Corruption Abounds: St. Louis County Executive to Resign Following Indictment

Last year, it was Missouri’s (now former) Governor, Eric Greitens, who was embroiled in scandal and legal battles and ultimately resigned. The fallout from that continues as I reported last month with Kim Gardner, the St. Louis City Prosecutor who led the charge to take him down, facing her own allegations of malfeasance.

Now comes news that St. Louis County Executive, Steve Stenger, is resigning amid indictments for bribery and mail fraud. As the Post Dispatch reports:

CLAYTON • St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger, a target of a U.S. government investigation into political favors traded for campaign contributions, was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday on charges of bribery, mail fraud and theft of honest services.

….

In a copy of the indictment unsealed on Monday, prosecutors said that from October 2014 to Dec. 31, 2018, “Stenger and various individuals and companies schemed to defraud and deprive the citizens of St. Louis County of their right to his honest and faithful services, and the honest and faithful services of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership’s Chief Executive Officer, through bribery and the concealment of material information.”

Stenger, they said, sought and accepted “campaign contributions from individuals and their companies in exchange for favorable official action, and for individuals and their companies to enrich themselves and their companies by secretly obtaining favorable action for themselves and for their companies, through corrupt means.”

Stenger ensured that a campaign donor, John Rallo, and his company, Cardinal Insurance, got insurance contracts from the county in 2015 and 2016, and a 2016 consulting contract through the St. Louis County Port Authority, prosecutors said.

Stenger also helped a Rallo company, Wellston Holdings, LLC, obtain options to purchase two properties in Wellston, Missouri which were held by the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority.

Per KMOV TV, Stenger is submitting his resignation.

Prosecutors said it stems from an overall scheme to deprive the citizens of St. Louis County of honest services through a bribery scheme.

If convicted, each charge carries a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Late last month, St. Louis County was served a subpoena for federal investigation into Stenger’s administration. The subpoena commanded the county to produce all text communications, notes and phone records between the county executive Steve Stenger, senior staff and current and former county employees regarding county contracts.

For those unfamiliar with the geopolitics of St. Louis, St. Louis County and the City of St. Louis are two separate jurisdictions/governmental entities. The City proper is its own county, governed by a Mayor (Lyda Krewson) and a Board of Aldermen. St. Louis County rings the City (well, semi-rings – the Mississippi River serves as its eastern border) to the north, west, and south. The County is governed by a County Executive (Stenger) and a Council.

In fact, just to add a wrinkle to things, there’s been a push of late by an organization called “Better Together” to unify St. Louis City and St. Louis County.  The initial proposal included a provision that the current County Executive would essentially serve as the unelected mayor of the new, unified entity until the 2024 election. Once the subpoenas started flying, that notion was scrapped.

With Stenger resigning, the question then becomes who will take his place? There is no vice or lieutenant executive. The choice of his replacement may fall to the Council, which currently consists of four Democrats and three Republicans. Oh – did I forget to mention Stenger’s party? He’s a Democrat. (As is Kim Gardner. As was Eric Greitens until milliseconds before he announced his run for Governor – then he became a Republican.) Stenger will undoubtedly be replaced by a Democrat — maybe one of the current Council members.

In the meantime, St. Louisans have to be wondering if it’s possible to find some non-corrupt leaders to elect? Sure would be nice.

This is a serious question given the rules perpetrated by the left in this country, i.e. that if you even breath a position that some rando maniac decides to share, you are directly responsible for their actions.

Immediately following the latest synagogue shooting, which happened on Saturday in California and left one dead, Democrats and the media sought to blame those on the mainstream right

This happened on CNN on Sunday.

Look, we’ve always been a violent society. America’s history is founded on violence but the underbelly was generally tamped down. We got some with McCarthy, we got some of it with George Wallace, but this era we’re in with Donald Trump, it’s like the Gates of Hell have been opened and these people get a pass to come on out and do it in public.

On the same show, Brian Stelter blamed the shooting on “right wing message boards,” despite the fact that 8chan is in noway a right wing message board. It’s full of anonymous trolls, none of which proclaim a coherent ideology, much less a traditional conservative, right wing one.

On ABC, Matthew Dowd suggested that Donald Trump “gave permission” to the shooter with his rhetoric somehow.

After a quick detour to push gun control, Dowd demanded that President Trump “look in the mirror and understand that the rhetoric, the words he uses in all of this inflame a big part of what’s going on in America, give permission to the most craziest people in America.

