How in the hell?
Does this woman not go to jail? Isn’t what she did a crime? How is this possible? How is she not fired, arrested and held accountable? How does the system work that someone supposedly held to higher standards than the rest, since her job is predicated on people VOTING her into office, is held to a set of rules no one else is? I am asking because I am not sure I understand. She is ‘immune’ from sentencing or serving or being convicted of committing a crime? Didn’t the Kwame Brown (think that’s his name) go to jail for this or something similar in Michigan? How about the folks offering the bribes? How does that work?
And people wonder why we don’t trust our elected officials?
EDIT! Obviously I didn’t google any of this and was posting off the cuff after seeing something on her that just made me have to ask the question. Kwame Kilpatrick is who I was referring to and from what I understand Diane Wilkerson was arrested and posted bail. However, how can she be allowed to continue holding a job ‘serving the public’? And someone referred to the fact that both are black, and insinuated something about that, noting there are many white elected officials every bit as bad, if not worse. Couldn’t agree more on the latter and as for the former, I could care less what color they are, yellow, red, white, black, green, whatever, the color is the least relevant issue to any of this.
