Knapp was a chump. If he had a Democratic DA he could have stolen a hot stove and come back for the smoke.
Well it’s not like it was a million dollars. What’s the big deal? :>} Had it been a republicrat they’d have been in jail doing 3 to 7.
Typical DIMocRAT politician.
election fraud is TREASON and they should be hung, not pleading out to 2 misdemeanors!
We need more campaign finance reform. That will fix these problems.
But, they are Dims; the laws don’t apply to them!
