Another Democrat is embroiled in a case of corruption. Current Virginia Secretary of Commerce Maurice Jones broke federal anti-lobbying laws with an e-mail sent in 2013, when he was deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Washington Post,
Edda Emmanuelli Perez, a lawyer with the U.S. Government Accountability Office, testified before a U.S. House subcommittee about an e-mail sent in Jones’s name when he was at HUD.
The GAO found that Jones violated a “bright-line rule” by making a “clear agency appeal to the public to contact members of Congress in support of or in opposition to pending legislation,” according to a copy of Perez’s testimony posted on the GAO’s Web site.
Questions about Jones’s e-mail arose in February 2014 when the General Assembly was on the verge of confirming Jones’s appointment as commerce secretary in the administration of Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D)…
The revelation threatened to derail his nomination, but HUD Inspector General David A. Montoya assured legislators that he believed Jones did not knowingly break any federal laws.
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN says
TENSOR. Be nice and educate use with your rethoric, please. Perhaps, this Website is smearing lies about the the DEM corruption. WA knows that the DEM are not corrupted people so why don’t you tells us the truth that the REP in WA are the corrupted and trying to deflect their corruption to the poor innocent majesties the DEM. How dare the REP do that to these DEM saints.
Psst, how long has this state been single party run? Everywhere it has happened, every time, there is corruption. Looked at Oregon lately? Democrat governors for 30 years. Now we find out that the current one starting his 4th term is corrupt and has been.. how did that happen? Washington is essentially the same. A major metro area, bludgeons the rest of the state. Funny business with elections of the last governor here in WA? No say it isn’t so.. Of course much of the media is carrying the water for the left, just like at the federal level.
