TOM REYNOLDS: STILL SCUM, STILL SUCKING
you were born yesterday, you might not know there is
a system of semi-legal bribery running the country called Congress.
According to a new report released today by Public Citizen,
lobbyists and their political action committees (PACs) have
contributed at least $103.1 million to members of Congress since
shows that one of the fattest pigs at the trough is local congressional
cretin Tom Reynolds (page 19 of the report, he's number 11).
Reynolds is the successor to now lobbyist Bill Paxon's congressional
seat. Guess what? Paxon and his politically connected wife (and
also ex-congressperson) Susan Molinari are some of the largest
paymasters (page 20 of the report, they're number 33).
Citizen report “is the first comprehensive effort to match
names of lobbyists with Federal Election Commission campaign
contribution data. The result provides details about the biggest
lobbyist contributors and congressional recipients of campaign
largesse and furnishes a contribution total nearly double the
numbers reveal the seamier side of Washington’s congressional
decision-making,” said Joan Claybrook, president of Public
Citizen. “Such enormous sums buy commensurate access,
shutting most Americans out of the process and skewing legislation
and budget allocation.”
campaign contributions lobbyists make from their own checkbooks,
while significant, are just a fraction of the equation,”
said Claybrook. “This report also reveals that top lobbyist
contributors coordinate lucrative fund-raisers for the lawmakers
they hope to influence and bring in a steady stream of contributions
from their corporate clients far greater than they alone give.”
what were Paxon and Molinari doing in March of this year? They
were hosting a Texas primary night fundraiser for Tom DeLay.
Delay was facing three opponents in the Republican primary.
For the first time in the 22 years he's held office, he was
up against a serious challenge after being forced out of his
job as House majority leader amid corruption and campaign finance
scandals. The event raised money for DeLay's reelection campaign.
Delay won easily and we're certain he, Paxon, Molinari and their
close ally Reynolds had a good laugh at the expense of their
go down the memory hole so quickly with a subservient, PR-oriented
press that you may not recall Paxon resigned his seat under
very odd circumstances. Paxon was reportedly the gay lover of
Sandy Hume, the son of Fox News android Brit Hume, and was blackmailed
into resigning by majority leader Dick Armey after Hume's suicide
brought their homosexual relationship to light.
most stories that cast a negative light on our overlords, this
one got no play, even though it was reported that Paxon and
Hume attended a Republican Party fundraiser together the night
before Hume's suicide. It was also reported that, "years
ago, at a conference of gay SUNY students, an activist bragged
about sleeping with Paxon, then a state legislator." Paxon's
wife Susan Molinari is alleged to have had a long relationship
with a female and Paxon and Hume had "angry public words"
at the fundraiser before Hume killed himself, and The Hill,
Hume's employer, got calls from the New York Times, the Washington
Post, Newsweek and Time asking about the connection between
Paxon and Hume.
Paxon, Molinari and Reynolds are the people that matter in this
country. They are hypocritical swine who wield tremendous power
over our lives while exploiting voters’ basest racist
and homophobic tendencies. What they do or say means little
as long as they dutifully fulfill their role as scam artists
for the corporate takeover of government.
It should be noted that vile Democratic queen Hillary Clinton
is number two on the list among Senators. Unlike many, we’re
not going to pretend the Democrats are squeaky clean. The issue
here is not liberal vs. conservative, it’s honesty vs.
chicanery. With the current scandals in the press involving
Jack Abramoff, William Jefferson, Bob Ney, Tom Delay and Randall
Cunningham, it’s the season for voters to demand accountability
of their elected officials. When are we going to get sick of
these bottom-feeding prostitutes controlling our lives? When
will we do something about it? When will Reynolds finally lose
