China Lobbied for Congratulation Resolution From Wisconsin Legislature

It backfired, and the legislature condemned China’s coverup.

Published

The Chinese government carried out a lobbying effort to get the Wisconsin legislature to congratulate it for its coronavirus response, ultimately failing and ensuring the body passed a motion condemning the Chinese Communist Party’s coverup of the lethal virus.

Operatives associated with a Chinese consulate in the United States contacted Wisconsin Senate President Roger Roth in February and March lobbying for a formal resolution that would praise China’s supposed adoption of “unprecedented and rigorous measures for disease control and prevention,” and laughably congratulating China for being “transparent and quick in sharing key information of the virus with the WHO and the international community, thus creating a window of opportunity for other countries to make timely response.”

Senator Roth actually believed that the email requesting he bring up the measure congratulating China was a prank initially. After he was asked again by employees of the Chinese consulate to bring up the motion, he arranged for Senate staff to investigate the emails, ultimately determining they were genuine communications from consulate, which operates under the Chinese embassy to the United States.

Roth denied the requests for an official congratulation in uncertain terms, imitating legendary World War II general Anthony McAuliffe.I sent them back a one-word response. I said ‘nuts.

Roth would go on to reference the Chinese Communist Party’s sleazy attempt to seek official congratulations from the Wisconsin Legislature in a resolution designed to expressly condemn the nation’s authoritarian communist government over its coronavirus response, citing China’s repression of minorities such as the Uyghurs in addition to its suspicious and denialist response to the outbreak of coronavirus in Wuhan, China in December.

Then a couple of days later I said that we are going to introduce a resolution, it’s just not the one that the Chinese government wants. We’re going to introduce one that speaks the truth to the lies that I believe are being told around the world, so that’s how we ended up with the resolution as it was introduced.”

U.S. officials are currently investigating the possibility that the coronavirus escaped from a Chinese government research facility, as opposed to the Wuhan Wet Food Market.

Second Former Andrew Cuomo Aide Accuses Disgraced Governor of Sexual Harassment

Cuomo has refused to resign.

Published

A second former aide has accused beleaguered New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment, speaking the New York Times on Saturday.

Charlotte Bennett served as an executive assistant and health policy adviser in the Governor’s office until November of last year, and recounted a series of incidents where she was propositioned about her sex life and the governor’s preferences.

Ms. Bennett, 25, said the most unsettling episode occurred on June 5, when she was alone with Mr. Cuomo in his State Capitol office. In a series of interviews this week, she said the governor had asked her numerous questions about her personal life, including whether she thought age made a difference in romantic relationships, and had said that he was open to relationships with women in their 20s — comments she interpreted as clear overtures to a sexual relationship.”

Cuomo also allegedly questioned Bennett on her opinions of non-monogamous relationships.

I understood that the governor wanted to sleep with me, and felt horribly uncomfortable and scared,” Bennett said. “And was wondering how I was going to get out of it and assumed it was the end of my job.

Bennett is the second former Cuomo staffer to come public with accounts of sexual harassment. Lindsey Boylan, an ex-Cuomo aide who had previously spoken of toxicity in the establishment Democrat’s office. Boylan alleges that Cuomo asked her to play strip poker on a plane, that his underlings communicated he had a “crush” on her, and that the Governor would frequently touch her back and her arms.

Cuomo is currently facing a possible impeachment or censure from the New York legislature for his cover-up of the state’s disastrous nursing home scandal, in which the deaths of thousands of senior citizens were covered up in order to deflect an investigation from the Department of Justice. Leading Democrats such as Ron Kim have called for his resignation, and it may prove the new sexual harassment allegations could be the final straw.
