The Modern Republican Party: Just Like a Street Gang, You must Commit A Crime to Join

This scorecard from Salon sums it all up rather nicely:
Tom DeLay (indicted)
Bill Frist (under SEC investigation)
Jack Abramoff (indicted)
David Safavian (arrested)
Michael Brown (to be fair, no crime committed other than his criminal stupidity. Of course, therefore, he is not a member in good standing and thus was forced to resign from the gang)
Bob Taft (pled guilty)
Randy Cunningham (under investigation)
And of course, the ongoing investigation of Karl Rove in relation to PlameGate.

From our own former Governor Ryan (trial underway), to Gov. Ernie Fletcher (under grand jury investigation), the modern GOP is a snake pit of corruption that would make Lincoln vomit in horror.

    That’s not entirely true. You can also be blessed in.

    Note. None ‘convicted.’ Except Taft. And that was for frickin’ golf outings and hockey tickets.
