Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” (MAIG) has been rife with corruption since the get go, and a recent occurrence has only further gone to solidify such a reality. According to reports, a MAIG Democrat has recently been arrested, jailed and charged with a felony account of bribery.
Gordon Jenkins, the Democrat Mayor of Monticello, NY, was formally charged with bribery, as well as “endangering the public,” on Thursday. According to the Washington Free Beacon, “The charges included ‘bribe receiving’ and ‘endangering the public health’; the mayor “was also charged with intimidating a witness, a felony, in connection with an incident in Fallsburg.”
Apparently this isn’t the first time Jenkins has been in a bit of hot water either as, last year, he was charged with driving while intoxicated. Since that time, constituents have declared him “incompetent,” and the recent charged only go to prove that further.
Jenkins is the latest to join the ranks of discovered corrupt officials operating within the ranks of Bloomberg’s MAIG. Earlier in April, former Democratic Mayor and MAIG member, Noramie Jasmin, was also officially charged with bribery as well.
They say that with money comes corruption, but what do you think? Why is it that those who represent the people, seem to more care about themselves than anyone else? Feel free to also let us know why it is that Bloomberg’s group is laden with so much corruption as well.
