Old black folks robbing our black youth - another example of a “civil rights” politician that should retire.
Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, from the 30th Congressional District of Texas, got caught slipping last week. She had awarded thousands of dollars in Congressional Black Caucus scholarships to her relatives (i.e. grandchildren, grand nephews). Her excuse: she didn’t know it was wrong! I know you are probably thinking that she must be a first term congresswoman to not know this. Sike!! This chick has been in office since 1993!!! I was a Sophomore in college when she got her gig in D.C. I am now in my late 30’s and she is still in office!! And she has the nerve to talk about she didn’t know???
*Side Note* Still don’t think we need Term Limits for Politicians???
Well if she didn’t know the media did!! In July, I did a post on The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. It was obvious from the piece that they wanted to avoid anything that made them look shady. The foundation’s general counsel, Amy Goldson, came out saying that Johnson violated the rules. So I’m pretty sure they weren’t too pleased with Congresswoman Johnson and her scholarship give-away. All of the time she has spent in congress and she gets caught with her hand in the scholarship jar?? Why don’t these black politicians know better? They were sent to Washington to make sense of the political machine not to become influenced by it. The dope boys aren’t the only ones out here hurting the community. She must really think the people in her district are stupid. Wait until parents realize that their children missed out on scholarships because of some trickery. I’m also sure that ignorant black folks will talk about how the “white man” is plotting against blacks in congress. Well I have bad news for all my black nationalists out here in internet land. No need to blame the white man for this one. Johnson was wrong and she needs to face whatever repercussions come from this illegal activity. My personal suggestion – do the citizens of Texas a favor and retire immediately!!!!!!!!!!!
