Florida Senate Democratic leader quits after admitting affair with lobbyist
SunSentinel ^ | 10/27/17 | SunSentinel
Posted on 11/1/2017, 3:07:02 PM by Brilliant

The incoming leader of the Senate Democrats resigned Friday after revealing he had an affair with a lobbyist during the 2017 session.

The affair between Sen. Jeff Clemens, a Lake Worth political consultant, and former Martin County lobbyist Devon West, was first reported by Politico Florida.

West was hired by Broward County in July as a lobbyist and legislative coordinator.

"I have made mistakes I ashamed of, and for the past six months I have been focused on becoming a better person,’’ Clemens said in a statement... I apologize again to my wife, my family and anyone and everyone that I have treated poorly in the past for putting you through this in such a public way.’’

Clemens, 47, acknowledged the affair Thursday...

According to the Politico report, which relied on unnamed sources, “West came into possession of Clemens’ Apple laptop, and gained access to all his contacts and personal information and then informed his wife of the tryst.”

Efforts to reach West were unsuccessful.

Jury Informs Judge They Are Deadlocked in Public Corruption Trial of Sen. Robert Menendez
by MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY
13 Nov 2017

The jury deliberating the public corruption trial of Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Dr. Salomon Melgen in a New Jersey federal court told Judge William Walls on Monday they are deadlocked.
The Associated Press reported the jury “told the judge it couldn’t reach a verdict on Monday on any of the 18 counts against them, prompting the judge to order it to return on Tuesday to continue deliberating.”

Judge Walls dismissed one of the twelve jurors deliberating on the public corruption trial of Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) on Thursday at the request of the juror. The dismissed juror, 61-year-old Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, was replaced by an alternate juror, and the jury restarted deliberations from the beginning on Monday.

It took just a few hours of deliberations on Monday – with the alternate juror joining the other eleven members – for the full jury to send their message of deadlock to the judge

It was an unusual turn of events in a trial that has been characterized by a number of twists and turns.

When the trial began ten weeks ago, Arroyo-Maultsby told Judge Walls that she had a previously scheduled vacation that she would not be able to cancel. The trial was expected to last six to eight weeks at the time, and Judge Walls promised that she would be able to take her vacation. When she requested to be dismissed from the jury due to the upcoming vacation, Judge Walls honored that request.

After her dismissal, Arroyo-Maultsby took the unusual step of speaking to the media about the details of the jury’s deliberations.

“They are just trying to throw a good man under the bus,” she told NJ.com in an interview at her residence.

“Arroyo-Maultsby, a Democrat, expressed support for Menendez, saying that she’s pretty sure she voted for him previously and “absolutely” would vote for him after this trial, NJ.com reported, adding:

She said there was also deep division on the charge that Menendez made a false statement on his Senate disclosure forms. The dismissed juror said she was the only one who thought he was not guilty of this offense initially.

At one point, she allowed the others to convince her he was guilty, but cried about it overnight, feeling like she had been wrongly swayed. On Thursday, she returned to the deliberations intending to vote not guilty on the charge, and believes she may have convinced others.

“I would’ve never slept” if she had not changed her vote, Arroyo-Maultsby said.

While it is highly unusual for a dismissed juror to comment publicly about the deliberations conducted by a jury prior to their dismissal, it is apparently not illegal to do so.

“Often judges will discourage it, but they cannot bar jurors from discussing the deliberations with reporters,” former federal prosecutor Robert Mintz told NJ.com

“When a juror is dismissed during a trial, the court will generally strongly urge them not to discuss the case, at least until a verdict is reached, since it may undermine the public’s confidence in the ultimate verdict. But these discussions do not necessarily create an appellate issue, since these comments to the media should not impact the deliberations of the remaining jurors,” Mintz added.

The trial of Menendez and Melgen began on September 6, as Breitbart News reported:

Co-defendant Melgen, a Florida opthalmologist, was convicted on 67 felony counts of Medicare fraud in April for engaging in the same fraudulent billing practices which Menendez personally lobbied then-Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius to pressure her department’s adjudicatory branch to authorize for Melgen in a 2012 meeting held on Capitol Hill.

Melgen was convicted for instances of fraudulent billing that occurred between 2008 and 2013.

