I Confronted Florida GOP Chairman Over His Charge Card Scandal

Published

This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The Daily Caller:

Republican Party of Florida chairman Blaise Ingoglia is facing a serious scandal involving mismanagement of state party funds. Ingoglia is running for re-election for chairman Saturday in Orlando against challenger Christian Ziegler.

Ingoglia’s state party re-imbursed the personal charge card of a twentysomething staffer for former Marco Rubio chief of staff and current Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran. Records show that the re-imbursements totaled more than $1.2 million.

The scandal is similar to a different case involving Rubio, who consistently charged the Republican Party of Florida for personal expenses. But this current scandal is more recent, and potentially more damning. Re-imbursements went for lavish steak and lobster dinners, cigars, and expensive hotels in New York City.

Ingoglia’s party spent more than $15,000 on untraceable American Express gift cards in early 2015. I found Ingoglia, a state representative, at the Florida state capitol in Tallahassee to ask him about it. Here’s what happened:

Ingoglia is running against challenger Christian Ziegler, a close friend of key figures from the Donald Trump campaign. Ziegler’s candidacy presents a contrast to Ingoglia, who is closely tied to Rubio but has a contentious relationship with Governor Rick Scott, who is supporting Ziegler.

My efforts to expose Ingoglia’s dealings have come under fire in Florida political circles, with Ingoglia’s camp accusing me of negative campaigning. Though I met with Ziegler (after he announced his candidacy) I am in no way working for him. I am simply trying to expose the scandalous doings of a Florida political machine that rarely gets opposed, and has grown complacent with its power. My efforts to expose this conduct will continue through Saturday’s election and beyond.

VIDEO: Indiana Teacher Claims She Was Fired for Exposing Left-Wing ‘Social Emotional Learning’ Scheme

This woman’s story is going viral.

Published

on

An Indiana teacher released a viral video this week giving riveting testimony about her dismissal from a public school because of her activism efforts against left-wing educational schemes.

“My name is Jennifer, and I am a public school teacher who is also the founder of Purple for Parents Indiana,” she said. “I started Purple for Parents here to expose the truth about Red for Ed, the NEA and the radical agenda behind it.”

She believes that the National Education Association (NEA) is involved in a scheme to not only elect Democrats, but also indoctrinate and brainwash young minds through a sneaky overhaul of the curriculum in public schools.

“One of these hot topic issues is a push to change school culture through social emotional learning programs,” she explained.

“My school is currently in the third year of its SEL program called ‘Leader in Me.’ It is used to educate what they call the whole child through language manipulation, role playing, and influence of morals and values. As a teacher and a parent, I find this program to be very disturbing because these things should be taught by parents,” she said.

Jennifer said she was fired last Friday from her school as a result of exposing this agenda, based on a Facebook post she made the previous Monday exposing the agenda. Jennifer said that the school claimed she was “making them look bad” and being “untruthful” with her post.

“I want everyone to know that everything that I said was the truth. I believe parents should be aware of what’s going on, and my concern is truly because I care about children and parental rights,” she said.

Jennifer’s main concern with the SEL program is that it is being administered without parental consent, and parents have no ability to opt their children out.

“After being fired for speaking the truth, I immediately realized I can no longer trust the school to care fairly for my daughter, and I immediately unenrolled her,” she said. “I am deeply worried about what is going on in the public schools, and the measures that they will take to silence the truth.”

Jennifer had to choke back tears in the video when recalling how she was fired without being able to say goodbye to the students she cared for so much.

“I am an extremely hard-worker who is always kind and professional. It hurts me that I had to leave without saying goodbye to my students, and I have no idea what reason they will give for my absence,” she said.

Jennifer urged people to share her video to help raise awareness of what is going on in the school system, as leftists become more bold in their exploitation of the youth.

Her entire video address can be seen here:

Educational experts refer to SEL programs as “government-sponsored personality manipulation” and note how they cannot be tested for effectiveness due to their total subjectivity.

While Education Secretary Betsy Devos claims that Common Core is dead, the underlying principles behind the standards remain firmly in place. Exposing the agenda can have serious consequences.
