Associated Press/NBC5DFW [Texas], by Frank Heinz

Original Article

Posted By:john56, 7/26/2014 1:20:39 AM

Longtime Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price was arrested Friday and charged with taking $950,000 in bribes in what prosecutors say was a scheme to use his position on the commissioner´s court to enrich himself. A 13-count indictment unsealed Friday names Price, his longtime chief of staff Dapheny Elaine Fain and two political consultants, Kathy Louise Nealy and Christian Lloyd Campbell. Price and Nealy are accused of conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud and tax evasion. Campbell is accused of participating in the conspiracy. Price and Fain are accused of running a business that provided Price with another $133,000 that was never reported on income taxes.

Today´s entry in our favorite L.dotter game -- "Name the Political Party of the Perp!"

Obvious hint #1 -- the article does not identify the political affiliation of any of the accused.

I know, I can do the search. But it´s more fun to do it the old fashioned way.

Of course, if perchance Mr. Price was a member of the Republican party the headline would read:

"Republican Price caught taking $950,000 in bribes."

According to the Dallas Morning News he is indeed a Democrat:

“Authorities allege that Price, a Democrat, masterminded a criminal conspiracy that helped businesses win lucrative county contracts in exchange for bribes. He did so, authorities say, while trading his political influence and insider information for money.”

Bribery, mail/bankruptcy/tax fraud, conspiracy, and money laundering...sounds like he´s a prime candidate for a plush WH job as say heading up the Treasury Dept. No, make that the No-Justice Dept. After all, he´s one of Holder´s boys.

May I offer a bit of defense to KXAS-Channel 5? I promise Frank Heinz and Channel 5 took for granted local watchers and listeners knew JWP´s party affiliation. He´s been in our news for years.

I´m loving this arrest. The story´s been building in local media and we´ve always assumed Price was dirty. At last, maybe Dallas County and City of Dallas governments are being cleaned up.

The Ross Perot group was among the many beneficiaries of John Wiley´s zoning and real estate maneuverings.

OP thanks for the post. It was fun. It´s like looking for Waldo. However, like Poster #2 said being a political leader in a major US city and you´re likely a Democrat. I prefer just observing minority status knowing that about 95% of blacks vote Democrat. Don´t call me a racist, just call be a realist.

This guy is a real charmer! Love the snappy outfit he´s wearing.

I did a quick Wiki check:

Price has aroused local controversy during his time in office. During the 1980s and 1990s Price would lead protests for racial issues in the Dallas area. In the spring of 1990 Price threatened a citywide “call to arms” if the city manager did not pick someone sensitive to minorities for a new police chief. Price was quoted in the paper as saying “M-16´s and all, we will take to the (expletive) street, we´ll shoot at (expletive) police cars.”

I´ve actually seen articles when the Democrat elected perp isn´t identified by party affiliation, but Republicans interviewed by the RAT-infested media whore (politely referred to as a "journalist") are quoted and identified by their party affiliation.

One article not only quoted and identified as Republicans local Republican officials about the politically un-identified crook, they also talked to one of the crook´s primary opponents, identifying the interviewed as the loser in the primary, but not identifying that person´s political party.

But anytime a Republican gets anything from a jaywalking ticket or an overdue library book fine, it´s "Local Republican in Terrible Ethical Scandal! Party´s Leadership in Turmoil!"

FEC chairman warns book publishers
at risk of regulation at heated meeting

The Republican chairman of the Federal Election Commission warned Wednesday that his agency colleagues could try to regulate book publishers, during a heated session over a forthcoming book by GOP Rep. Paul Ryan. During the meeting, the FEC declined to definitively spare book publishers from the reach of campaign finance rules. This triggered a clash between Republican and Democratic members, with Chairman Lee Goodman warning that the deadlock could represent a "chill" for constitutional free-press rights. "That is a shame. ... We have wounded the free-press clause of the First Amendment," Goodman told

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats.

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Four teachings from Jesus

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Perry made his remarks in a "One-on-One Conversation" with Texas Tribune CEO and Editor-in-Chief Evan Smith at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual event organized by the online media outlet.

Fraternities at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, must start accepting women and all residential fraternities must become fully co-educational over the next three years, the school’s Board of Trustees has ruled. The decision was made “with equality and inclusion in mind,” school President Michael Roth and Trustee Chairman Joshua Boger wrote in an email to students on Monday, Business Insider reported. “Our residential Greek organizations inspire loyalty, community and independence. That’s why all our students should be eligible to join them.” The school has focused on issues with Greek life ever since a woman filed a lawsuit against Wesleyan two years ago

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.

Gen. Michael Nagata is promising to build a new force to destroy ISIS, but lawmakers worry he has been given an impossible mission. As lawmakers prepared to take a risky and fateful vote on Obama’s plan to train and equip the Syrian rebels, the man who assured them it could be done was Gen. Michael Nagata, Obama’s point man for the mission to build an ISIS-killing army in Syria. There are skeptics both inside and outside the government who doubt Obama’s new plan to arm the Syrian rebels can work. First of all, the administration has said for years that the moderate
