Above the Law


Remember when freaky deeky former New York Gov., Elliot Spitzer was forced to resign because it was revealed that he was paying for prostitution services? Well if you thought he was going to jail for violating the law, you were incorrect. The Department of Justice will not pursue criminal charges against Spitzer. Except for cases of child prostitution, there is no policy in place for the DOJ to prosecute "johns" who buy women from pimps. Never mind that he broke New York's anti-trafficking law or the fact that transporting women across state lines for prostitution violates the Mann Act..

Then we have Alaskan Sen. Ted Stevens. This guy was just found guilty on SEVEN counts of failing to report gifts on his financial disclosure forms. Yet as of today he holds a lead in the Alaskan Senate election and could become the first ever convicted felon elected to the U.S. Senate.

How in the hell are these dudes getting away with this bull? Ron Isley and Wesley Snipes didn't get away with their unpaid taxes but Ted Stevens can accept over a quarter-million dollars worth of gifts and get re-elected to the Senate? Elliot Spitzer was illegally buying prostitution services but they got Kwame Kilpatrick locked because he cheated with a regular chick? If regular dudes would go to jail for it, then these clowns should too.

  1. In one of Kwame Kilpatrick's speeches he did say that this was a modern day lynching and as we all know folks have gotten away with murder but still hold their positions and life styles. I'ts not right!!!!!!
