Democrats continue to show the nation they’re the party of the corrupt, and yet somehow they still manage to garner votes.
A mayor from Florida was just busted for money laundering in an FBI sting.
From New York Post:
Authorities say the mayor of Hallandale Beach has been arrested on three felony charges following an undercover FBI investigation.
The Broward State Attorney’s Office said in a news release Thursday that Mayor Joy Cooper has surrendered on the charges. It wasn’t immediately clear if she has a lawyer to represent her.
The felony charges are money laundering, official misconduct and exceeding campaign contribution limits. Prosecutors say Cooper, a Democrat, also is charged with the misdemeanor soliciting contributions in a government building.
Daily Wire has more:
The felonies Cooper faces carry a maximum of a five-year prison sentence each and the misdemeanor a one-year sentence. Cooper has been the Mayor of Hallandale Beach for approximately 13 years and previously served on the city’s commission.
More from Local 10:
Investigator Kate Abrahamsen reported Cooper solicited campaign contributions from Koslow that exceeded the legal limit, accepted money that she believed were the proceeds of unlawful activity and falsified campaign treasury reports in September and October of 2012.
Abrahmsen reported Koslow was unaware that the wealthy California land developers seeking political favor for commercial land projects were really undercover FBI agents. He reportedly also set up meetings with Cooper at her home, at the Flash Back Diner, at the Diplomat and handed her 20 checks “from a bunch of Russian names” at a Hallandale Chamber of Commerce event.
Cooper’s attorney, Larry Davis, said he is extremely disappointed in the state attorney’s office for relying on Koslow, who was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison. And Cooper, who walked out of jail Thursday night, said she was going to “vigorously” fight the accusations.
Lock her up.
Justice must be served!
