I say good. His addiction to his own unabashed sexual impulses have been shameful. He might have found counseling for his sickness but was unable to over come his urges. He should have removed himself from public life before he stained all those around him. I do not condemn him for his urges but condemn him for acting them out.

And I condemn him for offering himself as an arbiter of honest values when clearly he was not.

Wow wow wow!
I didnt think theyd even indict!
I wonder if they will register him as a sex offender?

I hope he is afforded the same amount of care and consideration that any other inmate receives while in their custody.

No doubt. And once again he says he recognizes his short comings but now is a different man. While this would be nice to hope for or offer him forgiveness, he said that before and then was caught again proving he was not.
Clearly he was not capable of changing himself. Hopefully prison will.

I'm pretty sure that is mandatory even though everyone already knows that he is.

He always thought himself a ''smart'' guy. I did too. I loved to hear him pound on the injustices of the banking system and corporate power. He raised himself to be a minor icon of liberal virtue then failed miserably by demonstrating an almost total lack of personal discipline. Sad really.

Stained? Touche.


In pleading with the judge to be spared from prison, the former congressman tearfully said he was "a very sick man for a very long time."

"I am profoundly sorry," he said, reading from a page in front of him. "The crime I committed was my rock bottom. ... I live a different and better life today."


Funny how all these people only truly regret their actions when they are caught and/or sentenced. Otherwise, it's business as usual.

Good riddance. I'm sure he'll make brand new friends in prison.

I wonder if we will ever find out what was on that sickening laptop of his.
Especially the alleged "insurance file"

I say "HAAAHAAAA" to him and Huma Abedin. The two of them are the types of people in the political sphere who would hold press conferences demonizing someone for political agendas, but then go and cover their faces whenever it's discovered that they are the ones who should face consequences for their actions.

Have fun in their Anthony!

I was hoping some would catch that. (terry said smugly)

Good. Somebody needed to stop this dirty little man since he was unable or unwilling to stop himself. Maybe prison will provide time and help for him to figure out what the hell is wrong with him.

He will get time served. I doubt he see's a day of actual jail/prison.

Wiener in prison?
He'll be very popular.

What a wiener, sorry had to get that out of the way...

So he will spend 10 months in prison, probably in his own private wing and then be out to do it again . unless as already stated ,
Someone treats him like they do other sex offenders .

Well, doubtless his behavior is unacceptable. And I suppose the verdict is appropriate.

But really, I have to wonder what exactly is really wrong with this guy? I have to ask whether or not at the root cause of his problem is some deep seated psychological disorder which might actually get worse and worse as time goes on regardless of a prison sentence. If I had been that Prosecutor, I would have insisted on the Judge including in the sentencing that prior to release upon completion of the sentence, the guy must be subjected to a thorough psychological evaluation and remand to a psychological facility for 90 days for post-incarceration observation. There's something seriously "off" about this fella.

How about that, the legal justice system worked, and locked up a kiddy-fiddler.


I'm not sure you can say there's some deep seated psychological issue with the guy though, he just likes teenaged girls. The popuarlity of teen porn on the internet suggests he's not alone in that.

The difference is he acted on it and tried to seduce an actual teen. So. He's going to jail where he belongs.

I agree. While many just find him disgusting and think him an example of ''all liberals'', to me he ended up being nothing more than a sad disappointment. Just as was John Edwards and Elliot Spitzer. Big dissapointments, both.

Not only that he acted upon those urges, but that he did not have the political sincerity to remove himself from public office before demonstrating his own hypocrisy as well.
