Another Federal level elected politician is under indictment for corruption.

This time it's Representative Chaka Fattah of Pennsylvania.

And naturally, he had some cohorts indicted too.


Bribery (Naw)

Conspiracy (HaHa)

Mail fraud (oops)

Bank fraud (Oo lala)

Falsification of records (Hmmm)

Money laundering (Shocking)

Racketeering (ghastly)


In office for a long time.

Probably prison for a long time soon.


Rep. Chaka Fattah (D, PA-02) indicted for all SORTS of political corruption, really



REP. CHAKA FATTAH INDICTED IN RACKETEERING CASE

…[Five people were] charged today in a 29-count indictment with participating in a racketeering conspiracy and other crimes, including bribery; conspiracy to commit mail, wire and honest services fraud; and multiple counts of mail fraud, falsification of records, bank fraud, making false statements to a financial institution and money laundering, the U.S. Attorney said.

Needless to say, the word ‘Democrat’ appears nowhere in that article (neither does it appear here). It’s still compelling reading: allegedly Chaka Fattah (who is a Democrat, by the way) used the time period between 2007 and 2011 to repeatedly enrich himself, family members, and select third parties at the expense of the public purse. That this time period also dovetails neatly with Democratic control of Congress is absolutely no surprise to me, and should not be a surprise to anybody else. You get the feeling that oversight wasn’t exactly Nancy Pelosi’s primary interest at that point. Overlooking? Sure. Oversight? …Not so much.



Ignore the Party affiliations. He is just another criminal.



Has He Been "Set-up" ?

Ha, it looks like Mike Honda, who is also under investigation, is replacing him.

Chaka gets in trouble and all the others uncomfortably contort their necks, looking the other way
(while praying that their secrets don't come to light like Chaka's)

No this thread is not about Dean Skelos. You know the stories you or the OP would not touch with a 10 foot pole.
