A top lawmaker was just arrested and the Democrats are stunned. They never expected this to happen, and the election-year timing couldn’t be worse for them. This is unreal.
“FBI and IRS agents arrested state Rep. David Nangle (D-Mass.) Tuesday at his home just north of Boston,” reported One America News Network (OAN). He is “facing dozen of corrupted charges.”
According to OAN, the Massachusetts Democrat stands accused of using campaign funds — over $70,000 of it — like his personal piggy-bank. If convicted, he could face decades in prison.
The report notes that Nangle spent campaign funds on legally prohibited luxuries such as “golf club dues, gambling as well as hotel and restaurant charges,” and it’s been happening for years.
Andrew Lelling, the U.S. attorney for Massachusetts appointed by President Trump, released a statement calling Nangle to task for his alleged corruption and revealed just how long the illegal activity has occurred.
Lelling said that Nangle “went beyond” the usual corruption and engaged in “a systematic pattern of theft and fraud going back to at least 2014.” Now he will have to face the consequences.
