Two Philadelphia-area Democrat state legislators have been indicted for accepting bribes in exchange for opposition to photo voter identification legislation. Pennsylvania state Rep. Ron Waters (D) was charged for allegedly accepting a $8,750 bribe to oppose the voter ID bill. Gifts from Tiffany Jewelry were also offered to the legislators to oppose voter ID bills.
State Rep. Vanessa Brown (D) of Philadelphia was also charged with criminal conspiracy, bribery in official and political matters, conflict of interest and failing to make required disclosures on statements of financial interest.
PJ Media aggressively called for the indictment of these Democrat legislators when it was revealed that they accepted bribes to oppose voter identification legislation. The Democrat attorney general of Pennsylvania, Kathleen Kane, refused to proceed, saying that the case lacked merit. The Philadelphia district attorney, however, took on the case and indicted the legislators today. The United States Department of Justice has conducted public corruption investigations against Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell (R) and Republicans in the South Carolina Legislature. No federal investigation, however, seems to have been conducted involving the acceptance of bribes to oppose voter identification legislation.
