Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Good Night and Thank You

For God's sake, get out!
Yes, he was smarmy self-righteous and arrogant, but as attorney general he took on Wall Street when no one else would, and as governor he faded the heat and approved the St. Regis Mohawk Casino, against some of his early anti-Indian rhetoric. Nevertheless, there's already going to be enough fall-out from this idiotic self-immolation, if for no other reason than it allows the GOP to deflect attention from their own morally bankrupt, whoremongering hypocrites. Is it a double standard, especially considering how fast the Vitter scandal dropped off the MSM radar? Sure, but shouldn't Democrats be better than Republicans? Shouldn't we at least demand that our leaders not flagrantly break the law? Hit the road, governor. You have no one to blame but yourself. Don't let the doorknob hit you in the ass on the way out.

I'm mildly curious if any of this has Rudy Giuliani thinking of running for governor next time around. I guess it will depend on how will the new governor performs.

Glad this was over quickly. I have not read the full story, but I sure hope he didn't manage to "negotiate" any sort of successful attempt to escape justice.

Pataki and this guy... They just don't make NY governors like Mario Cuomo anymore.

(For a contrast, see the Detroit mayor scandal, in full flower right now. The mayor was caught in a hush-hush matter of diverting $9 million in city funds as shush money to pay some people to be quiet. Even now, he is diverting city taxpayer dollars to pay attorneys to lie to the public and investigators. He insists he will not give up the fight to stay in office.)

Rudy campaigning as someone to restore moral dignity to the office? The same guy who put a walk0in humidor in his emergency command center along with a tricked-out love pad for his girlfriend? Yeah, I'm thinking not.
The Detroit mayor scandal is yet more proof of what I always say, the cover-up is worse than the crime.
