life long politicians are crooks. one only needs to look at his personal assets to decide. This guy is a life long politician, which means living at tax payers' expense. the addiction of living at someone else's expense is hard to quit. i guess we the people are to blame for this kind to keep screwing us.

JuniP@jerk, you don't know what you are talking about. Joe Simitian has done a lot of good things for our area and is well respected.

juniperk, I'd be interested in seeing the specific facts you are basing your statement on. If you don't have any and you are just griping, please do so elsewhere.

Some people may respect Joe Simitian but I am not one of them.

Simitian hates freedom.

It is interesting how he just bounces from one office to another. He's not alone in that though. Luckily he's going down the political ladder and not up. Too bad he couldn't land in any other county than the one I live in though.

Once he finally retires he'll still be living off the government dole until he takes his last breath.

Lucky us.
