Jesus always bets on black

March 28, 2006
A Texas prosecutor rejected a request by watchdog groups to investigate whether Christian activist Ralph Reed violated lobbying-registration laws, removing a potential headache for Reed in his campaign for lieutenant governor of Georgia.

Travis County Attorney David Escamilla cited a two-year statute of limitations on misdemeanors. Which in English means: it’s not that he didn’t do something unbelievably corrupt, it’s just that too much time has past to nail this gigantic self-righteous pile of slime.

Some of you might know Ralph Reed as the former director of the Christian Coalition. During that time he made opposition to gambling a major plank in his "family values" agenda, calling gambling "a cancer on the American body politic" that was "stealing food from the mouths of children."

However, a federal investigation into lobbying abuses connected to gambling on Indian reservations has unearthed evidence that Reed was surreptitiously working for an Indian tribe with a large casino it sought to protect--and that Reed was paid with funds laundered through two firms to try to keep his lucrative involvement secret.

After leaving the Christian Coalition, Reed is famous for being a highly paid lobbyist for Enron. Then he went on to help smear John McCain during the South Carolina primary. Now he is running for office himself, which goes to show one thing. The only thing that can end a career in politics is being caught with a dead girl or a live boy.

Did I mention that Reed is a steaming pile of hypocritical dog crap?
