On July 16, 2020 Gerald G. Lundergan, 73, of Lexington, Kentucky, was sentenced to 21 months in prison, to be followed by two years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a fine of $150,000. Co-defendant Dale C. Emmons, 67, of Richmond, Kentucky, was sentenced to three years probation, with nine months served in a halfway house, and ordered to pay a fine of $50,000. The defendants were sentenced before the Honorable Gregory F. Van Tatenhove of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky.
Gerald G. Lundergan was found guilty of orchestrating a multi-year scheme to funnel more than $200,000 in secret, unlawful corporate contributions into a campaign for United States Senate and for causing the concealment of those contributions from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
On Sept. 12, 2019, following a five-week trial, a jury convicted Lundergan of one count of conspiracy, one count of making corporate campaign contributions, four counts of causing the submission of false statements to the FEC and four counts of causing the falsification of documents with the intent to obstruct and impede a matter within the FEC’s jurisdiction.
“Kentuckians place a great deal of trust in the political process. Regardless of the perpetrator’s position or status, when that trust is broken by corrupt individuals, law enforcement has a duty to protect the people’s interests. Today’s sentence demonstrates that no one is above the law and we will rigorously pursue anyone who tries to undermine the strength of our democracy.” said Special Agent in Charge Robert Brown, FBI Louisville Field Office.
“Former President Bill Clinton sent a letter praising Jerry Lundergan. So did University of Kentucky men’s basketball Coach John Calipari.” as reported by MSN.com
It appears as if the Clinton influence machine has lost it’s luster and influence. Are they no longer “above the law”? Is the Swamp finally being drained? Could this by why main stream media wants you to focus on “Black Lives Matter” instead of what is really going on in America?
