Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.
It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.
White felons need not apply.
The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.
Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.
Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
Portland: Archbishop Leads Prayer and Conducts Exorcism to Rid the City of Satanic Influence
The devil has been busy in Portland over the past few months.
Archbishop of Portland Alexander Sample led a gathering in prayer, a Rosary, and conducted an exorcism over the city last Saturday.
The Catholic archbishop told KOIN that the months of continuous rioting and violence spurred the idea of the exorcism.
Sample further said: “I wasn’t trying to suggest that I think the city of Portland is possessed. It’s not that at all. It’s just a prayer of blessing prayed by the clergy, especially a bishop over a community just asking that all the influences of the Evil One be driven away.”
At one point there were over 100 straight nights of rioting in the city of Portland. Aaron Danielson, a conservative and supporter of Patriot Prayer, was murdered in cold blood on August 29 near a pro-Trump rally. Numerous others, including police officers, were injured amidst the 100+ days of carnage.
Attendees of the archbishop’s prayers and exorcism spoke to Catholic News Service, with one saying that the “anti-religion undertones” of the protests and riots frightened her, and another that “it’s important for people of faith to be seen in public promoting belief and peace.”
As a Catholic myself, I understand the power of prayer and exorcism. They represent two of the most powerful weapons against the devil and his minions. I’m glad to see the archbishop do this for his city.
