On Friday, I got a call that a congressman had been arrested. Congressman Mike Ross, I am certain, is a good man. I wish him the best in his battle against cancer.
As I said, Congressman Ross is a good man. I wish him well in his fight against cancer and his next battle. I hope he has a few more years to live.
Congressman Ross has been charged with a federal crime. We’re not sure what it is, but given that we are a small community and this kind of thing happens fairly often, it’s not likely to be anything too serious or unusual. It’s probably just a misdemeanor offense. The congressman’s attorney has been asked to look into this and we’ll keep you posted.
It seems like a pretty standard misdemeanor offense, but given the circumstances, I guess it’s not that surprising. If you’re not familiar with the word “misdemeanor,” its a misdemeanor offense where an offense is committed under certain circumstances but not necessarily with any intent to commit the offense. The act itself is not required to be committed, and if it is, it is not a crime. So it’s not a really high level crime.
It seems like its just a petty crime.
Well, yes, but in some states, this act is considered a felony.
Congressman William Jefferson is one of the most powerful members on the House of Representatives. His arrest was only the latest in a series of high-profile incidents with the congressman, which has included multiple arrests for drunk driving and driving under the influence of alcohol, a misdemeanor that is punishable by up to a year in prison, and a domestic violence charge. In fact, he is currently on trial for this charge.
The latest incident with the congressman is the arrest of a former staffer from his district office. This former employee, who is a retired military officer, took his own life after a long and drawn out court battle in an attempt to clear his name of the accusation that he was the victim of domestic violence. This is a very sad example of the kind of thing that can happen when people can’t seem to handle the spotlight.
When a politician is arrested, the media (and eventually the public) begins to focus on his trial and his possible criminal conviction. It’s interesting to note, however, that the congressman is not the only politician that has been arrested this year. In March, the New York Police Department arrested former congressman Anthony Weiner on charges of sexting a minor and posting a photo of it online.
Weiner also accused former senator Scott Brown of sexual assault, however when the allegations came out during his trial, Brown was cleared of all charges. Brown is a Republican who ran for office as a Democrat in 2006 before being elected to the Senate.
