McDonnell v. United States is at the Supreme Court TODAY! Please Pray!

I know many readers might disagree but I want to encourage all to pray that former Governor Bob McDonnell’s convictions be overturned.  He might be extremely foolish but he is NOT a crook.  There will be more of these prosecutions if McDonnell loses.

Please join me in prayer that the Court will decide this right.

  1. Oh please Sandy. If we put all of the serving politicians in jail that have violated the public trust you would be lucky to hack 15% left. This is one group that seldom is prosecuted for wrong doing. You must realize that at best we have two sets of laws, one for the people and one for the political class. Now it is true the charges against McDonald do not come close to those of Hilliary and many more. Because his was not as serious as many others then we should be fair and give him some special treatment. Having worked for many years in the criminal justice system seldom was someone incarcerated where their past history did not include many past lawless activities. In McDonald case there just happened to be someone willing to talk. Had McDonald survived that little lnfraction how many more would he have committed and how many more existed. I have seen many of these politicians and they truly make a used car salesman look like Mother Teresa. This guy would sell his mother for personal gain. He and his wife’s personalities are glaring examples of why the public is so angry at the political class.

  2. FED UP with Crony Politicians says:

    Mr. Sanders:

    Former REPUBLICAN Speaker of the HOUSE Dennis Hastert from Rockford IL was convicted yesterday of being a pedophile as a gym coach and paying “blackmail Money.” He went to Congress with a net worth of less than $40,000 and left Washington a MULTI MILLIONAIRE back in the day when Congressmen had to keep up 2 residences.

    Former REPUBLICAN Illinois Governor George Ryan went to FEDERAL PRISON for selling drivers licenses to ILLEGALS in ILLINOIS who KILLED PEOPLE. Couldn’t read English driving 18 Wheelers on the interstates.


    Former DEMOCRATIC ILLINOIS Governor Rod Blagoevich went to prison NOT FOR SELLING Illinois US SENATOR BARACK OBAMA’s SENATE SEAT to Jesse Jackson Jr BUT FOR PEDDLING INFLUENCE and attempting to SELL THE SENATE SEAT to Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.

    People are FED UP, Mr. Sanders and although it is kind for you to pray for lenience,
    It’s time to make examples of them by PROSECUTING THEM. If YOU had been convicted YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN SENTENCED by now and would be in the BIG HOUSE.

    Two sets of Justice in this country? One for the privileged and one for the poor guy?

      Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell’s conviction will be the reason Democrat Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam waltzes into the Governor’s mansion in 2017 in a sweeping victory. Can you picture the Democratic TV Ads running in your head right now? and a Republican majority House of Delegates and Senate who refuse to address ethics reform in a General Assembly that doesn’t have the morals God gave an Alley Cat.

      That is why McDonnell should go to prison. Sacrificial Lamb for the future of the GOP.


    IL: the state where most of its former governors now make license plates.
    VA next? McDonnell, then McCauliffe?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
