UPDATE: Thank you for the House.

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:

ex-Rep. Tom DeLay

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.

Bill Frist

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.

Maf54 (7:53:45 PM): in your shorts and polo shirt?

Maf54 (7:54:15 PM): ummm nice

Jack Ryan

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."

Duke Cunningham

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

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.


The House is ours if we keep it up.

Democrats need to hoist up their bootstraps and hammer the Immorality, Liar, Evil message from now until Nov. 7th.

Jay Fawcett for Congress

He says this at kos:

For the last twenty years the Democratic Party and Democrats have been under attack for our supposed lack of understanding of national security policy and family values. I've had it; I'm done taking any flak on these issues. The Speaker of the House protected a sitting Congressmen from investigation when he knew he was improperly sending emails to a page. Pages are generally under the age of eighteen, this one was sixteen.

Yesterday, the same Speaker issued a letter which kind of, sort of supports my opponent for a seat on the House Armed Services Committee. This is a position that my opponent is not prepared for nor has the background to understand. My opponent has continually stated, through his campaign manager, that he will support the President without question and follow the Republican Party leadership.

Let's summarize: Hastert has turned a blind eye to sexual harassment in his own party, he is supporting an unqualified candidate for a position in a time of war that directly deals with the oversight of that war. If this is family values and national security we are all in a lot of trouble.

Hastert should immediately step down as Speaker and call for a formal investigation of the events surrounding former Congressman Foley. As a Veteran, I put my life where my mouth is and served this country. Let's see if Hastert and Lamborn have the guts to do the same.

You forgot Bob Ney of Ohio...

agreed to plead guilty to corruption charges...
Good post!

Stan Bozarth

Well done, well done.

And these are just the ones who have been exposed.

They have scared enough people into justifying torture and yielding civil rights. I really want to see how they are going to justify pedophilia. I don't think even Rove can manage that one.

I am rarely at a loss for words...

These past few weeks, I am not sure where my head has been. As I surf the web every morning these past few weeks, i have seen mentionof stories that I thought were OBVIOUS pieces or satire and snarks.

Keith Olbermann gets fake anthrax and Fox News insinuates he is gay.

Allen claims outrage about a Jewish remark and then comes out as a Jew.

Then on Friday, I see something come across my Blackberry about a Congressman resigining over sexually explicit emails.

Yeah, sure.

Yet, all of these turned out to be true stories with the last getting crazier by the minute.

Another IM blurb from ABC News

Maf54: I want to see you
Teen: Like I said not til feb…then we will go to dinner
Maf54: and then what happens
Teen: we eat…we drink…who knows…hang out…late into the night
Maf54: and
Teen: I dunno
Maf54: dunno what
Teen: hmmm I have the feeling that you are fishing here…im not sure what I would be comfortable with…well see

Note that using the Internet and crossing state lines to arrange and have sex with a minor is a felony (multiple actually).

I have started and stopped a blog post about this all day. This is all I could come up with.

The October surprise seems to be...

that "value-voters" will finally have to realize that Republicans are immoral.

I can never manage to log in to Wordpress . . . so I'll leave my comment here:

ditto on the loving of comics

It's boggling, isn't it?

The guy responsible for keeping kids safe from sexual predators . . . aided and abetted by Hastert and the rest of the Torturer majority.

You have to wonder if they're not all closet pedophiles and perverts.
