There’s a considerable measure of power that connects to significant public offices, for example, president, individual from Congress, or state governor or legislator. Put a man with a preference for the criminal in such an office without appropriate shields, and defilement is en route. We’ve seen this such a significant number of times, that it barely needs bringing up.
At that point, there are the individuals who go past simply some impact peddling or money laundering. Either unbridled avarice or a desire for more power pushes them into demonstrations of stunning corruption. Now and again, individuals turn up dead. In all cases, general society is additionally a casualty of such criminal acts.
Brian Joyce is a previous state representative in Massachusetts. It would appear that he has been endeavoring to win the prize for the greater number of indictments by a public authority. The number stands at 113 counts. Federal authorities are calling this a “criminal enterprise.” They have that right.
VIA The Daily Caller
“Former Massachusetts state Sen. Brian Joyce was arrested and charged with running his office as a ‘criminal enterprise’ Friday, and is now facing a 113 count indictment from the federal government.
“JOYCE IS REPORTED TO HAVE GAINED $1 MILLION THROUGH BRIBES AND KICKBACKS AND HAS ALSO BEEN CHARGED WITH RACKETEERING, EXTORTION, HONEST SERVICES FRAUD, MONEY LAUNDERING, AND CONSPIRACY TO DEFRAUD THE IRS, ACCORDING TO NEWSWEEK.
“The 55-year-old Democrat was taken into custody by the FBI after a two-year investigation and was found to have accepted ‘hundreds of pounds’ of Dunkin Doughnuts coffee, after he pulled strings for a local franchise owner, Newsweek reports.”
One could be pardoned for sitting tight for the punchline, thinking this must be a joke. All things considered, being purchased off with “several pounds” of coffee from a donut shop? What did he do with everything?
Be that as it may, it’s not a joke.
“Prosecutors accused Joyce of using his law firm to launder money while he was still working as a state legislator.”
Given the extensive variety of criminal activities in which Joyce is alleged to have drawn in, one thinks about how he discovered time for whatever else. On the off chance that blameworthy, it would be evident that he observed his public office to be a fantastic vehicle for individual improvement through corrupt activities.
Some portion of the disaster is that this kind of thing is common to the point that it never again amazes or even shock individuals any longer. Without specifying names, we can consider a significant number of people who have held government workplaces whose corruption influences Joyce to resemble a rank beginner. That those people remain unindicted is a measure of the disappointment of our justice system.
It looks likely that Mr. Joyce will be spending time in jail. Provided that this is true, he can, in any event, anticipate all the more free coffee.
