    Comrade, relax, its only 15 charges, you still can join parliament! Who knows, be the next president?

    I am afraid he will need more than just 15 charges before he can join the government. He also needs to be charged with rape for starters. And then again maybe he does not have a shower at home only a bath?

      where did that come from? this article is about a person who is accused of fraud and causing the death of two people, nowhere is race brought into this story, why now make it about black v white?

      You definately got your mind stuck, ( maybe with a story from 1950 )wake-up and look around you, or even give Juliass a call, then you will see what is living a priveledged life!
