Surprise, surprise! Another Democrat, who was actually a congressman at one point, has been indicted on a number of serious charges.

TJ Cox, who is a former House Representative of California, was indicted on more than two dozen criminal counts of fraud. Forgive me if I don’t seem overly astonished by this news given that the vast majority of Democrats are dishonest thieves anyway.

According to Politico,

The FBI arrested former one-term Democratic Rep. T.J. Cox on dozens of charges related to financial fraud, according to public records with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office.

The arrest took place around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Fresno, Calif., according to the records. A statement from the Justice Department said the former congressman was charged with “15 counts of wire fraud, 11 counts of money laundering, one count of financial institution fraud, and one count of campaign contribution fraud.”

The federal indictment accuses Cox of using a cluster of business entities to enrich himself while saddling business partners with losses. The document describes a scheme in which Cox siphoned off money into secret accounts and used the proceeds to pay off his own debts, cover personal costs like private school tuition and fund his political ambitions. He allegedly fabricated a board meeting to secure loan funding and lied on a mortgage loan application.

In a statement, DOJ said the California Democrat allegedly participated in “multiple fraud schemes” over a number of years. Between 2013 and 2018, he allegedly obtained “over $1.7 million in diverted client payments and company loans and investments” through off-the-books bank accounts.

If Cox is convicted, he stands to serve some serious prison time as well as some fines that would break anybody’s bank account.

For just the wire fraud and money laundering charges, he could face 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. For the campaign contribution fraud, he could face 5 years and another $250,000. But the big one, which is for wire fraud affecting a financial institution and financial institution fraud, he is facing 30 years and a $1 million fine.

This is where greed gets you in life. Your sin will find you out.

  • Seems politicians in general Democrat or Republican seems to want to pad their own bank accounts through any means at their disposal.

    • That is sometimes very true. Joe Biden, on a Senator’s salary became a multi-millionaire somehow. Donald Trump on the other hand, lost money as president and refused his $400K salary.

  • Democrat going to prison for fraud plus other criminal activity. I’ll believe it when I see it and doubt he will spend any time in prison and surely not anywhere near 55 years.

  • His problem was he didn’t think he had to kick anything up to the big guy! There are plenty of corrupt politicians! That is just a fact. But only the free lancers get charged for going out on their own. Just look at Joe and Hunter Biden! You certainly don’t see the FBI or any law enforcement going after them. They get protection from the courts, the Media, the FBI, CIA, IRS, DOJ! This idiot is just the sacrificial Democrat to say SEE WHAT WE DID???? While protecting the real criminals!

  • The KGB wannabes and the liberal commie Democrats want the public to think Trump is bad? Being a former Congressperson and a crook doesn’t mean much. They make it sound like this is sensational. Want sensationalism. How about the KGB wannabes go after the current crop of crooks, like, Lying Corrupt Quid Pro KING Joe, Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton, who sold out America to the Russians, approving the sale of Uranium one to the Russians and then receiving $145 million dollars from russian Oligarchs for her slush fund, called the Clinton Foundation. How about Pelosi for giving inside info to her husband in order to invest big time in chip manufacturing, now that the government is giving out corporate welfare to an industry that is wealthy in their own right. The chip manufacturers aren’t hurting for the money.

  • Very few democrat politicians are not low-lifes nowadays. Congressmen like Adam Schiff will lie as easily as you breathe, and not feel at all guilty about it. Recall how he waved a sheaf of papers that he claimed proved Trump’s guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt? These Dems are scummy people who care only about themselves.

  • So – why only ONE???? What about Mr Piglosi, how about Hunter Buyden or Joey for that matter, take Maxie for threatening people – – – – and the list goes on to infinity!!!!

  • Dem Politicasl Communist Dirt are ALL CRIM*NLAS
    Just takes longer to Catch & Convict them all

    Keep it up & May they ALL ROT in Prison with BUBBA or MRS BUBBA

  • He won’t be going anywhere., unless the dems want to use him as their patsy for all of their other crimes.
