Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, July 03, 2014

New York State Sen. Thomas W. Libous, a Republican with a nose for deal-making, ascended to become one of the most powerful lawmakers in the capital and forged a close bond with a fellow political tactician, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, despite their partisan differences. But on Tuesday, Libous was indicted with his son Matthew on charges that the senator lied to federal agents and his son filed false tax returns.

Not a deflection, if you could read, both parties are in the post I made but you decide if bribery is more egregious than lying to Federal agents.

You must have ADHD. You're incapable of focusing on the topic of a thread.

Top to bottom, the entire Judiciary in New York is corrupt with outcomes for sale to the highest bidder and woah be unto poor accused defendants.

Paneo, when you have to go back to 2013 to reference a story which has been posted 2 days ago and has no connection to this story, rest assured, YOU ARE DEFLECTING.

But, he is not.

So perhaps he thought he was in a Fox News studio where it is perfectly ok to lie to the American People.

Until the political elites of both Parties are sentenced and imprisoned for 10 years at hard labor for corruption, it means nothing.

because a leftist posting a thread about a republican lying is just plain silly with this president still in office, that's why.

"We report, you decide".

Aflac, why don't you spend less time whining about Obama and more time proving that your namesake didn't lie about those pesky Iraqi WMD and wasted 4000 American lives for no reason? You and FOXNEWS were huge fans of, and pimps for, this war, so man up and get the proof. Hannity is probably chomping at the bit to go with you.

**** A Senator didn't know better than to NEVER EVER Talk to the FBI? Something smells about this story!
