Cash for Senate seats. “I will make your child a Senator for money,” claims life coach. “How do you think Trump got the job?”
An ex-life coach has been offering wealthy families a seat in the Senate for their children in return for money.
His closing argument was “How do you think Donald Trump got the job?” which sealed the deal for most people.
In a far-reaching FBI investigation, evidence is beginning to emerge that a vast number of Senate seats are filled by people with no experience of politics, communication, leadership, organisation, or the law, and who are only in it for the money, the perks, the free travel, more perks and an easy life. And power.
Louie “Dickie” Ratchet, life coach and political fixer to the rich, made many powerful contacts through his life coaching business and knows which “shakers and movers” are open to “financial persuasion”. It’s also believed he was a close friend of Russian State Hackers, a claim he denies.
Mr Ratchet was discovered by accident during an undercover FBI wiretap sting intended to unearth a Dodgeball-fixing racket. An FBI agent who claimed he couldn’t be named for security reasons said: “If I’d known about this sooner I could’ve got my kid into politics instead of flipping burgers. Don’t quote me on that.”
Mr Ratchet targeted wealthy people with not-so-bright children who wanted to secure a future for them. And possibly with the hope that their children would reciprocate and help their own business and career.
The list includes prominent business names as well as celebrities, TV chefs, soap stars and other minor entertainment personalities who, nevertheless, managed to put together the rumoured seven-figure sums demanded by Mr Ratchet for his services.
TV Chef Antonio Garibaldi said: “I didn’t know it was illegal. It’s how we did things in the old country. He promised to make my son president.”
The number of politicians and Senators Mr Ratchet has already helped into power is unknown but, judging by the current state of the Senate, it was a lot.
The case continues.
