Carole Baskin of ‘Tiger King’ Donated $1000 to North Carolina’s Richard Burr

Suspect campaign contribution?

Published

FEC reports reveal that Carole Baskin, a controversial wildlife conservationist depicted in the documentary series ‘Tiger King,’ made a $1000 donation to North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in February.

Burr has recently endured controversy of his own, being the subject of a purported insider trading scandal. The North Carolina Republican also recently sold a townhouse to a group owned by a donor and lobbyist affiliated with Burr.

Baskin has become a nationally controversial figure as a result of her appearance in the documentary series. The Florida Big Cat Rescue owner was allegedly the target of a murder-for-hire plot on the part of Joe Exotic, an Oklahoma zoo operator she had engaged in a lengthy legal battle with. Exotic was convicted of soliciting a zoo handyman to attempt to kill her and is currently serving a 22-year sentence in federal prison.

Some of her ex-husband’s friends and family members suspect that Baskin played a role in the unexplained disappearance of Don Lewis, who went missing before a supposed trip to Costa Rica.

Baskin speaks at length about her lobbying efforts in support of the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which would federally ban the breeding and private ownership of animals such as tigers and lions. It’s possible that her campaign contributions to Burr stem from her efforts to advance the legislation.

Another animal industry figure depicted at length in Tiger King, Doc Antle, is also a campaign donor to Burr. Antle owns a private zoo in South Carolina and it’s likely his donations to Burr are intended to lobby against the Big Cat Public Safety Act.

In any case, Senator Burr probably won’t be thrilled to find out a four-figure campaign contributor of his is one of the most controversial people in the country right now, as he weathers the storm of his own alleged insider trading and corruption scandals.

WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”

That kind of experience is unmatched.

Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.

Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.

It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.

However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
