    It gave me chills and still does too.  Mario's speech was great.  Unfortunately I've heard rumors that "cons" had some stuff on his family and connections to the Mafia (Andrew is clean, this was basically his grandfathers on both sides and family members at the years and years ago).

    As for Issa, he's a total asshole scumbag and I hope we can defeat him next year.  

    Never be afraid to voice your opinion and fight for it . Corporations aren't people, they're Republicans (Rev Al Sharpton 10/7/2011) Voting is a louder voice than a bullhorn.

      I hail from Rhode Island, a big mob state, so I know exactly what you mean. This stuff is so pervasive, that's it's not at all uncommon for good people to have family that have some mob connection somewhere. The first honest mayor our capital city of Providence had in generations was the son of a mob lawyer. He decided at a young age he didn't want to part of that world at all. I'm referring to David Cicilline, who is now RI's 1st district congressman.

        Today if the same thing happened, but this was the 80's and things were different.
