|Rep. Bill Shuster got the money shot from a lobbyist and the media is concerned about his ethics.|
There's a whole lot of loving going on in the city of Altoona, PA.
Again, I don't give a rats ass about what goes on in the private lives of politicians. Why the junk food media made this a story is the fact that a powerful Republican lawmaker who has the power to issue funds to roads is caught up in an affair with a lobbyist.
The lobbyist is a part of a growing field of "I'll give you head" if you give me "$$$$$".
The lawmaker Republican Bill Shuster (R-PA) admits to having a relationship with a lobbyist.
He admits to cheating on Rebecca, his wife of 20 years.
According to the Cook Partisan Voting Index, Shuster represents the the 9th Congressional District. It was the most Republican district in Pennsylvania (and the Industrial Midwest), then with a score of R +17. Redistricting slightly increased the number Democrats in the district, with the addition of majority-Democratic Fayette County as well as the some of the Democratic portions of Washington County.
The price of gerrymandering. The Democrats can win the cities of Altoona, State College and Johnstown but fail at winning the district because it's strongly Republican.
Shuster has been resting comfortably in this district. For that he was promoted to be the chairman of House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
According to the insiders, he's a known player around the Capitol. He charms them ladies. All the while playing the game on his wife and children.
He finally tells the world that he's in love.
He's in love with his lobbyist. Shelley Rubino a former Democratic political operative now works at Airlines for America, a trade association for the major U.S. airlines.
|Shuster and his mistress are circled. Politico broke the news of the improper and unethical relationship.|
The FAA is trying to impose strong regulations on airlines and Shuster and his Republican friends are not willing to allow it to happen.
The Politico broke the story and now the junk food media is wondering did Weeper John Boehner (R-OH) know about this relationship?
Paging Melanie Sloan of Citizens for Responsible Ethics in Washington. We got another one!
|I-99 is the Bud Shuster Freeway.|
Papa Shuster was a major player in Pennsylvania politics. As a lawmaker, Papa Bud was the guy who advocated a lot of pork and beans in Altoona, Johnstown and State College.
He managed to turn U.S. 220 into Interstate 99. The highway is being worked on from New York and it will end at its current terminus in Bedford near the PA Turnpike (Interstate 70 and 76). If it's possible Interstate 99 will continue into West Virginia, Virginia and end near Greensboro, NC.
Papa Shuster resigned from office after the FBI was looking into political corruption. He bounced before he could be served the papers. When he left, his son Lil' Bill got into the act and been in the Congress for over a decade.
Lil' Bill is a big supporter of the Interstate 69/Pan American Highway (aka NAFTA Superhighway).
The Republican Congress is willing to shelve out millions to the states of Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas. The highway will continue from its former terminus in Indianapolis and head towards Texas.
In twenty years, Interstate 69 will connect Canada to Mexico. The Interstate will start from Port Huron, MI and end in three points, Brownsville (I-69E), the cities McAllen and Pharr (I-69C), and Laredo, Texas (I-69W).
|I-69 will travel from Michigan to Texas.|
Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is indicted on political corruption. He was involved in a scandal involving his friend who lobbied for Medicare benefits. Menendez also was involved in a sex scandal with underage Dominican Republic prostitutes. He was cleared of any involvement.
Aaron Schock, former U.S. Rep. from Illinois resigned after it was revealed he was spending like sailor and hiding his debts. Schock was a power broker in their Republican 2010 and 2014 victories. Schock's departure leaves Republican governor Bruce Bruner a crucial spot to be filled.
Michael Grim, former U.S. Rep from New York resigned after being reelected. He was indicted by the Department of Justice for taking bribes and tax evasion. The Republicans hope to retain the seat. It's in Staten Island, the only conservative part of New York City.
This clown Shuster released a video criticizing the president. He claims that the president shut down the coal mines and processing plants because of the EPA's regulations.
