BUSTED! Florida AG Pam Bondi made up claim about ‘rainbow-hands people’ on her website

Published

on

Despite what she told Anderson Cooper on Tuesday afternoon, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s website shows no immediate signs of support toward LGBT communities, Politico reported.

Bondi first made the claim during an interview with the CNN host concerning her anti-LGBT politics prior to the mass shooting attack at an Orlando nightclub on Saturday night.

“I will say I have never really seen you talk about gays and lesbians and transgender people in a positive way until now,” Cooper said. “I read your Twitter history for a last year and you were tweeting about, you know, National Dog Month and National Shelter dog appreciation day or adopt a shelter dog day. It is Gay Pride Month. You never even tweeted about Gay Pride Month.”

“Well actually, if you look at my website now, we have hands clasped together, all different-colored, rainbow-hands people,” Bondi replied.

But Politico published a screenshot of Bondi’s website failing to show even a rainbow, let alone “rainbow-hands people,” as seen below:

Likewise, PamBondi.com also does not depict any rainbows, as seen here:

Neither is there any pro-LGBT imagery on a Facebook page the state Republican Party created to highlight Bondi, but the page’s final post does show her thoughts on another shooting — and at least two pointed responses:

Prosecutors debunk right-wing conspiracy theory in new legal smackdown of Roger Stone

Published

on

Federal prosecutors debunked a conspiracy theory pushed by the far-right in a new legal brief filed on Thursday.

Longtine Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone had argued federal investigators relied upon a report from the cyber research firm Crowdstrike to conclude that Russia had hacked the Democratic National Committee.

That contention, according to federal prosecutors, is "incorrect."

"While the prosecutors did not go into detail, they noted that the investigators gathered evidence of the Russians’ involvement independently, which led to the indictment last year of 12 Russian military officials in connection with the DNC hack," Politico reported.

‘Call the mall cops!’ Roy Moore roasted after saying he’ll make ‘more personal contact with people’ in Senate run

Published

on

Roy Moore, the far-right politician who infamously lost an Alabama Senate race in 2017 after allegations emerged about him molesting teenage girls, announced on Thursday that he was going to once again run for office in 2020.

While touting his potential rematch with Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), Moore was asked by a reporter what he will do differently this time around.

"I would like to make more personal contact with people," Moore responded.

Given that Moore's history of "personal contact" with underage women was what cost him the 2017 Senate race -- and even allegedly got him banned from a shopping mall that grew weary of his regular efforts to pick up teen girls -- Moore was quickly buried in ridicule on Twitter.

There is no 'real story but .... Sometimes in life, you just know, it's time to move on. I don't feel I fit well with the Sinclair News model."
