    "How to ruin your political career in 10 minutes."

    http://www.sfgate.com//cgi-bin/artic...417EDT0629.DTL

    Unaware that a live microphone was broadcasting their words around the Capitol, Assembly Democrats meeting behind closed doors debated prolonging California's budget crisis for political gain.
    It makes you wonder what the hell goes through peoples heads once they reach office.

    That's messed up, althought I wouldn't put it past politicians to do something like that.

    Nice to know what those people in government think. All we are is pawns in their struggle for power and greed.

    Headsup - that link will install a MediaPlex spyware on your machine. Unless ActiveX is turned off.

    Are we not suppose to surf the web anymore? Every major site installs some sort of spyware, like doubleclick or mediaplex. Get adware or to opt out of mediaplex go here http://www.mediaplex.com/web-cgi/optout.cgi?optOut=1

    Some councilman in New York just ended his political career pretty damn fast too.

    That is an incredible story!!!

    I am surprised there is not more discussion on it. Personally, I think that kind of "policy" should be criminal. Perhaps no policitcal meeting should be "behind closed doors", maybe the mike should be left on at all times, and a camera installed in case they decide to pass notes!!!
