Washington Man Pleads Guilty To Conspiring To Kill

Guilty pleas were entered yesterday in a case where a Texas cocaine dealer was lured to St. Louis and then killed. Fifty-four-year old Scott Alan Compton, of Washington, Missouri, pled guilty to conspiring with a Houston man in the alleged drug hit. Prosecutors said that Compton, the Texas man and unnamed co-conspirators made “significant efforts to cover-up the conspiracy and destroy evidence of the crime, but were ultimately unsuccessful.” Compton pleaded guilty last week to one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute over 500 grams of cocaine. Sentencing is set for May and Compton could face up to 40 years.

I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

Nonetheless, the Paycheck Fairness Act is the latest weapon in the War On Women, part II--2014 election style.