Menendez lobbied Sebelius to allow Melgen to keep $8 million in money he had been paid by Medicare for bills he submitted between 2005 and 2008 for the same fraudulent billing practices. Sebelius refused to intervene in the adjudicatory process in that matter, and Melgen was required to pay back the $8 million he had received in overbilling for the earlier period.

In return for these and other favors, the federal government alleges, Melgen made over $750,000 in campaign donations to PACs and other campaign entities that were earmarked for Menendez’s 2012 re-election campaign, which he easily won. In addition, Melgen paid for an estimated $58,000 in air travel for Menendez from New Jersey and Washington, D.C. to the Dominican Republic and Florida. When these trip payments were discovered some time later, Menendez reimbursed Melgen.

Banker husband of ex-DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is accused of trying to dupe 70-year-old
Daily Mail ^ | 30 November 2017 | Jose Lambiet
Posted on 11/30/2017, 10:19:46 PM by rdl6989

The husband of former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is being accused of trying to rip off an elderly commercial property owner and threatening him in the process, according to a lawsuit recently filed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Banker Steve Schultz, husband of the scandal-prone U.S. Congresswoman for 26 years, allegedly tried to have 70-year-old investor Frank DiMaria hand over the deed of his troubled $4 million-commercial property in Pompano Beach, Florida, to Schultz personally, according to the complaint obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.

Conyers Retires, Family Feud Ensues
www.thedailybeast.com ^ | 12.05.17 10:36 AM ET | Gideon Resnick Gideon Resnick
Posted on 12/5/2017, 12:26:54 PM by Red Badger

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), the longest serving member of the House of Representatives and the subject of a flurry of sexual-misconduct allegations in the last few weeks, said he was "retiring today" during a radio interview Tuesday.

"I'm in the process of putting my retirement plans together and I'll have more of that very soon," Conyers said in an interview with the station, Praise 102.7.

No sooner had he announced plans to vacate his seat, however, than an intra-family feud erupted into public view over who would take it over.

The embattled Michigan Democrat said on Tuesday that he wanted his son, John Conyers III, to replace him when he departs. But earlier in the morning, Conyers' nephew, Ian Conyers, said that he would be seeking the seat.

“I’m absolutely going to file for his seat, Ian Conyers, a state senator, told the New York Times. "The work of our congressional district, where I come out of, has to continue."

The confusion over Conyer's replacement reflected the frantic final chapter of the congressman's storied-turned-controversial career.

The House Ethics Committee announced last week that it had opened an investigation into allegations against Conyers following a BuzzFeed News story revealing that the Democrat from Michigan had settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 after a staffer allegedly that he had sexually harassed her.

Another woman, Melanie Sloan, who served as the former executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), told The Washington Post that she experienced inappropriate behavior from the congressman that stopped short of sexual harassment. In one instance, Sloan said, Conyers summoned her to his office, where he was in his underwear.

And on Tuesday, yet another woman came forward with a story of his inappropriate behavior to The Detroit News — the third allegation against Conyers to be made public in the last two weeks. The woman, Deanna Maher, worked for Conyers from 1997 to 2005 and detailed three instances of his advances and misconduct in the late 1990s.

While Democrats struggled with how to handle the damage control, pressure mounted behind the scenes. Eventually, Democratic House leadership all called for Conyers to leave office immediately.

“The allegations against Conyers, we have learned more since Sunday, are serious, disappointing and very credible,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said last week. “Congressman Conyers should resign.”

Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), who had been dismissive of questions about Conyers’ conduct, echoed the sentiment. The third-ranking Democrat in the House also told reporters that it would be in the “best interest” of Conyers and his colleagues for him to step down.

Through it all, Conyers’ attorney remained defiant that the elder statesman would not resign, compelling House Democratic aides to float the idea of removing Conyers entirely from the House Judiciary Committee if he remained in office.

Conyers is heralded as a civil rights hero, having introduced the first bill in Congress that honored Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday after his assassination in 1968. He has long been a proponent of a single-payer health care system, reintroducing the United States National Health Care Act each session since 2003. He has served in Congress since 1964 and co-founded the Congressional Black Caucus in 1969.

On Tuesday, he defended his legacy , saying it "can't be compromised or diminished in any way by what we're going through now."

He added, "This too shall pass."

