Ah, Pete. Once again, our Dallas congressman says just the wrong thing at just the wrong time, in this case hours after the Houston Ponzi-schemer was charged by federal authorities with fleecing hundreds of people. Stanford had lavished money and trips on our beloved Congressman Sessions as he tried to fend off regulation.
But Stanford was bi-partisan in distributing his victims’ money. His bagman, er, lobbyist,Â was former Democratic Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes.
