State. Sen. Otoniel “Tony” Navarrete is facing seven felonies for child sex crimes after allegedly molesting and forcing oral sex on a boy who was 12 or 13 years old at the time and his younger brother.

In a secretly recorded phone call detailed in the probable cause statement that led to his arrest, Navarrete, a Phoenix Democrat, apologized to the older victim.

“I’m sorry, mijo,” Navarrete said in the Aug. 5 conversation, according to Phoenix police officer Javier Quezada.:snip:

Weinstein Fixers Donated to the Biden Campaign and Serve in the White House

President Joe Biden has links to multiple Democratic operatives and a private security firm that served as "fixers" for convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein.

One of Biden’s White House advisers is Anita Dunn, a longtime political operative who advised Weinstein ahead of a bombshell story in 2017 about his sexual misconduct. Biden’s campaign last year hired a private intelligence firm, K2 Intelligence, that years earlier collected dirt on one of Weinstein’s accusers in order to block a criminal investigation of the producer.

David Boies, a prominent Democratic attorney who represented Weinstein, gave $130,600 to the Biden Victory Fund, a pro-Biden political action committee, and $5,600 to Biden’s campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Once one of Hollywood’s most powerful producers, Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison in March 2020. Dozens of women have accused him of sexual assault and other misconduct.

Boies, Dunn, and K2 Intelligence have all been accused of helping Weinstein either smear women who accused him of sexual abuse, or avoid negative publicity for his misdeed:snip:

I'm sure you can find more than 10 just on this thread. These 10 are supported by this organization - they probably don't have enough funds to keep up with all of them:lol:

Mayor Warren pleads guilty in campaign finance trial

 

 

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A plea deal has been reached in the case against Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren on alleged campaign finance violations and Mayor Warren has pleaded guilty.

This will also satisfy the gun and child endangerment charges against her that stem from the New York State Police raid of her house back in May.:snip:

Tennessee state senator found guilty of 4 wire fraud counts

A jury on Thursday convicted a Tennessee state senator charged with using federal grant money awarded to a health care school she operated on her wedding, a political campaign event and other personal expenses.

A 12-person federal jury decided state Sen. Katrina Robinson was guilty of four of five counts of wire fraud. Robinson already had been acquitted by a judge on 15 of 20 charges sought by federal prosecutors in Memphis, where Robinson’s school for health care workers is located. The monetary total of the original charges alleged she stole more than $600,000, but after the majority of charges were acquitted, the total was about $3,400.

 

Robinson, a Memphis Democrat elected to the Tennessee General Assembly in 2018, was charged in July 2020 with wire fraud as well as theft and embezzlement involving government programs after the FBI searched the school and her home.:snip:

In Another Day Ending In "Y", L.A. Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas Is Indicted on Corruption Charges

Los Angeles City Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas was indicted Wednesday on federal charges of taking bribes from a former USC dean in exchange for supporting millions of dollars in L.A. County contracts with the university when he was on the county Board of Supervisors.

A federal grand jury accused Ridley-Thomas of conspiring with Marilyn Louise Flynn, then dean of USC’s School of Social Work, to steer county money to the university in return for admitting his son Sebastian into graduate school with a full-tuition scholarship and a paid professorship.

The 20-count indictment alleges that Flynn and Ridley-Thomas also concocted a scheme to funnel $100,000 from one of his campaign committees through the university to a nonprofit where his son would work.

Ridley-Thomas, 66, one of the most powerful political figures in Los Angeles, and Flynn each face charges of conspiracy, bribery, mail and wire fraud.:snip:

CA SEIU Exec. Director Indicted on Corruption Charges; It Couldn't Have Happened to a Nicer Union Stooge

:snip:

Moscoso was charged with failing to pay more than $16,000 in employment taxes for his business. He also had over $300,000 in unreported wages for his employees, ultimately owing more than $80,000 to the state’s Employment Development Department, according to the complaint.

The couple was also charged with multiple counts of tax fraud for underreporting their income by about $1.4 million from 2014 to 2018.:snip:

Dem Pols Profit From Forcing COVID Tests on Cops, Firefighters

We are wearily accustomed to political corruption in Los Angeles. Seldom does a week go by without some new scandalous revelation or criminal indictment involving a city councilman or some other scrounger at the local public trough. Right on schedule recently came the news that Mark Ridley-Thomas, a career politician currently serving on the L.A. city council, was indicted for bribery for alleged acts he committed while sitting on the L.A. County board of supervisors. One of his council colleagues, Jose Huizar, is already under indictment for bribery, and he has adopted the brazen defense that the $1.5 million in “gifts” he received from real estate developers doing business in Los Angeles were not really bribes. (Good luck with that. These “gifts” included private jet travel, casino gambling, and liaisons with prostitutes.)

:snip:The city has awarded a $3 million contract for COVID-19 testing to a company called Bluestone, which is partly owned by Pedram Salimpour, a Los Angeles doctor. By the most remarkable of coincidences, he also sits on the commission that oversees the city’s fire and police pension plan. And, by another of the most unlikely of coincidences, Salimpour is one of those deep-pocket players who donate lavishly to Democratic candidates, including former city councilman Mitch Englander, who earlier this year was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison, and the above-mentioned Mark Ridley-Thomas, who may soon be Englander’s cell mate.:snip:

Ex-Chicago Alderman Ed Vrdolyak ordered to prison after pandemic-delayed sentence

A former Chicago alderman was ordered this week to report to prison by Nov. 30 in a tax evasion sentence delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Edward Vrdolyak, 83, was convicted last December of getting $12 million in fees in connection to a $9 billion Illinois tobacco settlement without doing any work on the case legally. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison, according to FOX 32 of Chicago. 

He also pleaded guilty in 2019 to obstructing an IRS investigation by helping a lawyer evade $800,000 in taxes related to the settlement, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. :snip:

Another corrupt union exposed in bribery scandal with Philly Democrats

Christopher Tremoglie

November 18, 2021

As former President Donald Trump once said, bad things really do happen in Philadelphia — really bad things. The string of bad things continued this past week. Already in the midst of record-setting homicide rates, with a district attorney who cares more about criminals than innocent victims, Philadelphia now has the dubious distinction of adding a corrupt City Council to its list of shame. Earlier this week, powerful Philadelphia IBEW Local 98 union boss John Dougherty and City Councilman Bobby Henon were both found guilty of conspiracy and fraud.

The revelation that a Philadelphia union boss and a Democratic city councilman are corrupt is perhaps not so shocking, but the sinful greed and egregious acts involved here are. These scumbags were trying to “wet their beak” at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, preventing the hospital from using nonunion employees to install MRI machines.

This week’s verdict is the conclusion of a long process that started back in 2016, when the FBI raided offices and properties connected to Henon and Dougherty. Dougherty was the alleged kingpin, and Henon was the local government official who did the grunt work and carried out Dougherty’s demands, according to the evidence presented at the trial .

Prosecutors alleged that Dougherty, a South Philadelphia resident, had effectively bought Henon's vote by supplying him with a salary, benefits, tickets to Eagles games, and other perks. Henon was accused of carrying out Dougherty's personal, professional, and financial agenda in the public sphere, especially to help steer construction contracts to allies and friends.
