Fitial's Impeachment is World-wide News

February 12, 2013

The House of Representatives adopted the 5 remaining articles of impeachment today. Governor Benigno Fitial was impeached on all 18 charges of felony, corruption and neglect of duty.

News of the governor's impeachment is spreading around the world. Stories, such as the one on Huffington Post, remind readers of the governor's corrupt ties to Jack Abramoff and other scandals.

Federal authorities never prosecuted Fitial for the many illegal acts he cooked up will Abramoff, Willy Tan and corrupt U.S. Congressmen, but his own people have risen up to hold him accountable.  That is the real story. That the people are doing what the federal and local authorities would or could not accomplish. They are saying no to the corrupt politics that have crippled the retirement fund, public utilities, health care system and law enforcements agencies.

While members of the House voted overwhelmingly to impeach the governor, the fate of Fitial in the Senate is far less certain. The Senate will now hold a trial and it needs 6 votes to convict Fitial. Rota Senator Juan Ayuyu is in federal prison and there has been talk that other Senators have been bribed. Hopefully, the senators know right from wrong.

Reform advocate Glen Hunter posted videos of the procedures on YouTube. They are worth watching.  It is stunning to see how the governor's allies attempt to justify clear violations. Here is the link.

I sure hope that the Senators are reading and aware of what others are looking at around the world.
Especially if/when a couple of them are bought off and vote "no" against impeachment.
But then our elected have no shame, scruples or any type of ethics.

If I was one of Fitial's hacks and spouted some of the ridiculous statements attempting to defend this clown, I would be so embarrassed to show my face.
But then in the CNMI only money talks and most live for today and have no plans for tomorrow.
I hope the people keep on track from here on and keep on these leaches and corrupt elected.

Any idea who is going to represent the Governor in the Senate proceedings? One rumor is that one of the former "volunteers" may be tapped , but the Governor's public information officer has been silent on the subject.

It would be appropriate for the Govs. 'volunteers' to represent him as corruption draws corruption.
BTW who is paying for the gov's defense team?
