Another day, another corrupt Democrat has pleaded guilty to committing serious crimes and faces prison time.
It sure seems like when a city or state is run by Democrats, there’s always high crime and rampant corruption.
And this theory is especially true after another liberal lawmaker was just caught breaking the law.
Dennis Tyler, the Democratic mayor of Muncie, Indiana, was arrested at his home on Monday morning by the FBI amid a massive corruption probe.
“I can confirm an arrest warrant was executed at the home of Mayor Dennis Tyler this morning and he is currently in custody,” said Christine Bavender, a spokesperson for the FBI.
Tyler is accused of accepting a $5,000 bribe from federal agents and could face up to 10 years in prison.
The Star Press reports:
U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler scheduled a press conference, with FBI agents, to discuss the arrest and charges. Tyler is accused of accepting a $5,000 bribe in exchange for what federal authorities said was “steering lucrative excavation work to a local contractor.”
According to the indictment, Tyler received the cash from Tracy Barton, the Muncie Sanitary District’s superintendent of sewer maintenance and engineering, for “awarding of contracts under Tyler’s influence.”
A federal investigation of allegations of corruption in and near the Tyler administration has been under way for nearly four years.
The probe apparently began in early 2016 with allegations against Craig Nichols, at that time Tyler’s building commissioner.
Last January, Nichols pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering, and was sentenced to two years in federal prison.
The mayor faces up to 10 years in federal prison if convicted.
