If you need any other reason to vote out every incumbent you see on the ballot on Tuesday This is a good one
Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner was convicted today in a federal court in Boston on charges that he pocketed a $1,000 bribe in his district office in 2007 and later lied about it to federal agents who were interviewing him.
A US District Court jury delivered its verdict this afternoon, just a few hours into its first full day of deliberations, finding Turner guilty of attempted extortion, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, and three counts of providing false statements to FBI agents, each of which carries a maximum sentence of five years.
We’ll see what ‘ol Chuck gets for hard time, but this level of corruption is what happens when our public servants start serving themselves rather than serving us.
Put the fear of God into them on Tuesday!
