Tennessee Rep. Scott DesJarlais, the anti-abortion Republican physician accused of encouraging his wife and mistress to have multiple abortions, raised just $39,000 in the second quarter, according to his most recent report to the Federal Election Commission. It’s a paltry sum for an incumbent member and signals more trouble for his re-election prospects in 2014.I'm sure everyone is asking the same question...how did this guy even get $39,000?
Maybe one of his fellow dumb, venal and hypocritical departing kleptomaniacs helped?
Javier Sanchez, a former senior legislative assistant to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., has been arrested in connection with a string of thefts in the Rayburn House Office Building, Fox News has learned.What a shock, huh? Michele Bachmann connected to a theft...oh, sorry I mean FoxNews learning something.
