Yet another Democrat being investigated. From Gateway Pundit:
A federal grand jury is investigating Democrat Gregory Meeks for his involvement with a charity that raised money for Hurricane Katrina victims who never received a dime. Meeks is also being investigated for a shady house deal.
The National Legal and Policy Center reported:
According to the New York Daily News today, a federal grand jury is investigating some of Queens’ most prominent politicians, including Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY). NLPC first exposed Meeks’ involvement with a charity called New Direction that raised money for Hurricane Katrina victims who never received it. NLPC also first exposed Meeks’ purchase of a home for far less than it is worth.
In a Complaint to the House Ethics Committee filed on March 19, NLPC asked for an investigation of Meeks’ purchase of the house. The Complaint detailed how a contractor named Robert Gaskin not only built the home for Meeks, but also did work for several other Queens politicians and nonprofits they control. At the same time, Gaskin received numerous contracts on taxpayer-funded projects.
