Another Democrat Violating the Law and Congressional Ethics.. yawn

Yet again we have a Democrat pol violating the law. This time she – House Member Eleanor Holmes Norton  – is calling, evidently most likely on a government line – soliciting a contribution from an interested party in her geography, in the area in which her committee and subcommittee work and pass legislation.

And she either is SO STUPID she doesn’t know that leaving a voicemail with an illegal request is, um …DUMB, or she feels so entitled that she just doesn’t care about the law. I really can’t tell which it is and will leave the decision up to you.

It is illegal to solicit funds from government offices and telephones. It is illegal to… well, just about everything she said was illegal…. you can read the link and listen to her voicemail.

Oh, yeah… it is becoming more and more difficult not to notice something… uh… unique? … standard? consistent? … about many of the ethics charges we’ve been hearing about over the past several months… Let’s see…. what do Rangle, Waters, Norton, Johnson, … have in-common? What do these four and Jefferson – the guy with $90 grand in his freezer…have in-common; what TWO things, as a matter of fact?

Hint ALL EIGHT Congressmembers under ethics investigation  by a Democraat-controlled Congress….. share two things: They are Democrats and they are members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Is there a special feeling of, oh… I don’t know… entitlement … maybe going on here?

Maybe the CBC can help us out in explaining this?

You decide.

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.

    David Clark: Best post election ansylais I have seen. Cogent, succint, and well thought out. Get out of the computer stuff and get into the business of being a political advisor. Then when you are there, get me job too.Thank you very much. Though most of my posts take less than 10 minutes to type, I actually put a lot of time and energy into this one (several of my political posts took longer than 10 minutes, btw). I’ve studiously avoided trying to simply repeat conventional wisdom, and I try to offer unique insights that you won’t find elsewhere. I think that I mostly succeed. Politics is something that I take seriously, so I’m proud of this one. At one point, I was interested in pursuing a career in political writing and such. Before I started my second business, just after I graduated from college, I applied for a job as a ghost-writer to a very well-known conservative (former cabinet member, multiple best-sellers, appears regularly CNN in the evening and on Sunday morning talk shows to this day). It wasn’t a listed job. I knew someone in the Lamar Alexander presidential campaign who knew someone in a think tank who know someone, and I actually ended up being one of the top 2 candidates. The thing was, the person who got the job had a PhD from Cornell(!). The position didn’t pay well at all, because it was simply a prestige position. I was fresh from my BA, but I couldn’t imagine getting a PhD from Cornell and then working for such a small wage. It’s a very, very crowded field. So I gave up and became an entrepreneur (again).I used to write op/eds that would get picked up by newspapers, but they don’t pay for them. Unless you’re with a writers group or a syndicate, they’ll publish it for you if they like it, but they won’t pay a dime. I wouldn’t know where to start to try to get paid to write the stuff.I’ve never looked into running campaigns, but it doesn’t pay much unless you really hit the big time. Anyway, I wouldn’t know where to start here either.I could never actually be a political candidate, because I look at too much porn. Just kidding. When I was a kid, I had political ambitions, and I used to want to take over the world, so to speak, but when you grow up your priorities change. Any more, it’s hard for me to understand how someone could get dragged into politics unless she were dragged in while still young and stupid. Or maybe if she’s a celebrity who is actively recruited. Nowadays, I can’t see how I’d take a political office even if it were just given to me.
