The sad truth is that members of the CBC have gotten PAID on racism, and I mean handsomely. Yet they have done little to nothing for the communities they serve. In fact, most black communities are far worse than they were, before they were gerrymandered, all but guaranteeing that a black Democrat would represent black people…over the cliff!
Though non-representation of their constituents is bad, it is not a crime. However, the CBC does commit crimes.
The stench of a self-serving conspiracy didn’t stop Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) and nineteen other CBC members backed by caucus chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-California) from introducing a resolution to decrease the openness in which the office works. Quite the contrary, as this group within the CBC wants to inhibit the instigation of an investigation, scale back the powers of the Office of Congressional Ethics—an independent group of private citizens.
Why would the idea of impropriety dissuade the CBC? After all, if DC will re-elect crack head Marion Barry, why not try to shut down the OCE?
Let’s recap a few scandals:
William Jefferson who literally had his money on ice, when the FBI discovered that he had hidden $90K in bribery money in his freezer! I know black people: He was SET UP, and by white men keeping a brotha down!
Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) is currently embroiled in a pay-for-play scandal, where it is alleged that he tried to buy the vacated Senate seat for $1.5M. Chump change for a guy who owns the Anheuser-Busch distributorship for Chicago! Little Jackson barely had enough money to move from DC to Chicago, when he “lucked into” the Congressional seat vacated by Mel Reynolds. Only a fool would not believe that Jackson didn’t try to buy this seat. That is Chicago Politics 101!
Then there is Charlie Rangel,(D-NY) Slum Lord Millionaire, who was digitally captured, mouth agape as he sunned his rotund belly under the warmth of Caribbean sun, the only thing missing was a pina colada in Rangel’s kung fu grip. Rangel’s jaunt to the azure seas was sponsored by corporations, and discovered, ironically by the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Back in 2009 Politico reported that amongst some members of the CBC,
some have argued that race plays a role in the ongoing efforts to remove Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) from his chairmanship of that committee.
No, Rangel’s own actions are the reason efforts were made to remove him!
You’d think in light of all the scandals by the Congressional Black Caucus, they would demand the transparency that Obama campaigned on. Ironically, the reason the CBC wants to scale back these powers is they find
…the transparency of the office is damaging to persons eventually cleared of ethics violations.
Since when is being cleared of ethics violations considered damaging?
If an investigation proves fruitless, all that says to an honest person is that the Office of Congressional Ethics is a bit overzealous. If an overzealous entity clears you, doesn’t that make you look better?
Not if you’re GUILTY! Like Barrack “Transparency” Obama, these CBC night-crawlers avoid the light of day like vampires, and for good reason. They are crooks!
What else doesn’t the Congressional Black Caucus want the Office of Congressional Ethics to find? Eight of the investigations launched by the Office of Congressional Ethics were against black caucus members. Is Ms. Fudge concerned that, out of a body of 42 folks, more investigations loom? Hard to imagine, since currently one in five Congressional Black Caucus members has been targeted by the Office of Congressional Ethics.
It’s time America began electing blacks with ethics, and stop electing black Democrat crooks who demand “licenses to steal” and “get out of jail free” cards.
That’s my rant!
