Former Rep. TJ Cox (D-CA) is going to screw up the news cycle for Democrats.
Cox now joins a long list of Democrats indicted for fraud over the last few years.
Cox, in all likelihood, will do time behind bars, unlike most of his political buddies.
After serving only one term, I doubt that he will have earned enough clout to get out of this mess.
Corrupt from the Outset
Cox started the scheme six years before being elected to office.
For years, he was scamming people out of money “through false representations, pretenses and promises.”
He made more than $1.7 million running his little hustle.
Cox was also charted with fabricating bank statements to defraud mortgage lenders.
For his efforts, Cox is now charged with 15 counts of wire fraud, 11 counts of money laundering, one count of financial institution fraud, and one count of campaign contribution fraud in the Eastern District of California.
He could potentially do 55 years in prison with $1.5 million in fines.
I doubt that will happen, but I don’t see him getting out of this with a plea and a slap on the wrist.
