Oh, it's all going to come out eventually and when it does it's going to be a lot worse than the spin they're trying to sell.

But don't worry, a year off...a stint at a "sex addiction" camp playing golf or whatever and he'll be nestled in as a lobbyist making fat stacks of cash.

I think when someone using in their campaign their christian faith and values they deserve to be called out on that when the do things that are the exact opposite of that. It does not matter what one thinks of Christians its the hypocrisy of it.

Yes, kudos to the GOP for following in the footsteps of the Democrats. Is your grasp on reality so tenuous that you really think anyone is going to believe your feeble attempt to spin this to claim that the GOP has the high ground here?

The notion that "what a politician does in his spare time is none of our business as long as he does his job" has finally come to fruition. If a man or woman is personally corrupt they are most probably politically corrupt!!!

Drain the swamp and fill it with people who are responsible (like all citizens should be) and bound to uphold the constitution. In other words, people who take their oath of office seriously!!! It's THAT SIMPLE



again... It's THAT SIMPLE


They better out all those 30-40 politicians that used the hush fund that NONE OF THEM admit they knew about. I suspect that most all of them KNEW/KNOW about it, and I'd bet that those who didn't will be the ones outing the scum.
Where does that leave Trump?

So nothing more will come out about Trump or Moore because they aren't quitters according to your logic.

The voters have decided on Trump and soon they will decide on Moore and that is fine. Right ? Your logic.

That's good to know you have accepted Trump is your president and now you can buy the hat.
No.

People hate “Christian” imposters who wear religion on their sleeves for personal and political gain. They give Jesus a bad name. The Congress is full of them.

They deserve the people’s contempt.

Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) offered a female staff member $5 million if she would bear his child, said a woman who helped bring the matter to the attention of House leaders, prompting Franks’s immediate resignation Friday.
Rep. Trent Franks offered $5 million to aide to bear his child, resigns amid inquiry


The article goes on to note that this happened sometime within the past 2 years

Basically, the funders have traditionally controlled their political puppets of either party via blackmail of some sort having the goods (real or visually captured in some manner) to pursue their own interests via control of legislative process (regulations, picking winners and losers, etc..).


All of these efforts and 'releases' of last year or two now cascading in frequency is a great thing as long as it is not a witch hunt and each case is thoroughly examined. Smear campaigns have been a staple of politics since the first rulers of humankind as have coverups. Transparency is paramount to ridding the true 'rulers' of their puppets. Keep on rolling.


The top of pyramid are the types going to Lolita Island of Jeffrey Epstein's Bahama paradise of pleasure.

This included all manner of elites and royals et. al. The Eyes Wide Shut crowd that director Stanley Kubrick gave insight into in the movie.


People in positions of power have been doing this forever and now's as good a time as any to put a stop to it.


Read former Congressman John DeCamp's, The Franklin Coverup, on how the Boystown Omaha NE location was used to recruit children for the elites pleasure and Larry King would fly them around the country for elites use.

But wait, there's more!!

Fox 9 confronts Rep. Franks before his immediate resignation - Story | KMSP

A reporter overheard him discussing getting $2M to set up a PAC on the filibuster issue. A local affiliate Fox News reporter, by the way.

This happened just a few hours prior to today's apparently sudden decision to resign immediately rather than on January 31.

Enough of the partisanship. Both sides have glass houses and should refrain from rock throwing. IMHO.
The issue here is this is yet another Republican Christian conservative who was caught in a situation that isn't typical to Christians. A Christian conservative like Franks would likely find test tube babies and surrogate parents not kosher since it wasn't natural. I can say this because Frank's is widely known for being one of those legitimate rape believers and don't include rape and incest as reasons for post 20 week abortions.

He obviously didn't as his eight year old twins were carried by a surrogate.

Post 20 wk abortions & his feelings/statements on the subject have nothing to do with surrogacy.
