i assume it's b/c something even more damaging is/was going to be revealed. and no, not his being gay b/c errbody already knows about that. but maybe som'n else. it couldn't be the gay thing.
12754418, Word I'm hearing is that he ain't know when to stop taking...

And that his gift accepting antics were over the top for a nigga with his tenure and not a lot of juice.

He'll be aiight tho... he'll be hosting a 4:00 show on MSNBC in a year. They'll make him the conservative Anderson Cooper/Joe Scarborough and he and his life partner will come out in ten years.

12754420, i just read something about it

i think he was getting write offs and tax breaks in excess of 90,000 miles off his company car that he billed to the gov't. not sure how much that translates to in money. but if you get caught for writing off your car and then resign, its only cause there's more shit about to hit the fan.
it's true what they say...people are strange, when you're strangers.

not compassionate....only polite.

I am not like you at all and i cannot pretend.
12754422, lots of spending shenanigans

he had been alleged to have misused campaign funds for office decoration and expensive travel for himself and some employees and interns, plus some funny biz w/his travel reimbursement for personal vehicles. that kind of drama shouldn't be enough to force a resignation.

12754728, where was he driving? oontz, oontz, oontz, oontz

peace & blessings,



I'm an advocate for working smarter, not harder. If you just
focus on working hard you end up making someone else rich and

12754531, Mileage overclaim?!

12754556, the gay bars in his district are spread out. Lotsa miles (err...kilometers) to cover.
Posted by SoWhat, Tue Mar-17-15 05:38 PM
12754713, funnily enough, we still say mileage here
Posted by Ted Gee Seal, Tue Mar-17-15 08:49 PM
Probably just because kilometerage sounds stupid.

I agree with there being more to come. You can say sorry and come back from that. Must be something else in the background.
