Former San Diego mayor admits to winning and losing over $1BILLION gambling in eight years…funded by stealing from charity. Oh look! Stealing spending other people’s money! Perhaps the Democrats should run her for president in 2016.

Sounds like a political resume enhancement to me. I wonder how the mediapukes will spin this to be George Bush’s fault. Notice the story is from a British paper.

I posted this story in TIPS a little while before it got its own thread here at IHTM, but the one I used referenced from huffpo, because it’s such a fine outlet for troof. Here’s that link. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/14/maureen-oconnor-gambling-losses-billion_n_2688929.html?utm_hp_ref=politics

An animal will always act according to instinct. With libs, this sort of thing comes naturally.

That’s nothing, “Dear Leader” has been doing that with trillions, and losing badly.

Typical Dem. Steal from any source they can then spend the money on themselves.

No one seems to even take issue at the fact that she stole from a CHARITY to spend it GAMBLING. Don’t get me wrong – I gamble at casinos. But I spend MY money and only spend as much as I have allotted. If I lose it all, I go back to my hotel room and jump in the jacuzzi. And stealing from a charity? Stealing from poor people so her entitled self could have a little excitement?

Throw her in jail today! She should not be allowed “2 years” to pay it back. BS! It doesn’t MATTER if she pays it back. She STOLE it. Plus, the foundation is closed now because of her stealing. Who is she even going to pay back? And where is this “destitute” old hag going to earn $2 million in 2 years? Most people don’t even earn that much in a LIFETIME.

But she was a politician. It’s OK to steal – even millions. Let the punk down the street steal $50 from a store though – he’ll be in JAIL for the next 2 years, not being allowed to repay it.

We have GOT to clean this kind of scum (which is most of them) from the toxic sewers that makes up our government today!

Her husband was the founder of Jack in the Box fast food franchises.
He was also the founder of these charities she stole from.
He must be rolling over in his grave.
She will likely be the next nominee for Treasury Secretary under Obama.

I bet she gets no serious jail time, Odds are the charges will be dropped and the deck will never be stacked against her.

Bbbut it wasn’t her fault, see. According to the article, she may have had a tumor “before 2008″ that “may” have pressed on her brain and affected her judgment. Navyvet is right–it is George Bush’s fault!

Yes it claims this tumor “may have affected” the reasoning center of her brain, thus resulting in the theft.

Better X-ray Obama, Biden, Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, etc. right away. Similar tumors must be present in these theft & spend-a-holics too. Most likely though, they are too far gone already. Surely they have more tumor than brain.

Just another corrupt, thieving Democrat, nothin’ to see here, move along.

Don’t expect Ms. O’Connor to make restitution or serve any time, she’s well-connected to the Democrat machine mis-governing California.

BTW, why is this story in a foreign newspaper and not the American press?

If I had a billion dollars, I’d focus half on assembly of crack medical squad charged with attacking my brain tumor, and the other on bevy of vigilant and lovely–yet sensible–ladies to observe me and make sure I didn’t do stupid shit like embezzling charity funds. Hmm my scheme if falling apart.. and the wife disapproves
