Maybe he can form Crooks Against the NRA

Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway, a Democrat, in February warned the National Rifle Association that its convention was not welcome in his town. Makes sense because guns have no role in Texan history.

Caraway said, "There will be marches and demonstrations should they come to Dallas. It is time to put the heat on the NRA and demand that they work with elected officials in our country to establish gun laws that protect our children and keep our communities safe."

While he virtue signaled before the TV cameras, Mayor Pro Tem Caraway was hiding his wallet fattened by the money he stole from City Hall.

Guns.com reported, "The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced that Caraway pleaded guilty to conspiracy and tax evasion charges involving $450,000 in bribe and kickback payments stemming from securing a city school bus stop-arm camera contract for a Louisiana company. The Dallas Morning News later reported that Caraway resigned his public position in the aftermath of the revelations.

That Caraway was a crook surprised no one in town, according to Gromer Jeffers Jr. a political writer for the Dallas Morning News.

Jeffers wrote, "That Dwaine Caraway is guilty of bribery and tax evasion charges is not a shock.

"It's a shame.

"Throughout his long history on the Dallas political scene, Caraway has had a reputation of being a hustler prone to ethical lapses and someone likely to get caught up in a public corruption probe."

So why did the city fathers of Dallas put up with him? These swells are just as scummy as he was because they knew and did nothing to stop him.

He was not just a councilman; he was a council leader and in 2012, he served as mayor temporarily.

Corruption does not just happen. He prostituted public office. The johns live on, untouched by federal prosecutors. They not only enjoy their freedom but their political influence as well.

  5. Perhaps the city fathers were afraid they would be called racist if they failed to look the other way while Caraway stole.
