Another day, another case of Democrat corruption

They say “when it rains it pours,” and having lived in South Florida for ten years, I can say it’s quite possible the saying originated here. On the other hand, if it’s referring to political corruption, it may have originated amongst liberal Democrats. When Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House she quipped, “we are going to drain the swamp” – well she certainly didn’t have to look very far.

Just last week we reported on bribes involving several Pennsylvania Democrats and how the new State Attorney General decided to drop the cases – because she deemed the investigation racist.

Well, this week Democrats continue their march towards conduct unbecoming.

According to Foxnews.com a state-level Democrat in North Carolina is having a tough time with integrity. Patrick Cannon, Mayor of Charlotte — the state’s largest city and the site of the 2012 Democratic National Convention — resigned Wednesday hours after he was charged with federal public corruption and accused of taking bribes in an FBI sting. The 47-year-old Cannon is accused of accepting more than $48,000 in bribes from undercover FBI agents posing as businessmen who wanted to do work with Charlotte. A criminal complaint from the U.S. Attorney says the Democrat, who has been mayor for six months, accepted cash, airline tickets, a hotel room and the use of a luxury apartment as bribes and solicited more than $1 million more. During the last encounter, according to the U.S. attorney’s office, he accepted $20,000 in cash.

Cannon was elected mayor in November, replacing Anthony Foxx who was named Transportation Secretary by President Obama. If convicted on all the Cannon, he faces 20 years in prison and more than $1 million in fines.

Out in California, State Senator Leland Yee, a longtime California politician who was praised for his efforts to make government more transparent and authored gun control legislation, was arrested Wednesday, accused of conspiracy to deal firearms and wire fraud. According to the NY Daily News, Yee discussed helping the undercover FBI agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired automatic weapons and missiles, and showed the agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States, according to an affidavit from FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua.

Yee performed “official acts” in exchange for donations from undercover FBI agents, as he sought to dig himself out of a $70,000 debt incurred during a failed San Francisco mayoral bid, according to court documents. Yee is also accused of accepting $10,000 in January 2013 from an undercover agent in exchange for his making a call to the California Department of Public Health in support of a contract under consideration with the agency.

Another individual named in the affidavit is Raymond Chow, aka “Shrimp Boy,” the former leader of a Chinese criminal organization with ties to Hong Kong. Chow is accused of money laundering, conspiracy to receive and transport stolen property and conspiracy to traffic contraband cigarettes.

Yee is the third Democrat senator from California to face charges this year along with Sen. Rod Wright, convicted of perjury and voter fraud, and Sen. Ron Calderon, indicted on federal corruption charges. Wright and Calderon are both taking a voluntary leave of absence, WITH pay of course– so typical.

Despite his tribulations, Yee is among three Democrats running this year for secretary of state, the office that oversees elections and campaign finance reporting. He lost a bid for mayor of San Francisco in 2011. Maybe Nancy Pelosi should start draining the swamp right there in her home state – as a matter of fact, near the congressional district she represents.

Yes there is corruption on both sides of the aisle, but it just seems to be raining down right now from the Democrat side — not to mention Ray Nagin, Jesse Jackson Jr, William “Cold Cash” Jefferson, and the countless incidents of corruption from local Democrat politicians here in South Florida. And then of course there’s that merry band of rascals in Washington DC: Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Susan Rice and Robin Hood himself, our president.

Oops, my apologies. How careless of me to forget liberal progressives don’t possess any code of honor, integrity, or character, so we can’t possibly hold them to any accountable standard. They can lie, deceive, and distort — it’s all good. They’re not hypocrites, they’re just being themselves.

I suppose that’s why Democrat corruption isn’t news, and why probably none of the mainstream media outlets will cover the stories about Charlotte Mayor Cannon and California State Senator Yee.

Yet the alleged traitors news is yet to hit Yahoo or any of the other major media sites, gee I wonder why.

It’s bad enough that Yee was involved in any sort of corruption, but the icing on the cake is that he’s an anti-gun weasel actively involved in illegal weapons trafficking, trafficking automatic weapons to gangbangers. Did any of *them* get a background check or ten-day waiting period? I guess he’s only anti-gun unless you’re propping up his failed, broke-ass campaign.

If the FBI keeps uprooting these Democrat crooks , taking money from undercover

Some how, The libs think they are beyond the law and anything they do is alright. Last year was a big year for Dems to get busted for illegal activities and this year is no different. If their mouths are moving they are lying, if the reach for their wallet it is going to cost taxpayers money. If the have a pen and a phone it marks the idea that our rights are being taken away. but to them, it is business as usual. Not just libs but some GOP establishment is no different

I tried to be nice, but I think I got snippy with him. 🙁

Casper1974

I think if someone had the gall to call ME a racist nazi, my response would have been “snippy” …and then some….

Reba
Guest
Well, you would have to read all our posts back and forth to understand me. Every time he responded, he called me names. I never once told him I was a Conservative, because I thought he could see that I was by my post to him or other ones. I find it funny that he is one, but he can’t carry a conversation with someone he disagrees with. Oh well, there is several that are like that and that is one reason I loved your post to Estelle. (PS) I type my posts on word first and clean them up… Read more »
Casper1974

That’s a good idea – I might try using word too. I’ve been cringing at all my typos…LOL. Did you check out that link I sent you? I’m interested in your opinion on that article.

Reba
Guest

Yes, I copied and saved it and I think it’s a good article and right on. Well, if he responds, I won’t, so he will get the last word. (LOL) You know the old saying: Dynamite comes in small packages? That’s why I use word, because believe me, I could be nastier than him. LOL

Casper1974

Good girl! Let him stew……and save your best wit for someone who will “get it”. 🙂

I think for one evening, I’ll just agree with everyone. LOL
That would be a switch, huh?

Casper1974

Nah……don’t change…..Your way of debating is refreshingly mature.

Reba
Guest

Ah, thank you. 🙂 You know, every once in a while, the devil in me has to come out just for one evening. I think your post is great to respond to the nasty ones. I’m sure you and Patriot would get a chuckle out of seeing that post as a reply on each nasty one as you both go through and read them. See that little devil is already coming out. LOL

Casper1974
Guest

Well, God is great – but the devil keeps things interesting. And to be truthful…..I like posting those kinds of responses because I’ve found that responding with humor will usually make someone think about what they’re saying long enough to make them feel slightly ashamed of their snarky behavior…….Now, the question is – am I a nice person for responding nicely? Or am I a mean person for enjoying shaming someone into behaving better??????? Hmmmmmm….

Reba
Guest

Yes, God is great! Yeah, occasional I just get tired of the BS going back and forth and I need to be a little bad in a good
way. I still say, your post is perfect, because what can someone say to it?
I think the later one. LOL

Cheers to you for that! That being said…..(and I’m not trying to be condescending here) – I would like you to consider the sources where you get your news….is it mostly mainstream media (TV)?

The only surprise is that the FBI actually targeted Democrats. But Mr. West you are no position to talk about those on leave with pay. Your claim to being among the 1% is funded by your one trip to congress with paychecks for life. Your military pension is earned and well deserved. But the deal congress gets is just absurd.

Maybe they targeted Democrats because the GOOD GUYS are infiltrating the Corrupt Scum Bags.

After reading daily reports on corruption, greed and sleaze in this world, I was pretty disheartened about America until the landslide in Washington state.
