Austin-American Statesman reported: According to the filing, Dukes paid an online psychic $51,348 from December 2014 to January 2016, totaling nearly $1,000 per week. In other “extraneous acts” listed in the filing, prosecutors say Dukes:
• Was absent for roll call 65 percent of the time during the 2017 legislative regular session, and 36 percent of the time in the special session.
• Responded to a search warrant for her cellphone by providing investigators a phone that did not match the identification number on the phone they had requested
• Was noticeably impaired while trying to perform legislative duties at the Capitol and showed up late to a House Appropriations Committee hearing on March 29, stating, “I know I’m talking a lot. I’m full of morphine and will be headed out of here soon.”
What is this now the Second top Democrat politician now facing corruption charges, just a couple weeks after US Senator Menendez faces charges for the exact same crime. It's really looking like Democrat Reps and Senators just can't keep their nose clean, and it's likely more Democrats in Washington and across the country could be involved in felony corruption...Since two are now facing criminal convictions for corruption charges.
Basically what we can all get from this is that Democrats basically use their position in American politics to either enrich themselves or their companies, like Maxine Waters lining the pockets of family members and Hillary Clinton using her position to enrich her pockets and her foundation. Corruption charges and indictments on State reps and Washington politicians may just be the way we can clean up the swamp, because Democrat leadership in America keeps having to show up to court for felony corruption.
