Before he joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2000, Cleveland Browns running back Jamal Lewis was just talking on his cell phone about a drug deal that, as I recall from transcripts at the time, he didn't even want to take part in. In February 2004, Lewis was charged with conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute five kilograms of cocaine and using a cell phone in the commission of the first count.

In February 2005, Lewis began his 4 month prison term for trying to set up the drug deal. He was subsequently suspended 4 games in the 2004 season due to drug charges.

Are you actually defending a Democrat now???????????



If what you say above is true about never doing anything and just having a big mouth, then you should ask if he could fill in for you here when you are off for the day and we on BWOT need some positive business news..........

Unless Jamal Lewis is now an Illinois resident, he is unable to bid for the vacated Senate seat.

What i find amazing is that Jayhawk owns just about everyone here. I almost wonder if he just puts all of you on through an alter ego.

Blogo was probably ok as long as he talked about trading the seat for an ambassadorship or a cabinet position, things like that take place in politics all the time. When he moved into talking about trading the seat for a fat job for his wife, cash for his "campaign contributions", and stating the seat was "worth money" he broke a bunch of federal conspiracy laws on trading public office for monetary considerations, and he made it all worse by doing it over the phone, making it wire fraud. He's going to go to prison for a very long time. In all seriousness, this guy is seriously mentally ill.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
