    Interesting you say that right when your former Dem congressman who went to prison for corruption decides to run for congress again. That is your typical Dem. No matter what crimes he commits he is still worth running for office and voting for. Can even kill a girl he is messing with and still get re-elected and made a
    “Lion of the Senate” or be a KKK officer and be re-elected for almost 50 years. That is the Dems. Crooks from top to bottom.

    I am in total disbelief. If the Sheriff of Knox County can steal tax money to help fund his campaign. Why should this lady not be allowed to steal?

    Another one to add to the web site of Republican Offenders. The family values folks. From stealing to lying us into a war. If you mislead the public with false statements 851 times it’s lying. I don’t care if you have your hand on a Bible or not.

    Neither do I, they’re both full of crooks, so I felt your should have generalized, sir. I helped Senator Brown get started years ago, now, I can’t find him.

    Well, John, I don’t belong to a party of thieving shills, so I consider myself fortunate.
