Chakka Fattah Indicted For Fraud

Chakka Fattah is the new poster child
Of graft and corruption run wild
And yet another example of why we need limits on the term billets
No matter the reform minded at inception ideals the more they stay greater chance to pivot
A reform-minded Blue at inception
Appropriations committee post and landslide elections
 Now indicted for fraud and siphoning federal funds to repay his campaign debt
To the dismay of the voters who on him had placed the voting bet
A million dollars of campaign debt alleged to have been repaid
From honesty and integrity this former rising star has really strayed
Too much power, too much money from the federal trough to disburse
No wonder Fattah fell under the sway of the corruption curse
In passing one might question Fattah’s mental state
To leave a district for life to run for mayor with far less power there to him await
