Adding to mounting problems for the ride sharing titan, an Alabama man was arrested on two felony kidnapping charges after allegedly posing as an Uber driver and abducting young women.

“Tommy Wayne Beard, 62, targeted young women who became inebriated after spending time at bars in Tuscaloosa,” according to The Smoking Gun.

In March, Beard was arrested when police noticed a “suspicious vehicle” parked on the side of the road. Police questioned Beard, who was allegedly wearing “fully erect artificial male genitalia,” when they noticed a young woman passed out in his back seat. Beard told police that he was an Uber driver and was taking the young woman home.

Officers woke the woman, a University of Alabama student, who told them that she could not recall leaving the bar, but that her home was only a half-mile from the bar she left. Beard allegedly drove her seven miles from the bar, and was stopped by police only a quarter mile from his residence.

When police arrested Beard, they confiscated his phone which allegedly contained lewd photos of another young woman in the back seat of his car, and helped them “identify two additional female victims,” one of whom was found walking in the woods alone last year, unable to recall how she’d gotten there.

Uber is reeling from the recent death of a passenger who entered the vehicle of a fake driver in South Carolina, and was later murdered. The company is attempting to implement new safety standards that will ensure riders enter the correct vehicle.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
