  1. It’s about time that McDermott got what has been coming to him for so long. Problem here: He will be looked on as some kind of “hero” with the left-wing liberals, such as Russ Feingold. You can bet that Feingold will not call for his censure and/or impeachment in his daily rantings. It really wouldn’t surprise me if Feingold and his minions were to get up some sort of “legal defense fund” to help McCermott out of his mess, something similar to that fund the Clintons got ou some ten years or so ago when they were having their Whitewater troubles.

  2. Great, but where’s the punishment for the couple who were taping the conversation over a police scanner..?

    Does anyone know, did they attone for their illegal activity?

  3. Anonymous Backwards: I can’t believe that I almost agree with you, “ALMOST”. Bagdad Jim should have been JAILED back in 1997 for this. The Martins will be getting there due soon for this CRIME. But I’m sure the Democratic machine is hiding the Martins. Hell those NUT CASES in KEIV COUNTY would just send a clone of MCDERMOTT back to Washington DC.

  4. What’s to disagree with? He knowingly leaked information, in violation of the law, which was obtained by illegal means.

    Both him and his suppliers should expect to pay their due.

    Maybe they felt breaking the law was the right thing to do, however they shouldn’t expect a free pass nor make excuses or apologies.

  5. Anonymous Backwards: Why your not a good Socialist Communist. You should be circling the wagons and
    standing in Solidarity with your brethern MCDERMOTT and the Beloved “MARTINS”. Your buds won’t like you to much.

    Ps Some Authority’s still want to talk to the “MARTINS”. Do you or anyone at portland.indymedia.org
    know where their at?????

    Where their “what” is at? Ohhhh, silly me, did you mean they’re?

    I love you guys, so predictable…when you don’t have an argument, you try to pigeonhole, demonize, associate, or just plain make s**t up…way to go.

  7. You are right, Klatu. The voters of “Kiev” County will send a McDermott clone back to DC to take his place. And the clone will be voted in by all those dead voters up there. And the results will be recounted 3 or 4 times until they get him in.

    And anonymous backward is still up to his inane, backward-thinking (hence the name) rantings that no one really can or should take seriously.

    This is backward thinking?

    He knowingly leaked information, in violation of the law, which was obtained by illegal means.

    Why is it so hard to accept I might agree with you on something…?
