Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, April 13, 2018

Steve Stockman, a Republican former congressman from Texas, has been convicted of defrauding two conservative mega-donors and funneling their $1.25 million into personal and campaign expenses as part of what prosecutors have described as a "white collar crime spree." A jury in federal court in Houston ruled Thursday afternoon that Stockman is guilty of all but one of the 24 felonies he was charged with last March. After about 16 hours of deliberations over three days, the 12-person panel only declined to convict on one of four counts of wire fraud.

Oh my. He's guilty of running his campaign... like a business.

Republicans sure love that talking point. Maybe with Trump they are finally learning why it's such a dumb idea. Ha!

Only a Clinton can get away with that stuff. You know, traditional values and all that...

At least he didn't "off" anyone to get the money...

Even Texans rate their state just one lone star.

The only redeeming feature of this story is that he stole from other teaschmucks.

#8 | Posted by 726, This is Texas, we don't give a damn who the jerk is or what he has or what his office was or is. We convict the guilty and we punish them ruthlessly. We lead the nation in plea bargains for a reason. We have the largest prison population in the nation for another. We run this place said no prisoner in the TDC ever.

You also don't care if innocent people get convicted; you cheer their execution all the same.

"Edward E. Graf Jr. is eligible for mandatory release from prison, likely to come within 30 days of his return to the facility, a parole expert said Wednesday.

Graf knew this when he pleaded guilty to killing his two adopted stepsons Tuesday, minutes before a jury could inform the court that it had convicted him on two counts of murder.

Punish them toothlessly.
