Democrat crook found!

Republicans aren’t the only amoral sticky-fingered greedheads among us. (It just feels like there are more of them.) I fervently believed that, if I was patient, I’d get to write about a thieving Democrat someday. Today’s the day!

Seth Andrew (photo below, bio here), 42, a former Obama administration education adviser, pleaded guilty to embezzling $218,000 from a charter school network he helped start in 2005, ABC News reported here on Friday, January 14, 2022.

He told the judge (presumably after being coached what to say by his lawyer), “I am truly sorry for what I have done. What I did was wrong and I deeply regret my actions. And, as I stand before you today, I have tremendous remorse for the impact it has had on the schools, the alumni and my own family.” (I have this on my own flash cards, in case I ever have to represent an embezzler in criminal court.)

He’s looking at 21 to 27 months in the slammer, according to the terms of the plea deal. Maybe he’ll make some Republican friends while he’s in there.

    Maybe soon you will be able to write about investor of the year 2021. Nancy Pelosi. A 69 percent gain on 50 million in trades and 12.6 million in profit far far better than Warren Buffett. And her son is a Prince though his friends are a den of thieves.

    I don’t have to. New York Post already did it here. The Pelosis are rich, but that isn’t a crime in this country. Members of Congress are allowed to trade stocks. Maybe they shouldn’t be, but that’s how the rules currently stand. Their son hasn’t been accused of any crimes, but according to the Post, has been involved in business activities with what seems like an inordinate number of thieves.
