‘F*ck Trump’ truck driver now targeting Texas sheriff who threatened her with arrest

Published

on

A Texas woman took aim at the sheriff who called for her arrest over a profanely anti-Trump message on her truck.

Karen Fonseca actually was arrested on an outstanding warrant last week after Sheriff Troy Nehls called for disorderly conduct charges over the “f*ck Trump” decals on the pickup she and her husband drive.

She added a profane message against Nehls, whom she previously worked with at the Fort Bend County jail, after her arrest related to a 2015 investigation into alleged fraudulent possession or use of identifying information.

“F*ck Trump and f*ck you for voting for him,” the decals read. “F*ck Troy Nehls and f*ck you for voting for him.”

The ACLU of Texas offered to assist Fonseca after the sheriff posted a photo of the truck on Facebook and claimed the prosecutor had approved charges — which the district attorney disputes.

“The change came about today,” Fonseca told KVII-TV. “We had been thinking about it and deciding that Troy Nehls didn’t think twice when he put the Facebook post up and exposed me and my family. We’re getting more positive than negative. I feel it was gone about the wrong way and the sticker is appropriate.”

Fonseca was released from jail Thursday after she was arrested in front of her 6-year-old daughter at her family’s Stafford home.

“I think it’s the sticker,” said husband Mike Fonesca.

Her attorney questioned the sheriff’s Facebook post, which has since been deleted.

“I think it’s ludicrous the sheriff needed to go to Facebook to locate her,” said attorney Brian Middleton. “He has professional detectives under his employment who could have easily found Ms. Fonseca.”

The sheriff, a Republican who is not seeking re-election, slapped at Fonseca after learning about her new message.

“It doesn’t surprise me,” Nehls said. “Her behavior is disgusting.”

In 2019, a college admissions scandal rocked the country. Thus far it has resulted in 53 people being charged with cheating the system, paying for people to take standardized tests and paying their way into schools. Over the 7-year investigation, the FBI uncovered everyone from celebrities to wealthy families for conspiracy to commit felony mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

In response to the scandal, the University of Pennsylvania announced that would revoke the degree of any graduate found to have given false information in an admission application, cheated on an exam or tempered with their records, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported.

Gov. Ron DeSantis still won’t reveal true COID-19 data — so things are probably much worse

Published

Florida reached 213,000 coronavirus cases on Tuesday, as Gov. Ron DeSantis continues to encourage the state to reopen at all costs.

According to CNN's Randi Kaye, the numbers spell "trouble" for the state as it's GOP leaders are opting for a simplistic approach to reopening.

Just in the last 24 hours, they have had more than 1,600 people hospitalized for COVID," she cited. "In the last two weeks, the hospitalization haves gone up 90 percent. The ICU bed demand has gone up 86 percent, and the ventilator usage has gone up 127 percent. The governor is saying he's sending 100 nurses and 47 beds to Jackson Health because they need it so much. But at last check, we've noted that about 56 hospitals around the state have run out of ICU beds, which means they have no space for anyone who needs an ICU bed. This is really critical for Miami-Dade because they make up the 24 percent of the cases throughout the state, so they really need those hospital beds."

Joe Shapiro — the man who took Trump’s SATs for him

Published

on

The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School is being thrust into the spotlight after it was alleged that President Donald Trump was admitted after his sister did his homework for him and a friend named Joe Shapiro took his SATs.

In a new tell-all book by the president's niece, Mary Trump, it was revealed that the Penn grad wasn't quite the "genius" he has claimed to be. He announced he was "first in his class at Wharton," though he never was admitted to the prestigious MBA program at the school and he was never listed on the dean's list the year he graduated, the Penn student newspaper reported in 2017.
