Looks like King's went 0 for 2. Kanjorski was of course for it (he had a hand in making the mess). Patrick Murphy switched his vote this time around. Glad I hedged my bets getting my MA out of state.

OINK OINK. All of the pork kings on the Hill are happy now, and we're left to pay for it.

Kanjorski, Casey, and Specter ALL need to be voted out of office.

NEPA, that's just from the massive traffic I had this week. Any time a site gets the number of hits I had (101k one day alone) someone buys the addresses that are similar.

MCAIN & THE KEATING 5

Back in the late 1980’s there was a similar banking scandal involving billions of taxpayer dollars. Scores of small thrift banks failed and the government ended up creating a special unit to buy up toxic debt and slowly over years salvage what they could and get rid of the rest.

The reason why it’s topical now isn’t just because the federal government is using a similar rescue model to bail out Wall Street but also because of presidential nominee, John McCain’s involvement both then and now.

Wrapped up in the debacle were a series of unusual meetings two years before the collapse between banking regulators and five prominent US Senators, including John McCain. The meeting was at the behest of Keating who was calling in chits to get the regulators to back off of the ill-fated Lincoln. The regulators who were present would later say how much they were intimidated by the entire proceeding and Lincoln ended up with a little more time before eventually imploding.

During that time, it also came out that the Keating Five had accepted campaign contributions from Keating topping $300,000 with McCain receiving the lion’s share. McCain had also made at least nine trips with his family at Keating's expense at a cost of over $13,000. Not all of it was reimbursed by McCain until after Lincoln was in serious trouble. And in 1985, a year before the meeting between the regulators and US Senators, McCain’s wife Cindy and his father in law invested over $350,000 in a shopping mall development with Keating.

Zen, I hope you don't mind me plugging my blog but it kind of ties in to this string of posts.
There's a nice link in my latest post that sheds some light on who's to blame.
