Oh The Schadenfreude

is flowing like a river today. Trump wins again in the recounts. Wins again when Josh Earnest can’t get his lies straight on whether it was China or Russia who supposedly hacked a “closed” system and rigged the election for trump (when they really would have, if they truly hacked it), picked the puppet Hillary Rotten Clinton. And now this…

EXCERPT:  “(Reuters) – Former U.S. Representative Chaka Fattah, who served in Congress for more than 20 years, was sentenced on Monday to 10 years in federal prison for orchestrating a series of frauds to enrich himself and boost his political career, U.S. prosecutors said. 

Fattah, 60, represented parts of Philadelphia from 1995 until resigning earlier this year after being convicted in June on more than 20 counts of racketeering, bribery and fraud. He had already lost the Democratic primary in April amid the corruption scandal.

Fattah misappropriated hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign, charity and taxpayer money in multiple unrelated schemes stretching over several years, according to prosecutors.

Some of the frauds stemmed from his unsuccessful bid in 2007 to become Philadelphia’s mayor, a campaign that left him deeply in debt to several supporters.”

and

EXCERPT:  “In a third scheme, Fattah used another consultant, Gregory Naylor, to transfer campaign money to pay off his son’s student debt. The son, Chaka Fattah Jr., was convicted in an unrelated federal fraud case (felony bank and tax fraud Feb 2016). and sentenced to five years in prison.”

Maybe they can be cellmates! And if a few Obomunists end up in Club Fed, they can have a reunion!

    Chaka Fattah. Chaka Fattah Junior. The names tell me all I need to know.

    Re the Russian “hacks”: Do not laugh this one off, folks. Several of the electors may be (to quote Jonathan Gruber) “ignorant” enough to believe this sh*t. And most of them, being private citizens and not warriors like us, may well cave to protect their privacy and their reputations, rather than do the right thing. This ain’t over yet, not by a long shot.

      SafeSpace,

      Even so, it ends up on the House of Reps and Trump still wins. This is just the same shit they pulled with Gore/Bush only we’re not playing and neither is Trump.

    I love it when a plan comes together:
    SOROS’ rats are being forced over board, put in prison, or jumping ship

    2 down, hundreds to go. But, it’s a start.

    ‘Fattah’ eh? Well I expect he won’t be staying ‘Fattah’ on a ten-year diet of prison food. Good to see and let’s have more of it please. Being in politics does NOT excuse you for crimes.

    About time too. $2 says he and his son were low hanging fruit. The real criminals in politics are still hard at work.

    Still good news though.

    I just found this on an Aussie news site:

    Good for a laugh. If I was an employer I’d be thinking “well that saves me some payroll this week!” Check out the Rems woman. Just by looking at her for the first time she is indelibly printed ‘Democrat’, probably a real whiny one too.
