Bill Proposed To Strip Pensions From Convicted Gov Officials
What can we do to increase chances of this or strong similar bill passes?
Hmm, if that bill passes, then corruption will be both a problem and a solution for the people!
Think it's a great bill.
I'm going to write senators and ask that they support it.
Too many, even when convicted, get a slap on the wrist as a sentence. Time to hit them where it hurts just like they've done to the voters and public they've been shown to have betrayed.
Please inform Gittens that the problem is with getting them convicted in the first place. A bill increasing the size of the AGs office AND making the office independent would do wonders. The government is thoroughly corrupt.
Louis Willis has been convicted TWICE. That's a start. Alvin Williams convicted, but may not have qualified for pension. Let's see what happens with latest charges against Castro, Woods, and Francis. Federal case. Bill should include federal convictions.
Any conviction. Local or federal.
Of course as monogram pointed out, the AG has to be up to the task,
from start to finish.
If federal money is involved, no worry about AG. Castro, et al, are under feds jurisdiction.
For every Alvin Williams, there's a Carlton Dowe who is acquitted. Or an Amos Carty, who walks. Or a Najawicz, or a Cohen, or...
Exactly, then gets rewarded with another government appointed job at a top salary where it's "business as usual!"
We have better chances of curtailing corruption if we report misuse of federal funds since so many projects get federal funding. I was tempted to report one particular agency, but decided against it because I didn't want people to lose their jobs.
Could care less now, so will report what I consider waste and or abuse if I see it again at this agency.
Why wait "until you see it again?"
Report it the first time.
While I am in support of this bill, not sure it doesn't contravene constitutional rights. They'd need a legal opinion, I think.
Yeah, the VI legislature is pretty good at writing crappy laws. Remember the first time they outlawed bullets? They wrote the law such that not even cops could legally possess ammo.
Don't stop the….. Legislators...