There are many more examples out there and this isn’t counting the countless hot takes on Twitter.

There’s a problem though. The shooter hated Donald Trump, conservatives, and anyone who supports Israel. Here are a few quotes from his manifesto, which I’m loathe to share but I think the media reaction demands it.

I am not a useless, spineless coward so no—I am not a conservative. Conservative is a misnomer. They conserve nothing.

And on Trump and Israel.

As for Mr. Trump: “You mean that Zionist, Jew-loving, anti-White, traitorous c*cksucker? Don’t make me laugh,” he said in the manifesto, according to Heavy.com and other news outlets.

Now, take this response by Ilhan Omar as a case study.

Notice the shot at Trump at the end there. That was purposeful and you see it come out in her later tweets.

You know what Ilhan Omar is? She’s an outspoken anti-Zionist who won’t even publicly say that Israel has the right to exist when asked. She continually defends her own blatant anti-Semitism by suggesting she’s only criticizing Israel. She’s also a big supporter of the BDS movement, which specifically targets Israel.

She’s so anti-Zionist that anti-Zionist Orthodox groups lined up to support her after he latest anti-Semitic remarks a few months ago. To be clear, it’s not just Omar, as anti-Zionism is prevalent within the Democratic party and is now seen as a acceptable, mainstream position in left-wing politics.

But if we are going to play by the rules these people have set forth, shouldn’t the Democratic party and anti-Zionists like Omar be held partially responsible for their anti-Israel rhetoric? Every single one of these synagogue shooters cited anti-Zionism and hate for Israel as a primary motivator. Why are there not panels on CNN bemoaning the dangerous rhetoric of Omar and others, who consistently speak in anti-Zionist terms?

To be clear, I’m not a fan of blaming anyone but the shooter. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t be even talking about this because there would not have been a ridiculous push to blame Republicans and Donald Trump for this shooting. That’s not the world we live in though. Given that, I think it’s worth the thought experiment to examine why anti-Zionist, left-wing rhetoric is never blamed when it is far more pervasive within the ideology of these shooters than anything coming from Republicans.

Anti-Zionism is racist garbage. No other nation on earth has to deal with assertions that they have no right to exist. The only reason Israel is subjected to such is because it’s a Jewish state. Omar couldn’t even bring herself to say that Venezuala’s dictatorship was illegitimate, as she criticized the U.S. for giving aid instead. Yet, she has no issue constantly spewing anti-Israel tropes and propaganda. None of that is a coincidence.

Meanwhile, synagogues are being shot up by people with rabidly anti-Zionist views. Do I personally believe that Omar should be blamed because she shares a disgusting viewpoint with the shooter? No, I don’t. She should be condemned on her own terms, but not blamed for this shooting. On the other hand, by her own standards, she should be blamed given her rhetoric. These people should be held to their own rules until they agree to stop using them. Consistency matters.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. Screen grab via ABC 7 Chicago.

On Friday, we learned that the office of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had the boom lowered on it by Cook County Judge Marc Martin. Martin slammed Foxx’s office over what he called their double standards between the Jussie Smollett case and unrelated case where the first time offender/defendant was being treated much differently.

On top of that, the Chicago Sun-Times has reported that Foxx is on the hot seat with yet another judicial legal eagle: Retired appellate judge Sheila O’Brien:

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has been subpoenaed to appear in court as a lawyer seeks the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate Foxx’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case.

Retired appellate judge Sheila O’Brien, who filed the petition for a special prosecutor, also filed a subpoena for Foxx’s top deputy, Joseph Magats, and another document requesting Jussie Smollett appear at the hearing.

O’Brien requested Foxx, Magats and Smollett produce the original documents in the “Empire” actor’s criminal case to “assure” the public “that they have not been altered or destroyed and will not be destroyed throughout this case,” court documents show.

O’Brien warned that she was going to do this in an opinion piece published by the Chicago Tribune on April 1st:

This week, I will petition the courts to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and her mishandling of the Jussie Smollett case. This is exhausting, but it has to be done.

We deserve answers. We deserve open court files. We deserve transparency in every case.

We deserve a state’s attorney who will treat the rich and the poor the same — not someone who will make decisions based upon who calls on the phone about it. Did our state’s attorney really remove herself from this case? We have a right to know.

