This woman has been beyond corrupt
She is down right CRIMMINAL
Misappropriation of funds would be NOTHING
Texas – Dallas – Eddie Johnson, a nine-term Democrat -”a veteran Texas lawmaker has illegally awarded thousands of dollars in college scholarships to relatives and the children of a top aide even though anti-nepotism rules expressly forbid it.”
She has not even apologized. She had the nerve to run for office again?
Are these people stupid?
Seriously. She just stole money from the tax payers and they have the nerve to RE -elect her? This is audacious. How dare she?
I live in Texas.
If I lived there I would be moving very quickly.
This really makes NO sense. It’s a slap in the face of Justice.
Then, there is the LEGAL VOTER FRAUD passed by policy- and although it says NY in the title, there are Texas cities that PRACTICE the SAME voter fraud legally:
New York – Voter Fraud – Whites and Blacks are now 1/6th of a person – on the instructions of a federal judge and the U.S. Department of Justice as part of a new election system crafted to help boost Hispanic representation.
I guarantee that this scholarship scandal is chump change to her and this is why she has not backed down. I bet that this is only the very surface of what lies in her murky depths.
She should be brought up on charges of LARCENY. If I had stolen that much money, I would be in jail. What makes HER above the law? Just because she is a “government official?” Places like cuba and Russia had these types. Do we want this to go unchecked?
Rep. Johnson Wins Re-election:
Updated 9:15 AM CDT, Wed, Nov 3, 2010
Nine-term Democratic Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson was re-elected to the 30th Congressional District, despite a scholarship scandal that had threatened to unseat her.
Johnson, who’d kept a low profile recently, arrived in good spirits to greet a crowd of supporters at the American Airlines Center on Election Night. She made no mention of her GOP opponent Stephen Broden, or of that scholarship scandal in which gave Congressional Black Caucus scholarships — intended for qualified students in her district — to ineligible relatives and friends.
Broden said he was proud to have offered voters some alternatives “to what has been the pattern.”
“I think she’s probably run a race that has been very successful for her, ” Broden said of Johnson. “She understands the district, she’s been there for 18 years, she knows how to rally her troops.”
Broden experienced controversy of his own in the days leading up to Election Day, after he made statements about violent revolution during an interview. On Election Night, after it was clear Johnson woud win, Broden resisted discussion of whether his comments turned some voters away.
“To what extent it did, I can’t measure that,” Broden said.
