Democrats always seem to find themselves getting into trouble.
The law doesn’t seem to matter to them.
And one Democrat just found himself behind bars for a disgusting crime he committed.
Sen. Brian Joyce, a former state senator in Massachusetts has been on the radar of the FBI for years.
The 55-year-old Democrat had been suspected of running a criminal enterprise from his office.
He got on their radar after reportedly gaining $1 million through bribes and kickbacks.
But when the FBI investigated, it turned out to be much worse.
When Sen. Joyce was arrested, he was charged with racketeering, extortion, honest service fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to defraud the IRS.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Former Massachusetts state Sen. Brian Joyce was arrested and charged with running his office as a “criminal enterprise” Friday, and is now facing a 113 count indictment from the federal government.
Joyce is reported to have gained $1 million through bribes and kickbacks and has also been charged with racketeering, extortion, honest services fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to defraud the IRS, according to Newsweek.
The 55-year-old Democrat was taken into custody by the FBI after a two-year investigation and was found to have accepted “hundreds of pounds” of Dunkin Doughnuts coffee, after he pulled strings for a local franchise owner, Newsweek reports.
Prosecutors accused Joyce of using his law firm to launder money while he was still working as a state legislator.”
But to make matters even more shocking, this isn’t the first time this month that a Massachusetts Democrat has found themselves embroiled in scandal.
Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg was forced to resign in recent days due to a sexual harassment scandal.
His husband, Bryon Hefner, had been caught being sexually inappropriate with four separate men.
Again reported by The Daily Caller:
“This is the second time this month a Massachusetts Democrat has been embroiled in a massive scandal. Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg resigned last week, amidst reports his husband Bryon Hefner had been sexually inappropriate with four separate men.
Rosenberg said Hefner is seeking treatment for alcohol dependency, and will be admitted to an inpatient treatment center for his addiction.”
It seems Massachusetts is the place to be if you are a corrupt or morally repugnant Democrat.
At least law enforcement will do something when Democrats at the state level are caught breaking the law.
Hillary Clinton put classified information on her unsecured private email server, lied about it, and then was found guilty only to not be charged with a crime.
If former Sen. Brian Joyce had the same connections as Hillary, the outcome of his investigation likely would have been entirely different.
But thankfully justice was clearly served, and it is very unlikely former Sen. Joyce will ever serve in public office again.
Are you happy that a Democrat finally got some justice for his wrongdoings?
