Is there such thing as a Republican without a record? Trooper-gate, Keating 5, No license/owes taxes...?

Update:

It seems like every Republican has some sort of legal issue.

Update 2:

MIKE..I dont think they want to talk about that. If Hannity or Rush didnt tell them, they probobly wouldnt know.

    I think that applies to all politicians. Republicans just have a knack of accusing their opponents of associations for acts they have already done.

    McCain's associations:

    CHARLES KEATING

    McCain’s former close friend Charles Keating, who is a convicted felon and was found guilty of conspiracy, racketeering and fraud in the “Keating Five” conspiracy. In 1989, a Senate Ethics Committee found McCain guilty of using “poor judgment” in this controversy.

    G. GORDON LIDDY

    McCain is close friends with G. Gordon Liddy, who was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping as part of the Watergate conspiracy. Liddy served more than 4 years in prison for these crimes. Liddy calls McCain an “old friend” and McCain has appeared on Liddy’s radio program as recently as May 2008. Liddy has contributed more than $5000 to McCain’s campaigns over the years, and held a McCain fundraiser at his home, too.

    INDIAN GAMBLING INDUSTRY and JACK ABRAMOFF

    McCain “counts casino executives among his close friends and prolific fundraisers” reported the New York Times, that called McCain “the father of Indian gambling.” McCain has led the passage of legislation that has been very beneficial to the Indian gambling industry.

    DUKE TULLY

    The godfather of one of McCain’s children and close friend, Duke Tully, who served as McCain’s PR man and lied about his own military achievements that he concocted.

    RICHARD QUINN. McCain payed $20,000 a month to this political consultant, a neo-Confederate, who was one of the leaders of the state's pro-flag faction. Editor in chief of Southern Partisan, a magazine that published apologias for slavery and sold paraphernalia celebrating the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. McCain describes Quinn as "a man of integrity" who wasn't responsible for what appeared in his own magazine. REP RICK RENZI (R-AZ) indicted for extortion, wire fraud, money laundering and other charges related to a land deal in Arizona.. Renzi has been good friends with John McCain for years.

    Most of these people have been convicted of crimes.

    i'm no longer a repub yet once you care to look up that Keating ingredient, McCain became got here across harmless alongside with democrat John Glenn and all the different those that have been in on it have been all democrats. Ayers became a time-honored chum of Obama's. Sorry to make a mistake your little accusation yet you infants would desire to learn till now you're making a fool of your self at here returned. I see the desperation on your question reason you already know that Obama is dropping the election. President McCain has already gained.

    Wow people in both parties lie. There are criminals in both parties. It's not every republican, much like it's not every democrat.

    Politicians get greedy and think they are above the law, on both sides.

    Chris Dodd, and Pelosi have a few things to answer too and that's just a scratch on the head.

    I you really this ignorant or are you acting. Approximately half the country is republican and you are saying we are all in legal trouble? Come on. Most of the convicts have said they will vote for Obama I guess that makes more democrats in legal trouble than republicans.
