BUSTED: Republican charged after winning GOP primary — by spreading opponent’s expunged arrest

Published

Authorities in New Jersey have charged a sitting Republican mayor with winning her GOP primary by illegally spreading information on her opponent.

“Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede and her campaign manager have been charged with publicly releasing an opponent’s years-ago and now expunged arrest by posting it on a campaign blog ahead of the June Republican primary, which she won,” NJ.com reported Tuesday.

“Authorities say Yaede’s campaign manager, Dan Scharfenberger, was the blog’s administrator, and he and Yaede controlled the blog’s content – even though her campaign has said publicly they had no idea who was behind the online site,” the publication reported. “The charges come from an investigation by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, which filed the disorderly person offenses in Hamilton Municipal Court, the office said.”

“It’s vindication for me and my campaign for all the dirt they threw at me during the campaign,” David Henderson, the victim, said.

Yaede is facing Hamilton Council President Jeffrey Martin, a Democrat, in the November general election.

Trump mocked after saying he thought violating the Constitution and profiting from G7 hosting was ‘Good for our country’

Published

on

After tremendous public and private  bipartisan condemnation of his decision to host the 2020 G-7 at his own Miami resort President Donald Trump Saturday night appeared to be laying the groundwork of reversing the unconstitutional and illegal decision.

In an insane series of tweets the president did what he always does: blamed the media for holding his feet to the fire in accurately reporting the consequences of his actions.

“I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms,” Trump tweeted, adding that “each delegation would have its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY!”
