Note to my friends


Last week was very rough.

Two black men were needlessly gunned down by police; 5 Dallas police officers were slain by a demented man, and on Friday I had to appear in federal court.

Visiting with friends
My heart is heavy, but my spirit remains unbroken. Being indicted is very scary. Yet my conscience is clear because I’m innocent. I’m not the first black elected official to be persecuted and, sad to say, I won’t be the last.

The most important thing I want you to understand is that an indictment is not a conviction. An indictment is an accusation. Anybody can make an accusation. You’ve heard the prosecutor’s side, but you still have not heard the rest of the story.

In church on Sunday the minister reminded us of this verse from Proverbs 18: “The first one to plead his cause seems right, Until his neighbor comes and examines him.”

I did a lot of praying this weekend and I appreciate all the prayers and well wishes I’ve been receiving. Please keep me in your prayers.

Despite all the heartache my family and I have experienced, I want you to know that I’m still in the fight to provide the representation you deserve in Washington.

God bless you.

  1. Amen, and we most remember this, everything is either ordered or aloud by God who is in control of your life and we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus by the Power of the Holy Ghost, Amen.

    Always praying for you my friend, we love you.
