More Democrat Corruption: Eddie Bernice Johnson, Texas 30th Congressional District
By Douglas V. Gibbs
Rangel and Waters, step aside, there is more corruption in the Democrat Party out there than just you.
Ahh, now there is Eddie Bernice Johnson.
Wow, does the lack of ethics, and rampant corruption, of the Democrat Party ever cease?
Then again, it is in the Left's nature to lie, cheat, steal, and do whatever else they believe it takes to push forward their wicked agenda.
Eddie Bernice Johnson represents Texas’s 30th Congressional district. This district entails much of the city of Dallas and other parts of Dallas County. Apparently, Ms. Johnson has awarded thousands of dollars in college scholarships to four relatives and a top aide’s two children since 2005, using foundation funds set aside for black lawmakers’ causes. Under the anti-nepotism rules of the Congressional Black Caucus, the recipients were ineligible for the money.
But, since Johnson is black, expect the race card to be pulled out on this one, just as it was with Rangel and Waters.
Johnson, of course, denied any wrong doing originally. She later acknowledged in a statement released by her office that she had violated the rules, but (are you ready for the denial of responsibility?) said she had done so “unknowingly” and would work with the foundation to “rectify the financial situation.”
Isn't ignorance of the law (or rules of your own organizations) no excuse?
Oh, wait, she's a Democrat. . . which gives her a pass, right?
Just ask Louisiana's William Jefferson.
Of course, if she had been a Republican, the prosecution would move rapidly, and her political career would be ruined forever. Hell, if you are a Republican, you can't even misspell a word.
