    Monica Conyers Pleads Guilty

    It's nice to see some politican getting caught for forgetting they are not in the business of profit making because of the powers bestowed by the people. I hope she gets the maximum, and that this case will scare others who have-- or are thinking--of taking bribes to think twice.

    Conyers Facing Up To 5 Years In Prison

    POSTED: Friday, June 26, 2009
    UPDATED: 10:55 am EDT June 26, 2009

    DETROIT -- Detroit City Council member Monica Conyers pleaded guilty Friday to accepting cash bribes in exchange for supporting a sludge contract with a Houston company.

    Conyers, 44, was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit bribery for allegedly accepting two payments from a Synagro Technologies official in late 2007, including one in a McDonald's parking lot.

    She entered her plea before Judge Avern Cohn at 10 a.m. with her attorney Steven Fishman.

    Conyers was solemn in court, having to be asked three times by the judge to speak up.

    Conyers is facing three to five years in prison and up to $200,000 in fines. No sentencing date has been set.

    I guess since her party affiliation is not mentioned she must be a democrat.

    Is she a Democrat or does Fox News label her as a Democrat? There's a difference you know.

    Considering her husband is congressman John Conyers(D) and they didn't provide a party affiliation I think the point is quite valid and it's not an extreme logical step to say she is a Democrat, not that it matters as it is political corruption from yet another official.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    She's a Detroit City Council member. That alone means it should just be assumed she's a democrat.

    It's theoretically possible for a conservative republican to get elected to a public office there -Hell, we've even got one or two here in Chicago- but it's still fairly safe to make the assumption.

    I didn't know that American city-level politicians belonged to a party. That is not the case here in Canada.

    It's stupid and foolish to believe that because one member of a group acts one way, that all members of that group will act the same way, as Reverend_Hellhound seems to be implying.

    Eh, it's okay. Democrats get to play the "all Republicans are closet homosexuals in public bathrooms while having affairs but also protecting the sanctity of marriage" card.

    EDIT: Grammar check.
