One of the worst corruption scandals just struck a major American city, and children are paying the price.
This time around, a Democrat had no morals in Texas and couldn’t help but take advantage of the people he was supposed to serve. happened in Texas.
He and his thugs took bribes, kickbacks, and other perks in exchange for favors. Truly the very worst a leader can do in office (aside from sex abuse).
What makes it even worse? The crimes bankrupted country schools, a company, and businessman. It near crippled vital infrastructure to the region.
But as long as a few liberal made out like bandits, right? This time, at least, a U.S. attorney caught them red-handed.
Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway (D) pleaded guilty to federal corruption charges Thursday morning, said Erin Nealy Cox, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas.
In a press conference, Cox announced Caraway, 66, was part of a scheme that bankrupted Dallas County Schools (DCS), a bus agency, along with businessman Bob Leonard, who owned the surveillance company that took millions from DCS.
She said Leonard paid Caraway and Rick Sorrells, the former DCS superintendent, more than $3.5 million in bribes, kickbacks, and other benefits. In April, Sorrells pleaded guilty to accepting more than $3 million…
Caraway is not the first Democrat to be caught playing this kind of game. All too often career politicians use their status as a means to make a quick cash.
It’s just that the sheer amount of money stolen is staggering. These leaders were so corrupt, they didn’t even mind they bankrupted the county schools.
After everything liberals say about helping the education system—they go and do this? Perhaps the teacher’s unions should rethink their allegiance.
After being outed for his crimes, Caraway resigned. In his letter, he went on and on about how he dedicated much of his life to “serving others.” Riiiight. More like he was serving himself to their cash.
It’s amazing how contrite and repentant these politicians are, after they’re caught. Caraway would have been happy continuing his career for many years—had he not been exposed. He would have never admitted his wrongdoing.
Now he’s all apologies. How much more damage would he have caused had he stayed in office?
And how many more Democrats are out there like him?
