GOP candidate in Nevada busted for forging letter from his therapist claiming he isn’t a threat to his kids

Published

on

A Republican candidate for state legislature in Nevada is being held in the South Tower of the Clark County Detention Center on $100,000 cash bail after being arrested on nine charges, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Michael Lee McDonald, 34, allegedly forged a letter from his therapist, adding a sentence declaring he is not a threat to himself or his children.

A Metropolitan Police Department investigation found the letter “was scanned into a computer and the typed word, date and signature was added over the existing entries on the sheet by a computer software program.”

The arrest report notes the added sentence was at an angle to the rest of the text and appeared in a different font size.

McDonald also allegedly lied about having no income when he was employed with an annual salary of $47,500.

All of the charges were linked to a family court dispute.

On his campaign website, McDonald labels himself a “family law reformer” and a “loving father of two amazing kids.”

The GOP candidate also refers to his own parents’ divorce.

“His parents went through a bad divorce when he was 5. His Mother then took him and his two brothers to live on an 80 Acre farm in Missouri,” his campaign website reads. “He only saw his dad a handful of times and it caused much hurt in him and passion to help get the family laws changed!”

“If elected Michael Will do his best to help enact laws for family and criminal law reform especially for equal parenting!” his campaign pledged. “Also, other issues affecting Nevada.”

On Monday, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone sent a letter to House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings, saying Conway would "respectfully decline" the invitation to testify before Congress on her violations of the Hatch Act.

CNN congressional correspondent Manu Raju spoke with Cummings about what comes next.

"Elijah Cummings told me they will subpoena Kellyanne Conway if she doesn’t show up Wednesday for his hearing on the Hatch Act - and 'of course' she’ll be held in contempt if she doesn’t comply with subpoena," Raju explained.

‘Good to know he has a rape type’: Internet scorches Trump for saying E. Jean Carroll isn’t attractive enough to assault

Published

on

President Donald Trump is faced with the fallout from advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's accusation that he forced himself on her in a department store in the 90s. His response, in an interview with the Hill, is to say that he couldn't have done it because "she's not my type."

The callous, misogynistic, and ignorant nature of this response shortly earned the fury of social media:

"Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
