    I know there are a few buckeyes on the forum..so this guy will bring back a few memories. Jimmy Dimora. This guy ran the county where Cleveland is located like a old school mafia thug. Bribes, bid rigging and prostitutes all included in the scandal. The fall out was huge and many people are in jail due to corruption during this politicians reign. He is doing 26 years currently in federal prison.

    New documents released make it appear that that fine upstanding gentleman Jim Ensign was not prosecuted because a possible loss would look bad in the public eye.

    Documents: Feds declined to prosecute former Sen. Ensign out of deference, fear of high-profile loss | Las Vegas Review-Journal

    Trying to get the husband of the woman you're cheating with a lobbyist job so he'll be quiet about your involvement with his wife, especially when you were considering a run for president. Good stuff.

    Only in Ohio -- Jim Traficant. Former Us representative and convicted of various felonies, including racketeering.

    This d-bag ran with the Mahoning Valley Mob and defended Ivan the Terrible, a Nazi concentration camp guard living in the US. The people of Youngstown would dig this man up and reelect him if they could.

Not only did the speaker convene a special panel to consider impeaching Mr. Hall (it censured him instead), he also tried to strong-arm Mr. Perry. According to Kathy Walt, Mr. Perrys chief of staff, Mr. Strauss top aide told her that if the governor will get Hall to resign, this will all go away. Mr. Strauss office has denied the account, which was reported last week in the Austin American-Statesman. But the story has been confirmed by Mr. Hall, who said Ms. Walt told him about the Straus offer, and by Mr. Perry. I stand by Kathy Walts recollection, Mr. Perry told the paper. I trust her, I believe her, and I think her recollection of what happened is spot-on. "

    It make me wonder why the Republican House Speaker for Texas want to cover up this scandal?

    Side Question:

    Is Texas Part of the U.S. or should we consider it a for Foreign Nation?

    ( Joking or am I ? )
    Trivia time!

    Today in the 1800 somethings, Texas became a state

    (I caught the puny there... sneaky!)
