    Leading Democrat Charged By Feds In Bribery Scheme

    Published on

    Red light cameras significantly annoy drivers, but avaricious politicians adore them since they bring in a lot of money, which leads to a serious dispute between the public and their elected officials.

    When a car reaches an intersection when the traffic light is red or when it makes an illegal right turn at a red light, red light infractions have taken place. The $100.00 fine for the infraction.

    Here’s the tale of the ultimate betrayal by individuals who were hired to defend the American people but who were actually abusing their position to steal from them.

    According to Jon Doughtery’s article for Conservative Brief, “A prominent Illinois Democrat is facing a number of allegations including bribery charges in connection with a red-light camera scheme.”

    Fox News reports that state senator Emil Jones, a Democrat from Chicago, has been charged with collecting payments from “Company A,” a local business that made automated devices known as “red-light cameras,” which are used to police traffic regulations.

    Local governments can use the cameras to remotely enforce traffic laws and cite drivers for infractions.

    The source also said:

    In early 2019, Jones introduced Senate Bill 1297, which would require the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to conduct a statewide study of automated traffic law enforcement systems, which included red-light cameras.

    uLater that year, Jones offered to protect one specific red-light camera from the legislation in exchange for a bribe, according to court filings made public Tuesday.

    While the U.S. Attorney’s office has not identified the firm “Company A,” several media outlets, including the Chicago Tribune, identified the company as SafeSpeed LLC, according to a report on Fox News.

    According to Jason Meisner:

    A former employee was “engaged in criminal conduct and recruited outside individuals to help further his self-serving activities,” the corporation claimed in a statement it released on Tuesday.

    Their activities, the business continued,“Their actions were clearly in their own self-interest and done without SafeSpeed’s knowledge and undercut the important work SafeSpeed does.”

    “SafeSpeed developed its company on honesty and morality, and it demands the greatest standards of behavior and ethics from all of its agents and employees. According to Fox News, the corporation added, “SafeSpeed built its business on integrity and ethics, and it holds its employees and representatives to the highest standards of conduct and ethics. SafeSpeed has long since terminated all contact with its former colleague and his associates.”

    “SafeSpeed remains committed to continuing to assist Illinois municipalities in improving traffic safety. SafeSpeed fully supports the federal government’s investigation into public corruption and will continue to aid their efforts in any way it can,” according to the statement.

    Other Democratic leaders and MPs have been detained lately on a variety of allegations, including homicide.

    Robert Telles, the public administrator of Clark County, Nevada, was detained last month“was arrested for the September 3 murder of Jeff German, a journalist with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, who exposed the official’s affair with another woman that worked in his office,” according to The Daily Mail.

    The arrest of Robert Telles, according to Glenn Cook, executive editor of the Review-Journal, “is at once an enormous relief and an outrage for the Review-Journal newsroom.”We are relieved Telles is in custody and outraged that a colleague appears to have been killed for reporting on an elected official. Journalists can’t do the important work our communities require if they are afraid a presentation of facts could lead to violent retribution.”

    A grand jury in El Paso County, Colorado, also accused Democratic state senator Pete Lee last month on a single count of breaking state law by casting his ballot outside of his home district in the 2020 election. Lee serves as the head of the state chamber’s judiciary committee.

    According to the Associated Press:

    The Aug. 3 indictment was first announced Tuesday by the 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office led by Republican District Attorney Michael Allen.

    It alleges Lee, whose formal name is Sanford Edmund Lee, “voted giving false information” about his place of residence during the presidential primary on March 3, 2020, The Colorado Sun reports.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    The AP added if convicted, Lee faces up to three years in prison and a potential fine of as much as $100,000. An initial court hearing on the case was scheduled for Sept. 8 in El Paso County.

    Earlier in August, former U.S. Rep. TJ Cox (D-Calif.) was indicted on 28 felony counts of fraud that include money laundering and wire fraud. CONTINUE READING…
