One word describes them all: Hypocrites.
The Mayor of Charlotte, N.C. Democrat Patrick Cannon submitted his resignation after he was arrested by the FBI for allegedly accepting $48,000 in bribes in exchange for the use of his official position.
In Rhode Island, Democrat Gordon Fox, Speaker of the House, resigned after the FBI and agents from the IRS, the U.S. attorney's office and the state police raided both his home and his office.
A state senator in California, Democrat Leland Yee, a staunch supporter of gun-control legislation, was arrested by the FBI and charged with conspiracy to purchase millions of dollars of illegal firearms from the Philippines to be resold in the U.S. in exchange for contributions to his election campaign. As reported by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms:
BELLEVUE, WA – Criminal charges announced in San Francisco federal court Wednesday afternoon against anti-gun California State Sen. Leland Yee and several others shows the contemptible nature of the gun prohibition movement, because among the allegations is one that he was involved in a conspiracy to traffic firearms, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
“If these allegations are true,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States.”
The complaint alleges that Sen. Lee conspired with two other men, identified as Keith Jackson, a political consultant, and Dr. Wilson Sy Lim, to traffic in firearms. “The 137-page complaint is simply staggering,” Gottlieb added. “Here’s a prominent anti-gun Democrat state senator allegedly involved in a gun trafficking scheme, among other alleged crimes that include wire fraud and dealing firearms without a license. And this guy has spent a considerable amount of energy in the California legislature trying to deny law-abiding Californians of their gun rights.”
The gun trafficking scheme allegedly involved activities in the Philippines, with the cash to be broken up into “legitimate campaign donations,” according to the court documents.
“It is hard to fathom this kind of activity on a scale as massive as these court documents allege,” Gottlieb said. “If Sen. Yee and his fellow defendants are convicted, they’re going to wind up in one of the biggest gun-free zones in the country, a federal prison.”
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at www.ccrkba.org or by email to InformationRequest@ccrkba.org.
Now, many Democrats who supported, praised and voted for the so-called Affordable Care Act, commonly called ObamaCare, which resulted in millions of Americans receiving cancellation notices from their health care insurers, many of whom were facing life-threatening illnesses, have now become worried that their actions may jeopardize their chances for reelection in November.
Nancy Pelosi, probably the most reviled Democrat in Congress, joined the ranks of Hypocrite of the Year when she is expected to receive The Margaret Sanger Award from the Planned Parenthood Federation. House Minority Leader Pelosi, who is Catholic, has always been a staunch supporter of abortion rights and Planned Parenthood, in direct opposition of the teachings of the Catholic Church. The award is named after Margaret Sanger, who championed birth control and abortion rights along with the controversial Eugenics Program in the 1930s that called for the elimination of the unfit among the Black population in America through forced sterilization. Sanger believed Eugenics could improve human genetic stock through controlled breeding and by thwarting those with “undesirable traits” — including lower intelligence, criminality, and a history of promiscuity — from reproducing. Today, in contradiction to all the laws of logic, Nancy Pelosi enjoys overwhelming support from the African-American population in her California district. My guess is that as long as they keep getting their "free stuff" they will keep voting for the Democrats. (Above paragraph quoted in part from the Daily Caller. Read more:)
The sad, sorry fact of the matter is that all of the above have taken place within just the last two weeks. If we look a little further back we will note that the Great Leader himself, Democrat Barack Hussein Obama, along with his Democrat Attorney General Eric Holder have both announced that they will only enforce the laws they believe in. And Eric Holder has relayed that message down the ladder to the attorneys general in each of the 50 states. Thanks to the Democrat Party we are now living in a lawless land. Truly, the editors of Roget's Thesaurus must add the name Democrat to the list of synonyms for the word hypocrite.

Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood.

As the historian and moralist, who was otherwise known simply as Lord Acton, wrote in 1887:
Certainly, a party so devoid of morals, ethics and scruples deserves more scrutiny. Quoting from the NoisyRoom.net, "Ed Driscoll got it right when he said, “Think of the Democratic Party as what it really is: a criminal organization masquerading as a political party.” Indeed they are Ed and boy, have Americans made a corrupt bed to lay in." Maybe its time to take a closer look at what they are doing in the other 49 states while we still have a United States of America."Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
