Ouch. I am laughing because the wheels of Justice are turning, not because of the downfall of others. Don't you want Justice to reign? Personally, I want to see ALL corrupt persons convicted. No exceptions. Corruption destroys the quality of life for everyone!

Seems like some of you guys don't share my joy..

I took a lot of blows on this blog when I said that this guy was serially corrupt. But I am a big girl and took it on the chin coolly because I did not have scales on my eyes and could see that the emperor was naked. It was only a matter of time.

I wish we could undo all his dastardly deals.

So my fellow Gotham City residents, get your popcorn, sit back and celebrate the death of corruption in our fine home. Raise your glass of mango juice with me. And yes, laugh.

Here's an update.
Looks like only local involvement, no feds.

Guess that's why Mapp returned the check deJongh issued for the Mafoliegate fiasco.

what a joke! he was charged with embezzling $490k in the creation of his fence. strictly a local prosecution, no federales involved.

Would you like a napkin to wipe your mouth after eating crow?

Nice new name, Miss Justice!! 8-)(tu)

It isn't that we don't want DeJongh indicted if he committed crimes. It's that we want him convicted through a legitimate process. VI Consortium has been wrong many times, and even if they are correct, do you really trust the AGs office? Do you not remember how thoroughly corrupt that office is?

The same office that counseled DeJongh through every step of his administration is now prosecuting him? Hilarious! 8-):-) They would have to also arrest half of their own staff as accomplices!

The counseled him or he ordered them?

I am shaking my head. You defend him to the bitter end. Can I be your friend?

VIC is now saying that the feds weren't involved at all, and that it was solely carried out by the gas-guzzlers at the Superior Court and the VI Attorney General. No retraction, nothing. They simply edited their previous piece to make it look like it said that all along. Is that what they call journalism? So sick of them.

Anyway, it seems like he has been charged with the embezzlement of public monies. Even while Mapp used public funds to rent a mansion for personal use. Mapp should do the ideologically-consistent thing and resign.

To be clear, Miss Justice, I can't stand DeJongh. My dream would be that he is prosecuted for corruption by a reliable authority (the federal government) for corruption. He is being prosecuted to draw attention away from Mapp's blatant theft of monies for personal use. That's not how prosecution is supposed to work. It's bittersweet.

As long as our AG is a political hack, we cannot have faith in any prosecution with political implications. Especially where Mapp said he was going to arrest DeJongh during the campaign. That is NOT how our system of Justice works. It CANNOT be so explicitly political. There will be lots of motions here by his attorneys. I would subpoena Mapp to testify as to his involvement here, especially given his promise to "get" DeJongh during the campaign. Can no one else see the problems here?

And yes, we can be friends! I'm a lot of fun LOL :D;)

Yep, looks like Juan Luis it is.

The great historian has spoken authoritatively after spending a grand total of 2 months in the USVI. How old were you when Governor Luis was in office or do you receive such data via your tinfoil headpiece?

Indeed VI Consortium has changed their story without acknowledging No Bueno. So now they are as unreliable as the Daily News and the Stx Avis. The Avis editor endorsed deJojn and refused ro cover the Madoliegate hearing

I couldn't care less about deJonge but these charges seem pretty lightweight. I'm a bit disappointed that it wasn't something that involved the Feds. I predict he'll get off with a fine on this one.

Sorry but if there's no Federal Government involvement, then I don't fully trust the local, present AG's office under Mapp to get it right.
This is same AG that was just in front of Senate yesterday(?) requesting money for his dept. as they don't have adequate staffing to persue cases.
Guess that's why Mapp fired everyone when he put in Terry Griffith (3AGs ago) and Soroya resigned and Mapp refused DeJongh' s check.

Seems like a convenient distraction from all the Daily New' s requests for Mapp's and his administration's spending that they've ignored from day 1.

IMO, VI AG is jumping the gun and should have awaited federal indictments to come down. There's a tangled web that needs complete unraveling.

Correct. The Federal DOJ has been awash with money ever since 9/11. They have plenty resources to prosecute these crimes. The local DOJ should have turned over any and all information to the feds. But that would defeat their clear purpose, you see--the political destruction of DeJongh. Mapp NEEDS this prosecution more than any other party. Especially after his own illegal acts were brought out (using public funds for personal enrichment).

It'll be over in two months. Then he'll have a party thrown by Carty, Dowe, Nathan Simmonds, etc etc

They couldn't prosecute a fly.

Monogram, your post above-the longer one was good.

so my question is-he had a partial payment and wanted to set up a payment plan. why not just allow him to do that instead of wasting all these peoples time and the governments money .

just a dog and pony show

That is completely correct. Thanks for the kind words. DeJongh already had a binding contract to pay back the funds, and he sent a check for the market value of the improvements. They returned his check to waste millions now on a prosecution. I hate DeJongh, but he said from DAY 1 that he would pay every cent back. When is Mapp paying US TAXPAYERS BACK for that mansion? And his Ritz Carlton residence? And his private charter jets trips?

DeJonge is no rookie in this area. He knows the way around the locals. I'm sure he has dirt on just about everyone associated with his term.

Which is why if there was to be an arrest, it should have been by Feds. This is a dog and pony show created by Mapp. More smoke and mirrors and waste of VI taxpayer's money.

All this, while Mapp now wants 2 $350K limos for himself and Potter for "ceremonial" purposes, he and entourage jet around 1st class, stay at the Ritz, personal chef, chauffeur, body guards, exorbitant rents, etc., all on taxpayer dollar.

They all need to go to jail! By Federal indictments.

All while the President of Uruguay lives in an old house and drives this car (see link):

Most mayor of small towns DO NOT get cars--they drive their own. U.S. Senators and Supreme Court Justices don't even get limos (or cars at all). They drive their own. Joe Biden took the train every day as a Senator for decades!!!

Here's comment a friend just sent me:
"This is just a dog and pony show. The arrest was local using documentation from an unsealed federal file. The local government likely negotiated to arrest JDJ locally to avoid a potential federal case as what was told to me by a reliable source. They are all in it, and will avoid federal prosecution which is what they should be getting. Nothing more than the same bullshit gravy train rolling over the Virgin Islands people."

Someone else sent this:
"The crimes are punishable by a fine of not more than $10,000,” AG Walker added, “or imprisonment of not more than ten years, or both.”

A $10K Fine?
We know he's not going to jail if tried, locally.
He, too, knows where all the bodies are buried.

DeJongh also appointed all the judges currently on the Superior Court, as well as all three of the Supreme COurt judges (if he should decide to appeal). HAHAHAHA What a JOKE.

You are not exactly an Ancestral Native Islander, either. It's comical to see you playing this "Yo ain' bahn ya" tribal game with me. I am happy to play!

The fact is that every single VI governor since Juan Luis, one after another, has been either charged with or convicted on criminal offenses. If you'd like to dispute this, I welcome your take on it.
