Republicans Party With Hookers & Blow



After John McSame says that events will be scaled down to only the essential due to Hurricane Gustav, Republicans decide that the following are essential: parties thrown by lobbyists, some with pink boas, and one with "Hookers & Blow."

Hey, csm, why not, in fairness, post the Brian Ross report of the Democrats and their lobbyists mentioned at the beginning of this video? Probably was a pretty good party too, I'll bet.

csm said...

Well, for a number of reasons. First of all, it didn't happen during Hurricane Gustav and the party's nominee did not ask for the parties the week of the convention to be toned down.

And also because I have no interest in being fair.

BAWDYSCOT said...

Well at least your honest.

A son and a brother of Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. (D-Del.) are accused in two lawsuits of defrauding a former business partner and an investor of millions of dollars in a hedge fund deal that went sour, court records show.

The Democratic vice presidential candidate's son Hunter, 38, and brother James, 59, assert instead that their former partner defrauded them by misrepresenting his experience in the hedge fund industry and recommending that they hire a lawyer with felony convictions.

The legal actions have been playing out in New York State Supreme Court since 2007, and they focus on Hunter and James Biden's involvement in Paradigm Companies LLC, a hedge fund group. Hunter Biden, a Washington lobbyist, briefly served as president of the firm.

A lawsuit filed by their former partner Anthony Lotito Jr. asserts in court papers that the deal was crafted to get Hunter Biden out of lobbying because his father was concerned about the impact it would have on his bid for the White House. Biden was running for the Democratic nomination at the time the suit was filed.

Hunter Biden was made president with an annual salary of $1.2 million, despite his inexperience in the hedge fund industry, the lawsuit said. Before that, he had been part of the Washington law firm Oldaker, Biden & Belair, which earned $1.76 million in lobbying revenue in the first half of 2006, according to Congressional Quarterly's CQ MoneyLine. One of its biggest clients is the National Association of Shareholder and Consumer Attorneys, a District-based group representing law firms specializing in investment and corporate law.

Hunter Biden is one of many children and relatives of prominent members of Congress who have made their careers as lobbyists. He returned to lobbying after less than a year with Paradigm.

Lotito's lawsuit alleges that James Biden called him in January 2006 to arrange a job for Hunter Biden. It says James Biden told him that his brother (Sen. Biden) "was concerned with the impact that Hunter's lobbying activities might have on his expected campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination," and, "Biden told Lotito that, in light of these concerns, his brother had asked him to seek Lotito's assistance in finding employment for Hunter in a non-lobbying capacity."

Click How can Biden serve as VP with these family issues?

hey mouse, lemme see if i've got this straight.

a candidates children/family are clearly off limits when the candidate is republican, but when they're democrats, all rules go out the window?

btw, have you noticed that sarah palin is under investigation? you have? yet that doesn't bother you as much as what's going on in biden's family's life?

tell me again how you're above the partisan fray. i could use a good chuckle.

Just more of mouse's general ass-holiness!

I dunno "Hookers and Blow" is a pretty cool name for a band. Maybe the Reps are really trying to change their image. Evangelical leaders and hookers aren't much of a change, but the nose candy just might get them closer to God.
