Taking care of their own or changing the rules as as you go along.

Texas politics is rife with that sort of thing, the most memorable was Lyndon Johnson (Landslide Lyndon, they called him) who in a tight Senate election made sure that the last county to report their votes was one that was dominated by his political machine. He won the election by 137 votes at the last minute. He went on to run for Vice President with JFK, where they moved their vote manufactory to Illinois.

Should have clarified, it was the primary election, not the general election. 1948 I believe.

"....if indicted in a Texas campaign finance investigation..."

Maybe we should wait and see what happens first.

Perhaps we should do away with jail time for violent crimes also. Then we can wait and see how we feel about it after the next person is convicted and decide whether we did the right thing.

I'm sure this is different though. It should be ok on this board because he's a Republican right? Ever heard of mob mentality?

This should wake everyone up eh? Let's hear

My point is..."indict" means to accuse formally of a crime. The article says "if indicted". Therefore, he has not even been formally charged.

So it behooves me to wait and see what happens. Or we can hang him now and the gddmmed horse he rode in on...and everyone who supports him. Your call.

Its just another day in politics AND media. This is kind of putting the cart before the horse, wouldn't you say?. IF he gets charged THEN they will...what? Who knows?

I don't always agree with your political viewpoints, but I admire a cool head and a logical outlook.
As a digression, because I am reminded of the way that news stories seem to touch off so much political fire here:
Even as a non-Republican, I cannot STAND that [insert list of bad words here] Air America male bovine byproduct. I personally think that propaganda and media interference are bad, shaky things to base your political beliefs on, and I feel it is necessary to go out and do research on what the corporate-owned media outlets tell me. And I don't care which way they lean. They all lean so far left or right that they should be called the Leaning Tower outlets.

Amen! You don't hink I'm a (R) by choice do you? I simply think it is the lesser of the evils, but then many people have the exact opposite opinion. When challenged I feel the need to defend my choice. I can't help myself.

The good part is, when challenged I am also forced to research.

I don't think you understand Cindi. The damage has nothing to do with the possible indictment. The point is the Republicans changed the rules of the Senate so that "if" he is indicted he will not have to step down from his position as Senate Majority Leader. They changed the rule just for him, a fellow Republican of course.

House Majority leader. NOT Senate Majority Leader.

Or is there one system for the average citizen and another for the high and mighty? "
