Donkey Cons: Behind the Book ^

Donkey Cons: Behind the Book

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and her friends are squawking a lot these days about how Democrats will win control of Congress in 2006 by campaigning against a Republican “culture of corruption.” But Nancy has a problem: Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime, and Corruption in the Democratic Party proves that the Democrats are lying.

Donkey Cons was conceived more than two years ago, when no one outside Washington had heard of a lobbyist named Jack Abramoff. How? As journalists who scour state and local news every day, we noticed something: It seems almost any crime can be excused or ignored as long as the perpetrator is a Democrat:

• A married Democratic mayor can be caught smoking crack cocaine with a prostitute and, even after he is convicted and sentenced to prison, get reelected.

• A married Democratic senator who leaves a party with a single young woman and gets into a drunk-driving accident that kills her does not merely avoid jail time, but retains his Senate seat and indeed goes on to become one of the most powerful politicians in his party.

• The entire Democratic Party is caught accepting millions in illegal foreign campaign donations and Chinagate, the biggest influence-peddling scandal in U.S. history, morphs into a bipartisan referendum on campaign finance reform!

Being a Democrat is often like holding the “get out of jail free” card. And this has been going on for more than 200 years.

When we conceived the idea for this book, we researched the topic and were surprised to find that no book like it had ever been written. There were plenty of ideological attacks on this or that aspect of liberalism, and lots of books about this or that wrongdoing of the Clinton administration.

But no one had ever tried to fit all the scandals of the Democratic Party into a single book. Once we started doing it, we quickly discovered why. The problem wasn’t a shortage of Democratic cheats and crooks, but an astounding abundance of them—a veritable cornucopia of corruption, a direct line of scandal all the way back to the 1700s.

After just a few days of digging up Democratic scoundrels, it began to appear that the main difference between the Democrats and the Gambino mob is that Democrats qualify for federal matching funds.

Here are a few of the amazing stories we discovered:

• The forgotten role of the killer and traitor Aaron Burr in founding the Democratic Party and turning a New York social club into the most powerful and enduring political machine in American history, Tammany Hall.

• How gangsters wielded influence over the Democratic Party for much of the twentieth century, helping to elect three of the past six Democratic presidents.

• The brazen corruption of big-city Democrats—from Chicago to Atlanta to Philadelphia to New Orleans to Detroit—who preside over empires of graft and fraud while their policies bring nightmares of crime and squalor to the inner-city poor who are among the Democratic Party’s most loyal supporters.

• That Democrats have, since the party's founding, routinely used election fraud to win -- and continue to do so today.

Nancy Pelosi's "culture of corruption" canard is a straight-up lie -- and Donkey Cons proves it. The fact is that according to Congress's own records, congressional Democrats over the past 25 years are up to three times as corrupt as Republicans.

If Democrats try to make “corruption” the central issue of their 2006 campaign, they’ll surely lose—and we’ll probably sell a lot more books.

Come to think of it…Hey, Nancy: You go, girl!

Democrats Have Become the Party of “Sex, Crime, and Corruption”
March 27, 2006 10:28 PM EST

Washington, DC – Political scandals seem to have become the norm in Washington DC. From Jack Abramoff to President Clinton and Monica Lewinski, the scandals do not appear to follow the party lines – at least on the surface. But a closer look at the history of political scandal reveals something completely different.
In their new book, DONKEY CONS: Sex, Crime, and Corruption in the Democratic Party veteran reporters Lynne Vincent and Robert Stacey McCain, discover that the truth lies in the history.

From bribery and kickbacks to sex scandals, espionage, terrorism, and rape, DONKEY CONS chronicles, for the first time, the panorama of Democratic crime and corruption. Vincent and McCain have generated a truly impressive retrospective compilation of incidents and scandal that clearly demonstrates the breadth of the problem and leaves the reader wondering what comes next.

Thoroughly researched, using anecdotes and intimate details, this book shows the serial corruption within the Clinton presidency wasn’t an anomaly, but the logical legacy of the modern Democratic ethos. As author McCain says, “The Democratic Party is like the Gambino mob with matching federal funds.”

As the 2006 election season approaches, DONKEY CONS is not only a look at what the Democratic Party has become, it is a glimpse into the future and an invaluable resource for every American voter.

Lynn Vincent is features editor at World Magazine, where she covers news, politics, and current events. She also teaches in the World Journalism Institute. Vincent resides in San Diego, California.

Robert Stacy McCain is an assistant national editor for the Washington Times. His series of columns on the National Standards for U.S. History won the George Washington Medal from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge. McCain resides in Washington, D.C.

If Dems win seats this year, it will not be this "culture of corruption" crap that does it. It will be the conservative base staying home rather than - once again - vote for Republicans who are supporting this treason of surrendering to the Hispanic invasion. If this crap passes, any Republican who votes for it is out of office. Period.

Looks like we may have no choice but to cut off our nose to spite our face! Staying home is the same as voting for the RAT, and sending a message could cost us an acceleration of the slide towards socialism.

The "vote" will not solve the problem either way. Their law will be imposed on the people at the point of very large guns.

All it took was JFKerry to salute his base and that was ammunition for Republicans to review his military past.

"Culture of Corruption" is ammunition enough for 2006.

Feed the public all the data it can devour.

Make this available on the Internet the same way Kerry's shame was publicized and put out on the Internet.

We already have intel files available, free for the public to translate Hussein's will to wage war. We should also have the historical files for the Culture of Corruption.