PCSO arrests Davenport mayor, says she was using dead people’s handicapped placards
The Ledger ^ | 12/6/2017 | Suzie Schottelkotte
Posted on 12/7/2017, 1:27:48 PM

BARTOW — Davenport Mayor Darlene Bradley was arrested Tuesday on allegations she used dead people’s handicapped placards to park in designated spaces at City Hall.

Bradley, 60, faces felony charges of using a deceased person’s identification and possessing an altered or counterfeit decal on a handicapped placard, both of which carry a prison term up to five years if she’s convicted. She also was arrested for unlawful use of a handicapped placard, which is a misdemeanor.

“The governor has the right to suspend her until she is acquitted,” he said, “but that request will have to come from the commission. That’s something they will discuss.” Bradley couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday.

Based on a tip, Polk County sheriff’s deputies obtained surveillance video of Bradley parking in a handicapped space at Davenport City Hall on Monday night. She was seen lifting an oversized, wheeled briefcase from the trunk of her car and walking inside to attend a City Commission meeting, according to the arrest affidavit.

During a subsequent search warrant at her home, deputies found a handicapped placard issued to Evelyn Klinger Letterman, who died in August 2012, the affidavit states. The placard expired in October 2013, but had been altered to reflect a 2018 expiration date, records show.

The other placard had been issued to someone who died in 2015, though that person isn’t named in the affidavit.

Bradley, who was arrested under her legal first name of Teresa, was taken into custody when deputies served the search warrant, according to Sheriff’s officials. She was booked into the Polk County Jail on Tuesday and later released after posting $2,250 bail.

Callihan said residents had been calling City Hall on Wednesday asking about the arrest. Commissioner Tom Fellows said he anticipates the incident will have a significant impact on the community.

“I can’t imagine this happening,” he said. “I’m just really surprised that anybody would do that.”

He said he’s uncertain what will happen at the commission’s special meeting.

“The best thing to do is to wait and see, when all the facts are in, and go from there,” he said.

Bradley marks the second commissioner in an East Polk city to be arrested this year. Lake Wales Commissioner Curtis Gibson, who took office in April, was charged in July with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a third-degree felony, on allegations he held a knife to his girlfriend’s throat. He has pleaded not guilty and his charges are still pending in Circuit Court.

Commissioners in Lake Wales voted 3-1 not to seek Gibson’s suspension from office.

After 24 Years In Congress, Corrine Brown Starts New Life In Prison
THOMAS PHIPPEN
Reporter
01/29/2018

Former Florida Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown reported to federal prison Monday to start her five year sentence for multiple crimes, including tax fraud and corruption.

Brown, 71, turned herself in to the Sumter Correctional Institution in Florida, one of the largest federal prisons in the country, which houses both violent and non-violent offenders. Brown will be serving her five-year sentence at a minimum-security satellite facility, which keeps roughly 391 other female inmates.

Brown was ordered to report before noon Monday, and a black a black bus with tinted windows arrived at the prison yard and Brown stepped out, the Florida Times-Union reports.

She was in the bus with some family members, and asked Bishop Kelvin Cobaris, a pastor from the Orlando area, to pray for her. When a reporter asked if Brown was afraid, Cobaris said, “The congresswoman is a very strong woman. I didn’t see fear. I saw nervousness.”

Brown was sentenced in December to five years in prison, plus three years supervised release. She could potentially apply for early release after 12 months.

She was found guilty of 18 out of 22 counts of corruption and tax-related fraud in May 2016. Brown and associates transferred more than $800,000 from One Door for Education, a charity she ran, into personal bank accounts between 2012 and 2016. Ronnie Simmons, Brown’s former chief of staff, and the charity’s president, Carla Wiley, both testified against their former boss.

Brown represented Florida’s Fifth Congressional district for 24 years before she was defeated in the 2016 election.

The prison will likely give Brown clerical or janitorial work at the prison, said Larry Levine, whose Wall Street Prison Consultants business helps recently incarcerated inmates adjust to life behind bars. “I was locked up with politicians — they have entitlement issues, they think they’re entitled to things and people resent that,” Levine told the Orlando Sentinel. “They’re going to think she’s rich — she can claim she doesn’t have any money.”

SHOCK: DOJ Files Motion to Dismiss Indictment of Sen. Robert Menendez for Public Corruption

by MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY
31 Jan 2018
The Justice Department is dropping its public corruption case against  Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ).

