Culture of corruption update:Dirty Dem Laura Richardson gets House ethics wrist-slap for law-breaking, obstruction

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 1, 2012 12:29 PM

This blog has chronicled the dirty dealings of California Dem Rep. Laura Richardson since May 2008, when she bailed on her half-million-dollar-plus, second-home mortgage. She was also a tax-dodger and utility bill welcher. A few weeks later, it turned out that she had defaulted on three home loans while lending her campaign $77,500. A few […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 17, 2012 01:02 PM

Mmm, mmm, mmm. The culture of corruption. When last we revisited the House ethics case of Maxine “OneUnited Bank” Waters…nothing and more nothing was happening.

Capitol Hill’s Other Dirty Laundry by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 The same congressional panel that launched a preliminary inquiry into Weiner-gate this week has been diddling around with several other Democratic ethics scandals for years.

With Charlie Rangel’s ethics trial out of the way, it’s one wrist-slap down, one to go, for the Dems. But it looks like fellow Congressional Black Caucus member and entrenched race hustler Maxine Waters will have a little more time to wait. The House Ethics panel says in a statement released this afternoon that new […]

Star Parker Running for Congress?

By mmguestblogger  •  March 23, 2010 02:07 PM

I’ll admit my bias up front: I really dig Star Parker. When I first met the former “welfare queen” back in 2004, it was like meeting a rock star. I shared a panel with her at a conservative student conference. I was so nervous, my voice shook. She was relaxed, funny, and informative. In this […]
