    Golly, isn’t this is just one big happy family?   Wonder how long it will take all concerned to realize that we are on this planet for a finite amount of time and its a little late to think about apologies once a “loved” one is dead and gone.

      Gee, and I thought it was Aristocrats (Republicans) who were flawless beings, never in error, never ethically questionable. They sure know how to hide those income tax dodges and work those offshore accounts, etc., don’t they?

    Rosa, call Rove & Cheney Associates and learn how to do these things quietly.   You democrats are such amateurs at these sort of things.  Stick to extra-martial affairs and hoof in mouth spins and leave the complex money schemes and history re-writes to the GOP.

    Someone really wants to bury her political aspirations. I don’t want to see her run for anything ever again but it does seem like someone is keeping this in the press.

    This was written by Rosa regarding another candidate she was running against
    ………….
    Maine people expect complete openness, transparency and accountability in its government, and we must not sweep this situation under the rug and just move on.
    Let’s be clear: what the Ethics Commission uncovered is nothing short of an attempted theft of up to $1.8 million in clean election funds, money that belongs to Maine taxpayers. This is a serious violation of the public trust. While there is some consolation in the fact that the process worked in this instance and the Ethics Commission staff spotted the irregularities, it nevertheless raises serious questions about how and why this happened in the first place.
    This is a wake up call for Maine politics, which has always strived to be above board, transparent and beyond reproach. That it involves a system that was put in place to insure “clean” and honest campaign financing makes it doubly sad.
    I urge the governor to immediately appoint an outside independent counsel to fully investigate this matter so that all of these questions can be answered and we can restore confidence, integrity and trust to Maine’s elections and to state government itself.
       ………………..After the Cutler files and now these fraudulent campaign donations, I don’t know how anyone could truly believe what this woman says and stands for.She’s a lying, cheating, sneaky little woman who stole mommys money and now would just assume she be broke for her well being. WOW
