Oklahoma GOP candidate ‘pulls a Ted Cruz’ and blames staffer for pornography in his campaign finance report

Published

on

A Republican legislative candidate in Oklahoma has become the object of ridicule and scorn after listing bondage pornography on his campaign finance report.

In an August campaign finance filing, Oklahoma City Republican candidate Jason Reese reported a “general expenditure” with the description, “HOTWIFE CHLOE NEEDS TO BE PUNISHED.” The amount listed was $10.05.

“I can assure you, I was as shocked as anyone,” Reese told KOCO News 5. “Absolutely no illicit materials were bought with campaign funds.”

Reese is blaming a staffer for reporting $10.05 worth of bondage pornography, describing it as a copy and paste mistake.

“The problem is, he said he had another browser open at the same time. Something from that browser got moved over to the ethics commission report,” Reese claimed.

The scandal was first reported by The Lost Ogle.

The Lost Ogle successfully predicted that Reese would, “pull a Ted Cruz and blame it all on a staffer.”

“From what I can tell, Jason has all the qualifications you’d look for in an Oklahoma conservative political candidate. He’s a former lawyer for the Oklahoma GOP. He has the support of the local ruling class,” The Lost Ogle explained. “And most importantly, he’s a fan of good old-fashioned BDSM internet pornography!”

Reese is running for Oklahoma state House District 83.

“You gotta expect this sort of thing in politics,” Reese told WTVR News. “I enourage everyone to look at my ethics report. When you look at it, it makes perfect sense.”

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report

Published

on

There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.

But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.

Jon Stewart blasts ‘abomination’ of Rand Paul trying to ‘balance the budget on the backs of’ 9/11 responders

Published

on

On Wednesday's edition of Fox News' "Special Report," comedian and activist Jon Stewart slammed Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for blocking unanimous consent for a bill to support health care for 9/11 first responders.

"Pardon me if I'm not impressed in any way by Rand Paul's fiscal responsibility virtue signaling," said Stewart to anchor Bret Baier, who appeared on the show with first responder and activist John Feal.

He added that Paul's complaint, that the bill was unfunded, rings hollow given that he "added hundreds of billions of dollars to our deficit" with the GOP tax cuts for billionaires. He castigated Paul for trying to "balance the budget on the backs of the 9/11 first responder community."