We deserve a state’s attorney who will ask for full restitution for the money spent on cases — not someone who will waste our tax dollars.

We deserve a state’s attorney who will tell us what is happening — not seal the file so we can’t read it.

O’Brien has a pretty distinguished legal/judicial pedigree, so she’s not some lightweight just throwing accusations out there to see if they’ll stick.

That said, what would be accomplished by appointing a special prosecutor? Hot Air‘s Jazz Shaw speculates:

But still, as much as the whole thing stinks to high heaven and looks completely shady, Foxx was exercising prosecutorial discretion, wasn’t she? Law enforcement investigates, makes arrests and collects evidence, but in the end, it’s the prosecutor’s office that decides whether or not a case is viable. Can they really charge her with anything absent some stunning revelation that she was intentionally conspiring to thwart the law?

As we’ve discussed here in the past, Foxx is an elected official, not an appointed one or regular county employee. Unless she’s convicted of a crime there is no mechanism in place to remove her from office except for the voters to do so at the next election. And she’s clearly not the type to allow embarrassment or shame drive her towards resigning her post. We’ll keep an eye on what Judge O’Brien does with this mess going forward, but it may wind up all being for show.

Jazz doesn’t think Foxx can be shamed out of her office, but I believe she could be, depending on if O’Brien’s attempts at getting a special prosecutor appointed are successful.

Stay tuned.

Hillary’s Advice To 2020 Candidates Is Hilarious (But Not In The Way She Thinks)

Westlake Legal Group hillarys-advice-to-2020-candidates-is-hilarious-but-not-in-the-way-she-thinks Hillary’s Advice To 2020 Candidates Is Hilarious (But Not In The Way She Thinks) Russia putin Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story Abuse of Power 2020 election

The Hill posted a tweet Monday morning, with no indication from whence the video came, wherein Hillary Clinton offers some hilarious advice for (presumably Democratic) 2020 candidates (her second time handing down this wisdom in April).

Haha.

No really, this is pretty funny, but the joke is ironic rather than straightforward. First, it’s hilarious that a woman who lost the presidential race in as embarrassing a fashion as has occurred in recent memory would be offering advice on how to win. Legitimately funny.

Second, perhaps Hillary did run afoul of Putin, but it certainly wasn’t for lack of trying to make him like her (a narrative most Democrats, and likely the lady herself, would very much like to forget).

Here’s just a snippet of a another piece from The Hill, this one from back in February.

As secretary of State, Hillary Clinton worked with Russian leaders, including Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and then-President Dmitri Medvedev, to create U.S. technology partnerships with Moscow’s version of Silicon Valley, a sprawling high-tech campus known as Skolkovo.

Clinton’s handprint was everywhere on the 2009-2010 project, the tip of a diplomatic spear to reboot U.S.-Russian relations after years of hostility prompted by Vladimir Putin’s military action against the former Soviet republic and now U.S. ally Georgia.

A donor to the Clinton Foundation, Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, led the Russian side of the effort, and several American donors to the Clinton charity got involved. Clinton’s State Department facilitated U.S. companies working with the Russian project, and she personally invited Medvedev to visit Silicon Valley.

The collaboration occurred at the exact same time Bill Clinton made his now infamous trip to Russia to pick up a jaw-dropping $500,000 check for a single speech.

The former president’s trip secretly raised eyebrows inside his wife’s State Department, internal emails show.

That’s because he asked permission to meet Vekselberg, the head of Skolkovo, and Arkady Dvorkovich, a senior official of Rosatom, the Russian nuclear giant seeking State’s permission to buy Uranium One, a Canadian company with massive U.S. uranium reserves.

Years later, intelligence documents show, both the Skolkovo and Uranium One projects raised serious security concerns.

Of course, we all now know about another, more recent collaboration between Clinton operatives and Russia, that also failed majestically; although it’s clear the relationship between Russia and Clinton allies was still very strong.

Clinton claims she did not know about Steele’s work. It doesn’t matter. Imagine if Cohen, or another lawyer paid by the Trump campaign and Republican National Committee, had hired a former British spy with campaign money to collect dirt on Clinton from Russian intelligence and foreign ministry officials. Do you think that everyone in Washington would be saying: “There’s no evidence Trump knew, so no big deal — nothing to see here”? Of course not.

