Republican "Paragons of Virtue"
at the State or Local Levels :

Corrupt Republican Governors :

  • [immorality: AND corruption] California's Arnold Schwarzenegger is so much bigger than other public figures that it takes a whole web site to cover his issues :   www.ArnoldExposed.com
  • [corruption:]  Connecticut's John Rowland resigned in disgrace and was sentenced to Federal prison after being convicted of corruption in 2004. Also involved with his crimes were the state Treasurer, Paul Sylvester, and Ben Andrews, the former longtime leader of the Connecticut chapter of the N.A.A.C.P., which shows why this kind of African Americans become Republican politicians.
  • [corruption:]  Ohio's Bob Taft III pleaded no contest in Aug. 2005 to charges that he violated state ethics laws, becoming the first governor in the state's history to be convicted of a crime.
  • [corruption:]  Kentucky's Ernie Fletcher indicted in job scandal in May, 2006. Like Republican Gov, of Arkansas, Fletcher was an ordained Baptist minister.
  • [corruption:]  Illinois George Ryan was found guilty by a federal jury of all 18 counts or bribery and corruption against him, ending an historic, marathon public corruption trial in April 2006, and he was sentenced in Sept. to 6 1/2 years in prison.

Corrupt state and local Republican politicos :

  • [corruption:]  Wes Goodman was a Republican state representative in Ohio who consistently touted his faith and his anti-LGBT stances had to resign after being caught having sex with a man in his office, despite living with a wife at his home. (Nov., 2017)
  • I reported on the next congressman's scandals years ago, but since he is still in office as of Jan. 2018, I repeat it here:
  • [corruption:]  Rep. DesJarlais, who is also a doctor, made the unfortunately rather common decision to cheat on his wife before assuming office. However, that's not all he did. You see, besides cheating on his wife, Rep. DesJarlais' choice of partners bears mention – specifically, he…
    • admitted under oath to at least six affairs, including two affairs with his patients and staffers, while he was a physician at Grandview Medical Center in Jasper, TN.
    • Wrote false prescriptions for one of his mistresses to get drugs, and…
    • Pressured his own wife to get an abortion – twice – while campaigning as a supposedly family values-friendly candidate.
    • tried to persuade a mistress who was his patient, to get an abortion as well.

    The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports:

    GOPrepDesjarlaisA decade before calling himself "a consistent supporter of pro-life values," Tennessee physician and Republican U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais supported his ex-wife's decision to get two abortions before their marriage, according to the congressman's sworn testimony during his divorce trial. Obtained by the Chattanooga Times Free Press, the couple's 2001 trial transcript also confirms DesJarlais had sexual relationships with at least two patients, three coworkers and a drug representative while he was chief of staff at Grandview Medical Center in Jasper, Tenn. During one affair with a female patient, DesJarlais prescribed her drugs, gave her an $875 watch and bought her a plane ticket to Las Vegas, records show.
