i don't get this. didn't folks notice that this guy is a governor - a professional criminal? it's really either disingenuous or naive to be surprised or outraged by something like this. as has been stated here numerous times, we know that politicians are liars, thieves and generally ethically-challenged individuals. so why would one be caught off guard by the actions of this one? the far more interesting question is why the establishment turned on him.
this is always the most interesting question to me, when a politician gets arrested. because virtually all politicians are crooked to some extent, why did he get outed? whose political toes did he step on?
folks, don't be surprised when birds fly, the sun rises and sets, or politicians are crooked. it's the nature of the beast.
