DALLAS (AP) — Federal prosecutors say Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway accepted more than $450,000 in kickbacks and bribes, in part through gambling money, trips to Las Vegas and elsewhere, and a phony consulting agreement.

Court documents filed Thursday show Caraway, the second highest-ranking elected official in Dallas, has pleaded guilty to wire fraud and tax evasion.

Federal prosecutors say Caraway accepted bribes in return for taking action to benefit a company that puts cameras on school buses.

They say he received bribes through checks, which he cashed at liquor stores and pawn shops.

U.S Attorney Erin Nealy Cox announced Thursday that Caraway has resigned from the city council.

Caraway’s attorney, Michael Payma, says the court documents speak for themselves. He says Caraway must still be sentenced and declined to comment further.

    When will Black politicians learn
    they can’t play by the same rules
    as whites just because they got
    their foot in the door? You have to
    know you’re held to a different
    expectation than the whites. You’re
    expected to do just what you did so
    they can be justified for keeping us
    out of the loop. Just look at what
    you have done for those brothas com-
    ing behind you.smdh

    Stupid. In a position to help people and do something positive, but succumbs to greed. If you have a scheme going with another person; it’s just a matter of time before the sunlight disinfects your rotten deeds. Big Idiot!
