As long as the Republicans are in control of the House of Representatives, they will keep trying to privatize government services like the Post Office and Social Security. 
The only way to stop them is to Vote Them Out.

A federal jury Thursday found former Virginia governor Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, guilty of public corruption — sending a message that they believed the couple sold the office once occupied by Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson to a free spending Richmond businessman for golf outings, lavish vacations and $120,000 in sweetheart loans.

After three days of deliberations, the seven men and five women who heard weeks of gripping testimony about the McDonnells’ alleged misdeeds acquitted the couple of several charges pending against them—but nevertheless found that they lent the prestige of the governor’s office to Jonnie R. Williams Sr. in a nefarious exchange for his largesse.

The verdict means that Robert McDonnell, who was already the first governor in Virginia history to be charged with a crime, now he holds an even more unwanted distinction: the first ever to be convicted of one. He and his wife face decades in federal prison, though their actual sentence will probably fall well short of that.

The former governor was convicted of 11 corruption-related counts pending against him, though acquitted of lying on loan documents. The former first lady was convicted of eight corruption-related charges, along with obstruction of justice. Maureen McDonnell was acquitted of lying on a loan document.

Up next: Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann…all Nixonian style Republicans and under indictment or (pending) investigation for being corrupt to the core

Gov. Deal appointed only 5 women and 1 African-American out of 51 spots on the state’s top boards. He defended his appointments by saying he only likes to appoint people he knows and has confidence in. Gov. Deal, this is 2014, not 1964. Georgia deserves diverse representation on our top boards.
