Corrupt politicians are parasites–like leeches
How many out-and-out crooks and villains do we have in our government?
Well, there’s gonna be one less.
Former Representative Michael “Ozzie” Meyers, Pennsylvania Democrat who served in Congress for two terms, 1976-1980, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison, plus a $100,000 fine, by a U.S. District Court judge (https://slaynews.com/news/judge-throws-book-at-ex-dem-congressman-sentences-him-to-30-months-in-prison-for-election-fraud/).
This guy’s a pip. He spent three years in jail in the 1980s, for his role in a major corruption scandal. Retiring early from active politics, he went behind the scenes to specialize in skullduggery. The court found him guilty of election fraud in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Bribery, adding or subtracting votes as needed–the usual Democrat bag of tricks. He was also said to have been involved in juicier crimes that weren’t included in this latest court case.
Meanwhile, there’s Andrew Cuomo running around with $15 million (!) in his political action committee that he’ll never have to give back. Politics been very, very good to him! That he was all but chased out of office under a shower of stones won’t stop him from attempting a comeback.
You go into office with no money to speak of and you come out with millions.
Not nice. Not honest. Why do we let these people do this to us?
