Crime, poverty, despair, and corruption. Massive corruption. massive bribes. But usually, they just hurt their constituents and not necessarily national security. But now apparently the democrats are stepping up their corruption game.
The money can be good living in a cesspool, as long as you can tolerate the stench. But for Seth Williams, two-term Philly DA who was just indicted on 11 counts of wire fraud, 10 counts of bribery, and two counts of extortion, he sold his soul cheap.
According to Vice News,
“Prosecutors say Williams helped a phone card salesman identified as Mohammed N. Ali by arranging for him to avoid secondary customs screenings at Philadelphia International Airport and by attempting to intervene in the criminal prosecutions of at least two of Ali’s man’s friends.
For these alleged efforts, prosecutors say, Williams received:
$205 Louis Vuitton tie
A trip with to an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic with first class airfare worth about $4,805
A custom-made $3,212 sofa
A $502 dinner
A $7,000 check
$2,000 in cash
Burberry watch and purse
Meals and other valuable items
According to text messages during the investigation, Ali allegedly gave Williams the trip in exchange for helping a friend of Ali’s avoid a jail sentence.
“In the future always give me at least a week to help a friend… I have no problem looking into anything,” Williams allegedly wrote in a text message. “I can’t promise I will drastically change anything once it has gotten to the trial stage but I can always look into it.”
“You know I was hesitating to ask!!!” Ali allegedly wrote back. “I know you would help me, but I wasn’t sure if it’s something that can bring suspicion, and this is the last thing I want to do to a friend like you Seth! I care about you, I want to see you the next mayor and the next governor and maybe the next president :)”
Prosecutors alleged Williams earned the $7,000 for helping Ali with airport customs. No word on what Mohammed N. Ali was trying to conceal from customs… this is unbelievable
“Give me the information of the Homeland Security folks that were running the investigation so I can send a letter,” Williams allegedly wrote in a subsequent text. “I want there to be a letter in your file from the D.A. of Philadelphia.”
