Now that our local Congressman, who lives in Potomac, Maryland, Robert Wexler, is resigning his seat in Congress, we’ll have one less corrupt representative representing us here in So. Florida. Aren’t we lucky? Not only does his resignation stall an ongoing F.B.I. investigation into his business affairs, as it relates to his position as a Congressman, but it gives him an out from having to answer the corruption questions that were bound to come up during a campaign for re-election, if he chose to run. Can you believe that this Congressman has been living full-time with his family in Potomac, Maryland for over 10 years, while representing Congressional District 19 here in So. Florida? How could that happen? Does the word “chutzpah” sort of come to mind on hearing that news? It could be said that Cong. Wexler was the only Florida congressman whose family had to come down to Florida to spend their vacation. Good riddance to our “carpet bagger” Congressman!

What is in the water here in Palm Beach and Broward counties that seem to generate so much political corruption? Three recent Palm Beach County commissioners are now in prison for acts of corruption while in office (by the way, they were all Republicans). How many more are we waiting for the “next shoe to drop”? As par for the course, we have another sitting Congressman, Alcee Hastings, representing us who is an impeached former federal judge. Isn’t that just great, even if everyone deserves a second chance, but should they be representing us in Congress and making our laws?

The corrupt politicians are “poster children” for instituting term limits for the politicians on the local, county, state, and federal levels. A humorous (but sad in a way) phrase relating to this topic is – “politicians should be restricted to two terms, one in office and one in prison”. What a way to run a country!

The Wash. D.C. “landfill” is slowly reaching capacity with the likes of Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Ct.), Sen. Kent Conrad (D-ND), Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY),Rep. William Jefferson (D-La), Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-WV), Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Ca.) etc. All this after Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2006 said that now that the Democrats have gained a majority in Congress they would “drain the swamp of corruption”. How’s she ‘doin so far? If a grade was given, she’d get a “F” for her performance. Any argument?

In addition, look at the people who President Obama has appointed or has tried to appoint to his Administration. Tax cheats (ex. Tim Geithner), people with extreme radical affiliations (ex. Van Jones), and high profile lobbyists (ex. Tom Daschle, who had to withdraw), have all, or almost became, part of the “most honest administration in U.S. history”. His placing of over 30 Czars with no congressional oversight, who wield power over us citizens and who are on the government payroll, is reminiscent of how things were being done in Chicago. You could say we have “Chicago on the Potomac” and, god forbid, you criticize “The One”, you are then called a “racist”, end of argument because you are now a “bad” person in the eyes of the “politically correct” police.

I’m afraid the “Wash. D.C. landfill” is going to be overfilled to capacity by the end of Obama’s first term (let’s hope it’s just one term). Remember, you can’t polish horse manure, no matter how hard you try, it’s still horse manure, and it stinks to high heaven.

Wexler not only broke Florida’s law concerning residency, he’s continued this fraud.

Great post Chuck! Democrats do nothing but continue this “culture of corruption". These Modern Democrats are a disgrace to the Country. It seems like they hate Israel as much as their hero, Ahmadinejad

Glad to hear that "Weasel Wexler" is quitting his job as our Congressman. He was the personification of blatant hypocrisy. A perfect example of his duplicity was his campaign against "school vouchers". Besides living full-time in Maryland, he sent his own children to a Jewish private school. That was his right, but why deny the less fortunate from having the same opportunity that his children had? Do as I say not as I do was his mantra all throughout is political career. We suffer no loss from his resignation.
