Former Dem Congressman Chaka Fattah Receives 10-Year Sentence on Corruption Charges

Former Democratic Rep. Chaka Fattah was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison on federal corruption charges, including fraud, racketeering, and money laundering.

Fattah, who represented several areas of Philadelphia in Congress, was convicted in June on 23 charges of corruption. His prison sentence will begin on Jan. 25, accordingthe Philadelphia Inquirer. Prosecutors had asked that Fattah receive 17 to 22 years in prison, the Inquirer reported earlier.

Prosecutors have asked that the Philadelphia Democrat receive a term of 17 to 22 years, but the defense has requested a much shorter term, calling the government’s recommendation “extreme” and “unnecessarily harsh.” They said such a punishment would be the longest prison term ever meted out to a member of Congress for corruption.

When is Elijah Cummings going to prison?

He is supposed to report to prison on Jan. 25. This date is no coincidence due to the fact that Nobama will leave office on Jan. 20 and on Jan. 19 is when Nobama will release his final pardon list, which by the way will be a massive and long list.
