Seriously folks, how many “conservative” convictions does it take before the religious people abandon the party? How in the name of their god and the rules set forth by their book can they in good conscience continue to vote for people that are criminals?
The latest is Ted Stevens. He’s currently the longest serving republican senator. The AP described his case as being indicted on “seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter of a million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor that lobbied him for government aid.”

Last year some of you might remember gay, uh I mean, republican senator Larry Craig of Idaho. He pleaded guilty to charges that came from him apparently trying to get some man-on-man action by playing footsie while sitting on the toilet with a man in the stall next door.

And for the record, the last sitting senator to be indicted in federal court wasfrom Minnesota. He pleaded guilty of conspiring to file fraudulent claims for Senate reimbursement of $3,825 in lodging expenses.
