Pension? Hell, if he ran again he would probably win back his Congressional district. African American politicians seem never to get voted out. Look at Marion "White Powder" Barry or the cosmic incompetence or Ray "Chocolate City" Nagin. Conyers taking Congressional meetings in his BVD's. Look at Hussein...14% real unemployment and he gets his ambassador killed 6 weeks before the election and he STILL gets reelected.

Seems like "Cold Cash" should have been prosecuted for money laundering and tax evasion.

Unfortunately "blackness" is more important to many (apparently most) "blacks" than "justness," "competence," "righteousness," or even "American-ness."

This seems to trace back to the 1960s round about the Johnson era, but I'm not entirely clear on how or why.

Democrat running for Congress indicted in $803G fraud, embezzlement case


A Democrat running for a U.S. House seat in Virginia has been indicted on charges of fraud, embezzlement and theft in connection with events that allegedly occurred in 2012.

Shaun Brown, 58, appeared in a Norfolk courtroom last week and denied any wrongdoing, the Daily Press of Newport News, Va., reported. She said she intends to fight the charges and be exonerated, the report said.

Brown is next scheduled to appear in court Jan. 12 and will plead not guilty, her attorney, James Ellenson, told the Daily Press.

Prosecutors said Brown received about $803,000 via her nonprofit organization as a participant in a U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program.

They alleged that Brown acquired funds by filing false reimbursement claims with the Virginia Department of Health.

Prosecutors said Brown and others told employees to inflate the figures for the number of meals served to low-income children, and the nonprofit would the pocket the extra reimbursements, the Washington Post reported.

According to the Daily Press, Brown acknowledged that the program had “irregularities” that she hoped to see fixed.

“I want the irregularities corrected,” she said. “I want to see the program improve.”

Earlier in December, Brown filed a suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Virginia Department of Health and others, alleging discrimination against African-Americans, delayed payments, falsified reimbursements and claims for reimbursement, the Daily Press reported.

She and her mother, Jenever Brown, who co-founded the nonprofit, are seeking $10 million in damages, the report said.

In 2016, Brown ran against now-U.S. Rep. Scott W. Taylor, a Republican, for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District seat and lost by 23 points, the Washington Post reported.

In July, Brown told the Virginian-Pilot that she intended to run for the seat again in 2018.

CA #MeToo Lawmaker To Staff: Let’s Play Spin The Bottle, And I’ll Tell You About My Conquests

ED MORRISSEY
Posted at 12:01 pm on February 19, 2018


Let she who has not spun a bottle cast the first keg tap. California state assembly member Cristina Garcia tried to ride the #MeToo bandwagon to a national spotlight — until a former aide and an anonymous lobbyist came forward to accuse her of alcohol-driven sexual harassment. Garcia took a “voluntary” unpaid leave of absence after those allegations emerged, but a new report from Politico suggests that Garcia’s problems with harassment and alcohol go deeper than first thought.

For instance, what’s up with the beer tap in her office?

The industry lobbyist said he was surprised last year when, during a late-morning policy meeting in Garcia’s Capitol office, the assemblywoman poured beer from a kegerator — a refrigerator with a beer tap on top — located in her office.

She offered the brew in red Solo cups to the group of lobbyists, even though it was “sometime between 11 a.m. and noon … a little early,’’ the lobbyist said
.


Politico’s Carla Marinucci asked Garcia’s spokesperson about the propriety of having a beer tap installed in a lawmaker’s office. The spokesperson cited her work on the Assembly Rules committee to issue a “no comment” and to refer the question to the speaker’s office. That ought to endear Garcia even further with her colleague.

However, the beer tap is the least of the problems. Marinucci’s new report makes it clear that alcohol-soaked socializing and listening to her sexual conquests were part of the job requirements in her office. When one aide had the temerity to question whether that was appropriate for an elected official, the self-proclaimed #MeToo leader and chair of the Assembly Women’s Caucus fired him for insubordination:

[David] Kernick’s complaint, filed Saturday and obtained by POLITICO, charges that his termination by the assemblywoman was a direct result of his resistance to the inappropriate behavior by the lawmaker.

The filing states that Garcia “was seemingly not critical of [Kernick’s] work until after he questioned the appropriateness of her suggestion that after a fundraiser at a whiskey bar that Claimant sit on the floor of her hotel room and play spin the bottle.”

The complaint alleges that “shortly after protesting this sexual harassment,” Garcia disciplined Kernick “with a write up for insubordination.” Two days later, according to the complaint, “Garcia fired him.”


Kernick and three other former Garcia staffers issued a public statement last week detailing their experiences in her office. They noted that they never knew where the money came for all the alcohol in the office, which should raise a separate issue with the Rules Committee, but that Garcia’s other behaviors make a mockery of her #MeToo posturing:


Ms. Garcia often spoke, if not bragged, about her sexual activity. She would describe various sex acts in uncomfortable detail. She commonly had these conversations in front of staff members. She seemed to like to make her staff uncomfortable with this type of content. In fact, this content did make us uncomfortable.

