Your Republican Scandal Thread

...and let's start with a doozy :

GOP delegate's hotel tryst goes bad when he wakes up with $120,000 missing

"He met her in the bar of the swank hotel and invited her to his room. Once there, the woman fixed the drinks and told him to get undressed.

And that, the delegate to the Republican National Convention told police, was the last thing he remembered.

When he awoke, the woman was gone, as was more than $120,000 in money, jewelry and other belongings."


He was carrying more than $120,000???!!! And his views on Iran :



"Asked by the interviewer how America would pay for a military confrontation with Iran, he said the U.S. should take the country's resources.

"We should plant a flag. Take the oil, take the money," he said. "We deserve reimbursement."

A few hours after the interview, an unknown woman helped herself to Schwartz's resources."


Really. Who votes for these people?

What's the big deal about carying so much money?

I mean, really. That was only his first call-girl of the convention. Obviously he was planning for more than a few more.

I love this quote

'Schwartz was candid about how he envisioned change under a McCain presidency. "Less taxes and more war," he said, smiling. He said the U.S. should "bomb the hell" out of Iran'

I think it's safe to assume that Schwartz, who is 29 and, unsurprisingly, a lawyer, has never been in the military, and has no plans to represent his country in any of McCain's future wars.

Less taxes, more war?

How exactly do you expect to pay for that war?

Next time, I'll mug him.

It's the Robin Hood effect isn't it? I can't be blamed if I pickpocket this guy, as long as I give a little to the peasants.

It's not like he'd even miss it.

Alaska politician blamed for disturbance on flight ANCHORAGE (AP)

— Alaska state Sen. Lesil McGuire caused a disturbance on an Alaska Airlines flight, including throwing a glass of water when flight attendants refused to serve her alcohol, authorities said.

An Anchorage airport police report of the Sept. 4 incident says the Anchorage Republican also continued using her BlackBerry after being asked to turn it off in preparation of the flight from Juneau to Anchorage. According to the report, McGuire continued texting, prompting the pilot to stop the plane as it was taxiing.

McGuire, who chairs the State Affairs Committee, was questioned by police at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, but was not charged with a crime.

She did not immediately return a message left Wednesday by The Associated Press seeking comment.

Witnesses told police McGuire was rude, used profanity, bad-mouthed the pilots and caused further delay by getting out of her seat.

She was escorted through the airport by police for questioning. In the recorded police interview, McGuire repeatedly said she did nothing wrong. She said she was unfairly targeted by a flight attendant.

McGuire cried during the interview, saying "I feel terrible."

The flight crew didn't want to pursue charges and none will be filed, airport police said.

 According to the Sept. 5 police report, obtained along with the audio of the police interview by the Anchorage Daily News, one of the flight attendants said crewmembers chose to not serve McGuire alcohol because they decided she would be escorted off the plane once it landed.

The report says during questioning, officers noticed alcohol on McGuire's breath, her flushed skin and a slightly unsteady walk. McGuire told police she had a glass of wine before the flight. According to the report, a former airport police officer on the flight said he saw McGuire have three glasses of wine at the airport bar before boarding.

McGuire served three terms in the state House before being elected to the state Senate in 2006. She is married to former Rep. Tom Anderson, an Anchorage Republican who is serving a federal prison term on corruption charges. (USA Today)
