Better to go that way than with an airplane crash or a frame-up that leads to prison like happened to US Rep. George Hanson and others including Dan Rostenkowski, Chairman of the House Committee on Ways and Means.
Rostenkowski was eliminated by the despicable Eric Holder, a US attorney at the time who rose to become Obama's Attorney General, proving the point that in the US government only the totally corrupt succeed. Holder's false conviction of Rostenkowski was overturned with a pardon by President Bill Clinton. Even former Republican President Gerald Ford regarded Rostenkowski's conviction as a fraud.
US. Representative James Traficant was another victim of fraudulent proecution. Traficant defended a constituent, John Demjanjuk, who was falsely accused of being a former Nazi concentration camp guard, "Ivan the Terrible." Traficant's interference with the arrogant Israeli-serving State Department, many believe, led to him being falsely prosecuted and incarcerated.
