The DNC has been in for a big reality check with the new administration running the show. All of the underhanded trades and dirty business dealings they’ve been able to sweep under the rug, are now having a spotlight shown on them.
Case in point is Senator Thomas Oaks from Baltimore, Maryland. He’s been arrested on charges of corruption and faces up to 20 years in prison if he’s convicted of honest service wire fraud. The (not so) good Senator has served just two months in office before his alleged corrupt behavior began in September of 2015. Honest service fraud is a federal charge for corrupt behavior conducted by public officials, wherein they favor one party over another for personal gain.
The corrupt senator was caught by an undercover FBI agent that was introduced to then-State Delegate Oaks. The Agent was posing as a businessman from out of town and The business the undercover agent claimed to work for was a real business that had an agreement with the FBI. The agent expressed to Oaks his interest in obtaining government contracts in Baltimore. At the first meeting, the undercover agent brought another individual and recorded the conversation. all future conversations between Oaks and the undercover investigator.
One of the contracts that the agent was attempting to secure was related to Housing and Urban Development. Oaks sent many letters to the government using his official letterhead in support of his newfound friend. Oaks also filed a bond on behalf of the undercover agent to receive $250,000 in taxpayer money. This money would otherwise fund the HUD project. Over the course of the next year while the investigation went on, the FBI agent paid Oaks over $15k for writing letters, directing bonds and generally supporting his bid for the projects.
While the FBI has known that the corruption existed for about two years, they were unable to act until Obama left office. Delegate Oaks’ corruption had to have been known to Democrats and still, they supported his rise to Senator in 2017.
Unfortunately for them, the gravy train has ended and Sessions will be putting a stop to all the illegal shenanigans that have been going unchecked during the Obama administration.
