Lou Dobbs Employs Illegals. Whoops.

Lou Dobbs became almost comically famous for his rants against illegal immigrants that it eventually cost him his job at CNN. He particularly railed against corporations that employed illegals and suggested they face felony charges, so you can only guess how this story ends. The Nation reports:

Based on a yearlong investigation, including interviews with five immigrants who worked without papers on his properties, The Nation and the Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute have found that Dobbs has relied for years on undocumented labor for the upkeep of his multimillion-dollar estates and the horses he keeps for his 22-year-old daughter, Hillary, a champion show jumper.

Of course, none of this will even matter because let’s take a look at how many times the bastions of modern conservatism have been proven completely full of shit, yet people continue feeding from the same trough because a crazed Mormon tells them to on the picture box. [Note: If you think The Bible is a true story, now would be a good time to go back to the Kelly Brook post for some lustful coveting.]:

Newt Gingrich was having an affair during the Clinton impeachment.
Rev. Ted Haggard enjoyed meth and gay sex.
George Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction.
Homeland Security issued Terror Alerts for political purposes during the 2004 election.
Mark Foley preyed on young male Senate pages.
Sarah Palin turned out to be an actual moron who just wanted to be on TV.
Ken Mehlman was a homosexual the entire time.
FOX News largest shareholder is funding the “terror mosque.”
Everything Christine O’Donnell has ever said.

And I’m sure there’s a bunch of others I missed. But, seriously, I don’t know how many more ways I can say, “These people are using God and distorted patriotism to lie directly into your face,” without using hand-puppets dressed as NASCAR drivers. (Turns out they sue for that.)
