Hmmmm...What's the difference between these two athletes??

What a coincidence … nearly: Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks last week pleaded guilty to insider trading and was indefinitely suspended by the NFL.He faces up to 25 years in prison.

Kendricks’ take in the scheme was reported to have been $1.2 million.

Fascinating. In a very similar insider trading case, Phil Mickelson, judged to have made a dirty million dollars, was neither indicted nor prosecuted. He was merely ordered by the SEC to pay back his take to the government, plus interest, a total just shy of $1.2 million.

Bernie Sanders Congratulates Jeff Bezos For Taking His Advice - Huff Post

WASHINGTON ― Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) congratulated Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos on Tuesday for announcing he would raise wages to $15 per hour for all Amazon employees.

Since August, Sanders had waged an aggressive shame campaign against the company, the second largest employer in the United States, for paying wages low enough that some workers qualify for safety net benefits such as food stamps.

“It is no secret that I have been a harsh critic of the wage and employment practices of Amazon and its owner Jeff Bezos,” Sanders said in a statement, essentially a declaration of victory.

“Today I want to give credit where credit is due,” he said. “And I want to congratulate Mr. Bezos for doing exactly the right thing.”

Amazon said in a press release Tuesday that more than 250,000 of its half a million workers would benefit from the wage increase, which would take effect in November.

“We listened to our critics, thought hard about what we wanted to do, and decided we want to lead,” Bezos said. “We’re excited about this change and encourage our competitors and other large employers to join us.”

His partisanship is out in the open. He clearly attacks the "left",the Clintons and Democrats

How can he expect anyone to believe he will just call "balls and strikes?"

He exposed himself for what he really is. A bought and paid for Republican hack with an agenda.

Republicans just don't take sexual assault seriously as a problem Just look at Bill Shine and Trump

Republicans simply do not care whether it’s true that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted women in his youth.

Tactically, there are tells. They tried to speed up the process rather than slow it down when they learned there were more allegations against him. They’ve resisted calling relevant witnesses to testify. And they haven't seen fit to take liberals’ advice and swap him out for another equally conservative nominee.

But the real way you know they don’t care isn’t the tactics surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination — it’s the key role played in it by White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Bill Shine.

Leeann Tweeden's response to Kavanaugh's sexual assault charge....crickets

I guess this delicate flower is not so appalled or devastated by sexual assault if the accused is a Republican.

Either that or she was a lying shill all along.............
