U.S. Congressperson Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) has been found guilty of numerous corruption charges by a jury of his peers.

This is a beauty.

All kinds of illegal stuff going on for a long time it seems.

One good one is he borrowed $1 million from somebody while he was running for Mayor of Philadelphia.

Then he pays part of the loan back using funds from charitable and federal grants received by his nonprofit.

And he also paid some of his Son's student loans back from campaign donations.

A few more things as well.

He will probably end up in prison for a long time.


Congressman Fattah guilty on all charges in corruption case


Rep. Chaka Fattah found guilty on corruption charges



Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) on Tuesday was found guilty of all charges in a federal corruption trial.

Fattah and four associates had been charged with 29 counts related to bribery, money laundering, fraud and racketeering.

After Tuesday's conviction, Fattah could face a lengthy prison term. The charges related to conspiracy, falsification of records and mail fraud each carry sentences of up to 20 years in prison.

Fattah borrowed $1 million from a donor during his unsuccessful campaign for Philadelphia mayor and later repaid part of the loan by using funds from charitable and federal grants received by his nonprofit.

The Justice Department said Fattah also used funds from his mayoral and congressional campaigns to help pay off his son’s student loan debt.


Political Longevity at Work !!!

Man, if only they would be as thorough investigating that with from Arkansas, then our country future may actually be safe. Minus one from PA, that should help out for election time, even if only a little bit.

That is what U.S. Congressperson Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.) gets for not going along with the governments agendas. Congress threw him under the bus, for not towing the line in my "opinion".

This is not the first time they have done this. As if most of Congress has not broken Constitutional Laws, The just did it, when they past anti-gun Laws on Americans on the government illegal Watch list.

Disgusting.

"Then he pays part of the loan back using funds from charitable and federal grants received by his nonprofit." Sounds like he should be in charge of a church.

His wife, Renea, was on our local news channel 10, out of Philly, for years, even before she married him, then had her name hyphenated. She hasn't been on, since all of this, so I don't know if they retired her or what......interesting developments.....

What's funny is this guy's crimes are less than 0.00001% of what Hillary is guilty of.

Sorry, the wolves only "sacrifice" one lamb every year.

That's how the brotherhood of wolves operate. All are wolves. But, some are more wolf and others are more sheep.

So, every year, about the same time, they pick the lamb with "least blemish", the purest among their lot, and "sacrifice" him in public view.

That way, all the wolves try to be more wolf-like, so as not to be "chosen" as next year's sacrifice. And by publically crucifying one of their own every year, the public thinks they are cleaning house, getting rid of the bad apples.

Little does the public suspect, what they are seeing is the least corrupt politician being outed, the purest lamb, being slaughtered to maintain that image that the rest are pure and virtuous.

In this way, the true wolves are kept separate from the true sheep.

Know then, that this is the true secret of the mystery of the sacrifice of the lamb.
