America can’t afford more dirty politicians.
We’ve seen a slew of them in recent years, as accusations and charges continue to fly around Capitol Hill.
We’ve got problems on state government levels as well.
Citizens elected these people to run their towns—but many are turning out to be grossly incompetent.
…or in this case, potentially breaking the law.
Democratic Cincinnati City Councilwoman Tamaya Dennard was arrested this week, and she’s facing some stiff charges.
And if she’s found guilty on all charges, she could face up to 50 years in prison!
Democratic Cincinnati City Councilwoman Tamaya Dennard was arrested on federal charges Tuesday in an attempt to sell her council vote for money, according to the Department of Justice.
Dennard was taken into custody in downtown Cincinnati on charges of honest services wire fraud, bribery and attempted extortion.
Dennard tried to sell her vote for cash? Seriously? And the charges just keep piling up.
How is this the behavior of a responsible elected official?
And by the way, this investigation included “theft of funds from programs receiving government money.”
Dennard allegedly asked for $10,000 to $15,000 for personal expenses from an employee at a law firm.
The FBI also discovered text messages and recordings of conversations. And these supposedly contain even more evidence against the Democrat councilwoman.
Like I said, we can’t afford to have so many dirty politicians.
If Dennard is guilty of these accusations, she’s a perfect example of what we DON’T need.
Aren’t you tired of this? Don’t you think we should demand more of our elected officials?