“In a shocking turnaround, the U.S. Justice Department has dropped its case against Sen. Robert Menendez,” NJ.com reported.

“In a court hearing today, federal prosecutors moved to dismiss the corruption indictment against the New Jersey Democrat,” NJ.com added.

As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, “The federal district judge who presided over the public corruption case against Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) that ended in a mistrial in November, acquitted Menendez and his co-defendant, Dr. Salomon Melgen, on seven of 18 public corruption counts in a decision released on Wednesday.”

“Given the impact of the court’s Jan. 24 order on the charges and the evidence admissible in a retrial, the United States has determined that it will not retry the defendants on the remaining charges,” a Department of Justice spokesperson said in a statement issued Wednesday morning.

The Justice Department decision is a huge victory for Sen. Menendez, who is up for re-election in November.

First indicted in April 2015, Menendez has seen his net approval ratings plummet 20 points in the past year, from +4 in the first quarter of 2017 to -16 in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Melgen’s first trial and public corruption charges began in September, and ended in November with a mistrial.

Earlier in January “the Department of Justice announced its intent to re-try the case against both Menendez and Melgen, who was convicted on 67 felony counts of Medicare fraud in April.”

Obama Aide Was Busted For Taking Upskirt Photos Of Women Around DC
Daily Caller ^ | February 13, 2018 | by Derek Hunter
Posted on 2/13/2018, 2:23:01 PM by b4its2late

An official in Barack Obama’s White House resigned in 2016 because he was arrested for taking pictures up women’s skirts on DC Metrorail cars, according to the Daily Mail.

The official, William Mendoza, was the executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education until he resigned in November 2016. Mendoza was convicted after pleading guilty in January 2017 to attempted voyeurism, a misdemeanor.

According to the Daily Mail, he used his government-issued iPhone — during work hours — to take the photos and resigned as the Department of Education was readying an investigation into his behavior.

He also allegedly viewed a video on his phone of a woman undressing in a changing room in a clothing store.

Mendoza, 42, described by the paper as married and a father, was earning $140,000 in his Executive Branch position. The judge handed down a 90-day suspended sentence and a $100 fine.

Mendoza’s lawyer, Paul Kiyonaga, told the Daily Mail his client received treatment after the arrest and just wants to move on with his life. “He’s received treatment for the underlying issues that gave rise to this incident, and, with the strong support of his family, is moving forward productively with his life,” the lawyer said.

In 2016, a Native American from Oklahoma accused Mendoza of assaulting him because he was wearing a Washington Redskins shirt.

The inspector general for the Department of Education recommended he be barred from any further government employment.

The position of executive director of the White House Initiative on American Indian and Alaska Native Education is a senior position requiring appointment by the president.

Yeah.   Smiley  I don't think either party has a monopoly on misconduct.  It's an individual thing.  That said, if these guys cannot stay out of trouble while they are holding a public office, they need to go.

Jury finds DEMOCRAT Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski guilty on 47 counts
WFMZ TV ^ | 3/2/2018 | Channel 69 News
Posted on 3/2/2018, 8:51:17 AM by Dr. Scarpetta

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A verdict has been reached in the federal corruption trial of Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski and co-defendant Scott Allinson.

A jury has found Pawlowski guilty of 47 counts and not guilty on the remaining seven charges. The mayor sat quietly at the defendant's table periodically putting his head in his hand, which was propped on the table.

Former Allentown City Council President Ray O'Connell was in the gallery when the verdict against Pawlowski was read.

"Justice has finally been served," he said.

O'Connell, who ran in last year's Democratic primary against Pawlowski, said the dark cloud that has been hanging over Allentown since the FBI raid of city hall in July 2015 has finally been lifted.

The mayor was sworn in to his fourth term on Jan. 1.

United States Attorney Louis D. Lappen released a statement after the verdict, saying:

“Today’s guilty verdicts send the message again to corrupt politicians that they are not above the law. The jury has held Mayor Pawlowski accountable for selling his office to the highest bidder to fund his personal ambitions.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has resigned after pleading guilty to theft charges in criminal court.

HIDE CAPTION



NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nashville Mayor Megan Barry has resigned after pleading guilty to theft charges in criminal court.

Barry appeared in court Tuesday morning and pleaded guilty to theft of property over $10,000 -- a Class C Felony. She will pay $11,000 in restitution and serve three years' probation. After that time, she will be able to apply to have it expunged from her record.

