    Inouye effectively shat all over his medal of honor when he started doing dishonorable things as a politician.
    He had no honor left and it is good to see the end of at least one more corrupt politician.
    While I'm glad he did good things in the Army for us in the old days, he ruined many things about America during his time as Senator. So thanks but good riddance.
