- A yearbook page from the medical school that the current governor attended showed two people in a picture, one with blackface on and one dressed as a KKK member along with the designation of the governor at that time as “Coonman,” certainly a derogatory phrase relative to African-Americans.
- The governor first apologized, claiming he was in the photo, and then denied he was in the photo.
- A woman came forward to accuse the lieutenant governor of sexual assaulting her years ago.
- To that accusation the lieutenant, in a closed door meeting, allegedly said “F*** that b****!”
- The attorney general, after calling for the governor to resign, admitted that he had used black face back in college.
- A December 17, 2018 Washington Free Beacon article by Cameron Cawthorne discussed the latest and worst ethics violators as identified by the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT).
- Two Democratic Presidential candidates, Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, made the list.
- Besides developing the ist, FACT actually filed a complaint with the Senate Ethics Committee against these two for “improperly soliciting campaign donations” as a result of the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings.
- FACT made the case that the two of them violated the prohibition of “promising an official action or legislative work while directly asking for campaign cash.”
- According to the Senate Ethics Manual, a Senator: “”should never use the prestige or influence of a position in the Senate for personal gain . . . . This provision was intended ‘as a broad prohibition against members, officers or employees deriving financial benefit, directly or indirectly, from the use of their official position.'" Moreover, Senators are to act based upon merit, not on partisan affiliation or for campaign contributions.”
- Former Senator Bill Nelson was also slammed by FACT by disclosing classified information about Russian election meddling.
- Apparently, a group of black politicians from the state of New York set up a charity that was supposed to funnel funds and support to needy school kids.
- Nice idea but apparently despite holding a bunch of fancy affairs and good times, the charity ended up donating zero dollars to any needy kid according to a year end investigation of the charity.
- According to the New York Post, the group of Democrats spent thousands of dollars on their annual fundraising event, “Caucus Weekend,” including spending on limos, well known entertainers and rappers, and high profile public speakers, a speaker list that included Hillary Clinton, a speaker that you know did not come cheaply.
- Sponsors were charged upwards of $50,000 to join the partying, with the money supposedly to be spent on needy kids.
- The group also held a high end black tie event that had the theme of “changing lives, one scholarship at a time.”
- Which would have been wonderful if they had actually handed out a scholarship or two but according to the article: “But in the last two years there has been no cash for scholarships, according to two sources — a former lawmaker, and a community organizer who has relied on the money for needy students since just after the group was founded in 1985.”
- Tax filings verify these allegations since in the fiscal year 2015-2016, tax papers show that the group collecting more than half a million dollars in donations and gave out zero scholarships.
- But the politicians did spend $128,000 to feed themselves during “Caucus Weekend,” they spent $36,000 on music, and $59,494 on “equipment rental” for that event.
