    Just what makes him any different from other politicians who have served federal time? So what? They let him go home without having to be fitted for an ankle bracelet. Make him do what any other person would have to do.

    Poor guy, he's lost his wife, brother, reputation, and common decency. But at least he did not lose 6 children like that family whose van was demolished by one of many illegally licensed truck drivers so that Lyin' Ryan could have a nice vacation.

      Yeah he should have been sentenced longer and he should have not been allowed to see his wife on her death bed – special treatment is not given to anyonw else who is locked up and loose a loved one. They can't go say good-bye – lucky if the family has enough money to pay to have them go see the body before the funeral
