Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl Indicted AGAIN Over Voter Intimidation
Tue, 27 Oct 2020 13:07:53 -0400
Conservative operatives Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman have been indicted in Ohio, once more over a racist robocall aimed at minority voters.Wohl and Burkman, who rose to some level of infamy online for blundering attempts to manufacture sexual assaults allegations against Democratic politicians and other Trump foes, have each been charged in Ohio’s Cuyahoga County with eight counts of telecommunications fraud and seven counts of bribery, a charge that includes attempts to convince people not to cast ballots. The indictment only adds to the growing mountain of criminal and civil problems facing the notorious pro-Trump pair.In late August, a robocall that claimed to come from Wohl and Burkman warned voters not to use mail-in ballots, falsely claiming that the ballot information would be used to enforce vaccine mandates and collect on credit card debts. In the call, which was sent to 67,000 voters in the Midwest, according to prosecutors, a Black woman warned potential voters not to send in mail-in ballots or risk being fooled by “the man.”“The right to vote is the most fundamental component of our nation’s democracy,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley said in a statement. “These individuals clearly infringed upon that right in a blatant attempt to suppress votes and undermine the integrity of this election These actions will not be tolerated.”> Jack Burkman and Jacob Wohl have been indicted in Ohio over an alleged robo-call operation targeting Black voters in Cleveland and East Cleveland, according to a news release from the Cuyahoga County prosecutor's office. pic.twitter.com/OOnfJ9dbQ2> > — Nick Castele (@NickCastele) October 27, 2020Michigan’s attorney general charged Wohl and Burkman in a separate case on Oct. 1 for the same robocall, which was also sent to voters in that state. They have also been sued in New York in a civil lawsuit by people who received the call.Wohl, 22, and Burkman, 54, didn’t respond to an immediate request for comment.The pair have claimed they didn’t arrange the robocall. In the Michigan case, however, prosecutors intend to call as a witness the owner of a robocall company who prosecutors say will testify that his company was used by Burkman and Wohl to send the robocalls. Michigan prosecutors have also claimed they have an email from Wohl arranging the robocall’s scripts.Wohl is also facing felony charges in California over alleged violations of securities laws. The FBI is investigating the pair over the leak of juror questionnaires in the trial of former Trump adviser Roger Stone, according to sealed court documents obtained by The Daily Beast.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Head of Virginia military academy resigns amid report of racist culture
Mon, 26 Oct 2020 15:41:55 -0400

Peggy Noonan is my friend. Here’s why her Kamala Harris comments were wrong.
Mon, 26 Oct 2020 16:36:30 -0400
OPINION: Sophia A. Nelson says while Noonan’s critiques of Harris’ joy was tone-deaf and lacked a true understanding of Black women. Noonan penned a column where she was rightly perceived as treating Sen. Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, disrespectfully by implying that Harris needed to be more serious and sober-minded when she is out on the campaign trail — not dancing, laughing and being what she considered to be inappropriate.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany Is Now Formally Moonlighting as a Trump Campaign Aide
Tue, 27 Oct 2020 13:56:46 -0400
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany appears to have taken on a new gig. In addition to her role as a government employee, she’s now serving as a senior aide on her boss’s reelection campaign.In an appearance on Fox News on Tuesday morning, McEnany was introduced as “Trump 2020 senior advisor and White House press secretary.” A few hours later, Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney introduced McEnany by saying she is “serving now as advisor for the Trump campaign."McEnany’s dual roles for the White House and the Trump reelection campaign immediately set off alarm bells among good government advocates, who said they represent yet another instance of the often blurry lines between the Trump administration and the president’s political operation.“This looks like the latest example of Trump administration officials bending and breaking ethics laws and norms,” said Paul Seamus Ryan, the vice president of litigation for the group Common Cause. “This is unfortunately par for the course for this administration.”Now Kayleigh McEnany Has COVID, Making a Dozen From Rose Garden CeremonyA White House spokesperson said McEnany was not representing the White House during her Fox appearances on Tuesday.“Kayleigh was appearing in her personal capacity as a private citizen,” the spokesperson said.A spokesperson for the Trump campaign confirmed that McEnany is an unpaid advisor, and also said she was appearing on Fox on Tuesday in a personal capacity. The spokesperson said that cable news shows on which she appears “have been instructed not to refer to her with her White House title,” notwithstanding the Fox & Friends introduction on Tuesday that included both her campaign and White House titles.While most of McEnany’s two Fox hits on Tuesday concerned the status of the Trump campaign and the 2020 race, she also weighed in on official administration policy on issues such as COVID relief negotiations with congressional Democrats.“The chances [for a deal] are slim when you have someone like Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House,” McEnany told Varney. “If we’re providing stimulus relief for the American people, it should be just that, for American people, for United States citizens, not a wish-list from the liberal left,” McEnany told Varney.Speaking in front of a backdrop that featured both the White House and the Trump campaign logo, McEnany also rattled off a series of policy proposals that “we offered” in those negotiations.Fox News Reporter Explodes Over Kayleigh McEnany: ‘Stop Blaming the Media, I’m Tired of It!’It’s that sort of blurry line between White House and campaign messaging, and the prospect that taxpayer resources could continue bolstering the president’s reelection effort, that concerns Ryan.