I read with some humor coming out of the Democrat & Chronicle about another NYS senator accused of ripping the system off. Democrat or Republican: per usual, the news omitted the party affiliation of Senator John Sampson. Well, I did a little digging because I think the public should know. Fact: a Democrat. To give him credit, the site tells of his interest in young students. Congratulations. Why cannot these politicians do as they preach? Now, I am not down on him because I have no say since I live in western NYS, away from the crooked dealings coming out of New York City politics. Of course the people can thank the union bosses for that and the voters who repeatedly put them in office time and again. Their ignorance and inept behavior toward making the voting system a living symbol of American integrity is just about (0).
What are the charges? Well, as a prelude, it involves the investigations into state corruption. An accusation does not mean guilt. According to the D&C which tends to favor pro-union and liberal Democrat, it is alleged that he embezzled funds while acting as a court-appointed referee for home foreclosure proceedings in the mid-2000s’. They also allege he persuaded a real estate developer to loan him nearly $200,000 to cover up the theft in exchange for political favors. A Brooklyn federal court judge threw out the embezzlement charges but allowed the other charge which was based upon the testimony of the broker, Edul Ahmad, who pleaded guilty to mortgage fraud charges.
I bring this up because the lies and truth seem to be mixed within the cracks of the judicial process and been long standing seen corruption issues voiced at times by either party or the press.
Now, I just got the Saturday D&C and find a Republican politician and a former FBI agent corrupt to the hilt. Well, well. Will wonders never cease. The whole damn country is going to HELL. Thank you Donald Trump for opening the door to my calling it like it is: Hell! Be damned you liberal leftwing fruitcakes. This word is in the dictionary!
