We have begged for years for the corruption in Washington to be addressed and dealt with and it appears that we will start seeing more justice as General Sessions breaks his foot off in the rears of those that he finds to be acting in any corrupt manners.
Senator Nathaniel Thomas Oaks from Baltimore, Maryland, was arrested on charges of corruption.
He faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted for honest service wire fraud. (via Department of Justice) Honest service fraud is a federal charge for corrupt behavior conducted by public officials, wherein they favor one party over another for personal gain. Senator Oaks was only two months into his first term as senator, and the charges stemming from his alleged corruption began in September 2015. In September 2015, an undercover FBI agent was introduced to then-State Delegate Oaks.
The FBI agent was posing as a businessman from out-of-town. The business the undercover agent claimed to work for was a real business, and had an agreement with the FBI. The agent expressed to Oaks his interest in obtaining government contracts in Baltimore.
The first meeting occurred between Oaks, the undercover agent, and a cooperating individual. The conversation was recorded, as were all future conversations between Oaks and the undercover investigator. One contract the undercover agent attempted to secure was related to a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) project. Oaks sent multiple letters to the government using official letterhead in support of his friend. Oaks also filed a bond on behalf of the undercover agent to receive $250,000 in taxpayer money. This money would otherwise fund the HUD project. Over the course of the year-long investigation, the FBI agent paid Oaks over $15,000 for writing the letters and directing the bonds.
While the FBI knew about the corruption for over two years, they were unable to act until Obama left office. Delegate Oaks’ corruption must have been known to Democrats. Still, they supported his rise to Senator in 2017. Despicable.
