    The point of Fox digging up this non event? Someone didn't know about something?

    Listening to the video link it seems that his presence at the arrest is just only coming to light.

    So yes, it seems that someone didn't know about something.

    Was there some sort of concerted effort to keep this a secret for a couple of years?

    So his partner cut a sweet deal with the courts for hardly more than a slap on the wrist.
    Maybe its not what you do but who you know? Eh? If this had been a poor kid or minority kid from a poor neighborhood would the penalty have been the same? Does his 'lifestyle' play a part as well as his 'connections' for the leinency?

    Of people I have a hard time loving- BF would be at the top of the list. I don't see how people can continue to vote for a morally bankrupt politician.

    BF is a disgrace to the human race. Yet the people in his district keep sending him back; speaks volumes about his electorate!

    You make a good point: If people realized that who they elect for office is a reflection on their communities and their own values..... maybe they might start being more participative in this process of nominating and supporting candidacy and voting for their leaders:

    If those who we elect are elected to represent us....... they are also a reflection of us and our values and corruption!

    Also, remember that video of the guy talking to voters (pre-election) about the "0", and the shameful lack of knowledge they had of their "HERO"?

    The one question I do remember is the interviewer asking several individuals if they agreed with the "0"'s choice of Sarah Palin for VEEP! Many were in total agreement with this & they though the "0" did a great job in picking somebody as well qualified as her!!!!!!

    When idiots like this VOTE, is it any wonder that the nation is as sad as it is?????:BangHead:

    Why would the Bush Administration cover up an arrest that involved Barney Frank?

    For one...........Bush might be a gun slinger but he was never a mud slinger.



    As for the 'cover up'....... seems I recall hearing a report of this on an alternative radio show..... but our controlled media didnot address this nor question BF? Either it wasn't considered news on the basis of being PC or because there are already too many perverts in media.

    I don't believe that anyone said that it was the Bush administration that covered it up.

    >I don't believe that anyone said that it was the Bush administration that covered it up.

    See below, from post #4. Then who? Fox News covered it up?

    Barney's buddies...

    The local lapdog media...

    The local police...

    The local courts...

    Some of the above...

    All of the above...

    I find it ridiculous that you think that the Bush administration would be the one's keeping it quiet.
