Illinois Democrats Push Racist, Sexist Bill to Force Women and People of Color on Corporate Boards

The Democrats in Illinois are intent upon using government force to inflict their diversity agenda on private businesses.

The Democrat-run state of Illinois has become a national for letting Hollywood con artist Jussie Smollett off the hook for staging a fake attack and blaming it on Trump supporters to invoke racial hate, and the state legislature is only adding to the disgrace as Democratic lawmakers invent new ways to discriminate.

State Rep. Chris Welch (D-Hillside) introduced House Bill 3394 that would force any publicly-traded corporation headquartered in the state of Illinois to hire at least one woman and at least one African-American on their board of directors starting in 2020. Hmmm…guess that means Asians and Mexicans are S.O.L in the diversity olympics!

HB3394 reads in part: “No later than the close of the 2020 calendar year, a publicly held domestic or foreign corporation whose principal executive offices, according to the corporation’s SEC 10-K form, are located in Illinois shall have a minimum of one female director and one African American director on its board of directors.”

The Secretary of State would publicly shame corporations who do not comply with the terms of the legislation by listing them online. The firms would be fined $300,000 if they do not submit to the racist, sexist provisions of the bill. One Republican legislator spoke up against the Democratic majority to oppose this madness.

“We are destroying the ability for our state to grow,” State Rep. Tony McCombie (R-Savanna) said.

This, of course, prompted an ignorant, disrespectful response from Welch – the particularly low IQ Democratic lawmaker who drafted the bill.

“I’m not going to be ashamed to stand here and fight for the people that sent me here,” he said. “Ashamed to fight for African-Americans to have a right in a room? Are you kidding me?”

The bill passed the House by a 61-27 vote on Friday. It is expected to be discussed further in the Senate where possible amendments will be added to the bill. More mandates may be added to satisfy the whims of other leftist victim groups who are desperate to leverage their status for government handouts.

If ultimately successful, Illinois will be following in the footsteps of the bankrupt liberal wasteland of California. They passed a similar law pertaining only to women back in 2018.

“The time has come,” said California State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) who introduced the sexist legislation. “We need to make sure our business entities are more productive and more profitable. That’s exactly what appointing women to these boards will do.”

Jackson, who was a career attorney before jumping on the public gravy train, masquerades as a pro-business to mask her identity politics agenda. If Illinois isn’t careful, they will become the California of the Midwest if they continue to pass bills like HB3394.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote

Bribery?

Published

on

Billionaire and former New York City Mayor has raised $16 million dollars to pay off outstanding fines of Black and Hispanic felons in Florida, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday. Florida restricts the voting rights of convicted criminals until they’ve paid off fines levied for their crimes by the criminal justice system.

It appears that Bloomberg’s fine repayment initative was only available to Black and Hispanic felons. Axios reported that to qualify for Bloomberg’s money, applicants had to have outstanding fines of less than $1,500, be already registered to vote, and to be Black or Latino.

White felons need not apply.

The program has reportedly already cleared the fines of 32,000 felons in the state, enabling them to vote in the election. It erases the punitive aspect of the court system’s fines, which were levied in the first place in order to require convicted criminals to personally make amends for their actions.

Bloomberg’s felon bailout giveaway is legally questionable, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has requested that Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody investigate what he’s doing. If he’s paying felons to vote for any one specific candidate, Bloomberg is in violation of campaign finance rules and could be liable to serve jail time .

The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” said a Bloomberg spokesperson when asked about the fine repayment initiative. But it doesn’t seem as if the failed Democratic primary candidate is willing to buy back the voting rights of individuals who might be less inclined to vote for Joe Biden in November.

Bloomberg already tried and failed to buy the nomination in the Democratic primary, and now he’s trying to buy the crucial swing state of Florida for Joe Biden. Corrupt oligarchs should not be allowed to abuse the political system with impunity.
