What do you think about Former Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson being sentenced to 7 years in prison for bribery and corruption?

          The corruption would have continued had he not been caught. Justice
          is served and there are a lot more people to check on this issue.

          I think he deserved it because he tried to hide what he was doing. This shows we pretty much can't trust our public officials.

          I feel like he should have been a better role model and leader. It wasn't right to take the bribes because what is done in darkness soon comes to the light. It was inevitable that he was going to get caught and maybe he'll learn now from his mistakes.

          Jack Johnson should have gotten the maximum time for his crimes.

          Jack Johnson was so strict with his standards for his employees when he was County Executive and he was big on furloughs so I think he should have gotten the maximum time for the way he responded to issues
          when he was in office.
