Fattah Jr. Convicted on Fraud Charges

Fattah-Jr‘Chip’ Fattah Jr., son of Pennsylvania Congressmen Chaka Fattah, was convicted on Thursday of bank and tax fraud charges.

Fattah is currently facing over four years in prison but plans to appeal this conviction and has unwavering confidence that it will be overturned.

“There isn’t going to be any apologizing,” he said. “Every lawyer I know says I’m going to win this case on appeal.”

Throughout the course of the trial, Fattah was painted as a con artist who cheated banks, his own clients, and taxpayers out of thousands of dollars for his own benefit.

Fattah represented himself in the trial and faced a jury of eight men and four women.

Congressmen Fattah also has an upcoming trial in May at which he will also face 29 separate charges of federal corruption based on allegations that he misused federal grants, charitable gifts, and campaign donations. Despite the scandal surrounding the family, he insists that they will not “cower in a corner somewhere.”

In the end, the jury found the evidence against Fattah Jr. “overwhelming.” Government witnesses testified that Fattah grossly inflated the money he was making to secure the loans and then spent the cash on himself.

    What a dope! Represented himself in court. No wonder he was convicted! That’s why God made lawyers sonny! That’ll teach ya! Good luck on overturning your conviction. You and your daddy can be prison penpals!

    People are just jealous of a successful business man doing his hustle. Just because I run the game doesn’t mean I broke the rules. #I#like#nice#things

    Sad news, don’t worry. Not only will Kane keep creating more drama and insanity, but we’ll have more crooked Democrats under arrest in no time. It’s just been that kind of year in PA. And Diano and I will support them wholeheartedly!

    This is really hitting me hard. I don’t know what will get me out of bed in the morning now that I don’t have his trial to look forward to.

    Oh. Wait. At least Kathleen Kane is still dragging her saga through the public eye.
