IDIOCRACY IS REAL: MULTIPLE LAWMAKERS RE-ELECTED DESPITE FACING CORRUPTION AND CRIMINAL CHARGES

US voters re-elect lawmakers facing criminal indictments & corruption charges, because why not?

Embarrassing social media photos could easily sink a congressional campaign, but several lawmakers have shown that you can be charged with corruption and embezzlement and still win re-election.
American voters took partisan politics to a whole new level on Tuesday, after Republican congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins – both of whom face federal indictments for crimes including embezzlement and securities fraud – won re-election. As long as the Democrats don’t win, right?

Another big takeaway tonight: Being under federal indictment is no bar to winning re-election! Just ask Chris Collins and Duncan Hunter. #Midterms2018

Hunter, a five-term congressman from California, was charged along with his wife in August of misusing campaign funds totaling more than $250,000.

The Hunter household found remarkably creative ways to spend the embezzled cash – even using the funds to purchase a $600 airline ticket for their pet rabbit. The congressman also used the money to reportedly carry out extramarital affairs and to take vacations to Hawaii, London, and Las Vegas. On top of that – he put the blame on his wife.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All I can think of, is the marvelous one-liner by the comedian Ron White: "You can't fix stupid!"

The intellectual acumen of people who continue to vote for liars, thieves, and monsters, indicates to me that they have chosen precisely the reflection of their own deficits they want to see in in office.
