In the least shocking news ever, a disgraced former State Senator from Milton named Brian Joyce was arrested today:
A high-ranking lawmaker in Massachusetts has been arrested and charged in a 113-count indictment of running his State Senator office as a “criminal enterprise” that netted him $1 million in kickbacks and bribes, federal prosecutors announced today. Brian Joyce, 55, a former Democratic assistant majority leader in the Massachusetts State House was led out of his home in the tony town of Westport shortly before sunrise this morning, said FBI Special Agent in Charge for Boston Hank Shaw, who said the former senator “was greedy, plain and simple.” The 102-page indictment charges Joyce with racketeering, extortion, honest services fraud, money laundering, conspiracy to defraud the IRS and other charges
His arrest came after a two-year investigation that remains ongoing, said Acting United States Attorney William Weinreb, who would not comment on whether other Massachusetts lawmakers could be implicated in the various schemes Joyce ran on Beacon Hill.
“Brian Joyce represented over 100,000 Massachusetts citizens in the state legislator,’’ Weinreb told reporters. “He had a duty to serve them honestly. And he violated that duty by accepting bribes and kickbacks in exchange for his official action.
Joyce, Weinreb added, “ran his Senate office as a criminal enterprise.”
Joyce is accused of accepting “hundreds of pounds” of Dunkin Donuts coffee in exchange for helping a franchise owner navigate the permitting process with pressure on town administrators and state house official actions. He also used his office to help an insurance company who paid him with a free Jeep and wrote legislation to help a Philadelphia based solar energy company.
Prosecutors said Joyce used his law practice, which he ran while working as a full-time legislator, to launder the proceeds of his schemes by “falsely characterizing the bribe and kickback payments as legal referral fees,” and lied to the state Ethics Commission about the payments.
Joyce is also accused of orchestrating a shady deal with a developer to take over the development of properties at the site of the historic Milton Women’s Club after it fell into disrepair. The unnamed developer hid Joyce’s financial interests in the project by telling the town planning board that the senator was “trying to help out the woman’s club,” as a lawmaker who helps “people in the town.” For his work, prosecutors said, Joyce received a new Jeep from the developer, who then set out to build new homes on the lucrative lot.
Joyce is expected to appear in a Worcester federal courtroom this afternoon. The nine-term senator did not seek reelection after the FBI raided his Canton law office last year. Weinreb did not rule out the possibility other lawmakers could be part of Joyce’s stream of illegal activity telling reporters today that the investigation is far from over.
He accepted bribes in the form of 500 pounds of Dunkin Donuts coffee. It simply does’t get any more Masshole that.
We’ve been following this story for the past couple years. This guy might the biggest con-artist we’ve ever seen. And it’s plainly obvious based solely on his physical appearance:
You cant. Seriously, try to stick that chest out a little more Brian. We’re all very impressed. Do you lift weights or something?
This is the culmination of a two year investigation into a whole bunch of other red flags:
The search follows a series of reports that have kept the nine-term Milton Democrat in the spotlight on Beacon Hill and in the media – the cut-rate price he paid for expensive sunglasses for fellow senators, his use of campaign committee money for one of his children’s graduation party, and years of free dry-cleaning service he got from a Randolph businessman.
He was getting his fellow senators designer sunglasses that cost $200 each, but yet he was only paying $50. He threw his kid a huge birthday party using his campaign funds. And of course he’d been selling his votes for free dry cleaning in Randolph as well, while claiming that the dry cleaning guy got “legal services” from him.
Nevertheless, he was always the victim, and his idiotic supporters backed him up. You gotta see this guy’s Facebook page to understand just how much of a con-artist he really is. He has an excuse for everything:
And he’s ALWAYS the victim.
Of course he kept his job as a lawyer on top of being a full time State Senator, because he needed one to make money off the other. He was accepting all this bribe money for favorable votes and influence for special interest groups, and he needed to explain what it was for. Simple solution – legal advice.
In reality no one should be able to hold another job like this if they’re a State Senator. Being an elected official gives you a pension, a per diem account, and a generous salary which they just voted to increase by 40%!! You don’t need another job, and you shouldn’t have time for another job. If being a State Senator isn’t enough for you, then don’t be a State Senator.
But making millions of dollars illegally made it possible to live in a house like this in Milton:
One of the most expensive towns to live in in Massachusetts.
The FBI has been investigating him for two years now, and he announced in 2016, right after they raided his law office in Canton, that he wouldn’t be seeking reelection.
Now look at all these idiots who blindly voted for this criminal because he had a big ol capital D next to his name on the ballot:
He’s playing the victim!! Sorry he had to go through all of this? Witch hunt? He’s literally posting shit so that people will feel sorry for him because he knows just how STUPID the people are who he represents. All of these people should be thoroughly embarrassed:
If you know any of these people feel free to point and laugh at them. They made fools of themselves by standing behind this human garbage because he shook their hand and gave them a flower at the Memorial Day parade.
It wasn’t just his constituents that backed him either. It was his colleagues on Beacon Hill:
“Senator Joyce has served the constituents of his district for more than 20 years,” Senate President Stanley Rosenberg, D-Amherst, said in a statement.
No. Senator Joyce served himself and special interest groups that had enough money to bribe him for 20 years. Of course this is coming from disgraced former Senate President Stanley Rosenberg, whose husband has been offering sexual favors to other men in exchange for influence with his husband on Beacon Hill. You’d have to be an idiot to think that Stan didn’t know about any of this.
They’re all crooks people. Ryan Joyce is just the most obvious douchenugget in the punch bowl.
