Democrat Resigns After Admitting To Taking 450K In Kickbacks And Bribes

Dwaine Caraway’s walk of shame will be short once he gets hired as the DNC Chairman.

Caraway just resigned his state seat after being found accepting bribes and kickbacks that totaled over $450K.

I checked this story out several times over the internet and I seem to have missed a statement issued by Nancy Pelosi on this issue. Seems she is pretty quick to issue a statement when it is a Republican member of the House, and that it “proves” that Republicans are all corrupt. Does this “prove” that all Democrats are on the take too, Ms. Pelosi? What say you?

A Dallas official pleaded guilty Thursday to federal charges after prosecutors said he earned more than $450,000 in kickbacks and bribes in exchange for official actions taken to benefit local business dealings.

Democrat Dwaine Caraway, Dallas city council member and mayor pro tem, pleaded guilty in court to conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud, as well as tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox announced in a news release.

The funds Caraway received were “in the form of a phony consulting agreement, luxury suits, fully funded trips, gambling money, repayment of personal debt, checks and cash” from Robert Leonard in return for taking action that benefited the latter’s business, the news release said, citing court documents.

The funds Caraway received were “in the form of a phony consulting agreement, luxury suits, fully funded trips, gambling money, repayment of personal debt, checks and cash.” He must have left out the toilet and kitchen sink.

I don’t care what political party you belong to, or the color of your skin, anyone committing actions like this needs to be prosecuted and serve adequate time in jail. Fines will never stop this kind of stuff.

All public officials should undergo a forensic audit of their personal and finances, annually. If this became established policy, crooks would flee from public office like rats on a foundering ship. The most interesting part of it would be watching to see how many resigned in righteous outrage before submitting their finances for review. I would expect at least a third of them to express indignation and quietly disappear from public view.

Swamp possums come in both Democratic and Republican form. Great job by the FBI, even though you have some possums of your own at the leadership level, we still appreciate everything that you do.
