    Who are these predators?

    or

    Who are these people who continue to vote for predators after they were found out to be predators?

    Besides our famous sexual predators, there was Democratic Mayor Ray Nagin, corrupt politician in New Orleans who was so fucking incompetent during a crisis, and having thrown his support behind Governor Blanco's opponent had no functional relationships upon which to build as they sorted out New Orlean's dwindling options.

    In a time when every hour counts, a predator pol can't suddenly start building effective coalitions to solve immediate problems.

    There was a Congressional Rep on the ballot last cycle, in 2012, who was guilty of voter fraud. Those things are knowable long before someone gets on the ballot. MD democratic party didn't do the most basic homework.

    That's only two of the most recent ones.

    Here in NYC who is that guy whose in his 80s? The one with 4 rent stabilized apartments in Harlem and undeclared property in a foreign country? He needs to fucking resign and spend whatever political capital he has helping younger pols get their careers going.

    Chicago? What was his name Blanco-son-of-a-bitch Blancovich?

    Jesse Jackson, Jr.? Going on sick leave is one thing. Staying on sick leave for months when you know you are going to be indicted it total scumbaggery.

    We deserve better.

    And here in New York, we need to clean house in Albany too.

      She treated the looters in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as dirt.  I kept thinking to myself, "Is Governor Blanco a Democrat?"

      •  She was incompetent through out the whole (0+ / 0-)

        process, if you ask me.

        But I think she was also burdened by corruption in New Orleans, with Mayor Nagin and his corrupt parish contacts at the center of it all.

        No, she gets no sympathy from me. But I hope Nagin rots in prison. I blame him for much of the false info and memes that spread like wild fire. I blame LA dems for LA shifting red.

          Perhaps we should have all Democrats in city, state and federal government sign a Pledge, like Grover Norquist, except our pledge should be more understandable and reasonable:

          Requirements:

          1)  Be a Democrat, not a Republican
          2)  Don't screw up and do stupid crap (a la Anthony Weiner, Jean Quan, Kathleen Blanco, Bob Filner, Rahm Emmanuel, Eric Massa)

          •  Good point - these are con artists nt (0+ / 0-)
