Daughter of Koch-connected socialites gets busted for cash burglary

Published

on

The daughter of two wealthy New York socialites has been arrested for burglarizing businesses in Camden, Maine.

Talicia Martins, 21, was arrested along with her alleged accomplice Jacob Flanagan, 20, for breaking into and stealing from the Smoothie Shack, Francine Bistro and Camden Cone. She was charged with burglary and felony theft late last week. Flanagan was charged with three counts of both burglary and felony theft.

Martins is the daughter of Darci Kistler, former principal dancer for the New York City Ballet, and Peter Martins, ballet master of New York City Ballet, according to the Bangor Daily News.

As Bangor Daily News pointed out, Martins authored an article for Teen Vogue in 2015 in which she talked about visiting “Iceland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Croatia, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Spain, and Greece” before starting college.

The “internet is littered with photos of the girl at red carpet events around the world,” the website added.

A 2009 photo from Getty Images shows her posing with David Koch, a wealthy industrialist who bankrolls conservative causes and funds the David H. Koch Theater in New York.

Police said more than $1,000 was stolen from the three businesses.

The duo were apprehended after police posted surveillance videos and then received anonymous tips about the incident.

Both Martins and Flanagan have been released on $1,500 bail.

2020 Election

Trump’s absurd anti-Semitic rants are the new normal: Threats and blackmail are all he has left

Published

Predicting that Donald Trump will run the most negative campaign in living memory in 2020 does not, of course, take great analytical genius. It feels wrong to use words like "plan" or "strategy," of course, as Trump is merely a bundle of impulses, all of them ugly and mean-spirited. But there can be no doubt that Trump's main campaign strategy will be to blanket the airwaves and social media with spitballing insults and attacks on the Democratic candidate, with an eye towards demoralizing the left, driving down voter turnout and winning as he did in 2016, by the skin of his teeth.

on

People are scratching their heads in the wake of President Trump's comments to reporters on the White House South Lawn this morning, and that includes CNN anchor Brianna Keilar.

Keiler described Trump's exchange with reporters as a "head-spinning question-and-answer session on a number of issues" that included "many falsehoods, and frankly, a lot of things that didn't even make sense."

Keiler pointed out Trump's multiple flip-flops on the subject of background checks for firearms, first supporting the process, then caving after speaking with the NRA's Wayne LaPierre -- only to tell reporters this morning that he supports them without providing any policy specifics.
