In Memoriam; Jack Murtha. Dead at age 77. Corrupt to the End

My condolences go out to his family and friends. I appreciate his service in Viet Nam. But it is sad to see how corrupt a man can get. Here in the CSPAN video below was Murtha at his best, taking a voice vote on a bill in his committee, hearing the committee's "no" votes easily outnumber the "yes" votes, and then throwing his gavel down to pass the vote off as a "yes".

You didn't think it could be this bad in Congress, did you? See, the problem was; the Committee voted "no", and Murtha single-handedly pushed the bill through as a "yes" anyway. Democracy? Republic? That is neither. I'll leave it to you to decide what it is.



Or perhaps this video of Murtha negotiating a bribe is more appropriate at this time.
