Just out of curiosity, what was the last conservative led scandal that was proven in court??


What was the last scandal such as Acorn, fast and furious, Hillary email scandal, Biden ukrain, Hillary Russian collusion,irs scandal and such that has gone farther than accusations??

You can accuse people of anything for free basically, but indictments and prosecutions take evidence..

So what was the last conservative conspiracy that actually manifested in the real world, not just right wing world???


Have any conservative led scandals manifested at all in the last 20 years?!?!

Obama's administration was the most corrupt and scandal ridden in history - but his self procalimed wingman Eric Holder would never bring any charges or even investigate, much like Lorretta Lynch. Since then, the weasly Dems have resorted to smearing and throwing accusations about in order to stop any investigation into Obama's corruption - including using impeachment proceedings to try and derail a DoJ investigation into their corruption in Ukraine.

IMHO:

Most if not all the liberal issues lead directly or indirectly to Obama. To keep Obama's name clean, things just don't get started.

E.G.

Do you agree that Hillary had a private email that she used for state department business? If you answered "yes" to that, then the follow up question is: Which option do you choose?

A )The whole time Hillary was Secretary of State, Hillary and President Obama had ZERO communications.
B) Obama and his staff allowed and utilized Hillary's personal email. Which would make them all guilty of mishandling classified info

I will agree with you on one item of a conservative led scandal that didn't manifest into anything. That Jeffery Epstein was part of a powerful pedophile sex ring. We all know that's NOT TRUE and he KILLED HIMSELF in jail...

This is a great way to point out, that both sides can be corrupt. But somehow the Dems get away with all this.

Question: how do they get away with it? More corruption?

Personally, I think the answer is: Yes

Remains to be proven as just yet, but one could say that there is a certain proceeding that is on going being done under the color of law involving a Republican winning a campaign over a presumptive winner...you might have heard about it sometime over the past six or seven weeks.

Liberals are just extremely careless and Unsophisticated,and no 'reasonable' person would dare try to prosecute them.



So freggin sad.

Liberals are from the paryt of never do anything wrong, and when they get caught doing a lot of snip wrong.

They blame Russia.

They blame bots.

They create freggin inquiries because they have no real candidates to run in 2020.



Social justice is anything but, which is why conversatives have a hard time laying some law and order down on Liberals.

Boy, this is going to take a while. There is such a large number of Republican scandals I’m going to break this up into separate posts. First, we’ll go with the sex scandals, because Republican politicians are notorious perverts:


Donald "Buz" Lukens Representative (R-OH) Convicted of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor for having sex with a 16 yr old girl. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $500.

Robert Bauman, Representative (R-MD), was charged with attempting to solicit sex from a 16-year-old male prostitute. Upon completing an alcoholism rehabilitation program, the charges were dropped. Bauman apologized to voters for his indiscretions but was defeated for re-election.

Jon Hinson, Representative (R-MS), resigned after being charged with attempted sodomy for performing oral sex on a male employee of the Library of Congress.

Thomas Evans, Representative (R-DE), went golfing in Florida with nude model and lobbyist Paula Parkinson, who later suggested her lobbying techniques had been "unusually tactile". [61] Though Evans apologized for any appearance of impropriety, he was voted out of office in 1982. Future Vice-President Dan Quayle and Congressman Tom Railsback went on the golf trip too but were not implicated in the sex. Marilyn Quayle said it was common knowledge that her husband would "rather play golf than have sex any day."

John Schmitz, Representative (R-CA), leader of the ultra-conservative John Birch Society, [64] admitted to having a second family, but refused to accept or support the two children he produced who became wards of the state.

Dan Crane, Representative, (R-IL), was censured July 20, 1983, in the Congressional Page sex scandal for having sex with a 17-year-old congressional page.



Robert Packwood, Senator (R-OR), resigned his office after 29 women came forward with claims of sexual harassment, abuse, and assaults. His denials of any wrongdoing were eventually contradicted by his own diaries boasting of his sexual conquests.

