Why do you want trash like that to rule over you for decades? How would it be a "disease" to replace them with someone who hasn't yet been corrupted?
    I don't need a limitation on my freedom to elect whomever I want who is legally allowed to hold the office. If I want to vote someone out, I can. If I approve of my representative, why should I not be allowed to vote for him again? We have term limits. They're called elections. Just because you or I may not like someone who has held office for more than a couple terms doesn't mean we should get our way over those who outnumber us who approve of them. That seems un-American.

    There are a few words omitted from that quote...

    If you're going to take a quote where the source can be verified, it kinda defeats the purpose.

    Attempted implication in prostitution scandal

    In November 2012, the conservative political news and opinion website Daily Caller published allegations that Menendez had contact with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.[129][130] The allegations were promoted by Republican Party operatives, who arranged interviews for two women accusing Menendez of patronizing prostitutes with ABC News and the Daily Caller.[131] However, ABC News and other news organizations such as The New York Times, and the New York Post declined to publish the allegations, viewing them as unsubstantiated and lacking credibility.[130][131][132] One of the women who had accused Menendez stated that she had been paid to falsely implicate the Senator and had never met him.[131][133] The Daily Caller says this woman was not interviewed for their story.[134] Menendez's office described the allegations as "manufactured" by a "right-wing blog" as a politically motivated smear.[135] On March 18, 2013 police in the Dominican Republic announced that three women had said they had been paid $300–425 each to lie about having had sex with Menendez.[136]

    Yes,Eve, I had read that. Have not really kept up with the case, but read that. I heard a little of his speech where he thanked Graham and Booker for testifying for him.

    But it's to call trump an asshole, so who cares if you need lies to make a point.

    I hate to break it to you but you won't ever be able to vote for Obama for president again. Why specifically should it be different for legislators?

    Wrong. He admitted to sexual assault.

    "They let you do it" is more BS from Mr. Moron

    As evidenced by the 16 women that came forward.

    Yeah, isn't that something? They do the crime and we do the time. They sure do take care of themselves, don't they? Unreal!
