Why is it every time we turn around, a Democrat is under investigation?
From D.C. to local politics, Democrats just can’t keep their hands out of the cookie jar.
Take this one story, for instance. A mayor from the town of Rochester, NY was recently indicted in a campaign finance fraud last October.
That’s bad enough, being caught up in a campaign finance scandal. But there’s more. Only recently state troopers raided her home.
From Fox News:
State police troopers spent several hours searching the home of Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren on Wednesday, saying it was part of a criminal investigation but disclosing no details.
But we do know, however, that someone was nabbed during the sweep.
From NY Post:
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren’s husband is in custody after state troopers executed a search warrant at her home Wednesday night.
Warren’s husband, Timothy Granison, was the subject of the criminal investigation, and was detained by law enforcement, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
Dang. First, the mayor is caught up in her own indictment. Now, her husband has been arrested.
From what we can gather, police are giving little details related to this sting. They are calling it an “ongoing criminal investigation,” so specifics are sparse.
But that alone is pretty damaging. Criminal investigations that led to search and arrest warrants are no small matter.
And, surprise, surprise, it’s another Democrat and their spouse.
Why is it that so many Democrats are caught with their pants down? Especially when it comes to money?
It probably has to do with the fact that many on the left see public service as some kind of “get rich quick scheme.”
When you’re at the higher end, you can rack in all kinds of cash just from your notoriety (see: Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden). But when you’re still at the local level, that’s a bit harder.
So, Democrats in local government sometimes get a little too greedy and take money that doesn’t belong to them.
Often, drugs and other crimes are connected as well. What forced the cops to arrest this man? I guess we’ll find out soon.
- A Democrat mayor from New York’s home was raided as police arrested her husband.
- Mayor Lovely Warren was previously indicted over campaign finance fraud.
- Police have yet to disclose the reason for his arrest, but it is part of an “ongoing criminal investigation.”
