Pras Indicted on Campaign Finance Fraud Charges

Last year Pras from The Fugees was accused of helping Malaysian financier  Jho Low circumvent campaign finance laws to help re elect Barrack Obama [click here if you missed that].

Pras has just been indicted...

From Yahoo
According to an indictment unsealed Friday in Washington, Low transferred $21.6 million to Pras Michel, a musician and film producer, who spread approximately $865,000 among 20 people. These straw donors, in turn, gave the cash to a presidential fundraising committee without indicating it had come from a foreign source. Michel also sent more than $1 million to an independent election committee, prosecutors said.
The charges, against both men, show a wide-ranging effort by the Malaysian financier to win influence in the U.S. In an indictment last year, Low and Michel weren’t charged but were identifiable as co-conspirators trying to influence the Trump administration as the Justice Department investigated the 1MDB scandal.

Big deal the troglodytes been doing this shit for years, and getting away it. Free Pras, his ass should have retained a good obeah bokor to make this shit go away. Hopefully his political friends come through and see he does the minimal time for this bullshit ass "crime" foh wypipo with this nonsense.