Watch Live Coverage

Robert Forrest also entered a plea deal of theft of property over $10,000 and was placed on three years' probation. As a term and condition of his probation, he will be required to pay $45,000 restitution.

Barry held a press conference, where she thanked everyone for their support.

"While my time today as your mayor concludes, my unwavering love and sincere affection for this wonderful city and its great people will never come to an end," she said.

Read Barry's full statement following her resignation.

It follows several days of negotiations between Barry's legal team and District Attorney Glenn Funk. Those negotiations had apparently focused on whether Funk would agree not to prosecute Barry in exchange for her resignation.

The resignation comes less than five weeks after Barry, in an interview with NewsChannel 5 Investigates, first admitted to a two-year affair with her police bodyguard, Sgt. Rob Forrest.

A day later, Funk announced he was requesting the TBI to investigate whether Barry or Forrest had misused taxpayer money during that affair.

Recently, a TBI special agent revealed in a search warrant affidavit that investigators had uncovered nude photos of a woman taken on Forrest's police-issued phone while he was traveling with the mayor and while he was on the clock.

Then, NewsChannel 5 Investigates uncovered security video showing the two making frequent visits in the early morning hours to Nashville's historic City Cemetery.

Full title: SECRET EMPIRES: Joe Biden and John Kerry’s Sons’ Firm Struck Billion-Dollar Deal with the Chinese Government 10 Days After Biden Trip to China

The private equity firm of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden inked a billion-dollar deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after the father and son flew to China in 2013.

The Biden bombshell is one of many revealed in a new investigative book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer. Schweizer’s last book, Clinton Cash, sparked an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Former Maryland Democratic state senator pleads guilty to accepting bribes
Associated Press

A former Maryland state senator pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to two counts of fraud for accepting $15,300 in bribes.

Nathanial Oaks, a 71-year-old Baltimore Democrat, entered guilty pleas to one count of wire fraud and one count of honest services fraud, hours after he resigned from office. He faces up to 20 years in prison on each of the two counts.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Bennett said other charges, including obstruction of justice, would be dismissed under a plea deal with prosecutors. The judge scheduled sentencing for July 17. Oaks pleaded guilty to taking the bribes from an FBI informant posing as a Texas investor looking to obtain contracts in Baltimore.

"Yes," Oaks said, when asked by the judge if he had committed the crimes.

Oaks and his attorneys declined to comment as they entered and left the courthouse.

The case arose from an investigation dating to 2015, when Oaks was a member of the Maryland House of Delegates. In the plea agreement, Oaks admitted he issued two letters on his office letterhead in 2016 that contained false and fraudulent representations to a person he believed to be a U.S. Housing and Urban Development official. The letters were sent to help obtain federal grant funds for the FBI informant, who went by the name Mike Henley. Henley paid Oaks $10,300 for his help.

Henley paid Oaks another $5,000 in exchange for Oaks' agreement to file a bond bill request with the Maryland Department of Legislative Services seeking $250,000 in state funds for a development project.

The money paid to Oaks was supplied by the FBI. Meetings between Oaks and the informant were recorded with audio and video recording equipment.

Court records describe Oaks as being careful not to openly talk about payments. During an April 2016 meeting when the two discussed ways Oaks could help, the lawmaker put a lollipop in his mouth. The source then held up five fingers to signify a $5,000 payment. Oaks then shook his head from side to side and made an upward motion with his thumb to indicate a higher amount, court records say. He also used code words with the informant to set bribe amounts. Court records say the informant and Oaks had settled on "lollipop" as a code word for $1,000, stemming from the time he put the Tootsie Pop in his mouth to halt open discussion of monetary amounts.

Oaks confessed to two FBI agents in January 2017 that he accepted the payments, and he agreed to cooperate with the FBI in an investigation of another person. As part of that investigation, Oaks covertly recorded his phone conversations with the person, but in March he tipped off the target of the probe during a meeting in an Annapolis bar and told him: "What we talked about, just say no." Oaks warned the target again later that month in the hallway of a state government building in the state capital.

