The Democrats were rocked by a major arrest this week when Massachusetts Senator Thomas Oak was arrested on corruption charges just two months after he was elected.
Oaks is reportedly now facing up to 20 years in prison for honest service wire fraud, a federal charge for corrupt behavior conducted by public officials wherein they favor one party over another for personal gain. These charges stem back from September of 2015, when an undercover FBI agent was introduced to then-State Delegate Oaks.
The agent told Oaks he was interested in obtaining government contracts in Baltimore. One of the contracts he was trying to get was related to a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) project, so Oaks sent multiple letters to the government using official letterhead in support of his friend. In addition, he filed a bond on behalf of the undercover agent to receive $250,000 in taxpayer money. Over the next year, the FBI agent paid Oaks over $15,000 for writing the letters and directing the bonds.
Though the FBI was aware of the corruption for the last two years, the bureau could not do anything while Obama was still in office. The Democrats clearly knew all about his corruption, yet they still support Oaks on his Senate run.
This just reminds us how corrupt the Democratic Party REALLY is!
