Looking at mud when dust settles

Rep. Shelley Berkley fought a courageous battle in the U.S. Senate race against Republican opponent Sen. Dean Heller in this past election and lost.

There was a lot of mud slinging in the campaign stating that Berkley was the “most corrupt” politician in Congress and that she tried to enrich her husband by fighting to keep open the only kidney transplant center in Las Vegas.

However, the House ethics panel said Berkley violated rules but found no evidence of impropriety on her part regarding the kidney center; the panel said the Nevada Democrat made to attempt no enrich herself.

When looking at how bad politicians want to win an election and how far they will go to get theirs, one only has to say what a way that was to win an election, or should I say, what a way to lose an election. Politics is a dirty game.
