If there’s one thing politicians love, it’s screwing us while they screw someone else. John Edwards is now being indicted in a case involving misuse of campaign funds.
Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer said in a statement:
“900,000 in an effort to conceal from the public facts that he believed would harm his candidacy.”
All immorality aside, was Rielle Hunter really worth nearly a million dollars? At best, she looks like a reject from a Real Housewives show.
The statement continues: “As this indictment shows, we will not permit candidates for high office to abuse their special ability to access the coffers of their political supporters to circumvent our election laws.”
My theory is our economy is in the state it’s in because these guys are too busy banging mediocre-to-ugly women to get any work done. And on top of that, they’re using our money to do it. I bet if we look again, there’s probably a Mistress Tax we’re overlooking on our pay stubs.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is also going to be investigated by the California Attorney General for using campaign money to carry out his own trysts.
Hotel security officer William Taylor passed a polygraph test when he claimed Arnold used the California Highway Patrol to pick up women and bring them to his suite at the Sacramento Hyatt Regency hotel.
Eric Bauman, Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party and Chair of the Los Angeles Democratic Party, is demanding an official inquiry into Schwarzenegger’s finances.
