More about that:

Fattah, 59, had been charged with bribery, racketeering, money laundering, bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, and filing false statements as part of a years-long criminal scheme that even included Fattah lobbying President Barack Obama for an appointment for one of his alleged co-conspirators. Fattah was found guilty on all charges.

Fattah could face as much as 20 years in prison on the bribery charges, but it is not yet clear how long a prison term they will seek. Fattah is likely to appeal his conviction.

Well, at least Rep. Fattah’s putting on a happy face:

And why shouldn’t he? It’s not like there haven’t been plenty of other criminal Democratic politicians who get off easy.

Evidently so did the congressman’s son:

Fattah’s son, Chaka Fattah, Jr., is already in prison on bank and tax fraud charges. He is serving a five-year sentence.

Apples, trees … you know the drill.
