Seems like every week a corrupt Democrat is arrested, charged, and/or removed from office for breaking the law — and the streak continued this week.
A top Democratic lawmaker and longtime D.C. Council member Jack Evans is stepping down after his own colleagues threatened to remove him from his seat.
Evans, the longest-serving lawmaker announced that he would be resigning from the seat he’s held since 1991 effective Jan. 17.
Evans’ resignation follows a months-long ethics scandal and comes right before the council was set to hold a vote to expel him.
He is resigning weeks after the council voted unanimously 12–0 to recommend his expulsion.
A federal investigation has since been opened and is ongoing.
In other words, Evans is another corrupt Democrat who resigned in shame just before the council was scheduled to vote in favor of expelling him from office.
While his resignation may have saved Evans from the embarrassment of being expelled from the D.C. council, it won’t make the alleged ethics violations — and the related investigations — go away.
