I think aarrgghh mentioned this in a WND topic, but I'm gonna post it here cuz he put it in a fundraising letter.Here Come The Democratic BirthersRepresentative Alan Grayson, a Florida Democrat, is already playing the birther card on Ted Cruz.What? You thought only Republicans could be birthers?In a fundraising email sent out Monday, the bombastic, bombthrowing Florida Democrat Alan Grayson included a transcript of remarks from an interview with MSNBC where he claimed that Ted Cruz was ineligible to be president. Grayson said "since Ted Cruz is a Canadian, and our Constitution requires tha[t] an American win, I'm pretty sure that it's not going to be Ted Cruz." Cruz, a 2016 presidential hopeful, was born in Canada but his mother was an American citizen and the Texas senator became a citizen of the United States at birth.more:[/break1]thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02/24/here-come-the-democratic-birthers.html]http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2 ... thers.html :evil:

California State Senator Leland Yee who represents parts of San Francisco and San Mateo Counties was arrested this morning on charges of public corruption. He is a former SF supervisor, assemblyman and will be termed out as state senator. He is a candidate for Secretary of State to replace SOS Bowen. This is rather shocking news.

This post was linked to the other SFGate article. It's a compilation of reactions and photos from twitter and such:[/break1]sfgate.com/stew/2014/03/26/state-sen-leland-yee-arrested-photos-and-online-reaction/]http://blog.sfgate.com/stew/2014/03/26/ ... -reaction/and nbc reminds us of the other dirt in the state:Yee's arrest would make him the third Democratic state senator fighting charges this year.His arrest comes just one month after prosecutors announced federal bribery and corruption charges filed against state Sen. Ron Calderon.Prosecutors say the Los Angeles-area Democrat accepted about $100,000 in cash bribes and other perks in exchange for his supporting or opposing bills. Calderon has pleaded not guilty.Earlier in the year, Democratic Sen. Rod Wright was found guilty of multiple charges that stemmed from accusations he did not actually live in the Southern California district he represents. Wright is appealing the conviction.Both Wright and Calderon have taken a leave of absence from the state Senate.[/break1]nbcbayarea.com/news/local/California-State-Senator-Leland-Yee-Arrested-on-Bribery-And-Corruption-Charges-252452181.html]http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Ca ... 52181.htmlsacbee explains the effect of that:Two other Democratic state senators, Rod Wright and Ron Calderon, are already on leaves of absence due to criminal charges against them, and their departure erased the Senate's Democratic supermajority at least temporarily. Were Yee also to depart before his term expires, it would drop Democrats to 25 seats in the Senate and give Republicans a larger role in legislation that requires two-thirds votes, such as tax increases, constitutional amendments and a pending water bond issue.[/break1]sacbee.com/capitolalertlatest/2014/03/nbc-bay-area-reports-sen-yee-arrested-in-fbi-sting.html]http://blogs.sacbee.com/capitolalertlat ... sting.htmlAnd apparently he's been suspected of some shady stuff for years:Yee has also faced several accusations of misconduct or outright criminal activity. According to the San Francisco Chronicle he was twice pulled over in 1999 on suspicion of cruising for prostitutes. He said at the time that those were incidents of mistaken identity, and no charges were ever filed. Hawaiian police officers say Yee was once arrested in 1992 for shoplifting an 8 ounce bottle of suntan oil from a store. He was reportedly taken downtown and booked for the $8 theft, but charges were never pursued after he returned to San Francisco, where he was a School Board member at the time.In a 2011 article profiling Yee as a San Francisco mayoral candidate the San Francisco Weekly accused Yee of “a series of possible ethical breaches so numerous and bizarre that voters might feel compelled to seek out extraordinary accomplishments to balance out his weird record.”The SF Weekly also accused Yee of close ties with donors and raised questions about how his stated income could possibly cover his existing debts. It also claims he was ordered to remove his children from a San Francisco public school when it was revealed that his children’s listed address was not the same as what was listed on his voter registration card.[/break1]cbslocal.com/2014/03/26/leland-yee-resume-shows-history-of-successful-lawmaking-murmurs-of-misconduct/]http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2014/0 ... isconduct/links to some of that are in embedded in that post.

What?He was threatened by a gun rights guy for his gun control efforts:Gun-Toting Crazy Threatens Leland Yee Over Proposed Gun ControlIn a February statement, Yee reiterated his commitment to gun control in the face of the threats:"I want to make it crystal clear these threats and any others will not deter me and my colleagues from addressing the critical issues surrounding gun violence ... This case is very troubling and only further demonstrates the need to address this epidemic."more about that here:[/break1]com/2013/03/29/gun-toting_crazy_threatens_leland_y.php]http://sfist.com/2013/03/29/gun-toting_ ... land_y.phpandEverett Basham, 45, a noted Silicon Valley engineer who just got a personal endorsement from Steve Wozniak, was arrested Tuesday for making assassination threats on the life of Senator Leland Yee. Yee, meanwhile, is used to such threats — having also tried to ban the sale of violent video games to kids a couple years back, angering many. But this time, Yee says he was "deeply concerned by the calculating nature of this email," which was one of dozens he received following his proposed ban on quick-changing ammunition magazines.The email, which was deemed a credible threat and used an anonymous name and email account, gave specifics about when and where the killing would take place if Yee didn't withdraw the legislation. The emailer said he had sniper training and an AR-15 assault rifle, the kind used in the Newtown, Connecticut massacre.[/break1]com/2013/02/15/peninsula_gun_lover_arrested_for_ma.php]http://sfist.com/2013/02/15/peninsula_g ... for_ma.php

Charlotte mayor resigns; accused of taking bribes





By MITCH WEISS


— Mar. 26, 2014 7:48 PM EDT





CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A city spokesman says Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon has resigned effective immediately just hours after he was charged with federal public corruption and bribery.The 47-year-old Cannon is accused of accepting more than $48,000 in bribes from undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen who wanted to do work with North Carolina's largest city.





A criminal complaint from the U.S. Attorney says the Democrat, who has been mayor for six months, accepted cash, airline tickets, a hotel room and the use of a luxury apartment as bribes and solicited more than $1 million more.[/break1]ap.org/article/charlotte-mayor-resigns-accused-taking-bribes]http://bigstory.ap.org/article/charlott ... ing-bribes

Child porn charges filed against ex-state Rep. FarnhamFormer Illinois State Rep. Keith Farnham was charged today with possession of child pornography more than a month after he abruptly resigned after federal agents raided his home and state office.The federal charges alleged that Farnham, 66, of Elgin, possessed two videos depicting child pornography on a computer that was seized from his state office in Elgin in March. He is scheduled to make his initial appearance at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse in downtown Chicago on Wednesday.............Federal agents executed a search warrant at Farnham's office and residence in Elgin on March 13. Several computers and electronic storage devices were recovered that contained child pornography images, including the two charged videos, according to the complaint unsealed today.............According to a criminal complaint, homeland security agents were investigating information received from its Cyber Crimes Center that an email address was being used to trade child pornography on the Internet.Agents linked the email account to Farnham and then obtained a series of graphic instant message chats in which he wrote extensively about his desire to perform sex acts with underage girls. Those instant messages were sent between last June and January.

Not only did he engage in the downloading of child porn, but he did it on a government computer. The office computer that contained the videos was labeled "PROPERTY OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES."and he chatted with others about his sexual fantasies involving children using the email addy: kimdavid5582 <=I bet kim and david are happy. :roll:
