Another day, another sign that democrats are crooks.
Behind all the virtue signaling and poetic speeches, democrats are working to rob America. They claim they care about helping the poor, working class, and everyday Americans. But in truth they are only in it to benefit themselves.
We see this time and again, when they back policies and laws that help their rich donors. Often enough, those laws hurt you and me, or raise our taxes to shocking heights.
Throughout last year we were forced to watch as democrats got away with a litany of crimes. DNC chairwoman Wasserman-Schulz was betraying her own party to help Hillary Clinton. Donna Brazile, another DNC head, was passing along debate questions.
And of course Clinton herself had broken the law to use a private email server. This to hide the fact she was taking cash from foreign interests in exchange for favors.
Now we are learning about another influential democrat, who was caught cheating kids. This one really takes the cake.
From Free Beacon:
Prosecutors wrapped up their closing arguments Monday in the tax evasion and fraud trial of former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown (Fla.) by telling jurors the evidence overwhelmingly shows that Brown used her ‘charitable organization’ to illegally benefit herself and staffers.
The prosecution added that Brown’s actions effectively led to needy children being robbed of scholarships.
“The real victims are all of those worthy kids who could have gotten scholarships, who needed a leg up. That’s who she robbed from, those kids,” Eric G. Olshan, one of the prosecutors, said during the one-hour closing arguments against Brown, Jacksonville.com reported.
Brown’s so-called charity was supposed to be raising money for student scholarships. It was supposed to help needy kids get into college.
Instead out of the $800,000 raised, only $1,200 went to help the students.
Where did all the money go? At least $200,000 of it went towards NFL tickets, luxury vacations, plane tickets, car repairs, and lavish events. All for the foundation’s staff. The rest? Who knows.
This is a disgusting abuse of trust. Yet it is right out of the left’s playbook. For years the Clintons have been funneling cash into their pockets through their “Foundation.” Yet they have not been brought up on charges, because they either have the right connections in government or know how to hide it.
Brown wasn’t as clever and got roasted. But how many more wolves do we have among the sheep? How many so-called leaders are cheating the American public?
We may never know.
