YOU MUST GO SEE THIS LIST ON A DAILY KOS DIARY. Don't read it all, lord knows I won't, unless you have a strong stomach for Immorality.
For those who have been living in a cave, the Republicans have handed us the House and perhaps the entire government. If it is handled properly.
Because, the facts are that Republicans are immoral bastards, but it might take something like child molestation for the "value" voters to recognize it. Here are the leaders of the Republican Party:
A Texas grand jury indicted House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) yesterday on a charge of criminally conspiring with two political associates to inject illegal corporate contributions into 2002 state elections that helped the Republican Party reorder the congressional map in Texas and cement its control of the House in Washington.
On September 20, 2005, the Associated Press reported that Frist sold his HCA shares, which had been in a blind trust, two weeks before the company announced that earnings would not meet expectations, which caused a substantial drop in the share price.
ex-Rep. Mark Foley
WARNING: Not for the ... well, not for anyone, but you need to know WHO we are fighting.
Representative Mark Foley of Florida may soon be wishing he wasn't so aggressive in passing legislation against sex offenders.
"I am deeply sorry and I apologize for letting down my family and the people of Florida I have had the privilege to represent," Foley said in a statement. The politician did not elaborate on what he was apologizing for or had done wrong.
ABC News was more forthcoming.
One text message series published by ABC had Foley asking a page "what you wearing" and, after being told that the boy had a t-shirt and shorts on, replying "love to slip them off you."
Things got dirtier from there.

the court filings by Jeri Ryan revealed that she claimed that her husband had taken her to sex clubs in New Orleans, New York City, and Paris, where he had asked her to perform sexual activities with him in front of other attendees of the clubs. Jeri Ryan described one as "a bizarre club with cages, whips and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling."
Cunningham resigned from the House on November 28, 2005 after pleading guilty to accepting at least $2.4 million in bribes and underreporting his income for 2004. He pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud, wire fraud, and tax evasion. On March 3, 2006, he received a sentence of eight years and four months in prison and an order to pay $1.8 million in restitution.
Scooter Libby has been instrumental in a number of plots which most people of ethics would avoid. Scooter was a key player in the awarding of no-bid contracts to Halliburton for work in Iraq. The VP's office vehemently denied having involvement in the contracts but it turns our Libby had been meeting with the Pentagon about Halliburton and the contracts. Libby is up to his eyeballs in the leaking of classified information, the identity of Valerie Plame. Judith Miller will testify that Scooter Libby compromised the classified information over coffee.
I can't even dip into this immorality anymore. If the American people don't rebel, they deserve what they get.
