ms.johnson; is not only a disgrace to her district but also to her own race. At her age acting like a complete con.. She's a fine example for all the kid's..she should go to jail along with her grandson's.. But I have faith in our government she'll not spend one day behind bars. She might even get re-elected.. Good for DaLLAS & THE DEM'S..

Agreed. Johnson is a disgrace to her race, her position, and to humanity. She just couldn't resist getting that money for her own family! Was too easy. She won't go to jail because she didn't commit a crime against the law - just against decency. And yes, her district will probably elect her again because they vote RACE above all else. Shame on them too.

Fortunately, her opponent is also Black, so that levels the playing field a little. He didn't have a snowball's chance until her unethical behavior grabbed the headlines as well as national TV attention.
