Alan Mollohan, long time democratic congressman, is gone baby gone. He lost in his primary bid for re-election to Mike Oliverio. Oh, and what great guy he has been.
Let's see, it starts out with him being the "successor" to his father's seat. He has been serving in Congress since 1982.
He has run unopposed 7 times.
He is ranked the most 24th richest in congress, and he was not all that wealthy when he started out.
The justice department has investigated him, he has a 500 page ethics compliant filed against him, the fbi has looked into his disclosure forms, in 2009 CREW has him as one of the most 15 corrupt politicians serving in Washington. Several newspapers have investigated his real estate holdings, at one time he was the head of the ethics committee; but Nanny Pelosi asked him to step down.
Hmm, could it be because he seems to have so many ethical issues himself?
This man seems to be yet another corrupt and entrenched politician who has increased his own wealth while he is spending our money like a druken sailor.
Good riddens, Congressman Mollohan - it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
