Barney has run sufficiently afoul of the House Ethics Committee that he's being called out to explain some of his less savory deals. Him being a Democrat and all, all I can think is there must be video footage of him burying the hobos in his back yard or something.
He's been called on to resign, but says that would be un-American. Un-Democratic perhaps, since all it takes is a parking ticket to a Republican, and the press is screaming for his resignation, and his head on a stick.
Whatever it is he did, it must be good. He's asking for time. I'd say give him ten years. If he asks for more time, give him 15.
