pattern of behavior along those lines.) Convicted...well, you get the idea.

    An asterisk at the end of a Congressfolk's record means that the charges came either before or after their terms...though often the "after" is the result of something(s) done while in the Capitol. Best of all, a name in boldface means that the representative is still a representative!


    REP. MARIO BIAGGI (D-NY): In 1988 he was convicted of obstructing justice, tax evasion, conspiracy, extortion, and accepting bribes.

    CORRINNE BROWN (D-FL): Failed to pay unemployment taxes to the state of Florida; sued by several airlines for unpaid bills and falsified travel reports; failed to report sale of her Tallahassee travel agency; improperly reported the sale of her Gainesville travel agency; sued by Whirlpool Corp. for unpaid bills; pursued by the IRS for $14,228 in unpaid taxes; investigations by the House Ethics Committee for possible acceptance of bribes; refused to file reports in the House about potential conflicts of interest while overseeing airlines she dealt with through her travel agencies; charged with money laundering.

    REP. ALBERT BUSTAMANTE (D-TX): Convicted in 1993 of racketeering and accepting an illegal gratuity.

    TONY COELHO (D-CA): Currently under investigation for fraud while serving as U.S. Commissioner General of Expo '98 in Lisbon, Portugal.* He was Al Gore's primary presidential campaign manager until he resigned citing health reasons.

  • William J. Jefferson he certainly isn't the only person committing crimes in Congress?

    Do you know how many Cogressman have others front running on news ritually in the market? Staying under the radar because perhaps your superiors share trigger numbers to help them avoid detection?

    You men are the only line between corruption violating the US Citizen.

    Always remember your superiors are not always correct, if they were than many of you of other races would not be employed there currently. They didn't let persons of race or sexua oritentation in previously for so long and it was approved by the FBI top brass.

    Question all, even your superiors; DO NOT BE GOOD SOLDIERS BE GREAT CITIZENS.

    Speaking of molestation!! lol

    look what happened here, MILLIONS exchanged hands yet the SEC couldn't find on #$%$ out all of the collusion between brokers,companies and other institutions.

    The SEC needs to have their workforce X100, perhaps the US Citizen will get 10 just men out of that workforce increase?

    I know..and Madoff son blew his own head off? lol

    "Showing the flag Ever since Russian armed forces invaded and annexed the Ukrainian province of Crimea last month, the U.S. government has struggled to find an appropriate response. Trade sanctions and visa freezes on Russian government officials could punish Russia for what it's done in Crimea. But what could the U.S. do to deter further aggression?"

    Sometimes you just have to go ALL IN, drop nukes on all of their 3rd degree satellite countries to start with? NUKE the #$%$ out of them, Congress has already destroyed so many of our futures and continues to arm the Wall St. Crooks with a sharp knife to gut our futures, while the media stands by idol instead of exposing the truth.

  • "File this story under the rubric: "Be careful what you wish for." When the U.S. guided missile destroyer USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) departed Norfolk Naval Base to take up station at the Spanish naval base in Rota two months ago, it set off alarm bells in Moscow"

    The leadership of this nation is desperate....control is being lost, corrupt congress is being exposed.

    Perhaps President B.O. is using tactics from the POS Clintonesque playbook of bomb a baby powder factor to avoid a second sex scandal to embarrass the oval office? They media was so helpful, the marriage of corruption.

    When was the last time we had a decent White House Correspondent that reported back the truth to the US Citizen. Compromised.

    When you see members of the media, "DANGER CLOSE" SHOULD be the alert that you hear ringing within, they are garbage and exposed as well.

    If these POS actually increased the SEC workforce by X100 now that would send the US Citizen, Congress wants to clear their name as well?

    That 1931 Huckleberry film with Rooney comes to mind...what will happen eventually is what the man says to the judge in the courtroom....the 35M may not say it who are unemployed but when that number turns to 70M? perhaps will come knocking on the door?

    Remember they aren't looking for our best interest, Congress that is.

    If they were such corruption wouldn't ooze from them.

    Why do serial killers and mass murders always go after innocent people?

    If we can read head lines, you don't think the members of Congress are trading news and events to their family members and others....via 2 or 3 degrees of separation? seriously?

    "A family member was cleaning out the garage and came across a box that looked suspicious. Upon opening the box they found the infant inside," Capt. Michael Roberts of the Pleasant Grove Police Department told ABC News."
