Does anyone else find it highly disturbing that some of the most best political journalism these days is coming from Rolling Stone? That's kind of messed-up.

I actually don't have a problem with the sentence. She had four prior drug convictions and she was able to pay the money back so I detect more than just lieing on the application. Having said that, you would have expected to see more of the bankster fraudsters going to prison, but no they get bonuses.
