Leaked audio reveals Michigan cops joking about ‘donkey punching’ female employees and calling them ‘c*nts’

Published

on

A lawyer representing a lieutenant who is suing Jackson County Sheriff Steven Rand on Wednesday released a series of audio recordings showing Rand and other officers making crude sexual comments about female county employees.

MLive.com reports that the recordings were made by sheriff’s Lt. Tommy Schuette, who is filing the suit against the sheriff — a man he claims is a “multifaceted bigot.”

Among other things, the recordings show Rand and other officers in the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department calling one female court employee a “c*nt” for not talking with them; making jokes about making a “snuff film” in which they “donkey punch” the employee; and commenting on a prospective female employee at the department having a “phenomenal ass.”

In a voice mail left with an MLive.com reporter, Sheriff Rand said he could not comment extensively about the audio of him and his officers making lewd comments.

“There is not much I can tell you,” he said. “I have not had the opportunity to speak with any legal counsel yet, nor have I seen the full allegations in the lawsuit… It would completely imprudent of me to even make any comment at this time.”

Jackson County itself has denied any allegations of wrongdoing leveled against it in the lawsuit, although it says it is disturbed by the allegations made against Rand.

“The allegations, if true, are absolutely abhorrent and represent conduct that is repugnant to Jackson County’s commitment as clearly set out in its many employment policies and practices,” the county said.

Trump’s hamfisted attempt to wag the dog with Iran unraveled fast

Published

Welcome to another edition of What Fresh Hell?, Raw Story’s roundup of news items that might have become controversies under another regime, but got buried – or were at least under-appreciated – due to the daily firehose of political pratfalls, unhinged tweet storms and other sundry embarrassments coming out of the current White House.

We can’t say with any certainty that Iran wasn’t behind the attacks on two ships in the Gulf of Oman this week, but it is clear that the Trump regime’s account of what happened unraveled very quickly. Shortly after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a video of a small vessel removing something Pompeo said was a mine from the damaged port side of one of the ships, the vessel's owner said that it had actually been struck on its starboard side, above the waterline, by a flying object. If this were in fact an effort to pull a Gulf of Tonkin, then the fact that this was the best dog-wagging they could conjure up would be downright pathetic.

Here is how ABC gave a helping hand to Donald Trump in his bid to be re-elected

Published

on

On Friday morning, some affiliates in ABC News’ digital division posted an article promoting an online “birthday card” for President Donald Trump — who turned 73. The “card” turned out to be linked to a petition website created by Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC). And those ABC affiliates, according to the Daily Beast, helped Trump and the RNC add to their e-mail lists.

“Happy Birthday, Mr. President!,” the content read. “To help him celebrate, the GOP has made him a digital birthday card.”
