Item description for Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime, and Corruption in the Democratic Party by Lynn Vincent & Robert S. McCain...
Overview The corruption of the Democratic Party is so pervasive, so routine that each crime in itself is often a mere footnote on the evening news. But taken together, the party's history points up a criminal breeding ground, more than a century old, that incubates corruption, nurtures blind loyalty, and spawns policy decisions rooted in the subversion of liberty and the rule of law. From bribery, kickbacks, and sex scandals to espionage, terrorism, and rape, Donkey Cons chronicles, for the first time, the panorama of Democratic crime and corruption, showing how the party developed a "criminal personality" that hatches policies hazardous to the constitutional rights of every American. Thoroughly researched, using anecdotes and intimate details, this book shows the serial corruption of the Clinton presidency wasn't an anomaly, but the logical legacy of the modern Democratic ethos. As author McCain says, "The Democratic Party is like the Gambino mob with matching federal funds."

First prize winner for most lies in fewest pages! Jun 21, 2008
For years I have been researching, cataloging and then publishing the corruption which flows from today's Republican Party like the waters of the Mississippi River through a collapsed levee. Google recognizes the quality of my work by listing it as the very first response to searches for "Republican corruption and immorality". On that page I have been challenging Republicans and/or conservatives to come up with a comparable catalogue of Democratic corruption and there have been very few takers. Those who have responded have come up with pathetic attempts like this latest "Donkey CONS", which try every trick in "the book of deceits" to fool the public. They compare apples and oranges, peccadilloes to crimes. They use Southern "Democrats" of times long dead and gone, the fathers of today's Republican Party of Jefferson Davis, to blacken the reputation of today's Liberal Democratic children of Abraham Lincoln. They use "members" of the Democratic Party to blacken her, when political parties have no control over who joins them.
In contrast to such shenanigans, what I do is show that the Republican Party is rotten to the core because it has a pattern of appointing some of its most rotten members to high office in their party and inflicting such people on the public by promoting their elections. What I highlight are not mere "indictments", but convictions, and not minor offenses - no matter how sensational or unpopular -, but serious crimes. I also clearly differentiate between civic corruption on the one hand, and sexual immorality, on the other. And I distinguish between local criminality and national criminality. Regardless of the distinctions, however, I don't just make unfounded claims about which party is the most corrupt in America in our day. I build my case on plenty of unimpeachable evidence. Does this litany of leading contemporary Republican politicians ring any bells: Richard Nixon, Spiro Agnew, U.S. Senators, Strom Thurmond, Conrad Burns, Rick Santorum, Bill Frist, Bob Packwood, Ted Stevens, Larry Craig, Philip Giordano, U.S. Congressmen, Tom DeLay, Newt Gingrich, Henry , Bob Livingston, Bob Barr, Bob Ney, Tom Noe, Richard Pombo, Bill Thomas, Charles Canady, Dick Armey, John Peterson, Helen Chenoweth, Katherine Harris, Wild Bill, Janklow, Vito Fossella, J.C. Watts, Connie Mack, John Schmitz, Donald, Buz, Lukens, Ken Calvert, Dan Crane, Jim Bunn, Sue Myrick, Robert Bauman, Ed Schrock, Roy Blunt, Rick Renzi, Charles Taylor, Duke, Cunningham, Don Sherwood, Roy Blunt, Tom Feeney, Mark Foley, Marilyn Musgrave, Jack Abramoff, Mark A. Grethen, Oliver North, Gordon Liddy, Richard A. Delgaudio, Don Blankenship, Ralph Reed, John Fund, Jeff Gannon, Bill Bennett, etc. ?
Very interesting book Aug 18, 2007
I only would hope that some democrats would read it and really think about it.
Too Slanted to be Worthwhile May 26, 2007
There are very few books published that I cannot, for one reason or another, finish. This, however, seems to be the book of the year that I just cannot make it through. I tried, but this was so blatantly one sided and biased that I had to give it up. I expected a slant...not a hatchet job.
The out and out misstatements and the innuendos found in this book make it a less than credible work. While bashing the Democrats, they seem to have a serious case of amnesia about the Republicans. In addition, they twist some of the facts around to make their argument, which is revisionist, at best.
A classic in the book is Marion Barry's arrest for his drug use. They rail against him for being re-elected to office after serving his prison term. No Republican could have that happen....but wait. What about John Poindexter from the Reagan administration (granted, he was appointed, not elected) who was indicted and found guilty of numerous felonies? He then was hired by the current Bush administration to work with national security. Ooops!
Many reviewers have mentioned the book is heavily footnoted, which it is. However, if you go to the back of the book, you will discover that the book division of a tabloid magazine is one of their favorite sources. Not a place I go for primary historical information, nor would any serious historian.
There are crooks, scoundrels and dishonest politicians from both parties running around Washington, D.C., and while I didn't expect this book to be balanced, I did expect, at a minimum, that the authors would acknowledge that both parties have skeletons to hide. From this book, you would expect that the Democrats are fleecing everyone, while the Republicans are clean as snow, which is not the case.
Corruption in American Politics Jan 10, 2007
You must be very open minded to accept the premis of this book. Although throughly doucmented and including Republican's and well as Democrat's, I doubt many Democrat's would agree with the conclusions arrived at as they read the chapters. The book presents a very disturbing picture of modern day politics.
Naughty Democrat stories Aug 2, 2006
Donkey Cons: Sex, Crime, and Corruption in the Democratic Party by Lynn Vincent and Robert Stacy McCain was a bit of a disappointment. The cover and introduction promise stories of crime and misdoings throughout the entire history of the Democrat Party, but much of the book focuses on the last 25 years or so. Scandals involving Roosevelt and other older Dems are glossed over without detail. The writers seem to assume that the reader is already familiar with those events. Much focus is placed on the shenanigans of the Clinton White House, which almost seems to be an issue done to death. Vincent and McCain do bring up several Republican wrong-doers to be fair. I think the writers' strongest point is that while Republicans seem to face up to their crimes or at least have to pay the penalty, Democrats very often do not and are occasionally rewarded for them. This point alone is worth reading the book for.