“This excerpt is McEnany commenting on federal government policy currently being negotiated by the Trump administration with Congress. This is McEnany doing the work of a [White House] Press Secretary,” he said. “It's permissible for someone who works in the White House to also do campaign work. They just can't mix the two. They can’t try to do the two things simultaneously.”Ryan compared the situation to controversy over illicit politicking by former senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, who used her official Twitter account to share political messages, leading the Office of Special Counsel to recommend her removal over violations of the Hatch Act, which bars the use of taxpayer resources for partisan purposes.Conway brushed off the recriminations with a simple statement: “Blah blah blah.”The Trump White House, and the president himself, have reveled in the frequent criticism they get over their unprecedented uses of taxpayer resources in the service of the president’s reelection. After coming under fire for putting on a political nominating convention on the White House grounds in August, Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh tweeted: “Liberals are more upset about the use of government buildings than they ever were about the use of the FBI to target political opponents.”McEnany’s Fox appearances on Tuesday came about two months after White House attorneys waived ethics rules so that she could meet in her capacity as a government official with employees of the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, both of which previously employed her.The waiver memo is undated, but metadata in the file posted to the White House website indicates it was created on August 26. That was the day of McEnany’s speech at the Republican National Convention. She also spoke at a Trump campaign rally this month.The White House has also waived ethics rules for another staffer, director of advance Bobby Peede, to permit communications with the Trump campaign. According to Federal Election Commission records, the Trump re-elect has made regular payments from December 2019 through early this month to the firm Event Strategies, where Peede served as a partner prior to joining the White House.The largest of those payments, for nearly $100,000, came on August 24, two days before Peede’s waiver memo was created.\-- With reporting by Justin BaragonaKayleigh McEnany Grilled on Trump’s Sudden Embrace of Mail-In VotingRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Turkey's Erdogan says it's time for two-state solution in Cyprus

Mitch McConnell’s Conservative Challenger Gets a Boost... From Dems
Mon, 26 Oct 2020 12:16:52 -0400
In a last-ditch effort to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a deep-pocketed Democratic group has begun airing ads backing the Libertarian candidate in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate contest.A new super PAC called True Kentucky Patriots started buying television and digital ads last week in support of Libertarian Brad Barron, calling him “Kentucky’s true conservative for U.S. Senate,” in the words of one thirty-second spot. “Barron is one hundred percent pro-Second Amendment, one hundred percent pro-life, and one hundred percent pro-term limits. Sorry Mitch, 36 years is too long.”The group is clearly designed to peel off conservative votes from McConnell, who faces a challenge from Democrat Amy McGrath. Federal Election Commission records show that True Kentucky Patriots is affiliated with one of the Senate race’s largest independent spenders, a pro-McGrath group called the Ditch Fund.True Kentucky Patriots also shares a treasurer with the Ditch Fund, and both groups have paid a Democratic firm called Beacon Media to produce and place their respective digital ads.It’s not uncommon for political operatives to attempt to boost third party candidates that they hope will act as spoilers and split an opposing ideological coalition’s votes to the detriment of one major party candidate or the other. But it’s less common for groups doing so to disclose those efforts in publicly available campaign finance filings.True Kentucky Patriots hasn’t been around long enough to reveal any of its donors, and it won’t have to do so until nearly three weeks after election day. But pro-McGrath forces have already attempted to promote Barron’s candidacy through other means. Another anti-McConnell super PAC, Fire Mitch Save America PAC, has sent mailers promoting Barron’s Senate bid.FEC filings also show that Democrats have sought to boost Barron directly. At least five of Barron’s donors have also given to McGrath’s campaign. One of them, a New York-based Microsoft employee, even donated to both McGrath and Barron on the same day.Polling in the Kentucky Senate contest has shown McConnell with a consistent lead, though his margin has varied from as little as five points to as much as twelve. The most recent poll of the race has McConnell with a nine-point lead over McGrath, and just four percent saying they support Barron’s candidacy, meaning the Libertarian likely will not draw enough votes to tilt the election. The race has nonetheless drawn massive investments from both parties. McConnell and McGrath have together spent nearly $115 million, with outside groups dropping another $26 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.Kentucky isn’t the only state where Democrats have attempted to boost a third party spoiler in a tight Senate contest. In South Carolina, Democrat Jaime Harrison’s campaign has run ads ostensibly attacking an obscure Constitution Party candidate by calling him too conservative for the state. It appears to be an effort to encourage support for the more right-wing contender among the state’s more conservative voters—to the detriment of Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.But the most famous would-be spoiler candidate of the 2020 election cycle is Kanye West. A number of Republican operatives have lined up behind his dead-end presidential campaign in an effort to draw votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden in some key battleground states.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
