IMO the mental ward thing was all a hoax. Amusing how he won by a landslide while IN the mental lockup!

Let's not forget pops Jesse with his sexual harassment scandal involving Aruba Tommy. Odd the mainstream media aren't discussing it, as if they're trying to cover for him. Think they'd give someone like Sarah Palin such a wide berth?

Oh man if a Repub Congressman was on his way to friggin prison we would be hearing about it. He could get 5 years. And yes it is amazing that even though everyone knew he was dirty he still won his re-election lol. Just shows you what his constituants care most about. The color of your skin.
