There are so many aspersions, deceptions and cover-ups that I’m losing count. And I’m not talking about Lake County politics. No, this time the stench is from our nation’s capital.

Black Panther scandal. Fast and Furious scandal. ACORN scandal. IRS scandal. Solyndra scandal. James Rosen scandal. AP News scandal. Benghazi scandal. Misuse of stimulus money scandal. Whew, and this list is not exhaustive.

While the current administration is rocketing toward being one of the most scurrilous in our nation’s history, we can find solace hearing the White House has no knowledge whatsoever of any of these nefarious operations.

So while Rome burns, one can hear the fiddle being played.
