$1600/mo is hardly a high-priced luxury apt., and he's paying for it. What's the issue?

How do you know he's paying for it?

It is possible that he could be living there rent free.

It doesn't look good.

And it doesn't smell good. It presents the appearance of impropriety. It presents the appearance of a lack of concern for propriety. If there is more to this than mere appearance remains to be seen.

I wonder if he'll be handing out checks for his landlord while on the House floor.

And by the way, the Bush Administration has already raked in a lot more bucks from "sleepovers" than the Clinton Administration ever did.

Ed, then we had those State dinners under Clinton. An invitation usually cost a donation of at least $50,000. With some, there were so many guests that they put up tents on the lawn to hold them.

In what way is it a bribe?

The guy's renting an apartment. What's the problem with that?

This is a complete non-issue.

What's wrong with getting $19,200/year as a bribe?

I think that's quite good and that would be tax free.

When you also start naming the Democrats involved in bribes we can talk again! This is not all one sided ya know? The problem you have here is that there is nothing to even suggest he has done anything illegal! Except what resides in your head! I have to ask again, why on earth do you even care what we do in the USA? It has been obvious from day one that you don't like anything about the USA so why not stay out of something that has no effect on you whatsoever?

U.S. to go high-tech at border

Washington ? The United States will deploy high-tech safety measures at the Canadian border, said Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, who suggested a security wall would only make sense if a lot of people were sneaking into the country from a big city.

Mr. Chertoff said he has no knowledge of any problem like that. But he didn't entirely discount the notion Thursday of a northern security fence, an idea condemned as ridiculous by business groups and dismissed as impractical by the previous Canadian government.
