Almost Election Time Again

Monday, May 22, 2006

What do the following names have in common?
They're all either under investigation or have been charged with crimes. May I remind you that these are the same people that were voted into office to do the people's business. It seems that hardly a week goes by that you don't hear about some government official getting in trouble with the law. Just yesterday I read that Congressman William Jefferson was caught on tape taking a $100,000 bribe. Amazing!
With that happy news, I wanted to remind the folks in Washington State that we are coming into election season. With all the blatant and rampant corruption that has infested Washington (the other) I thought it would be fitting to put up our incumbents headshots. But, to make it more interesting, I wanted to portray them to look like police mugshots as if they were criminals. Who knows, some just may be...

Jim McDermott has already been found guilty, in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, of violating the rights of House Majority Leader John Boehner, who was heard on a 1996 tape recording of a call involving former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The court ordered McDermott to pay Boehner more than $700,000 for leaking the taped conversation.
