Chaka Fattah, Jr., was convicted of 22 of the 23 charges against him for embezzling money meant as business loans as well as $1 million in education funds he misspent. Fattah, Jr., is noted for being a big spender, using other people’s money. Yep, he’s a Democrat all right. His daddy won’t be far behind him. Daddy, a sitting member of the House of Representatives, is under indictment for racketeering. among other indiscretions. He stole from a charity to repay a campaign loan
Chaka Jr represented himself and had a fool for a client. The only charge he wasn’t convicted of was tax fraud. He was charged with fraudulently obtained business loans with no intention of using them for that purpose. He also applied for education contracts in which he collected one million dollars but never satisfied the contracts, instead using the money to continue his lavish lifestyle.
Fattah Jr. was charged with obtaining business loans and federal education contracts to support a lavish lifestyle, which included a luxury condominium. In his opening statement, he described himself as a hard-working entrepreneur targeted by government prosecutors relying on speculation.
Federal prosecutors, in contrast, argued he was a scam artist who launched a number of small businesses to secure financing at local banks. He spent the money, Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Gray said, on flashy clothes, expensive bar tabs and luxury cars for himself – all the while neglecting to pay taxes on much of his income.
Fattah countered that he was being criticized “for trying to figure out how to make money. How to make a living. How to pay my rent.”
How arrogant do you have to be to criticize people who condemn you for stealing money to live on? I guess he inherited it from daddy, who is charged with racketeering conspiracy, money laundering and other crimes. Maybe they can be roommates in Cell Block “C.”
