    FBI investigating Dem who allegedly paid opponent to drop out

    A Democratic lawmaker is reportedly under investigation for false statements, conspiracy and campaign fraud.

    Rep. Robert Brady’s (D-Pa.) campaign allegedly paid $90,000 to his 2012 primary rival in exchange for his dropping out of the race, the Daily Beast reported Tuesday, citing an FBI affidavit.

    Brady has not been charged with a crime.

    A search warrant in the case was unsealed Monday in a Pennsylvania federal court. In the warrant, an FBI agent sought access to Brady’s personal email account, stating it may contain evidence of a conspiracy to cover up the payoff scheme.

    The document, which Seamus Hughes, a former government intel policy officer, posted on Twitter, lists Brady’s rival Jimmie Moore, Brady and three others as potentially being involved with the crimes....

    In his defense, he wasn't as powerful as Hillary Clinton, so he couldn't just rig the election in his favor, so he had to pay his rival off. Then again, Bernie Sanders probably got paid off for his endorsement.

    That's a new way to win...holy cow! why can't democruds get voted in the old fashion way? by giving the people something to vote for.
    If they continue to follow the left wing media and only represent gays, trannys, immigrants, illegal immigrants, and felons they will continue to have to cheat to win...plain and simple.

    90K to drop out? That's fucking peanuts (and also potentially illegal depending upon where the cash came from). Shit, I'd have paid Sanders that in a heartbeat.

    Well, he did end up becoming a Judge. Something tells me he had some help getting that position.
