FBI arrest Cincinnati Democrats for accepting bribes for votes

FBI agents on Thursday arrested Cincinnati Democrat City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld for illegally accepting bribes in exchange for votes.

Thursday’s arrest marks the third arrest on the city’s corrupt council this year.

According to Fox19:

Charges unveiled against Sittenfeld in his 20-page indictment allege he schemed to funnel money from developers into a political action committee (PAC) that he secretly controlled, court records show.

The “developers” were really undercover FBI agents who handed a total of $40,000 in Sittenfeld checks on three different occasions, according to the indictment.

Sittenfeld, who could not be immediately reached for comment, is running to be Cincinnati’s mayor and considered by some as the front runner with thousands of dollars raised for his campaign.

He is now the third Cincinnati City Councilmember to be arrested on corruption charges this year and the second in the past week alone.

Federal authorities recently revealed in court records they were investigating corruption and bribery related to votes and development projects and said more prosecution were coming.

U.S. Attorney David DeVillers said at a news conference last week that accepting campaign donations in exchange for favors also violates federal law.

    • The FBI is bad enough, definitely, but sometimes you have to start with the low-hanging fruit to reveal what’s farther up in the tree.

  1. And who was paid 106 MILLION to utilize the smartmatic system And look at all of the Democrats, Pelosi and Co s involvement with Dominion and its executive body. All being ignored by the manipulative snakey media bandwagon of pimps and whores .

  2. FBI creating more crimes they can prosecute.. Sure it’s nice they got this creep? There are REAL crimes and crimes in process they could be stopping.

  3. FBI, always going after the small timers. where in the hell are they? they should be in Philadelphia and Georgia and Nevada. for f sake. we are screwed.
