Congratulations Migraine! You just called everyone who has ever thanked a US Military Service member for their service a "dope." With the exception of those service members who were drafted into the military, the service members did a job they signed up to do and were paid by the taxpayers. Answer this question for us please...have you ever thanked a military service member for their service directly…

Migraine- you need to take a pill. Actually as a matter of fact, every place I've ever worked the employer always thanked any productive employee that was leaving their employment. I read letters of thanks in the paper all the time for long time employees retiring of all professions including waitress and bank tellers. I've seen customers throw parties for their barber and car technician.…

Here, will this make the usual pack of loons happy? "Golly, thank you from the bottom of my heart for collecting a paycheck paid for out of my taxes in compensation for doing a JOB that you signed up to do." You dopes are acting like they were unpaid volunteers.

Peoria Congressman allegedly solicited contributions of more than $5,000 for a political action committee to help an Illinois colleague

From chicagotribune.com: Congressional investigators have recommended a full House Ethics Committee probe of Rep. Aaron Schock for allegedly soliciting contributions of more than $5,000 for a political action committee to help an Illinois colleague engaged in a bitter primary battle last year, records released today showed.

Moreover, the Office of Congressional Ethics also listed Rep. Rodney Davis, elected last November as a new GOP congressman from southern Illinois, as a “non-cooperating witness” in its investigation into how funds flowed into the PAC, the Campaign for Primary Accountability.

Among the PAC’s top funders is Joe Ricketts, whose family’s trust was used to buy the Chicago Cubs.

In releasing the investigatory report on Schock, the House Ethics Committee had no comment “pending completion of its initial review.”

Under an FEC advisory opinion, lawmakers can solicit donations of up to $5,000 for independent expenditure political action committees. Schock’s attorneys contended the lawmaker’s actions had nothing to do with his role as a House member and that his communications did not fit the definition of “solicitation” under the FEC’s regulations.

“The release by the Ethics Committee of this report from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) is just one more step in the long process of adjudicating ethics complaints that can be submitted by anyone for any reason,” Steve Dutton, Schock’s communications director, said in a statement.
