We have been convinced political corruption is the norm and we seem unable to do much about it. However, occasionally a snake gets far enough out of his hole that he is at risk.
This describes the current situation with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The FBI is currently working with Utah state prosecutors on a "wide-ranging" corruption investigation centered on receiving money and other benefits from donors in exchange for political favors.
As if this doesn't have him in enough hot water, his senility came front and center recently when he stated on the Senate floor that "All Obamacare stories -- all of them are untrue, and they are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act."
Even though Senator Reid's approval ratings are very low right now, it is sadly predicted that he will not only survive these FBI investigations, but will be re-elected to the Senate for another term. I hope and pray I'm wrong.

I think Harry Reid will make an excellent candidate for president in 2016. The sheeple will love him. After all, you can't expect honest government of corrupt people now, can you?
Or like in cincinnati have each person vote 6 times.
Saw an interesting thing pointing out the absurdity of voter fraud:
"~~ I think about 1200 fake votes would have to be the smallest number needed. So I would need to hire 1200 live people to vote for those dead voters. Then I would need to train these fake voters with all the information they would have to know in order to be the dead voter. They would also have to practice forging the signature of these dead people so I would need to hire someone to teach them how to forge a signature. They would also have to be the same gender, the same race and very close to age of those dead voters to make sure that no slip ups occur at the polling places.
~~So I would need to hire more people to find those 1200 perfect fake voters. Train those fake voters and make sure they get to the correct polling place on election day. Which would mean providing transportation in many cases. My fake voter might live half way across the state from where the dead voter lived."
I'm unaware of any Obamacare Horror Stories that stand up to scrutiny. They've all turned out to be bald faced lies or cleverly crafted twisting of the truth designed for consumption by the Flock.
I am aware there are the same actors appearing in numerous versions of ads telling a different "true" story bashing Barry Care.
Harry Reid wasn't suppose to survive the last election. Even the most optimistic of Reid's supporters figured Reid was gone.
Then the RepubliBagger ran Sharron Angle against Harry Reid.
Sharron Angle being crazy and a thoroughly unacceptable person to hold a senate seat has nothing to do with Harry reid still holding office, Right?
This points out a serious problem with the Republibagger, they run seriously flawed candidates or tickets and refuse to accept they lose elections because the candidate or ticket is seriously flawed. Palin sealed their fate in '08, in 12 ... Romney - Ryan? Seriously? And the shock at the loss is comical.
What these people do is convince themselves they lost because of some nonsense reason, using that nonsense reason to damage the country, then cry about the damaging of the country.
I'm convinced there is some form of shared mental illness or psychiatric disorder at work in the "Conservative" collective because lack of intelligence doesn't explain them.
Anything Harry may have done is perfectly legal now. Supreme Court said so earlier this week.
~"thousands of cases where registered voters may have voted in two states or after their reported death. A report presented Wednesday by Elections Director Kim Strach to the Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee said 81 voters have a voter history later than the date of their death. The audit further identified 13,416 deceased voters on voter rolls in Oct. 13. The audit showed 155,692 registered North Carolina voters whose first and last names, dates of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number match those of voters registered in other states, but who most recently registered or voted elsewhere. A total of 35,750 voters with matching first and last names and date of birth were registered in North Carolina and another state, and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. Another 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, date of birth and last four digits of their Social Security number were registered and voted in the 2012 general election in North Carolina and another state...A total of 28 states participated in the crosscheck, leaving data missing from 22 other states."~audit by the North Carolina Elections Oversight Committee, And obama won by only 15,000 votes...humm?
Sure makes you wonder how much voter fraud keeps reid in office?
