Oh yeah! EVERYTHING is the republicans fault. The democrats NEVER do anything wrong.
Chris Dodd (Democrat)
As Dodd in his role as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee proposed a housing bailout to the Senate floor in June 2008 that would assist troubled subprime mortgage lenders such as Countrywide Financial in the wake of the United States housing bubble’s collapse, Condé Nast Portfolio reported that in 2003 Dodd had refinanced the mortgages on his homes in Washington, D.C. and Connecticut through Countrywide Financial and had received favorable terms due to being placed in a “Friends of Angelo” program.
Illinois Congressman Jesse Jackson Junior (Democrat) –In December, the House Ethics Committee announced a probe into Representative Jackson’s involvement in “pay for play” in the scandal that took down former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. “Blago” was convicted of making a deal to replace President Obama’s Senate seat with someone who gave favors to him
California Congresswoman Laura Richardson (Democrat) –A freshman to this list, Representative Richardson is being investigated for misusing her staff for campaign efforts. She has also been in hot water of calling for emergency use of helicopters to go site-seeing and getting preferential treatment after missing mortgage payments on multiple properties.
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (Democrat) – Under investigation since 2010, she is being looked at for recommending, with help from Massachussetts Congressman Barney Frank, OneUnited Bank be given Trouble Asset Relief Program (TARP) money. At the time, her husband served on the board of the bank and held stock in the company. That’s what most people call a conflict of interest.
North Carolina’s former Senator John Edwards (Democrat) – indicted in June of 6 felony counts of misusing funds surrounding his attempt to cover up the affair he had with a former staffer.
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Nepolitano (Democrat) –in an unprecedented move not uncharacteristic of this presidential administration, Nepolitano has granted amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants without the approval of Congress. The legislative branch of our government seems to be a hindrance to the White House.
New York Congressman Charles Rangel (Democrat) – censured by the House for 13 ethics violations, he remains in his seat, proving that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
President Bill Clinton: (Democrat)
Gennifer Flowers. Almost out of the chute, Clinton was hit with allegations that he had an affair with a former cabaret singer, Gennifer Flowers. He would later go on 60 Minutes following the 1992 Superbowl to admit to having caused "pain" in his marriage.
Rose Law Firm. During the campaign, Arkansas first lady Hillary Clinton's work for Little Rock's politically-connected Rose Law Firm erupted with suggestions of conflicts of interest regarding state business. The campaign dismissed the charge, but Bill Clinton elevated the importance of his lawyer-wife when he said that America would be getting "two for the price of one."
In May of his first year, Clinton fired the White House travel office, alleging theft, charges tossed by U.S. District Court. The federal workers were replaced with Clinton allies from Arkansas and the firings were viewed as politically motivated. Clinton had said that if the alleged suspects were found innocent, he would find a way to pay their legal bills, but he never made good on that promise.
In July 1993, Vince Foster, a deputy White House counsel and friend of Hillary Clinton's in the Rose Law Firm, was found shot at a park on the Potomac River from an apparent suicide. Controversy swirled when it was learned that Clinton aides entered his White House office within hours of his death.
Whitewater. One of the cases Foster was working on was a controversial land deal called the Whitewater Development Corporation. It was a failed business deal between the Clintons and Jim and Susan McDougal that eventually led to a probe by special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, though his final report focused on the Lewinsky scandal and barely mentioned Whitewater.
Troopergate. In December 1993, the American Spectator reported allegations that Arkansas state troopers had arranged sexual liaisons for Clinton when he was governor. The story referenced a woman named Paula, who turned out to be Paula Jones, another sex scandal that dogged Clinton for years.
Monica Lewinsky Scandal: Clinton and Lewinsky had had sexual contact in the oval office on several occasions. Clinton lied while under oath about the affair "I did not have sexual relations with that woman"
Oh I see, so you're saying republicans are all racist? Most black people voted for Obama simply because he's black. Isn't that also racist?
