Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Calif)
First, the House Ethics Committee found Maxine Water's buddy, Rep. Laura Richardson, guilty of all sorts of transgressions, including pressuring her staff to campaign for her, destroying evidence, and tampering with witness testimony. After intimidating her staff to work on her campaign, she destroyed the evidence. It is inconceivable that after her previous transgressions (she defaulted on three home loans, yet simultaneously loaned her own election campaign $77,500), she was ever taken seriously. Once a snake, always a snake, it seems.
Harry Reid (D-Nev)
Next on the list of nasty behavior is Harry Reid, who said about presidential candidate Mitt Romney, "the word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years." Yes, America's Senate Majority Leader continued his craziness even after he had time to think about it by stating (after being challenged), "I don't think the burden should be on me," Reid said. "The burden should be on him. He's the one I've alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn't he release his tax returns?"
This disgusting tactic is reminiscent of Obama Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter's statement a short three weeks ago that alluded to the idea that Mitt Romney may have convicted a felony.
Watch CNN analyst Paul Begala pathetically attempt to support Harry Reid:
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC)
Finally, in yet another disgusting display, the DCCC released statements suggesting that Sheldon Adelson donated to Republicans by using money earned from involvement in a Chinese prostitution ring. Really? Adelson, understandably, was none too happy with this ridiculous charge and pushed back, forcing a sheepish DCCC to apologize.
Is the frenzied bad behavior a result of pre-election desperation? Whatever the reason, it is not exactly reassuring. Is America as hungry for honor, integrity, and honesty as the author?
