More scandals from those people who think they are so special and everyone else is not smart like them!
A liberal senator who attacked Jeff Sessions during his U.S. attorney general confirmation hearings is caught in a Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation (NWCDC) scandal involving allegations of massive kickbacks
Accoording to Politico, Donald Bernard Sr., pled guilty in federal court to accepting nearly $1 million in bribes from contractors.He was the senior projects manager at the company that ran Newark’s water infrastructure under the direction of then-mayor of Newark, New Jersey Cory Booker.
Earlier this week, Former contractor Giacomo “Jack” DeRosa pleaded guilty to money laundering charges over kickbacks paid to Bernard.Also Linda Watkins, Donald Bernard Sr.’s former boss at the Newark companyBrashear, in December pleaded guilty to similar corruption and kickback charges.
In 2008, when Booker came into the office, the NWCDC was running Newark’s entire water delivery equipment, from the reservoirs to the purification plants.
Trustees are now suing Cory Booker in bankruptcy court.In 2013 , they were determined by a judge to “wind down” the NWCDC and return water operations to the city.They maintain Booker’s failure to monitor the agency caused the extreme corruption which robbed the fiscally struggling city of its few resources and placed its antiquated water infrastructure at significant risk.
Too bad! This country has to deal with people like them! Can’t wait for our new President , if possible,to start firing as many of these people as he can, and replacing them with competentent individuals!
If you live in a glass house, you really shouldn’t throw stones!There’s too much corruption out there! Our new President Donald Trump has a big job ahead of him.
