My friend R. Stacy McCain wrote a book a few years ago called Donkey Cons, all about the criminal nature of Democratic Party politicians. (And yes, he acknowledged that corrupt Republican politicians exist, but demonstrated that they are relatively rare by comparison.) The latest example, from April 12, 2012 CBS St. Louis:
Update: Former Gov. Roger Wilson Pleads Guilty
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A federal grand jury indicts former Missouri Governor Roger Wilson and St. Louis attorney Ed Griesedieck in connection with their handling of a campaign contribution to the Missouri Democratic party. Both men face one misdemeanor count of misappropriation from an insurer in connection with contributions totaling $8,000 made to the Missouri Democratic party in 2009.
Two separate donations of $5,000 and $3,000 were allegedly made from the law firm of Herzog Crebs, where Griesedieck was serving as managing partner, to Governor Nixon payable to the Missouri Democratic Party. Herzog Crebs then allegedly billed Missouri Employers Mutual Insurance, where Wilson was serving as President and CEO, to recoup the money as a “cost advance,” making it appear as if the bill was for legal work. Wilson allegedly paid back $3,000 of the total, leaving the insurance company to reimburse the remaining $5,000 to the law firm.Last month, from March 28, 2012 The Daily Beast:
