HotWingConspiracy: dittybopper: NEWSFLASH:  People with lots of money try to buy access to those in political power!

Yeah isn't this boilerplate? I can't discern the difference between bribing and lobbying.

After reading through that article, I was hard pressed to find anything of consequence being done that would or could actually be troubling, out of the ordinary, remotely linked to the Pres. Admin (other than hand shake and disappointment), proof of actual corruption linked to Pres. admin, ot anything damning at all...    other than this Melger guy was doing what most business people do, especially in GOP circles, to gain some influence to power that could help them further their business...

What did I miss?

Also that at least some of the elements involved with a scandal may have been fabricated, underage hookers and such being fake and paid for by crime families trying to protect their drug smuggling business...

Yet looking through the comments, it would seem that this was a scathing journalistic endeavor that reveals the dark underbelly of the current administration and its corruption in full bright sunlight, being damned to all who look...

I did not see anything like that in the article...   what did I miss?
Or did those people not even read it?
?

mrshowrules: Menendez was taking bribes.


Money is speech.  Democrats aren't allowed to talk to constituents?

Gulper Eel: mrshowrules: It still has the power to sink Menendez (which it should).

And then the issue goes away. Corrupt New Jersey politician is corrupt.

I want to find out what Melgen got out of everybody, not just Menendez.


If Menendez was caught, why would you wait?  Keep on digging but if you clearly identified one crook, deal with it.

Jackson Herring: MENENDEZ MAY HAVE COURTED REID,OBAMA

ten paragraphs later,

menendez did not court reid, obama


He did, but he didn't get what he was looking for, not directly anyway. The people at the top make sure never to get their hands too dirty with this kind of thing.

I don't think Republicans are all that interested in the Melgen scandal beyond a certain point. There's too much political power bound up in Florida to go around with any of that crazy-ass stopping-Medicare-fraud behavior.
