Who could have ever guessed that a Party of Jesus US Senator would be caught taking money on the down low from a oil company? I’m so, um, surprised?
Alaska Senator Ted Stevens voted against equal rights for gay Alaskans when he supported the utterly hopeless Jesus-Brand Anti-Gay Marriage US Constitutional Amendment, but according to the charges filed yesterday he thinks that Republican Legislators should have Special Rights® to accept a quarter of a million dollars worth of presents from oil companies affected by his Senate votes. Years ago this type of bribery was called a bribe, but to current day Party of Jesus legislators this is just an “enhanced campaign contribution”.
Ted scored $250,000 worth of freebie home renovations, an expensive Land Rover for his daughter, and maybe he also pushed through some fishing legislation that directly benefited his son.
But the most shocking part is that in an oil rich state with lots of oil and oil companies and oil exports a Party of Jesus Senator took “enhanced campaign contributions” from an oil company.
If I did not know any better, I might think that the Party of Jesus was really just some sort of a sanctimonious and hypocritical front for a bunch of greedy me first liars that only want to rape the US economy to fill the pockets of their wealthy CEO pals. But heck, what do I know?
Looks like Alberto “Torture Time” Gonzales did not get rid of all of the honest employees in the Justice Department.
