The FBI is Investigating Top Ranking Democrat for Allegedly Paying Off his Political Opponent

Democratic bribery appears to be the only way for them to be voted into office, or remain in office, and the evidence just keeps on coming.

Sexual misconduct allegations aren’t the only allegations currently plaguing the Democratic Party as News of yet another FBI investigation comes to light. Ranking democrat for the House administration committee, Robert Brady, is now part of an FBI investigation into the allegations that Brady managed to win his 2012 reelection after paying his political opponent $90,000 to drop out. Apparently democrats hold true to the core value that money can buy you anything.

Via IJR:

Rep. Robert Brady (D-PA), who is the ranking Democrat on the House Administration Committee, is in hot water.

Brady, whose duties include oversight of elections and authorizing budget expenses for the House, is being investigated by the FBI.

According to a report from CBS News, Brady paid off his 2012 opponent, Philadelphia Judge Jimmie Moore. The sum was $90,000, and Moore will admit to concealing the money.

As reported by CBS News:

Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, is suspected of wrongdoing in the FBI’s investigation into payments his campaign allegedly made to his opponent in 2012 to encourage him to drop out of the race, according to an approved search warrant application filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Two political consultants have already been charged in the campaign finance probe involving Brady’s reelection campaign, but the recently unsealed search warrant application appears to be the first time Brady himself is mentioned as suspected of criminal wrongdoing in the probe. Federal prosecutors last month said Kenneth Smukler and Donald Jones planned a scheme for the Brady campaign to make an illicit $90,0000 campaign donation to Jimmie Moore, intended to pay down campaign debt.

Now, FBI special agent Jonathan Szeliga says in the search warrant application obtained by CBS News he has “probable cause to believe that Kenneth Smukler, Robert Brady, Donald ”D.A.“ Jones, Jimmie Moore, and Carolyn Cavaness and others known and unknown have committed violations,” involving conspiracy, false statements, and causing false campaign contribution reports, and violations related to limits on campaign contributions and expenditures. The search warrant is for all AOL accounts associated with Brady’s email account, “[email protected],” and Brady’s email is listed as the target. The search warrant application is signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Carol Sandra Moore Wells.
