There's a whole bunch of corruption in both major political parties in the US. And yes, there has been a spate of Cali. state politicians being
investigated, indicted and/or found guilty of corruption. Have you bothered to look at the corruption of Republican governors, i.e. Scott Walker of
WI, Chris Christie of NJ, Bob McDonnell (formerly) of VA and Pat McCrory of NC?
McCrory, a Duke Energy employee for 30 years, has done all he could to cover for Duke Energy's environmental crimes; however, this has recently been
made public and he and his administration is now the object of a federal probe. I'll leave it as an exercise to google these other Rethuglican
gubners and their scandals (hint: Christi has at least two others besides Bridgegate).
Am i trying to deflect criticism from corrupt Democrats or the corrupt Establishment Democratic Party? No. I'm just am trying to alleviate the
terrible gas I get when I read some thread here by egregiously biased conservatives who love to whine about how terrible the Democrats are, but fails
to acknowledge all the corruption and political shenanigans of the Republicans.
The Republicans, in addition, are trying to suppress the vote across the country with new state laws because they know they can't win elections
fairly and squarely. Then there's the fact that a few billionaires are essentially bankrolling the GOP, to wit the Koch brothers and the various
PACs and now this Sheldon Adelson primary that was just held in Las Vegas, in which potential GOP presidential candidates have to go and kiss this
billionaire's ring and his backside in the hope that he will bankroll their campaigns. If that isn't corruption, I don't know what is. You can
say what you want about the Democrats, but they aren't attempting to suppress the vote, and they aren't completely in the pockets of billionaires.
