ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views regarding two U.S. government scandals involving Democrats in U.S. Congress. Controversies mentioned are the real estate deal of U.S. Senator Chris Dodd with Edward Downe and the extensive ties of U.S. Representative Maxine Waters with OneUnitedBank. The author claims that neither of these stories made news because most of the U.S. media are predisposed to cover up for these politicians.
