Now for the fun part.
Did you job for you in searching for council members accused of corruption.
Philadelphia City Councilmember Kenyatta Johnson twice came to the rescue of a financially struggling nonprofit desperate to hold on to its real estate holdings in his district — but his assistance, federal authorities said Wednesday, always came at a price.
In a 43-page indictment, prosecutors charged the three-term Democrat and his wife, Dawn Chavous, with accepting more than $66,750 in bribes in 2013 and 2014 from two executives at Universal Companies, the South Philadelphia community development charity and charter school operator founded by the renowned music producer Kenny Gamble.
Surprise – another D. Later in the article says he is the 2nd D council member to be indicted on corruption charges.
Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar, long suspected of being a target in a sweeping corruption probe involving a “pay-to-play” scheme at City Hall, was arrested Tuesday on a federal racketeering charge.
Huizar, who represents L.A.'s Council District 14, was taken into custody by FBI agents at his Boyle Heights home, according to Laura Eimiller, spokesperson for the FBI’s L.A. field office.
He has been charged with “conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act,” federal prosecutors said in a news release, alleging he agreed to accept at least $1.5 million in bribes.
Oooooh another D Council member that was corrupt.
New Orleans City Councilmember-at-Large Jason Williams has been indicted by a federal grand jury on 11 counts including fraud and tax charges, according to a court document.
Yup another D council member.
