Default What's the statute of limitations for payroll fraud?

Does it vary by state? What if it was the US military that was the victim?

Just curious.

If anyone has a law book, while you're at it, check out "libel" and "defamation of character".

Defamation of character - Time to bring in the Democratic version of Ken Starr .

I think it runs about one election cycle.

The democrats think it deserves to be an issue this time because they've got themselves a gen-yooo-wine war hero in their camp. And so of course "war hero" now is good. My guess is they didn't run with this issue last time because it would have invited an investigation of Gore's holiday trip to Vietnam.

Wouldn't this be the "politics of personal destruction"?

And when you get it, can the Republicans whine incessantly about it like the democrats did?

You socialistas are showing your colors. It only is unfair when it is done to your guy.

This is a good point Shekky. Clearly the issue here is how republicrat campaign managers have historically handled candidates with military experience. This is an example of Chomsky's manufacture of consent. Shekky is actively working to align his worldview only with the cult of personality and the party, so that he doesn't have to confront uncomfortable questions about his own worldview, and doesn't feel any personal responsibility for any government policy, even if he is supporting that government.

Unlike Paddybo, who operates within a Cult of One, so that he doesn't have any personal responsibility for anything at all.

Yes, it varies by state. Generally, federal financial crimes have a 5-year statute. But when does the time start ticking? Is it from the time of the event or the time of the discovery of the event?

With people pointing out similarities between Vietnam and Iraq, it seems to be relevant. If the guy was too big of a pansy to go to Vietnam, do you really want him having the power to put American troops in situations that he himself avoided? Had he been there and actually experienced war he may think about those consequences a little more before he brainstorms reasons to invade another country.

ST, a question for you: Was the treatment that Clinton got inappropriate?