Ms. Garcia also spoke of her sexual activities with other elected officials including other members of the Assembly who we will not name in respect for their privacy. She spoke graphically about their sexual activity and stated as fact that they were sexually active in Assembly offices.

Ms. Garcia said that having sex with other elected officials was a good way of getting information; she claimed that she received a lot of information during post-coital (or, in her words, “after they come”) conversations. …

Ms. Garcia commonly and pervasively used vulgar language with, to, at and around staff. For example, she frequently used the “C word” while referring to other women


Oh my. That doesn’t sound particularly respectful of women … or of men, either, for that matter. One other complaint could land Garcia in legal trouble, too:

Sometimes we were asked to perform campaign activities in the Assembly officeincluding fundraising and donation request calls. In addition, there were Assembly staff members that were also campaign staff and they would be on Assembly time but performing campaign activities. There were not strict lines between Assembly resources and campaign resources.

Ms. Garcia and her senior staff also pressured us, to assist other local and statewide candidates and we were reprimanded if we did not take part. Additionally, some members of the staff were directed to help plan Mayor Crespo’s memorial activities along with other assignments that had no legislative purpose.


Does California have a Hatch Act-style law prohibiting the use of legislative resources for campaign activities? If not, perhaps this might prompt the legislature to pass one, or for good-government groups to force one upon the legislature through a referendum. If such a law already exists, Garcia might need to worry less about keeping her office and worry more about spending time in the clink.

What are we to learn from this? Abusive behavior is not limited to gender, and it’s probably not even driven by it. As Kernick says to Marinucci, “powerful women can act the same way as powerful men.” The issue is the combination of power, character, and a lack of accountability structures in places where those qualities are likely to reach their highest amplitude. This letter expresses the character failings of this particular representative, and the need for better accountability structures to prevent abusive behavior in the future — whether it’s by Democrats or Republicans, men or women.

OPINION EDITORIAL

California Dems’ hard-left turn could be the whole party’s future

By Post Editorial Board March 2, 2018 | 6:45pm

How far left is the Democratic Party headed? Look to California, where last month’s state party convention went off the deep end.

The first sign of lunacy was the delegates’ refusal to endorse impeccably liberal Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

She lost out by 37 percent to 54 percent to Kevin de Leon, president pro tempore of the state Senate, who promises mainly to be obsessively anti-Trump.

Similarly, the delegates put former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa last among the party’s four candidates for governor — even though he’s tied in polls of Democratic voters with former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who came out on top at the convention.

Villaraigosa’s sin? As mayor, he supported charter schools and jousted with the teachers unions, rightly calling them “the largest obstacle to creating quality schools.”

Finally, the convention took a sharp anti-Israel turn, adopting planks in support of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement and slapping the Israel Defense Forces.

Historically, the Golden State has been a harbinger of national trends. If that holds true, the whole Democratic Party is headed right . . . er, left . . . off the cliff.





But then we already knew that many people from California were a bit.....different:

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry pleads guilty to theft, resigns after admitting to affair


NASHVILLE -- A month after she admitted to an extramarital affair with her then-bodyguard, Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has pleaded guilty to theft of property and resigned. When Barry first admitted Jan. 31 to having an affair with Sgt. Robert Forrest, she said she planned to stay in office. But on Tuesday she said her time in office has concluded.

Image
A booking photo of Megan Barry METROPOLITAN NASHVILLE POLICE DEPARTMENT

Barry's guilty plea earlier in the day included an agreement for her to resign. She was also fined and sentenced to three years of probation.

The development follows several days of negotiations between Barry's legal team and District Attorney Glenn Funk, CBS affiliate WTVF reported. The negotiations apparently focused on whether Funk would agree not to prosecute Barry in exchange for her resignation.

In court, Funk said that had the case gone to trial, witnesses would have testified that between March 2016 and February 2018 Megan Barry caused over $10,000 and no less than $60,000 of Metro Nashville city funds to be expended unlawfully. =

The revelation of the affair derailed the first term of a mayor who was seen as a rising star among Democrats. It led to an investigation, which found probable cause that a nude photo and partially nude photo of a woman found on Forrest's work cellphone were taken while he was working and the two were engaging in their relationship while he was on duty. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation did not identify the woman in the photos and Barry has said that if the photos are of her, they were taken without her knowledge or permission.

Metro Nashville Police records show Forrest's overtime more than doubled in the budget year after Barry was elected in September 2015. Barry said the affair began in spring 2016, an affidavit said.

Barry has not said when the affair ended, only that it's over. Forrest, who had spent more than 31 years with Metro Nashville Police and supervised the mayor's security detail over three administrations, has retired.

In a news release in late January, the mayor said she accepts full responsibility for the pain she caused her family and the family of Sgt. Robert Forrest, her former security chief. She apologized to her husband, Bruce, who she said remains committed to their marriage. She also apologized to the people of Nashville, adding that she remains firmly committed to working hard to serve them.

"I know God forgives, but the people of Nashville don't have to -- and I also want to ask for their forgiveness," she said in January.
