Democrat Conyers Pleads Guilty to Feds for Taking Bribes.

Posted by iusbvision on June 27, 2009

Monica Conyers is the wife of House member John Conyers, who ironically overseas the committee that is charged with rooting out corruption in Congress. The same congressman who just stopped the House investigation of the ACORN fraud with your tax dollars.

Detroit Free Press:

monica conyers mug shotDetroit City Council President Pro Tem Monica Conyers pleaded guilty this morning to conspiring to commit bribery and is free on personal bond.

U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn said, “The defendant now stands convicted.”

The one count of conspiring to commit bribery is punishable by up to five years in prison.

No sentencing date has been set.

In court, Conyers’ combative demeanor was gone, replaced by soft-spoken resignation as the judge and his staff several times asked her to speak up.

Conyers, the wife of powerful Democratic congressman U.S. Rep. John Conyers, appeared before Cohn to answer charges in connection with the wide-ranging probe of wrongdoing at Detroit city hall.

Read the waiver of indictment.

She has long been under suspicion in the Synagro Technologies bribery probe, not least because she had been a vocal opponent of the contract before suddenly switching her sentiments. She became the deciding voice in the city council’s 5-4 vote to approve the sludge-hauling deal in November 2007.

“This is not the beginning and it is certainly not the end, folks,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Andy Arena said at a news conference this morning.

Fallacy upon fallacy, ignorance upon ignorance…

Corporatism and government corruption is to blame for the economic and political mess, not free market capitalism.

This nine minute video will teach you more about economics than a semester of macro-economics.

Those free-market economists who predicted the economic collapse have been swept under the rug and the rewriting of history has begun.

Newt Gingrich excerpts from a lecture he gave on how we got here, and telling you what we here at IUSB Vision told you when it happened. Corporatism (aka crony capitalism – the merging of finance companies and the government).
