    Ohio Democrat tried to trade votes for cash, could get 50 years in prison, authorities say

    A Cincinnati city councilwoman could face up to 50 years in prison after being arrested Tuesday on federal corruption charges, authorities say, according to reports.

    Shortly after being taken into custody, Tamaya Dennard appeared in court in handcuffs and leg irons to face charges of honest services fraud, bribery and attempted extortion, FOX 19 of Cincinnati reported.

    In one instance, a source linked to a downtown development project, who was cooperating with the FBI, handed Dennard a cashier’s check for $10,000.

    “Oh, that’s perfect,” Dennard, 40, is heard saying on a recording, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “Thank you. … I’m going right to the bank on this.”

    Does this mean that she took a check for the bribe and was headed to her bank so as to make a deposit?

    Has she never been to the movies?
    Or read a newspaper?

    She should go on Fox to plead her case to Trump.

    Coincidently, Roger Stone was also facing a potential sentence of 50 years. after being found guilty by a jury on all 7 counts!

    Can we assume that should a Democratic president be elected, Trump and his supporters will remain silent should this new President "mirror" the recent actions of his/her predecessor by attacking the integrity of the presiding judge, the jury foreperson, the prosecutors, the Department of Justice ..... ?

    She acts like she thinks she's Trump.

    Given that this President has just pardoned the former Governor of Illinois for attempting to sell-off Barack Obama's Senate seat, Ms Dennard's transgression pales in comparison!

    The FOXNEWS suggestion is closer to the truth than one might think, all 11 of those given a recent presidential pardon had one thing in common - each was the subject of discussion at one time or another on the "Pardon Network," which is what separates them from the other 14 000 applications for a presidential pardon that were ignored!
