    BREAKING: Big Dem Indicted On Federal Charges — Facing 20 Years In Prison

    Published on

    When it comes to crime, Democrats appear to struggle. I mean committing crimes. Perhaps it is why they advocate for district attorneys who are lenient toward criminal activity.

    A BLM member and her husband were charged in March for receiving roughly $33,426 in unemployment benefits and using an undefined sum of donations money for their personal gain.

    In April, Brian Benjamin, who was the lieutenant governor of New York at the time, turned himself in to the police in relation to an earlier campaign.

    After the FBI and Manhattan prosecutors looked into whether Benjamin knew he was engaging in campaign finance crime, Benjamin was taken into custody. On April 12, Benjamin gave notice of his resignation.

    In connection with a plan to legalize slot machines, former Illinois state representative Luis Arroyo offered a member of the Illinois Senate monthly payments in exchange for his support. He was found guilty of bribery and received a 5-year jail sentence in June.

    A former Democratic state senator and party chairman is charged with wire fraud for allegedly utilizing campaign funds for gambling-related expenses.

    Former state senator Karen Peterson, who represented the 5th Congressional District for more than ten years, gave up her seat in the Senate in April. She mentioned “gambling addictions” and mental health problems.

    She held the position of chair of the Louisiana Democratic Party from 2012 to 2020.

    The Black Lives Matter PAC contributed more than $100,000 to her campaign for Louisiana’s 2nd Congressional District.

    The Eastern District of Louisiana’s U.S. Attorney claims that Peterson has been cheating campaign donors for at least seven years.

    In a court document, U.S. Attorney Michael Simpson claimed “As a Louisiana State Senator, Peterson formed and maintained a campaign organization, the Karen Carter Peterson Campaign Fund (KCPCF), to solicit and raise campaign funds from individual and corporate donors. The campaign funds were solicited based upon the representations and premise that the funds would be used to facilitate Peterson’s reelection for the position of State Senator.”

    She is also accused of stealing funds that were given to the Louisiana Democratic Party and intended to help candidate campaigns.

    Investigators claim that the Democrat used illegally obtained funds for personal, non-campaign-related needs, including gambling. When she solicited for additional donations, according to a U.S. attorney, she allegedly disguised the fact that she had previously utilized money for personal purposes, making the violation even more serious.

    Peterson faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in jail, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervision following her release. On August 1, the court will once again hear the Peterson case.

    According to a press release issued by the IRS:

    According to court documents, Peterson served as a Louisiana state senator for the 5th District from about 2010 until about April 8, 2022, and as the chair of State Political Party A between about 2012 and 2020. As a Louisiana state senator, Peterson formed and maintained a campaign organization, the “Karen Carter Peterson Campaign Fund (“KCPCF”),” to solicit and raise campaign funds from individual and corporate donors.
