Draining the Swamp

This is one way of emptying out that cesspit of nastiness and vileness that seems to breed all sorts of scaly and slimy critters. Too bad it takes so long and the filth gets to take away the accrued pensions unjustly earned through iniquitous activities.
I care not a nit for which party they belong; “Off with their heads” to quote the Red Queen.

Rep. Trent Franks Announces His Resignation from Congress

Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) released a statement Thursday announcing his resignation from Congress, citing a conversation involving surrogacy that made female staffers uncomfortable.

The House Ethics Committee is reviewing the incident, Franks wrote, saying that in the current climate he would rather spare himself and his loved ones the “public excoriation” that would involve and will be leaving Congress as of January 31, 2018.
House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) office released a statement Thursday saying Ryan was informed of “credible claims of misconduct” against Franks last Wednesday and then spoke with Franks, who did not deny the claims.

“Subsequent conversations took place this week between the speaker and Rep. Franks leading to the congressman’s decision to offer his letter of resignation,” according to the statement.

Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ), will call a special election to fill the position since Franks’ resignation is more than six months ahead of the general election. [snip]

In his parting statement, of course, this idiot made mention how he cares about women and worked to maintain a safe and stable work place...

Peccable reflections

The Party of “Truth, Light and Brotherly Love”, yes that very one that accuses the GOP, conservatives and all “Deplorables” of being racist SOB’s and bigots of the worst kind, produced this colorful character, a fundraiser from Missouri.

Democratic Fundraiser Charged With Racially Motivated Gun Crime

Well, this is a wild story, albeit a local one, coming from Missouri. A top fundraiser for the Democratic Party has been arrested and charged with a racially motivated gun crime. Matthew Lieberman is accused of drawing a handgun at two locations, firing shots, and shouting racial epithets. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that surveillance footage captured Lieberman with a firearm, along with shell casings at the scene that matched those found in his car. He was arrested on November 29. His bail has been set at $250,000 (via St. Louis Post-Dispatch):

Veteran Democratic fundraiser Matthew Lieberman has been charged with multiple felony gun crimes after allegedly firing a handgun and shouting racial slurs at eyewitnesses at two businesses Tuesday.

Lieberman pointed a handgun at someone at the Amoco gas station on Skinker Boulevard and Highway 40 (Interstate 64) while using racial epithets just after 11 p.m. Tuesday, according to court documents. He then allegedly fired multiple shots at the building from his car.

In court documents, investigators said surveillance footage showed Lieberman with the gun, and bullet casings at the scene matched the make and model of bullet casings found in Lieberman’s car.

Less than 15 minutes later, Lieberman was at the Jack in the Box on Hampton Avenue, shouting racial epithets at maintenance workers, according to court documents. He fired a gun several times from a Mercedes sedan, the documents say.

[…]

Lieberman, 38, was arrested Wednesday and now faces charges of unlawful use of a weapon and armed criminal action. One weapons charge includes a hate crime enhancement, with officers reporting that Lieberman’s “conduct and use of epithets indicate his actions to be motivated by race.”

You never can wonder more about the depths of hypocrisy that the Jackass Party can sink. From groping and grabbing to treason to gun control BS, they step in the stink thigh high.
