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.
Atlantic City, New Jersey, Democrat Mayor Frank Gilliam has resigned after pleading guilty to one count of wire fraud.
The Democratic mayor now faces a 20-year prison sentence for stealing roughly $87,000 from a youth basketball club, court records show.
That’s right: he stole just shy of $100,000 from a youth basketball organization, which was supposed to help children in the city.
He only resigned after threats to have him voted out of office.
“It is with a heavy heart that I tender my resignation as mayor of Atlantic City effective immediately,” Gilliam wrote in his resignation letter.
“I would like to apologize to the residents of the great city of Atlantic City who deserve civility and respect. My sincere apologies to each constituent that voted for me and had high hopes for my tenure,” he added.

Seems like a lot of high-profile lawmakers have been in hot water lately for their actions.
In the past few months, at least seven corrupt Democrats have been charged and arrested.
Below are a few examples:
–Former Democratic Texas State District Judge Rudy Delgado was sentenced to five years in federal prison after a major FBI sting operation. Delgado was arrested and charged with taking bribes in exchange for giving favorable rulings in his courtroom for more than a decade.
–FBI agents were seen on Tuesday carrying brown evidence bags as they raided Democratic Illinois State Senator Martin Sandoval’s offices as part of an “ongoing criminal investigation.” The raids are rumored to be connected to Sandoval playing a key role in helping implement a 19-cent increase in the gas tax to help fund Democratic Governor J.B. Prtizker’s $45 billion plan to rebuild roads, bridges, and schools.
–Sherikia Hawkins, a prominent city clerk for Southfield, Michigan, was arrested and charged this week for allegedly forging records and falsely marking at least 200 absentee ballots as invalid during the 2018 midterm election. She is now facing six felony charges for the stunning election crimes.
–Ed Buck, who has spent decades donating serious money to prominent Democrats such as Obama and the Clintons, was arrested and charged with running a drug house. Two young black men have been found dead in the past 18 months inside Buck’s apartment.
–Fall River Democratic Mayor Jasiel Correia was arrested on charges that he conspired to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars from companies seeking to operate marijuana businesses.
–A Democrat superior court judge in Massachusetts was arrested for assault and battery after she attacked her wife inside their home. Judge Shannon Frison allegedly “forcibly grabbed” her wife’s hair while she was holding a young child.
–A Democratic Indiana state representative and firefighter was arrested and charged after impersonating a police officer and trying to buy cocaine while driving under the influence.
