The feds are keeping mighty busy cracking down on corruptocrats.

Tennessee.

New Jersey.

Now, Dallas. Guess which party the suspects belong to:

Federal prosecutors this morning announced sweeping conspiracy charges against State Rep. Terri Hodge, former Mayor Pro Tem Donald Hill, low-income housing developer Brian Potashnik and 11 others.

The charges contained in a 166-page indictment include bribery and kickbacks that Hodge and Hill allegedly accepted in exchange for using their offices to assist Potashnik’s company, Southwest Housing, gain construction contracts.

In a separate indictment, prosecutors accused former council member James Fantroy of embezzling federal funds in excess of $10,000 from Paul Quinn College.

Former city planning commissioner D’Angelo Lee and Sheila Farrington, Mr. Hill’s wife, also were named, along with Cheryl Potashnik, Darren Reagan, Allen McGill, Jibreel Rashad, Rickey Robertson, Andrea Spencer, Ronald Slovacek, Kevin Dean and John Lewis.

Here’s the PDF of the complete indictment. 31 counts involving bribery, tax evasion, conspiracy and extortion throughout Dallas City Hall.

The schemes involved abuse of federal affordable housing development programs and incentives.

Time for Congress to take a closer look.

And yes, look out for race-card-playing in 3…2…1…
