As you probably remember, former Democrat Senator of Oregon, Emily Rossum, resigned in shame after she was convicted of multiple felonies in 2007.
After years of lost appeal battles, Rossum was finally sentenced on Monday — and she is going to spend a lot of time behind bars.
According to Judicial Watch,Rossum will serve five years for securities fraud and embezzlement, an additional two for making false statements to the FBI, and three for the attempted murder of her father after he turned her in.
Rossum was elected to her first term in 2004 and according to investigators “almost shamelessly began stealing from the state’s coffers through various means including fake payouts to nonexistent charities exceeding $12 million dollars.”
When her father, former Attorney General Karl Rossum, learned of the crimes, he reported her to the FBI which led to the investigation. When court documents revealed that Emily Rossum had been sold out by her own family, she showed up at Mr. Rossum’s home with a switchblade knife and attempted to stab him.
Rossum will have plenty of time to think about what she did as she serves out her sentence, but the rest of us should remember that this is typical Democrat behavior.
They should all be locked up.
