WATCH: Ohio ex-trooper flirts with apparently drunk driver — and then he stalks her on Facebook

Published

on

Newly released video and Facebook messages show a former Ohio state trooper trying to coerce women into sex during traffic stops and then creeping them out by contacting them through social media.

Bryan Lee pleaded guilty last year in federal court to four counts of violating the civil rights of female motorists and one count of engaging in cyber stalking after admitting that he offered to drop criminal charges or traffic citations against women in exchange for sex.

Lee, a seven-year veteran, resigned at the start of an investigation that was launched during a routine review of his dashboard camera recordings, which revealed inappropriate conduct with a female driver and passenger he stopped for a traffic violation.

Dashboard camera video released this week from a September 2013 traffic stop shows Lee flirting with a woman who appears to be driving drunk and her passenger, who offers to flash her breasts at the trooper, reported WBNS-TV.

“We’ll play this game,” the passenger says in the recording, which launched the investigation after the video was randomly selected for a routine review.

Lee tells the woman they can play that game after he turns off his camera, and the former trooper repeatedly cuts off the audio microphone on his uniform during the 30-minute traffic stop.

The ex-trooper told the driver, who cut him off prior to the traffic stop, that he can smell alcohol on her breath, but he allows her to drive off without being charged.

Lee tracked the woman down the following day on Facebook and began sending her messages over the next two months, saying that he had seen her at a local fair and describes what she had been wearing.

“OK. I don’t take hints very well,” Lee wrote. “Last thing I remember you were flirting with me now you aren’t talking. Want me to leave you alone just respond and say so.”

The woman rarely responded to the messages, and she tells Lee at one point that she found his repeated attempts to contact her “creepy.”

Another woman told investigators that she had sex with Lee in his patrol car at least twice, and another woman who was found to be in possession of heroin was allowed to escape charges after she showed the former trooper her breasts.

Additional records released Monday as part of a records request showed Lee advertised at least twice on Craigslist seeking women for “traffic stop sex.”

Lee, who is married with three children, was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison.

Nightmare scenario: Trump could lose by 5 million votes — but still win re-election by one electoral vote

Published

on

President Donald Trump could potentially win re-election next year by a single electoral vote.

In that nightmare scenario for Democrats, the president could lose the popular vote -- again -- but still narrowly eke out an electoral win by holding onto four states he carried in 2016, reported Axios.

Even if Democrats flip Michigan and Pennsylvania, increase their vote totals in California and come close to winning Texas -- which could give them 5 million more votes than Trump -- their candidate could still lose if Trump narrowly wins Arizona, Florida, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

Hope Hicks’ latest obstruction just gave the Democrats a major weapon: report

Published

on

Hope Hicks didn't provide much information for Democrats in her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee -- but she may have cracked the stone wall the White House has built around former staffers.

President Donald Trump's former communications director -- and perhaps his most trusted aide outside his family -- claimed blanket immunity throughout her closed-door testimony, but Hicks still gave Democrats something in their legal battle against the White House, argued Margaret Carlson for The Daily Beast.

A number of Democrats running for president are kind of weird about food

Published

on

The New York Times has posted a series of short videos of the Democratic candidates for president answering important questions, like what they propose to do about our broken health care system and just how crooked Donald Trump is. Because campaign coverage demands candidates be allowed “human” (debatable!) moments, the Times also asked the participating candidates about their go-to comfort foods on the campaign trail.
