When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Father of the Bride meets Drugstore Cowboy:

Yes Virginia, the morals and ethics of Virginia Governor Bob "transvaginal" McDonnell are being questioned - and it would appear that he is in some hot water. Vaginal Sponge Bob Square Pants, his wife, Star Scientific top cat Jonnie R. Williams Sr, all have some serious explaining to do.

One would think that Transvagianl Bob McDonnell would be in cruise mode wrapping his final months in office, and would no doubt like to leave on a high note, en route to pursuing higher office.

But at this point, instead of spending time with volunteers in Iowa and New Hampshire, it looks like Governor Ultrasound will have to spend his time with his attorneys.
FBI agents are conducting interviews about the relationship between Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell, his wife, Maureen, and a major campaign donor who paid for the food at the wedding of the governor's daughter, according to four people familiar with the questioning.
 The agents have been asking associates of the McDonnells about gifts provided to the family by Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie R. Williams Sr. and actions the Republican governor and his wife have taken that may have boosted the company, the people said.
 Among the topics being explored, they said, is the $15,000 catering bill that Williams paid for the 2011 wedding of McDonnell's daughter at Virginia's historic Executive Mansion. But questions have extended to other, previously undisclosed gifts from Williams to Maureen McDonnell as well, they said.

A few months ago, the Washington Post reported that McDonnell's daughter was married in 2011, and the governor said the bride and groom paid for the event. In reality, $15,000 came by way of Williams. McDonnell not only lied about the financing, but he somehow forgot to disclose Williams' generous gift, as he's legally required to do.

Complicating matters, shortly before the wedding, McDonnell's wife attended an event in Florida to endorse Williams' product, and shortly after the wedding, McDonnell hosted Williams at the governor's home for a launch party for Williams' product.

It is so rare that a politician actually gets caught taking bribes. In the case of Transvaginal Bob McDonnell, it is unusually gratifying to me, and if this could spillover to Ken Coochinelli's [spelled incorrectly] lap - this would be even more delicious than the first helping.

Yes readers, this story has a very mephitis smell to it, but you have to realize that these American Taliban[ers] are serial entrepreneurs. I'm sure McDonnell has already asked all of his staff to buy his Amway products and his air filters - its part of the GOP ilk, culture if you will, and the sad thing is, "Transvaginal Bob in his own mind thinks he has done nothing wrong in this instance.

I can hear Transvagianl Bob now speaking to Virginians: " My fellow Virginians', American Taliban [ers] and Guns Over People, as a good conservative Christian man, as a great gun hugger, and finally, as a exceptional manipulator of the female body ......... I categorically deny these allegations. Please send your donations now".

It's too bad that the FBI will not be forcing a probe into McDonnell's private parts against his will, how apropos this would be, a full circle moment if you will.
