Ed Ahmad brings in Politicos into the net – video

January 4, 2013 – Capitol News video

The Ed Ahmad investigation was bound to go this way. Follow the money into the politicians’ purses. Now the NYPOST is reporting, that a former New York State Senator of Guyanese heritage, John Sampson, may be under investigation for his links to the indicted mortgage fraud accused Ed Ahmad. Ahmad was a donor to Sampson’s political work in New York State. The report is also claiming that the inquiry into Sampson is focusing on Sampson’s campaign fund-raising and stems from a broader federal probe into Queens Democratic Congressman, Gregory Meeks.

Edul Ahmad is the common link between Meeks and Sampson. Ahmad was embroiled in a congressional ethics probe for giving Meeks a secret $40,000 loan believed to have been a gift.

But it is not only to NY State politicians to whom Ahmad has been linked. The Guyanese mortgage and real estate dealer admitted in court documents that he is a close friend of former President of Guyana, Bharrat Jagdeo. There has been no local probe of Jagdeo’s dealings with Ahmad and no official confirmation of anything untoward about the relationship although, the same court documents indicated that the former President received tons of building supplies from Ahmad. The man uses the former PPP Mirror complex in Industrial site here in Georgetown and benefited from real estate deals in Guyana.

Ahmad pleaded guilty in October in the multi-million mortgage-fraud scheme. He is awaiting sentencing in New York.

His sentencing date has not been scheduled and the defendant is now cooperating with the Feds.

Ahmad faces more than 10 years in prison for submitting bogus information on mortgage applications to lenders and using straw buyers to hide his role in the scam.

He also faces more than $15 million in fines and restitution.

    Life imprisonment should be the jail sentence not 10 years + the fine of $15,000,000. there were other Guyanese involved in Life Insurance Fraud or scams in the USA and would then have the Insurees murdered with them as the benificiaries. Do these people believe that crime pays. They are all Criminal Bandits trying to get rich quickly and embarrassing the Guyanese Nation.

    Corruption, greed, and affiliations, whether here in the U.S.A or internationally, seem to be, and have become, the instruments with which humans are engulfed with at all times. Money and acquisitions dominate the pysch to the extent that the dollar fuels and propels humans into submission to undesirable behavior- theft- everywhere. More troubling but not surprising in Guyana, as depicted by GHK Lall in his book, Guyana: A National Cesspool of Greed, Duplicity & Corruption, the so-called faithful are also major participants in the greed feast. And, as digusting as it may appear, followers within the clergy would amplify Ecclesiastes 10: 19 into the mix of 5:10 to rationalize and justify such actions in pursuit of money.

    Altruism continues to be the least of all considerations in contemporary societies while universal selfishness discards Thomas Jefferson’s “Equal rights for all, special privileges for none”
