    10. Sen. Daniel Inouye. The 82-year-old Hawaii Democrat was accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment. Democrats cast doubt on the allegations and the Senate Ethics Committee dropped its investigation.

    9. Former Rep. Gus Savage. The Illinois Democrat was accused of fondling a Peace Corps volunteer in 1989 while on a trip to Africa. The House Ethics Committee decided against disciplinary action in 1990.

    8. Rep. Barney Frank. The outspoken Massachusetts Democrat hired a male prostitute who ran a prostitution service from Frank’s residence in the 1980s. Only two Democrats in the House of Representatives voted to censure him in 1990.

    6. Former Rep. Fred Richmond. This New York Democrat was arrested in 1978 for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old. He remained in Congress and won re-election—before eventually resigning in 1982 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and drug possession.

    In other words, sin/Satan is an equal opportunity employer. I assume you are posting these to show that Democrats, too, have been caught in sexual compromise, and you are right. The issue is not which party politicians belong to, but that they tend to be addicted to power, and power expresses itself in asserting over-under domination.

    If we have somehow overlooked the sins of the past, that does not mean that someone today should get a pass. Foley's behavior would be wrong with regard to anyone, but it is particularly reprehensible with regard to congressional pages, over whose destinies congressmen have control. That makes sin, bad as it is, into abuse, something even worse.

    So the Rev has convincingly shown us that the republicans have become the democrats.

    That gives us another reason to vote them out.

    As if we coudn't get a small list pulled together about the Repubicans.


    I am sorry Rev, but you have certainly missed the mark with this one. Instead of trying to help the kids, your people covered it up. Then, when it hit the fan, instead of readily admiting that something went wrong, your people tried to cover it up and pass the buck.

    Had this happen in your church, would you be standing to the side of the child or the adult?


    Joseph said it best, "The issue is not which party politicians belong to, but that they tend to be addicted to power..."

    And that power, be in from either party drives people to do things they shouldn't do, cover up stuff they shouldn't have covered up, and point the finger to every else, but themselves.

    It just happen to be the Republicans watch this time, and I am sure in time, it will be the Democrats time. By posting such topics, you completely miss the point and side with one side all the time, NO matter what they do, and that just isn't smart.

    All this tells me is that both parties need to be thrown out as yesterday's trash.

    The evidence does not back up your statement. It has begun to appear that there are democrats and "watchdog" organizations that have known about it at least as long or longer than Republican leadership in the House.

    Yet they did nothing, either.

    RM,

    Apparently you conveniently forgot all the GOP sex predators. Not that I link any party to pervs, but there are those in every party. Your partisanship is appalling.

    Actually, currently it does. As no MAJOR news organization that I am aware of has reported otherwise. I could be wrong, I don't watch th news 24/7, but if what you're saying is true, the Republicans should would make sure it got out to every news organization and let the world know.


    Do you have any links to these news stories from any of the major news groups? Not blogs, not opinion pieces, but major news groups?

    Anything to back up what you've just stated?

    Again, I could be wrong and could have missed it, as I don't watch the news 24/7, but I would think news like that would be breaking news and on every network and every channel. I haven't heard anything other than rumor or opinions stating the facts as you tell it.

    Links would be helpful...

    All this is just more evidence that the republican party has become as corrupt as the democrats ever were.

    The only reason to vote democrat this year is to remove the worst of the stink. But if you let the democrats rule for a couple of decades, you'll see the same thing happen again.

    For the most part I agree though there surely are some good one's? Be they Republican or Democrat!

    This may be of interest. One of the talk show hosts believes the story will be drooped pretty quick or is happening. Because the Democrats already knew and the more this comes out the more it hurts them also. The more it hurts or makes the gay community and such look bad, as noted by commentator.


    What ever happened to Morality?:BangHead:


    Have a good one, Ralph

    Draw your own conclusions.

    You sure do sound like Rush using the phrase "drive by" which is something he uses quite often.

    Don't worry, you run a close second! After all, it is evident that you simply parrot much of what he says. I wonder, do you ever have an original thought, or do you just regurgitate what Limbaugh and Hannity say?