Because of the tip off, the investigation into the target and possibly other politicians was no longer viable, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Oaks' indictment last year came amid a flurry of state and federal charges against would-be, former and sitting lawmakers who ended up in legal trouble. Gary Brown, a Democrat, was indicted by state prosecutors early last year on charges of making illegal campaign contributions, one day before he was scheduled to be sworn in as a Baltimore delegate. A day later, federal prosecutors announce a former delegate, William Campos, had pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy in a public corruption case involving the liquor industry in Prince George's County. And the very next day, just before the legislative session started, another Prince George's County Democrat, Del. Michael Vaughn, abruptly announced his resignation. Vaughn was indicted in the same federal case as Campos.

Oaks represented Baltimore in the House from 1983 until early 1989. In 1988, he was convicted of theft and misconduct in office charges for stealing thousands of dollars from his re-election fund. He received a five-year suspended sentence and lost his House seat as a result. But in 1994, Oaks was re-elected to the House, where he served until last year, when he was appointed to replace a senator who retired.

Oaks, whose indictment became public nearly a year ago, remained in office while he faced the charges. He submitted his resignation letter Wednesday night with an effective date of 9 a.m. Thursday. The Senate president removed him from his position on the Senate Finance Committee last month, at the recommendation of a legislative ethics panel.

Supreme Court again refuses to hear Blagojevich appeal
Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court for the second time has refused to hear an appeal by imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich of his corruption convictions.

The justices didn't comment Monday in letting stand the convictions and 14-year prison term the 61-year-old is serving. His scheduled release date is 2024.

Blagojevich's lawyers had wanted the high court to take up his case to make clear what constitutes illegal political fundraising. They argued that politicians are vulnerable to prosecution because the line between what's allowed and what's illegal is blurry.

His convictions included trying to extort a children's hospital for contributions and seeking to trade an appointment to the Senate seat Barack Obama vacated when he was elected president for campaign cash.

The court also refused to hear his 2016 appeal.

Used 5 different addresses and 4 variations of her name?

Rosie O’Donnell’s campaign donations to Dems went over legal limit

Rosie O’Donnell made illegally over-sized campaign donations to at least five Democratic federal candidates, according to a Post analysis of campaign filings.

[...]

Filings show O’Donnell gave a combined $5,400 in contributions over the limit to the five candidates, and used five different New York addresses and four variations of her name.

Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse
Eric Schneiderman has raised his profile as a voice against sexual misconduct. Now, after suing Harvey Weinstein, he faces a #MeToo reckoning of his own.
By Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow

Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, has long been a liberal Democratic champion of women’s rights, and recently he has become an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. As New York State’s highest-ranking law-enforcement officer, Schneiderman, who is sixty-three, has used his authority to take legal action against the disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, and to demand greater compensation for the victims of Weinstein’s alleged sexual crimes. Last month, when the Times and this magazine were awarded a joint Pulitzer Prize for coverage of sexual harassment, Schneiderman issued a congratulatory tweet, praising “the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they had endured at the hands of powerful men.” Without these women, he noted, “there would not be the critical national reckoning under way.”

Now Schneiderman is facing a reckoning of his own. As his prominence as a voice against sexual misconduct has risen, so, too, has the distress of four women with whom he has had romantic relationships or encounters. They accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence. All have been reluctant to speak out, fearing reprisal. But two of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women. They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent. Manning Barish and Selvaratnam categorize the abuse he inflicted on them as “assault.” They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. Selvaratnam says that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and both say that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him. (Schneiderman’s spokesperson said that he “never made any of these threats.”)

A third former romantic partner of Schneiderman’s told Manning Barish and Selvaratnam that he also repeatedly subjected her to nonconsensual physical violence, but she told them that she is too frightened of him to come forward. (The New Yorker has independently vetted the accounts that they gave of her allegations.) A fourth woman, an attorney who has held prominent positions in the New York legal community, says that Schneiderman made an advance toward her; when she rebuffed him, he slapped her across the face with such force that it left a mark that lingered the next day. She recalls screaming in surprise and pain, and beginning to cry, and says that she felt frightened. She has asked to remain unidentified, but shared a photograph of the injury with The New Yorker.

In a statement, Schneiderman said, “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”

NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman Resigns Amid Abuse Allegations
In one instance, the politician reportedly threatened a partner, “if you ever left me, I’d kill you.”

05/07/2018

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) announced his resignation on Monday, just hours after a shocking report in The New Yorker detailed four of his former romantic partners’ accusations of physical abuse.

