California Republicans Anthony Vassallo and Kenneth Kenitzer, loved the freedom from financial regulation the Bush Regime afforded them that they donated generously to the RNC and NRCC and to their favorite candidate, Mitt Romney... all the while conducting a ponzi scheme much like Madoff's only smaller.

Is the dishonesty and the despicable behavior these people perpetrated on their victims somehow limited to Republicans? What does that have to do with it?? Why can't teh story stand on its own without the negative political implication?
