A Massachusetts mayor was arrested on Friday for allegedly extorting hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from marijuana vendors. Mayor Jasiel Correia, the Democrat mayor of Fall River, allegedly operated a scheme to help marijuana stores conduct business in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes, according to a tweet from the FBIs Boston field office.

Details to follow at 11 a.m. press conference @DMAnews1— FBI Boston (@FBIBoston) September 6, 2019
Im not guilty of these charges, the 27-year-old Democrat told reporters after the hearing, standing next to his attorney outside the courthouse. Ive done nothing but good for the great city of Fall River, me and my staff, and my team. Im going to continue to do great things for our citizens.
Correia has also been accused of extorting $3,900 in cash and a Rolex watch worth between $7,500 and $12,000 from a property owner in exchange for activating the water supply to his building.
Prosecutors say Correia took more than $360,000 from investors to develop an app called SnoOwl to help businesses connect with consumers.

For your interest.
He was justntrying to convince the vendors to stop dealing and become Democrat voters.
Don Vito was right about getting mixed up in this sort of business....
His career has gone to pot.
What the hell is that? a ken doll gone wrong?
Boy, he learned how to a Democrat politician fast!
Local politicians have been doing that since “The Whisky Rebellion”.
Put this guy under the jail!
Fall River. Is he Portuguese? Azores?
A lot in that area were from Cape Verde.
He is a fast learner. It usually takes Northern Dems decades to complete their Election-Jail lifecycle. At his age, he might even get another shot!
What’s a Democrat to do? Laws are for Republicans anyways
Okay, but other than extortion and bribery, and maybe sexual harassment, he appears to be the victim of some kind of racist politics. Probably Trump’s behind the whole thing!!! /s
