A Dallas official pleaded guilty Thursday to federal charges after prosecutors said he earned more than $450,000 in kickbacks and bribes in exchange for official actions taken to benefit local business dealings.
Democrat Dwaine Caraway, Dallas city council member and mayor pro tem, pleaded guilty in court to conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud, as well as tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox announced in a news release.
The funds Caraway received were in the form of a phony consulting agreement, luxury suits, fully funded trips, gambling money, repayment of personal debt, checks and cash from Robert Leonard in return for taking action that benefited the latters business, the news release said, citing court documents.

D’rats, SCUMBAGS, liars, looters, conmen, criminals run roughshod over the republic.
The story was going to be featured on Info Wars, but the SiliconValley honchos 86-ed Alex Jones and his company.
Take 200 million in bribes and you get an honorary doctorate from Yale, and catered cocktail parties all around D.C.
The corruption in government seems limitless.
Note he smiling like he won the lottery. Nice house too!
Ain’t that the truth...
You and me, we have a WHOLE different set of laws that apply to us, though.
Anyone else fed up with it yet???
Gonna have to tune in to WBAP tonight just to hear Chris bag on DWAINE! as he usually does..
In other local news, I sense panic is starting to seep into the Dallas Cowboys and their fandom, with the announcement that Dak and many starters will play tonight in SF.
Apparently, Dak hasn't had a very good training camp, and he's got the worst collection of receivers in the NFL. When Cole Beasley is your #1 target, you're hurting.
Game starts at 9.
Local media has been way too chummy with the Cowboys over the past several years IMO.
Tuning in now. Love the sound bytes.
I used to get Chris around here (on AM) and I called into his show once. I THINK he was out of GA at the time.
Stealing taxpayers money while having the Confederate monuments removed. Nice distraction tactic.
When is it going to be John Wiley Price’s turn to be perp walked?
The plea agreement has him serving no more than 7 or 10 years, depending on the source of the information.
The feds tried and failed to get the POS Price convicted. He’s a real piece of filth.
Dallas has been on the decline for two decades now.
Will this get as much air time as yesterday’s story about the individual with an “R” after his name?
