Federal corruption charges? Isn't that an oxymoron? I hope the judge weighs all that Sen. Bruno has done that is GOOD against the few things that he let slip by. Stop this nonsense and go after the REAL criminals!

Yeah ok. If this was a regular working citizen it would be way different. He is a white collar criminal who "broke the law". There are a bunch of criminals who have done far less and done time. Give me a break. Bruno is not above the system.
