A staffer for a failed anti-Trump former congressman from Virginia has been indicted for election fraud, according to Monday reports.

“Special prosecutor Donald Caldwell announced the indictment in a statement Monday,” said WAVY. “He did not identify the staffer who worked on Scott Taylor’s campaign in Virginia’s coastal 2nd Congressional District, but Virginia Beach Court records identify the staffer is Lauren Creekmore.”

The incumbent Republican congressman lost his reelection bid last summer, during which there was a great deal of controversy.

His campaign allegedly forged signatures so a third candidate would appear on the ballot, thus splitting the vote. The candidate was eventually removed from the ballot in what was described as “out-and-out” fraud.

“Whatever their motivation for that decision was, the bottom line is that circulating petitions in accordance with the law on behalf of a third party is not a crime,” Caldwell reportedly said. “However, at some point between June 1, 2018, and June 12, 2018, it is clear that individuals decided to engage in activity that was a violation of Virginia law.”

Taylor said in a statement Monday:

The special prosecutor’s release today makes it concretely clear, as I have maintained all along, I knew nothing about any illegal actions that transpired. Further it is entirely appropriate to hold those accountable for their actions in this matter.

It was also a breach of public trust to see the Democrats falsely state I was under investigation, when they knew this was never the case, and direct the creation of ads containing numerous demonstrably false statements. Today serves as a complete repudiation of the smears and lies leveled against me in the campaign last year. I was not ever aware of any wrongdoing by my campaign until the allegations came to light. Today’s release by the special prosecutor is complete vindication in that regard.

Given the positive polling before the petition issue came to light and the close loss we suffered on Election Day, it is clear the the millions spent by the dishonest Democrats impacted the outcome of the race.

Since I was 18, I have been called to service. That call has not subsided in me and I intend to stay engaged. I have lived up to the standards of integrity and character instilled in me by mother, mentor, and the military throughout my time in public office. The update provided on the investigation today confirms that.

Taylor, a Paul Ryan ally, has a questionable record. He was accused of threatening to blow up a Numbers USA office in late 2017. Numbers USA is an anti-amnesty group.

Nine of the 2020 Forbes Ten Wealthiest Americans Are Democrat-Affiliated Liberal Megadonors

Pure oligarchy, greed and corruption.

Published

Forbes Magazine released its annual list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world this week, and nine of the top ten wealthiest Americans featured on the list appear to be staunch Democrats and liberal donors.

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, Larry Ellison, Steve Ballmer, Elon Musk, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Alice Walton were named as the wealthiest American citizens, all possessing a personal net worth of over 60 billion dollars. Nearly all of them are closely affiliated with Democrat politics in various capacities, most commonly as lavish donors to Democrat campaigns and liberal political causes.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is the only exception, being a figure who appears unaffiliated with the political left, having donated considerably more money to Republicans than Democrats in the 2018 election cycle, although he donated to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Musk has vaguely affiliated himself with some conservatives, and opposed some of California’s coronavirus lockdown policies.

Bezos himself reportedly personally encouraged Mike Bloomberg to run for President, having feuded with President Trump personally at length over Amazon’s utilization of the Postal Service. He hasn’t donated to Biden, but his general affiliation with Democratic politics is indicated through his tacit Bloomberg endorsement.

Alice Walton, a Walmart heiress, comes from a traditionally Republican family, but is a Biden donor with an extensive history of supporting Democrats. The rest of the top 10 are reliable Democrat donors, donating to Republicans rarely, if at all. Mark Zuckerberg occasionally depicts himself as a political centrist independent of Silicon Valley neoliberal politics, but the Facebook platform engages in prolific censorship of conservatives, without applying the same tactics to the political left.

The wealthiest billionaire oligarchs are determined to use their political power to crush the life prospects of the everyday American and the traditional middle-class American way of life. The political right and real conservatives should oppose them at every turn, reinstating an economic vision that upholds small businesses over multinational corporations and entrepreneurship at a local, community level as an alternative to the domination of monopoly billionaires.