The point is, Hillary is implying that she and Putin had a strained relationship and that’s why she lost (go ahead and get comfortable with the idea she will never take responsibility for her own inadequacies). But there’s very little evidence Russia had a problem with Hillary before the election. In fact, they appear to have been working with her allies up until the bitter end.

After two years of trying to prove this narrative at the expense of the taxpayer, exhausting everyone and making the entire country much more bitter about the U.S. electoral process, the joke’s still a live one. It’s just on all of us.

Party ‘Til You’re Blistered: Coachella Sees a Massive Record-Breaking Herpes Epidemic

Westlake Legal Group coachella-crowd-bikinis-shirtless-SCREENSHOT Party ‘Til You’re Blistered: Coachella Sees a Massive Record-Breaking Herpes Epidemic Uncategorized SAN DIEGO los angeles hsv herpes herpalert healthcare Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment coachella valley Coachella California Allow Media Exception

 

 

It seems the attendees of Coachella have gotten into a bit of a pickle.

Possibly from a pickle.

According to the herpes tracking app HerpAlert, there’s a “massive” HSV outbreak in California. Furthermore, the good people at HA believe it’s associated with the Coachella music festival, which started on April 12th and concluded on April 21st.

Toledo’s WTOL 11 explains:

HerpAlert is an app that connects patients who think they may have HSV with physicians for secure, private and fast diagnosis and treatment. It told CBS Los Angeles that it normally deals with 12 cases a day.

However, during the two weekends of the 2019 Coachella festival, the rate spiked to 250 cases a day in the towns surrounding the famed event, KCAL reports.

Over 13 days — beginning with the festival’s first weekend — a total of 1,105 cases of the herp were reported in Coachella Valley as well as neighboring cities San Diego and LA.

That’s a HerpAlert record.

Nicely done, y’all.

HerpAlert spokeswoman Alexandra Harbushka told The Orange County Register that number included people “who came to the platform for a variety of reasons, including to get medication to treat and prevent flares, in addition to those who came to see if they had a new case of cold sores or herpes.”

And:

App users who requested information during Coachella were from the Southern California region, typically where concert-goers are from, she said.

Though a distant second, Coachella has another grand event that puts out an impressive array of ulcers, blisters, cold sores, pain when urinating, and vaginal discharge. As noted by The Daily Wire:

The next largest number of claims in Los Angeles occurred the day of and the day after the Academy Awards, back in February.

Let’s hope the same type of breakout doesn’t happen at this year’s Burning Man. It could spell major trouble for the naked weirdos attending Hug Church in the Orgy Dome.

Many on the Left have a peculiar idea: Someone who doesn’t obey the law against mass murder would be scared to death to break the one about making an unlawful gun purchase.

Perspective: In Utah, the punishment for buying a firearm illegally is up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The state’s legal punishment for murder: death by firing squad.

Which sounds worse?

Noneheless, every time there’s a mass shooting, Democratic politicians and much of the media race to promote laws which will deter those afraid of 10 years’ imprisonment in order to control those who aren’t afraid of the firing squad.

That…what’s that called? Oh yeah — dumb.

Yet, in response to Saturday’s Chabad of Poway shooting in San Diego — in which a 60-year-old woman was killed and three others injured, including an 8-year-old-girl (here) — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reached for old faithful:

“The longer the Senate delays holding a vote on #HR8, the more we put Americans at risk.”

HR8 = Requires a background check for every firearm sale.

As pointed out by RedState’s Elizabeth Vaughn Sunday, the 19-year-old perpetrator of the deadly Passover violence wrote a manifesto which included the following:

“Every Jew young and old has contributed to [mosque attacks in Pittsburgh and New Zealand]. For these crimes they deserve nothing but hell. I will send them there. … Make sure to call me a ‘white supremacist’ and ‘anti-semite’ or whatever bullsh** you spew to spook the normal fags.”

He also called President Trump a “Zionist, Jew-loving, anti-White, traitorous c*cks***er.”

Oh — and he shot up a church and killed an old lady.

Does that sound like the target demographic for HR8?

It did, apparently, to AOC.

Not everyone was impressed:

And then there was this guy, who had an especially great point:

Arsen Ostrovsky wanted to talk about anti-Semitism:

And then the BEST point, which surely won’t be trumpeted by the mainstream media:

Good one, Jason Howerton.

If you haven’t heard, the murderer’s assault was thwarted by an agent of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

And if you haven’t noticed, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a goob (here and here).

