Political Money Laundering

Criminal charges against politicians for money laundering are almost never brought up. Usually, if charges do happen, they are against the people who paid into the campaigns of the politicians instead and rarely do the politicians have to give the money back.


Criminal charges against politicians for money laundering are almost never brought up.  Usually, if charges do happen, they are against the people who paid into the campaigns of the politicians instead and rarely do the politicians have to give the money back.  A current case in Riverside, California, in which a man known as the “potato baron” funneled huge sums of money into two political campaigns in 2009, is a good example.  Now, two years later, the accused is finally being brought to trial, but no one is asking the two candidates involved where the money is or demanding that they return it.

 

Looking at the other side of the coin, we can look at a current case in Texas.  In this case, a man received investment funds from people and was to use it to invest in commercial real estate as part of a trust he'd set up.  The real estate would be leased out to businesses and the profits from those leases would be paid as dividends to the trustees. 

 

Instead, the man leased real estate using the trust funds and kept the rest of the money, which he moved around in various banks in order to hide its true origins.  Prosecutors are charging the man with money laundering and several other crimes, but have also gone after the trustees, claiming that they were in on this scam and profiting from the interest the investor made and divvied out as “dividends.”

 

Somehow, the politicians aren't to blame for anything, despite being the ultimate profiteers from the money laundering scam in their case. 

 

Another clear case of duplicity in our justice system.  Something honest attorneys should take note of and work to rectify.
