Massachusetts Democrat Indicted On Extortion Charges

Yes, I know, Massachusetts Democrat is kind of redundant. Do they even have any Republicans left up there?

Well, whatever the case, as you can see above, this Dianne Wilkerson gladly takes the cash and stuffs it in her sweater.

Very subtle. What happened to manila envelopes filled with cash?
A Massachusetts state senator, photographed by the FBI allegedly stuffing bribe money under her sweater, has been indicted on eight counts of attempted extortion.

Prosecutors filed a criminal complaint in October alleging Sen. Dianne Wilkerson accepted cash payments between June 2007 and October 2008. The formal grand jury indictment was handed down Tuesday.

The indictment also seeks the forfeiture of the more than $23,500 in payments allegedly made to the Boston Democrat by undercover agents and a cooperating witness during the 18-month investigation.

If convicted, Wilkerson faces up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine on each of the eight charges.

Wilkerson, who is free on a $50,000 unsecured bond, has said there is "more to this story."
I give her about five minutes before she starts playing the race card.
