Even more Republican ethics ... or lack thereof

Just another crooked Republican caught breaking the law:

The former head of a Republican consulting group has pleaded guilty to jamming Democratic telephone lines in several New Hampshire cities on Election Day two years ago... Allen Raymond, former president of the Virginia-based GOP Marketplace, pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to conspiring to make harassing phone calls. The charge carries up to five years in prison. He will be sentenced in November.

The funniest part of this article is right down at the bottom, where Repub chairwoman Jayne Millerick says, "These allegations have been extremely troubling and we are happy that it appears they are coming to a just conclusion."

Not so fast. I don't think we can say this is a "just conclusion" until we see Raymond's sorry ass in prison for a year or two. Any bets that he gets slapped with some sort of community service? Go ahead. Take the bet. Make my day.
