WASHINGTON – A former congressman was sentenced to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay $1 million in restitution for defrauding charitable donors to pay for his personal expenses, the Justice Department announced Wednesday.

Stephen Stockman, 61, a former U.S. representative from Texas, was convicted in April of 23 counts of mail fraud, making false statements to the Federal Election Commission, money laundering and filing a false tax return.

Remember him? Another one of those "family values" guys. Let him rot.

Are you really a conservative? Surely you wouldn't want one of your beloved republican politicians to rot in jail. As a liberal I am enjoying this. Hopefully there will be a lot more crooked republicans going to jail.

I am what used to be called Conservative. Trump and his RINO supporters are anything but Conservative. Repeat after me..... Authoritarian assholes.
