The ugly, sordid, damning details in
the Bob McDonnell indictment

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/22/2014 8:18:23 AM

If the prosecutors´ case in United States v. Robert F. McDonnell and Maureen G. McDonnell is correct, the corrupt acts of the 71st governor of Virginia and his wife had their beginning even before Bob McDonnell took the oath of office. Virginia´s new First Couple allegedly hoped to start cashing in before they officially became the First Couple. News reports give readers the basic outline of the prosecution, but one has to read the indictment itself -- it´s just 43 pages -- to grasp the full extent of the McDonnells´ alleged corruption. The gist of the case is that the governor

Bob McDonnell passed himself off as a conservative. He actively worked against Ken Cuccinelli in the last election for Governor. He is a person with no principles. I am glad his disgusting behavior came to light before his fraud could be carried out on a national level. As a Virginian I shun this corrupt couple.

First Chris Christie misusing his office; then Bob McDonald accepting bribes. All we need is a Republican waking up with a dead girl or sleeping with children and 2014 is history. Why can´t these guys keep their noses clean?

I am very disappointed to hear these details. Now can we move on to discuss Terry McAuliffe´s career. Was he wrong to buy the Clinton´s their NY House? How about hiring Hilary´s brother to work at the Green Whatever scan? Did that guarantee their election support? What has Terry promised to the out of state unions who financed his campaign? And the scam about the date people die? We know what he promised Boyd for his support, then called it bi-partisan. We have a Sec. of the Commonwealth who slashed opponent´s tires in Wisconsin. Let´s get on to that info.

Outrageous behavior. If these allegations are true - and they appear to be well documented - I hope Mr. and Mrs. McDonnell spend a lot of time in the slammer.

When he was on the list of potential VP picks in the last election, I never gave him a second thought, as he seemed rather devoid of enthusiasm, energy and personality. Apparently I was wrong, as his and his wife´s enthusiasm was over the top when it came to material things they coveted. I view them now as bottom-of-the-barrel people. No excuse for this corrupt behavior, and certainly no sympathy is deserved.

The staggering thing about this for me is how cheaply McDonnell was bought. A bunch of ticky-tack stuff. He clearly needed to take lessons in corruption from our "friends" on the Democratic side of the aisle.

You´d also think, as an attorney, that McDonnell could have been a little more clever in hiding his corruption in quasi-legal arrangements.

And yes, I´m being snarky with all this. My rule in life is that you should never trust *any* politician, of any party. Politicians are a necessary evil at best, and they should be watched constantly and given as little power as possible. The Founders understood that, but apparently the American people have forgotten it after just a couple centuries.

I knew the late John Connolly professionally a few years back. I asked him about the indictment (he was acquitted) for accepting money ($10,000 was the allegation and the indictment was politically motivated) from the Milk Producers Association when he was Treasury Secretary under Nixon. He said "Son, I can be bought but not for that little amount of money". Apparently these two grifters are in a Clinton class, maybe all by themselves.

Will someone look into Williams´s political affiliations and report? McDonnell is not a fool, but he obviously could be bought.
He has been effectively knocked out of contention for national offices, benefiting only the DNC.

It is comical that some here are aghast that McDonnell and wife got supporters to purchase stuff for them. What world have you been living? Is this not standard procedure for some Democrats? Of course Dems are never prosecuted, save JJ,Jr.

We have an Atty Gen that represented Marc Rich in obtaining Clinton´s pardon while Rich´s ex-wife Denise Rich convinced Clinton a pardon was the thing to do. What was the price? No one wanted to know. Bribes by the Chinese? See no evil, hear no evil.

Now Bob McDonnell? Dresses and shoes and shirts and a ride in a neat car? Then a loan? The Dems will call for execution. Not for guilt, but for stupidity. They are afraid McDonnell will give the Dems a bad name. They always ask for, and receive, much more.

And to think Sarah Palin was hounded out of office by baseless ethics complaints. Sounds like McDonnell was easily bought but it also sounds like his wife was one out of control diva. She sounds like a real piece of work.

While I hope that they receive the justice they deserve, I want to ask, what is different between them getting free golf outings, vacations at lavish homes and designer gowns for FREE and what Barack and Michelle do all the time, right out in public? Michelle just spent a lavish vacay in Hawai´i at the home of a huge Obama donor and someone who makes money off the "big fish" she is able to interview and have access to...I mean, if Oprah were a pharmaceutical tycoon I´m sure there would be howling, but alas, she´s just a little ´ole media tycoon, so no conflict of interest there.

It is more widespread than one thinks and extends into law and the bench and all sectors.
It is long past time to clean house and almost time to abandon the old place. Sad. As I child I saw the old clapboard homes out in the sandy fields. Long abandoned. I wondered why. I think I am starting to know now.

The whole political scene in America is so one-sided, that the lo infos must think only Republicans are dishonest, cheating, grubbing, immoral grifters. We may have a few, and they are always exposed and punished; sometimes unfairly. The miscreants on the other side of the isle get away with all the same crimes, plus MURDER and get away with it all. Justice in America has become a JOKE.

Progressive types relentlessly kvetch that requiring fidelity to principle is a unacceptable ´purity test´. As usual, they´re wrong about this and everything else. Simply, you have principles or you don´t. Principled conservatives keep their word, stand for enduring values and don´t solicit bribes, among other attributes. Obviously McDonnell was a fraud and hustler from very early w/an enabling and grasping wife. Sad about the kids. Over time, the TP will become wiser and more discerning.

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell. There isn´t much that people can do to protect themselves until the affected websites implement a fix. Here are answers to some common questions about

few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise.

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York

WASHINGTON — Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, population 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
