FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DETROIT STATE REP LINKED TO FBI CORRUPTION INVESTIGATION
DETROIT, MI (October 30, 2016) – Career criminal and current democratic State Representative Brian Banks has accepted money from Rizzo Environmental Services while the company is at the center of a public corruption investigation by the FBI.
Banks’ leadership PAC “Bank on Banks for Michigan,” accepted a $1,000.00 contribution from Rizzo Environmental Services PAC on October 3, 2016 according to campaign finance documents.
“Rep. Banks is a career criminal, albeit a really bad one that gets caught often, and has proven extremely ineffective in lansing. People don’t give money to Banks because he is a good lawmaker, special interests always expect something in return from Rep. Banks. As demonstrated by his silence on the issues facing the Detroit Medical Center, Banks is constantly putting the needs of special interests ahead of the needs of the people,” said William Broman, Republican candidate for State Representative in District 1.
Broman continued, “Voters in District 1 are tired of Banks constant nefarious behavior, and his assumption that he can win without campaigning has angered many neighbors that I have spoken to throughout the district, but particularly in Detroit. Voters I talk to are happy to have a better choice on November 8.”
Other candidates for office including Republican Congresswoman Candice Miller returned all campaign contributions connected to Rizzo as soon as the news broke of the FBI investigation.
Banks’ trial for his current felony charges is scheduled to for February 2017 in Wayne County Circuit Court.