Media and Democrats Team Up to Lie About Trump Quoting Ralph Northam’s Infanticide Comments

Up is down, black is white, nothing matters. That’s basically the message we are seeing in response to Donald Trump truthfully describing what VA Gov. Ralph Northam said about killing babies after a botched abortion. This happened at a rally in Wisconsin, which was Trump’s counter to the lowly “nerd prom” that went on at the same time.

Here’s a post we saw repeated over and over in liberal and media circles last night, to the extent that they aren’t the same thing at least.

Yes, Trump is crazy for…quoting Ralph Northam accurately? Wait what?

As I wrote last night, Brian Stelter helped kick off the gaslighting and it’s still currently ongoing.

I could keep going but you get the point.

These people are outright lying about this. Donald Trump’s statement at the rally mirrors Northam’s statement almost exactly. Nothing about what he said is misleading or out of context, much less demonstrably false. Yet, blue-check mark liberals are running around proclaiming it’s Trump who is lying. Welcome to the twilight zone.

The problem for them, though, is that there’s video.

What Northam is describing is infanticide. While some will claim he was only talking about “non-viable” babies, he does not clearly make that distinction when talking about the the “decision” being made. It also ignores the fact that doctors don’t exactly have a perfect track record in predicting viability. The moral, safe thing to do is to let whatever natural events are going to occur, occur. There is no place for killing babies because some doctor isn’t sure what the future quality of life may be.

In reality, what’s happening here is that the media and liberals realize their side has gone absolutely insane when it comes to abortion. They know these kinds of barbaric views do not have popular support. In fact, over 80% of the country opposes late term abortion, much less killing babies after birth. So instead of defending their position, they lie about it. Notice how Sanders tries to shift the debate to protecting a woman’s right to control her body. What does that have to do with the infanticide promoted by Northam? Nothing, but Sanders is deflecting purposely.

Our media are absolute garbage. If we truly had a fourth estate, holding the powerful accountable, they’d be asking Sanders and Omar if they support what Northam supports. Instead, they are allowed to obfuscate and change the subject without ever being called on it. All the while, they know faithful propagandists like Brian Stelter will rush to do their bidding.

In normal issues of politics, this would just be frustrating. In the case of those that support infanticide, this reaches into the realm of being evil.

On Saturday, a 19-year-old armed with an AR-15-type weapon attacked the Chabad of Poway synagogue in San Diego. The loon had written a manifesto prior his the murderous assault, which you can read more about here.

He was chased away partly by a Border Patrol agent, but there was another man who first took it upon himself to stop the crime by any means necessary.

And now 51-year-old Oscar Stewart is telling his story.

The Daily Caller spoke to the veteran who cut a would-be mass murder short.

Right after the assailant’s first shots, Oscar went charging after him. The former Iraq combat soldier started yelling — so loud, in fact, that a priest at a nearby church heard him.

“Get down! You mother******! I’m going to kill you!”

He was going on pure adrenaline:

[Oscar] told The Daily Caller…he doesn’t remember any conscious thought from the moment he heard the gun shots until it was all over — he just acted on instinct to stop the shooter and prevent him from leaving so he couldn’t hurt more people somewhere else. The Iraq combat veteran said his military training kicked in.

And it worked. The shooter got spooked:

“I heard gunshots, and everybody got up and started trying to get out the back door, so I — for whatever reason — I didn’t do that. I ran the other way. I ran towards the gun shots. … I knew I had to be within five feet of this guy so his rifle couldn’t get to me. So I ran immediately toward him, and I yelled as loud as I could. And he was scared. I scared the hell out of him. … Looking back, it was kind of a crazy idea to do, but I did it.”

I might be way off, but I’m imagining Han Solo chasing the stormtroopers in A New Hope:



Oscar ran the teen out of the church:

“When I came around the corner into the lobby area, I saw the individual with a gun, and he fired two rounds. And I yelled at him and I must have yelled very loud, and he looked at me, and I must have had a really mean look on my face or something, because he immediately dropped his weapon and turned and ran. And then I gave chase.”

Enter Hero #2, the Border Patrol agent:

Stewart said he chased him all the way out to his car, and began pounding on it — the shooter had managed to lock himself in. When Stewart saw him reach for a rifle, he punched the side of the car as hard as he could, intending to figure out a way to drag him out of the car — that’s when a Border Patrol agent who attends the synagogue came running out to the parking lot, yelling for Stewart to get down because he had a gun.

