Fox News Just Said Darrell Issa's Arson Was Just a Youthful Indiscretion

A commenter on Megyn Kelly's America Live just said that Darrel Issa's arson event was just a youthful indiscretion!

This is what Wikipedia says about Darrell Issa and charges that should have been filed against him:

After leaving the military, Issa and his second wife, Kathy Stanton, moved back to the Cleveland area. They pooled their savings, sold their cars, and borrowed $50,000 from his family to invest in Quantum Enterprises, an electronics manufacturer run by a friend from Cleveland Heights that assembled bug zappers, CB radio parts and other consumer products for other companies. One of those clients, car alarm manufacturer Steal Stopper, would become the path to Issa's fortune. It was struggling badly, and he took control of it by foreclosing a $60,000 loan he had made to it when its founder, Joey Adkins, missed a payment. Adkins remained as an employee.[9]
Issa soon turned Steal Stopper around, to the point that it was supplying Ford with thousands of car alarms and negotiating a similar deal with Toyota. But early in the morning of September 7, 1982, the offices and factory of Quantum and Steal Stopper in the Cleveland suburb of Maple Heights, caught fire. The fire took three hours to put out. The buildings and almost all inventory within were destroyed. An investigation of the cause of the fire noted "suspicious burn patterns" with fires starting in two places aided by an accelerant such as gasoline.[9] Adkins said that Issa appeared to prepare for a fire by increasing the fire insurance policy 462% three weeks previously, and by removing computer equipment holding accounting and customer information. Adkins said that he thinks Issa set the fire on purpose. The insurance company was suspicious of arson and paid only about one-tenth the insured amount.[19]
This is a disturbing case of an insider wealthy guy getting away with a major crime. Yes, it was 40 years ago, but he should be in jail and not in the House of Representatives. Issa is attacking the Democrats for trying to determine if the Tea Party should be tax exempt. I suggest he is not the one who should be doing this. He is an arsonist!

He is also doesn't care if the economy burns up because of Republican neglect.

I have said that the Republicans are unfit to rule the nation. They are not helping Obama fix the problems on main street, and the consumer is suffering greatly. Construction is barely on life support.
Manufacturing is contracting.

Yet all the corrupt Republicans care about is scandal. That, my friends, IS the scandal. It is time they started to focus on main street. If they can't do that, and they can't, they are unfit to govern the United States and should be voted out en masse.


  1. Arson is a sacrament!

  2. Lol, Tony, apparently you have to be a criminal if you want to be a Republican. Dems are sneaky criminals but Republicans are blatant criminals.

  3. Ach! You found me out.

    Being a GOP politician is great if you're a criminally insane psychopath who frequents whore houses and raves non-stop about Christian values.

    If you really aspire to be a GOP politician it helps if you threaten prostitutes with violence at gun point and demand oral sex and, once delivered, mug them for their cash and burn down a church on the way to a Promise Keepers rally.
