If it were and aide of a democrat then it would be the lead story on FOX


They would be primarily speculating on what Obama's role may have been.

It's a great rule of thumb. If a politician is discussed in any sort of imperfect light or association, and the party is omitted, that politician is a Democrat.

You should  probably go outside and play now, before it gets too hot.  Be sure to put on your sunscreen and drink plenty of water.  No soda until you're in for the night.  Run along.

As a rule of thumb, you shouldn't respond with a "this" to your own alt.

From another article on the story:


Capitol Police placed a hidden camera in Room 2417 April 4 and placed two envelopes, one with $80 marked "Petty Cash" on one desk, and another marked "Birthday Money" with $120 on another desk. The money from both envelopes was reported missing June 25.

Surveillance video captured a man entering the office just after 6:30 p.m. June 14. The video shows the man opening the chief of staff's drawer, removing an envelope, counting money and taking the cash and envelope with him, the charging documents state.

...

Two days later, Sanchez was interviewed by police about the incident and denied taking money from his co-workers' desks.

"I may have taken a quarter once and a while, but I would pay it back," Sanchez said in the affidavit.

Sanchez worked as a senior legislative assistant for Bachmann.


This is exactly the level of intelligence I would expect from a Senior Legislative Assistant to Michelle Bachmann.

No, on lobbyist day, the envelopes have more then $1,000 in them.  It was whore Wednesday.  The last politician to pay a hooker with a check was Jerry Springer.

Russ1642: Who steals less than $1000? That's a big risk to take for an insignificant amount of money.


Maybe he figured it was worth this risk given that she's retiring, and I can't imagine her aides will be in high demand for other candidates.
