Culture of Corruption (Or Does That Only Apply if You Have a R Next To Your Name?)

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C (AP) . - Former Rep. Frank Ballance (D-NC) was sentenced Wednesday to four years in federal prison for conspiring to divert taxpayer money to his law firm and family through a charitable organization he helped start.

According to a 51-page indictment, Ballance channeled $2.3 million in state money from 1994 to 2003 to the nonprofit foundation he operated to help poor people fight drug and alcohol abuse

Is this more of Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s “Culture of Corruption”? Notice the lack of press coverage and attention by leading Democrats on this case. Either you are against corruption or you are not, but the letter next to the name shouldn’t play a part.
