Corruption of elected officials?

Why are so many elected Democrats facing prosecution of alleged criminal activity or currently facing political corruption investigations. Now comes forth yet another, Bill Richardson, Gov. New Mexico. Currently there are seven US Senators, Congressmen, Governors in various stages of Federal Bureau of Investigation's scrutiny. What gives.

    Ah the question all want to know but are asking. They say we have a perfect union. We have what we have. WE the people are given a chance to vote. After that it is out of out our hands. We keep fighting and trying for the rights of good. After all, Democrats are only people. Keep fighting my friend.

    Go figure.

    There will always be corruption. There was corruption from the beginning of time. It's like a bad stench we can't remove. what ever party is in office. the other side screams rape.

    They should resort to duels a la Burr and Hamilton to thin out the herd.

    It's BOTH parties... and until we stand up and start voting 3rd party they are going to continue.

    The two parties know that no matter what they do, eventually they will return to being the majority.

    The Dems get in... do whatever it is they want to do... we get pissed... vote Republican... and vice vers...

    So... until we get pissed enough to say "SCREW BOTH OF YOU" and vote for someone other than them... they are going to continue.

    If we start voting in third party candidates, they will say "OH SH*T.... Maybe we should start acting right".

    OK TD... Yes... I am wrong... so keep voting for the two parties... and keep getting the same results...

    Politics, just politics. Funny how when the Republicans have some indiscretions, the headlines SCREAM it. Sure, this Blago and Richardson stuff is in the headlines, it doesn't seem to be as up front.
