It sometimes appears that every time you look there is another Democrat involved in another scandal and too often, they face no consequences.
But since President Donald Trump has been elected and his Justice Department is stocked full of those who enforce the law, the steak of Democrats getting away with crimes is over.
West Philadelphia State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell is likely headed to prison after she has resigned from her position as a state representative.
She is facing eight corruption charges, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro. Announced at a press conference.
He said that Johnson-Harrell, the first Muslim Congresswoman in the state’s history, had stolen more than $500,000 from Motivations Education and Consultation Associates, a nonprofit she founded.
He said that she spent the funds that she funneled of luxury items like furs, vacations and her campaign to win her seat in the state’s House of Representatives.
The Congresswoman agreed to resign from her position and plead guilty to the charges against her including tampering with public records, perjury, theft by deception, theft by unlawful taking, and contributions of corporations, Philadelphia Magazine reported.
“I am saddened and dismayed by the nature of the allegations brought against me,” she said in an interview with Philadelphia Magazine.
“I vigorously dispute most of these allegations. I intend to accept responsibility for any wrongdoings that I have done before I took office. I have always fought for the people of West Philadelphia to the best of my ability.”
“Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell remains a woman dedicated to ending gun violence in Philadelphia and focused on the well-being of all Philadelphians,” her attorney, Jessica Natali, said.
“We are in the early stage of this case and will not address its merits in the media. This matter will be resolved with the attorney general’s office and ultimate disposition will be addressed in a court room at an appropriate time.”
But her fight was short lived as she has agreed to resign from her spot in the House of Representatives, not that she had a ton of options, to “do what is best for the people that live (in my) district.”
“I have been proud to represent the 190th District,” she said. “I cannot become a distraction for my friends and neighbors who need so much. I thus will be stepping aside as representative later this month.”
The donations to her sham charity were supposed to go to help those with mental disabilities and those who were poor and addicted to drugs, but where they went were into the pockets of Johnson-Harrell.
It is a pattern with the Democrat Party in the city of Philadelphia, the Inquirer said, with scandals involving “Johnny Doc, Vince Fumo, Chaka Fattah, Leslie Acosta, Renee Tartaglione, and the entirety of our city’s traffic court.”
But are voters in the City Of Brotherly Love are not going to start voting Republican. They have been indoctrinated for decades to believe that the Democrats are the people who have their best interests in mind.
And no matter how many times it is proven to them that Democrats are the aster of lying and stealing they will continue to vote for them.
