Dem Mayor Arrested for Fraud: ‘I’m Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty’

Published

on

The mayor of Fall River, Massachusetts is refusing to resign after his arrest on suspicion of fraud, which he allegedly used to fund a luxurious lifestyle.

“I am presumed innocent until proven otherwise,” Mayor Jasiel Correia said at a Tuesday press conference. “I will not allow political enemies to remove me from office.”

Thank goodness for the fundamental American right to due process, which protects Democrat Correia, mere weeks after his party attempted to destroy it during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Once again, Democrats seem to have one set of rules for themselves, and another for their political adversaries. Kavanaugh, you might remember, was branded by Democrats and their mouthpieces in the left wing media as a gang rapist and sexual abuser over unprovable allegations of sexual assault stemming from an alleged incident that happened 36 years ago.

“Not arrogantly, not selfishly, but humbly, I will continue to every day show how hard working your mayor is, and I will not resign,” Correia said.

“Federal prosecutors allege Correia stole $231,447 from investors to fund a lavish lifestyle. He allegedly spent the money on designer clothes, a Mercedes-Benz, jewelry, his mayoral campaign, travel, student loan and credit card payments, casinos and adult entertainment,” according to a report.

“The money was supposed to go toward developing an app, SnoOwl, to connect businesses with customers. Authorities says he persuaded seven people to invest $363,690 in the company.”

Mitch McConnell Censured by Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party for Betrayal of President Trump

Kentucky Republicans aren’t happy.

Published

Kentucky Senator and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has been formally censured by the Nelson County, Kentucky Republican Party, with party officials accusing the establishment Republican of betraying President Donald Trump.

A censure resolution was unanimously approved on Tuesday evening, in response to McConnell’s claim that President Trump was responsible for a raucous protest at the US Capitol earlier this month.

The censure “demands (McConnell) retract his statements impugning the honor of President Donald J. Trump,” referring to claims made that President Trump incited the Capitol riot. President Trump had urged rallygoers to proceed to the Capitol peacefully, before a small minority of those present took matters too far and trespassed onto Capitol grounds, disrupting election certification proceedings.

I think it’s despicable. I think it’s a shame what he did today, because he used us over the past year to get his sorry butt reelected,” said a Kentucky Republican who phoned into the Nelson County GOP meeting in which McConnell was censured. “He used us.

The censure resolution accuses McConnell of  having “abandoned his Republican base that put him in office.

McConnell has even gone so far as to suggest that he’d consider convicting President Trump in an impeachment trial, even after he’s left office. Such a development would represent no less than a final, ultimate betrayal of President Trump, with legal experts suggesting such a move isn’t even legal, with the Senate lacking jurisdiction to convict a private citizen.

Kentucky Republicans are also pushing for a rebuke of McConnell within  the Kentucky Republican Party at the state level, and activists aim to pass a resolution requesting that McConnell shut down a second, hoax impeachment trial of President Trump, who has since left office.
