Hollywood director and screenwriter Joss Whedon appears to be bankrolling dozens of ad campaigns for Democrats using a super PAC, creating a muddy paper trail that may show Whedon and various Democrats have run afoul of campaign finance laws.
Joss Whedon, who created Buffy the Vampire Slayer and directed several of the Marvel Avengers films, has donated over $400,000 to the newly founded political action committee One Vote At A Time. After each of his donations, One Vote At A Time made payments in the amount of his donations to Oh Must You? Productions Inc., a video production company owned by Whedon, which then ostensibly used the money to create the over 200 campaign advertisements posted to the PAC’s YouTube channel.
It is worth noting that campaign finance reports reveal Whedon and Oh Must You? Productions both use the same Malibu, California P.O. Box to receive and send these payments.
To further complicate matters, while large sums of money are traveling between Whedon, the PAC, and the production company, every advertisement produced by One Vote At A Time contains legal disclaimer at the end of the ad suggesting it was paid for entirely or in part by the candidates. Many of the candidates went as far as thanking One Vote At A Time for their production work on their campaign social media pages, suggesting the advertisements were made as a collaborative effort between the campaigns and the PAC.
In at least one instance, Whedon may have already violated campaign finance law.
Campaign finance reports reveal that Whedon contributed $4,085 to the reelection campaign of Ohio House Democrat Mary Lightbody. Lightbody then reported that she used $4,084.94 of this donation to purchase a political ad from “Oh Must You Productions/One Vote At A Time.”
Thanks to One Vote At A Time for the wonderful campaign video. Thanks also to director Joss Whedon for the financial support that made it possible.

The problem? One Vote At A Time is a federally registered super PAC, and is not legally allowed to spend money or influence state level politics. Worse, as a federally registered super PAC, it is not legally allowed to consult or speak with the campaigns it speaks for.
To further muddy the waters, Oh Must You? Productions Inc. has received $461,469 during this political cycle, and with the exception of one $2,700 payment, all of the money came from One Vote At A Time.
So far, One Vote At A Time has publicly posted campaign ads for state and federal candidates in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, Texas, and North Carolina.
For his part, Whedon previously expressed his distaste for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party using incendiary language on Twitter. He has tweeted that he wants House Speaker Paul Ryan to be “f*cked to death” by a rhino, claimed that Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation would “cement the first American dictatorship,” and was finally given a suspension from the platform after tweeting that he wished President Trump would “just quietly die.”
‘Ghostbusters’ Director Blames Hillary Clinton’s Unpopularity for Failure of All-Female Franchise Reboot
Maybe your movie just stunk, dude.
Nearly four years later, the all-female reboot of ‘Ghostbusters’ is now remembered as one of the worst atrocities in the history of cinema, and director Paul Feig is blaming anti-Hillary Clinton backlash for its failure.
“I think some really brilliant author … needs to write a book about 2016 and how intertwined we were with Hillary [Clinton] and the anti-Hillary movement,” Feig said while appearing on SiriusXM radio last week.
“Everyone was at a boiling point. I don’t know if it was having an African American president for eight years that teed them up, they were just ready to explode,” he added.
Feig is desperate to make excuses for his movie’s failure, rather than take personal responsibility for creating one of the worst movies in film history.
“It’s crazy how people got nuts about women trying to be in power or be in positions they weren’t normally in,” Feig said. “It was an ugly, ugly year.”
The fake news media has been pushing the line that sexism doomed the movie since its historic failure at the box office during its summer 2016 release. However, ‘Ghostbusters’ creator Ivan Reitman believes that it was nostalgia that caused the backlash, not sexism. Viewers did not want to watch a ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot that was seemingly blasphemous to the original.
“I think there’s way too much talk about gender [when it comes to this film],” Reitman said during an interview with Mashable. “I think that many of the people who were complaining were actually lovers of the [original] movie, not haters of women.”
Feig refuses to admit that his creation was so horrendous and even hopes to release a grueling 3.5 hour directors’ cut of the flick despite the fact that nobody wants to see it.

Because the movie was such a massive bomb, the cast has been scrapped and replaced with a new cast for the upcoming re-boot “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.” The initial trailer was released last year to rave reviews.
It can be seen here:
Actress Leslie Jones, who starred in the failed all-female reboot, whined about the new movie that is set for theaters in 2021 for completely sweeping her movie under the rug. Similar to her director, she blamed Trump because everyone hated her awful movie.
So insulting. Like fuck us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice)”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers” ugh so annoying. Such a dick move. And I don’t give fuck I’m saying something!!

Feig and Jones, in true liberal fashion, have refused to own up to their own failures. They will continue to create scapegoats instead of admitting the obvious about their horrendous movie that failed spectacularly in its feminist agenda of female empowerment.
