Kilpatricks, Conyers Named In FBI Probe

What with all of the other Democrat scandals coming fast and furious, we almost missed this one from the Detroit Free Press:

 

Kilpatricks, Conyers among 8 named in FBI bribery probe

BY DAVID ASHENFELTER, M.L. ELRICK, JOE SWICKARD and JIM SCHAEFER • FREE PRESS STAFF WRITERS • January 27, 2009

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his father, Bernard Kilpatrick, and City Council President Monica Conyers are the major figures cited in a sludge-hauling executive’s account of greed and bribery in the Synagro scandal, sources confirmed Tuesday to the Free Press. The three have not been charged with wrongdoing in the case…

The Free Press has learned that James Rosendall, the former Synagro Technologies vice president who pleaded guilty to bribery Monday, has been questioned about his contacts with other executives at Houston-based Synagro.

FBI agents recorded one Synagro official on a phone call with Rosendall discussing Rosendall’s efforts to win the $1.2-billion contract in Detroit, one source said, adding that executive has since been suspended by Synagro…

Conyers wouldn’t discuss Rosendall’s plea deal.

"Why don’t you ask the other people?" she told a reporter after a meeting Tuesday

Most experts interviewed Tuesday said Rosendall’s highly detailed 18-page plea agreement sends a clear message that time is running out for anyone who participated in the conspiracy but who so far has refused to cooperate…

Rosendall pleaded guilty Monday to a single count of bribery conspiracy, a deal that will likely require him to spend 11 months in prison and pay a fine up to $250,000.

After the FBI confronted Rosendall with evidence early last year, he cooperated with its investigation by helping agents record conversations and alleged payoffs with city employees and others…

As usual our watchdog media neglects to mention the party affiliation of the ‘suspects.’

And, as usual, they are of course all Democrats.

Regular readers of S&L will certainly recall that this is not Mrs. Conyers first run in with the law by a long shot. (She has even engaged in fisticuffs in barrooms.)

The article even manages to neglect to mention that she is the wife of the rabid America-hater, Representative John Conyers.

And of course Mr. Kilpatrick achievements are quite well known.

    It’s a hoot to watch Monica do her put upon numbers on YouTube. If she gets what she deserves, it would be great, but in these crazy times, I’m not expecting it. Her husband is a loon, but he will no doubt protect her.

    Looking at the picture of his wife, it’s clear why Conyers hates America so much.

    Here’s a great clip on YouTube that shows an 11 year-old girl humiliating her.

    Go to minute 3:15 to see where the kid calls her out.

    Detroit would have been better off if the children were in charge. Oh wait a minute, the children ARE in charge, the dumb ones.

      Good one! (This might explain Barry too.)

      I hope these two have to apologize and pay reparations.

      What I saw in the first part of the video was from the Maury Show. Why is it that blacks think you are disrespecting them if you have a debate or open discussion with them? Case in point….Barry telling the GOP reps that “HE WON” or anytime things don’t go “his” way!! Had I been the president of that city council, I’d have had her attitude forciably removed from chambers. This is only the start of this shananigans.

      Thanks for the clip! Getting spanked for being an ass!

    Is a Synagro a house of worship for Jewish farmers?

    This thug and entitlement” mentality is one, if not the main reason Detroit is the slum and sewer it has become today. A once great American city has become a laughingstock and example of what happens when inmates run the asylum.

    So nowadays It takes a pre-teen girl to expose the hypocracy and immaturity of a woman douchebag who is obviously in over her head in her political position. I’m surprised the words “ho” and “motha-f**ker” weren’t flying around in that city council exchange. These a**holes in Detroit are nothing but a bad cliche.

    The monkeys are in charge of the cage. Before any lefty has the stones to call me a racist for using the word Monkey, just remember that the far-left have been calling GWB a Chimp for the last eight years. My use of the world Monkey was in the same spirit of sarcasm.

    Even Barry Gordy had enough sense to move Motown to the left coast decades ago.