Ken Calvert, Representative (R-CA), was involved with a prostitute, but claimed that no money was involved, and he was not arrested. Calvert apologized: "My conduct that evening was inappropriate.... it violated the values of the person I strive to be.

Helen Chenoweth-Hage, Representative (R-ID), called for the resignation of Bill Clinton, and then admitted in 1998 to having had a six-year affair with a married rancher before she entered government. Chenoweth said: "Fourteen years ago, when I was a private citizen and a single woman, I was involved in a relationship that I came to regret, that I'm not proud of....I only wish I could have learned the lessons sooner.

Bob Barr, Representative (R-GA), had an affair while married to his second wife. Barr was the first lawmaker in either chamber to call for Clinton's resignation due to the Lewinsky scandal. Barr lost a primary challenge less than three years after the impeachment proceedings.

Dan Burton, Representative (R-IN): In 1995 speaking of the then-recent affairs of Republican Robert Packwood and the unfolding affair of Democrat Bill Clinton Burton stated "No one, regardless of what party they serve, no one, regardless of what branch of government they serve, should be allowed to get away with these alleged sexual improprieties...." In 1998 Vanity Fair printed an article detailing an affair which Burton himself had in 1983 which produced a child. Before publication Burton admitted to fathering a son with a former state employee.

Robert Livingston, Representative (R-LA), called for the resignation of Bill Clinton and when his own extramarital affairs were leaked, his wife urged him to resign and urge Clinton to do likewise.

Newt Gingrich, Representative (R-GA) and leader of the Republican Revolution of 1994, resigned from the House after admitting in 1998 to having had an affair with a staffer while he was married to his second wife, and at the same time he was leading the impeachment of Bill Clinton for perjury regarding an affair with his intern Monica Lewinsky.

Henry Hyde, Representative (R-IL): in 1998, Salon.com stated that from 1965 to 1969 (before Hyde won federal office), he conducted an extramarital sexual affair with a married woman who had three children from her marriage. Hyde, who was 41 years old and married when the affair occurred, admitted to the affair in 1998, describing the relationship as a "youthful indiscretion".The revelation of this affair took place as Hyde was spearheading the impeachment hearings of President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Pete Domenici Senator (R-NM) voted for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998 after his affair with Monica Lewinsky. In 2013 he confessed that in 1978 he fathered a son, Adam Laxalt, outside of his marriage; Adam Laxalt's mother is Michelle Laxalt, the daughter of Senator Paul Laxalt and a prominent Republican lobbyist.[94][95]

We really don’t have the space to list out all the sexual scandals involving Republicans, so this small sample will have to do. There are tons more at the link. While not all of these led to a court decision against the accused, they were admitted and were no doubt scandals at the time they happened.

In the next post, we’re going to list the political scandals..

Has anyone else figured out yet that NEARLY ALL politicians are sociopathic scumbags? Sometimes ATS makes me feel as though even the smarter people among us think one party is significantly better than the other.

If one is a 2 on a 1000-point scale and the other is a 3, they're both still turd sandwiches.

And that’s just the Trump Administration so far. I even left out quite a few scandals because there really isn’t enough room. I don’t have the time to go back through all the Republican scandals during the Obama Administration and the Bush Administration, it’s just too massive.

So, tell me again how the Obama Administration was the most scandal plagued in history..

One of the very first things that Bill Clinton did was fire just about every US attorney and loaded it with his crones. I would imagine that had a lasting effect on any prosecutions there after. Dumb bunny Bush kept them on, and if Trump was smart he would have done the same. However, when Clinton did it - if my memory serves me right - the media acted like it was "normal".

Of course they are. The thing is, there’s a lot of people here who believe that the President isn’t a politician, so he’s exempt.

Which is one of the dumbest ideas I’ve ever heard. But that’s what people believe.
