Don Hill was, at one time, the Mayor Pro Tem of the city of Dallas. He was convicted Monday of money laundering (or, what they’re calling the “funneling of bribe money”), among other official corruption charges. Essentially, they were found guilty of selling their votes on certain zoning cases involving projects in their districts.
Federal prosecutors say that public outrage over the selling of votes at Dallas City Hall led to near-complete convictions Monday in a historic corruption case that brought down former Mayor Pro Tem Don Hill and his cohorts.
Acting U.S. Attorney Jim Jacks called the verdicts a “resounding decision” showing that the public doesn’t want a government “where the game is rigged.”
It’s rather a shame Jerry
FuckBuchmeyer couldn’t have survived to see this. This is his legacy, after all. When you’ve got, basically, 14 little fiefdoms run by 14 little slum lords, and those slum lords have almost totalitarian control over zoning issues in their fiefdoms, corruption was bound to occur. And since Jerry the Tin-Horned Bench Jockey was solely responsible for forcing 14-1 on the City of Dallas, the blood is on his hands for this one.
I didn’t say it before, but I’ll say it now: Good riddance, Jerry Fuckmeyer.
