Gov. Contractor Sentenced for Bribery Scheme

This just in from the Department of Justice:

"A government contractor and former employee of the U.S. Department of the Treasury was sentenced in Washington today in connection with a bribery scheme involving contracts at the U.S. Tax Court in the District of Columbia, Acting Assistant Attorney General Rita M. Glavin of the Criminal Division announced."

It seems that a Maryland contractor who was also a planner for the Treasury Department gave a government employee $55,000 in bribes for two contract awards, one of them at the U.S. Tax Court worth $188,000.

The perp got 30 months.

Democracy is under seize at every level of government. We have raise a nation of swindlers, who look out for self only. How can we tout Democracy that leads to the detriment of its people? We are besieged by a recalcitrant two party system that operates to benefit--not the American people but self-interest and pay to play. Perhaps all existing elected officials with the exception of the President need to be recalled or replaced in an attempt at realignment for the benefit of the nation.