“It has been my great honor and privilege to serve as Attorney General for the people of the State of New York,” Schneiderman said in a statement late Monday. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time.”

He said he would officially resign at the close of business on Tuesday.

On Monday, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam went on the record to say that Schneiderman, 63, “repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent.” In one instance, Manning Barish said Schneiderman told her that “if you ever left me, I’d kill you.”

Two other women, quoted anonymously, had similarly troubling allegations of abuse.

Shortly after the report came out, Schneiderman tried to downplay the accusations.

“In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” he said in a statement. “I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”

But just hours later, Schneiderman’s allies called on him to step aside, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, both Democrats.

“My personal opinion is that, given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as attorney general,” Cuomo said shortly before Schneiderman’s resignation.

Schneiderman has long championed women’s causes and has been a vocal supporter of the Me Too movement. One of his more notable actions as a state senator involved legislation to protect women from domestic abuse, including his sponsorship of the Anti-Strangulation Act in 2010.

Manning Barish and Selvaratnam each told The New Yorker that Schneiderman had choked and slapped them, and said they’d sought medical help during or shortly after their relationships. At one point, Manning Barish said, Schneiderman told her “I am the law.” She said that once after slapping and choking her, Schneiderman told her that “hitting an officer of the law is a felony.”

As New York’s senior law enforcement official, Schneiderman took large steps to combat President Donald Trump’s agenda, including pushing to change state law so any Trump aides can be tried for criminal acts they’ve committed in New York even if they have been given a presidential pardon. His office also filed a suit against film producer Harvey Weinstein in February, alleging that Weinstein had sexually harassed women for years.

Schneiderman had been running for re-election in 2018 for what would have been his third term.

Ex-congressman says he's 'given up on America' after sentenced for 3rd conviction
Fox News ^ | 10 May 2018 | Dom Calicchio
Posted on 5/11/2018, 7:10:22 AM by Magnatron

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence.

At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work.

He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise.

“It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become," Gettleman said.

Another corrupt career politician.

Ex-speaker of NY Assembly guilty in public corruption case, report says

The longtime New York politician Sheldon Silver was reportedly found guilty Friday after facing charges of public corruption.

The 74-year-old, who will be sentenced in mid-June, said he felt “disappointed at this point” but planned to appeal, The Associated Press reported.

“I am very confident that the judicial process will play out in my favor,” the Democratic former Assembly speaker said as he departed the courthouse.

The jury’s decision was the second time Silver has heard this verdict. He was also found guilty during his first trial in 2015, however that conviction was repealed by an appeals court following the Supreme Court’s decision that adjusted what was legally considered as corruption.

Prosecutors argued that Silver illegally pocketed around $4 million in fees from a cancer researcher and real estate developers who then benefited from his status in the state’s government. He reportedly made another $1 million investing that money.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tatiana Martins argued that there was a “mountain of evidence” against Silver that suggested he made his money by using a form of extortion that stemmed from his political power.

However, Silver’s attorney Michael Feldberg said during closing arguments that the fees were acquired lawfully and were considered “common, standard and accepted” practice among legislators who were permitted to work other jobs.

Silver, who was elected to government in 1976 and maintained his role as speaker for 21 years, did not take the stand in either of his trials.

Didn't hear much about this.  I wonder why?   Roll Eyes

Ethics committee admonishes Sen. Bob Menendez over taking gifts and advocating for donor
Herb Jackson, USA TODAY Network
Published April 26, 2018

WASHINGTON — The Senate's ethics committee "severely admonished" Sen. Bob Menendez Thursday for accepting gifts and advocating for the donor's personal and business interests.

"Your actions reflected discredit upon the Senate," the four-page "public letter of adominition" said.

The letter cited Menendez's use of a private jet owned by Florida eye specialist Salomon Melgen and the senator's intervention with Medicare officials about $8.9 million Melgen was accused of overcharging the government. It also said Menendez pressed customs and State Department officials about matters that affected Melgen's business and personal affairs.

Menendez reimbursed Melgen $58,500 for three of the flights when the scandal first erupted in 2013, but the committee said he needed to pay for all the gifts and trips taken. He was also ordered to update disclosure forms for prior years to show he received the gifts.

Melgen was sentenced to 17 years in prison in February after being convicted at a separate trial of 67 counts including health care fraud, submitting false claims and falsifying patients' records.
