Things are looking tough for the scandal-ridden Democratic Party. When it rains it pours!!!
The latest is Charlotte, N.C., mayor Patrick Cannon. According to an affidavit filed in federal court, Cannon touted his connections to President Obama while taking bribes.
Nine days – nine days – after being elected mayor in December 2013, Cannon met with undercover agents posing as real-estate developers promising smooth approval of a streetcar line and touting his connections with President Obama, the affidavit states.
“So, you know, Friday I’m meeting with the President,” Cannon said, according to the affidavit. “Well, first I’m meeting with the Secretaries, all the Secretaries. And then, I’ll be meeting with the President and the President will be asking what my priorities are. I’m gonna say the Gold LYNX Line’s a priority and I want to see that through.”
In California, Democrats are reeling from the arrest and/or conviction of a third state senator. The latest there was Sen. Leland Yee of San Franscisco who was arrested on federal corruption charges for accepting more than $42,000 in bribes to influence legislation and “introduce an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker.”
Republicans, who have been struggling to regain their political footing, have sought to capitalize on the wave of criminal charges as a way to undo Democrats’ dominance in the Legislature. Republicans have repeatedly tried to expel Sen. Rod Wright of Inglewood after he was convicted of perjury and voter fraud in January for lying about his legal residence in Los Angeles County. Democratic leaders have blocked those efforts, though.
LOL……..oh it’s getting so good!!!
