Democrat Arrested on Federal Charges of Trying to Sell Her Vote
I always say that if it weren’t for Democrats cheating in elections, there would be no chance that they could win one, and we keep seeing this happen time and time again in the news.
This time, a Democrat from Cincinnati, Ohio was arrested and is facing federal charges for her attempt at cheating an election.
A City Councilwoman is being charged with trying to sell her vote for money last year.
According to Fox19,
Dennard is accused of engaging in and attempting acts of bribery and extortion and trying to exchange her votes for money between August and December 2019.
The criminal complaint alleges she requested $10,000 to $15,000 for personal expenses from an employee at a law firm representing a stakeholder in The Banks development on the Ohio River in downtown Cincinnati.
The “concerned citizen contacted law enforcement following an interaction with Dennard, feeling an ethical and moral obligation to report any criminal wrongdoing,” said U.S. Attorney David M. DeVillers said in a news release.
“The individual then worked at the direction of law enforcement throughout this investigation. It takes courage for citizens to come forward and assist law enforcement as this individual did.”
The federal source gave the FBI text messages and recordings of conversations with the councilwoman between August and December 2019, according to the criminal complaint, written by FBI agent Nathan Holbrook.
In a new release, the Department of Justice said, “Records indicate the same day she received the $5,000 in cash, Dennard booked two seats on a Sept. 22, 2019 flight from Cincinnati to Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport. On Sept. 27, 2019, she booked two return tickets. Financial records indicate Dennard spent more than $4,000 total on the Florida trip to include accommodations at the Opal Sands Resort in Clearwater, Fla. and the airfare.”
Isn’t it odd how this doesn’t happen with Republicans? You only ever see this with Democrats.
