Not saying she will.. But comparing the Clinton impeachment which was basically a poorly orchestrated witch hunt by Ken Starr wasting 70 million dollars of tax payers money to Arch Moore cutting deals with coal companies after Buffalo Creek... Typical

Serious........guilt by association? Is this where we want to go? Nick Preservati represented one of the largest coal polluters in the area, so hence obviously he is going to push for more coal mining and emissions. After all, that is who he has been associated with in the past.

I thought that was a bad thing?

Bill Clinton was acquitted. Arch Moore was convicted. A. James Manchin resigned rather than face charges, but two of his assistants were convicted.

BTW, Wally Barron was also a guest of the federal government at one time.

Guilty by association? Maybe. A few years ago, I met a man named Manchin who was a member of the legislature. I told him I was unhappy with his family since Gov. Manchin had withheld merit raises for all state government employees and had not proposed an across-the-board cost of living raise either. He replied that "he wasn't on the finance committee" so he didn't know anything about that. I went home and looked, finding his name on the roster of the Finance Committee. Nope. I'm not trusting anybody from that family.

Don't forget that Arch Moore had a $100,000 cash bribe in his office in the state capitol building.

So I'm still confused why the voters of WV repeatedly put these buffoons in office and then do the exact same thing with their nephew and daughter???

I find nothing appealing about them. I'm sorry but I must disagree with the notion that just because your daddy uncle ran the show qualifies you to be a politician.

I can't understand it either. Members of these families failed at the public trust, based on values most humans think are important; like trust, honesty, etc. Most people learn these things at home as they grow up. They learn by watching their parents and family members, observing their behaviors to learn how to treat other people and what will later be instinctive behavior.

That's why it is one important piece of information to consider when evaluating a candidate. Let's see. His daddy was a crook. His uncle was a crook. People said his grandpa was a crook too. Hmmmm. He might have learned how to be a crook. Anybody else running?