Stewart says this man may have saved his life, and pointed to his use of a civilian gun — he was off-duty and was apparently handed the weapon by someone else on the scene — as evidence that gun control isn’t the answer to these kinds of tragedies. “It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun,” he told the Caller.

The BP agent shot up the vehicle, but the shooter got away. The two men reported the license plate number to the police.

Horrifically, 60-year-old Lori Gilbert Kaye had been murdered inside the church (learn more about her in the video here). Oscar says she’s the one who should be praised:

Stewart considers her the real hero. Eyewitnesses said she jumped in front of the rabbi to save his life.

“I don’t know if I consciously made the choice to potentially sacrifice myself,” he added. “But I did. And this lady, she stood and she jumped in front of the shooter and she saved the rabbi’s life. When somebody said I was a hero, I’m like, she was a hero. I just did it instinctively, like an animal. There was no conscious decision. I just did it.”

There are heroes among us. And sometimes, circumstance allows them to leap into action. Perhaps you’re a hero, too, and you don’t yet know; your day has yet to come. For Oscar Stewart and an agent of the U.S. Customs and BorderPatrol, that day came Saturday. Thanks to them.

And to you, in advance.

The Nation’s Aaron Maté is no fan of President Trump. However, long before most of his peers, he understood that Trump did not collude with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election.

Shortly after the lightly redacted copy of the Mueller Report was released, Maté sat down with RT (Russia Today) America’s Chris Hedges to discuss the far left’s inability to accept the report’s findings. This interview was highly recommended to viewers who were having difficulty understanding the report by YouTube.

The Washington Post published an article questioning this recommendation because RT is “funded by the Russian government.” The article states that, “AlgoTransparency, founded by former YouTube engineer Guillaume Chaslot, analyzed the recommendations made by the 1,000 YouTube channels it tracks daily. The group found that 236 of those collectively recommended RT’sOn Contact: Russiagate & Mueller Report w/ Aaron Mate” more than 400,000 times.”

Here is the RT video:

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, who has been one of the most vocal proponents of the conspiracy theory, of course, found it ridiculous that YouTube would tout an RT interview as an information source and took to twitter to share her wisdom.

Maté responded to the misguided Maddow by citing twenty occasions in the last two years when she clearly went way over the top with her anti-Trump rhetoric. Here are those tweets. Enjoy!

It Sure Looks Like AOC Broke Campaign Finance Law With Her Latest Stunt

She’s really not good at this whole campaign finance thing. Questions have already been raised about how her campaign was funded, her connection to the Justice Democrats group, and whether she was funneling money illegally to her boyfriend for supposed consulting work. Well, there’s apparently more to critique about her campaign’s use of money.

Recently, the freshest of the fresh faces in Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, held a 5k “Family fun run” in which she was claiming to raise money to support her Green New Deal.

The issue is that she was actually just shoveling all the cash into her campaign coffers.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez held a 5k in Queens Saturday that she billed as “a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the Saturday following Earth Day.”

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign coffers.

“We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together,” the freshman Democrat told the participants before they set off.

While the misleading nature of the event is bad enough, that’s actually not the biggest issue.

It turns out that parents were forced to pay $20 for their children to participate in a 1K run separate from the main 5K. That’s an issue because campaign finance law says that it’s illegal to donate money to a political campaign in the name of a child. Yet, that’s exactly what went on as kids were made to register under their name and pay money for the run.

Even kids as young as 3 became unknowing political donors — ponying up $20 fees to join a kids’ 1k.

But by fudging the fact that those fees were actually campaign contributions, AOC may have enticed constituents into inadvertently breaking federal election laws.

Parents, for example, can’t contribute their own funds in a child’s name.

Oops.

Of course, being that AOC is a Democrat, nothing will happen here. There won’t be threats from the SDNY bearing down on her nor will she likely even be fined. It’s good to be the queen I guess, as long as you belong to the right political party at least.

In the end, what this really shows is just how hypocritical AOC is. She preaches the evils of money in politics, but she’s nothing but your typical sleazeball politician when it comes to how she raises and handles money for herself. If the media weren’t so busy worshiping the ground she walks on, they might try looking into some of this stuff. It could prove fruitful to an actual journalist willing to do their job.
