Disgraced progressive provocateur Michael Avenatti is being accused of pocketing more than $2 million in settlement money intended for an NBA player’s ex-girlfriend.
The reports represent the latest accusations of criminal activity on the part of the pugnacious attorney, who is currently being charged with extortion for an alleged shakedown of Nike.
The reports of embezzlement first surfaced in the grand jury indictment of the California lawyer.
Alexis Gardner, a waitress and barista, is claiming that Avenatti stole around $2 million that she was awarded through a legal settlement with her ex-boyfriend, the Miami Heat’s Hasan Whiteside. Whiteside is said to have wired a payment of $2.75 million to Avenatti intended for his ex immediately. But Avenatti told her she’d be receiving a series of 96 monthly payments, only 11 of which he made. The showboat attorney, who was entitled to no more than $1 million in legal fees, is accused of spending the rest of the money on a deposit for a private plane.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Avenatti’s scam of Gardner was repeated with some of his other clients. Prosecutors say that Avenatti also embezzled money from Geoffrey Ernest Johnson, a mentally disabled paraplegic man, and Michelle Phan, a makeup YouTuber.
If the charges of embezzling money from clients are accurate, Avenatti would predictably face disbarment by the State of California as a practicing lawyer. But he could be facing even more serious punishment related to white collar criminal activity.
The showboat is currently facing a load of 36 criminal charges in connection to his supposed extortion of Nike, with a hefty maximum penalty of 333 years in prison if found guilty. That would be a long way to fall for the former cable news regular touted by some in mainstream media just a few months ago as the future Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party.
50-Year-Old Transgender ‘Woman’ is Hailed as a Hero for Joining a Female College Basketball Team
This is mass insanity.
A 50-year-old transgender “woman” is being hailed as a hero for joining a female college basketball team and playing alongside girls under half “her” age.
Gabrielle Ludwig, born Robert Ludwig before “she” had a sex change in July 2012, is being allowed to play college basketball for the Mission College (Calif.) women’s basketball team. She is being called a brave trailblazer and receiving gushing profiles from the fake news media for engaging in this bizarre and troubling spectacle.
The nauseating USA Today profile on Ludwig reads as follows:
“Come out and be Gabrielle the player,” head coach Corey Cafferata tells her. “You worked hard to get here. This damn team in here, everyone has your back!”
Ludwig nervously runs her hand over the sock approaching the tattoo on her leg. She has long been eager yet apprehensive about this moment. Can she still play? What will she hear from adults in the stands? What will her opponents on the court whisper? And can she keep her emotions in check? Glancing up from the dirty rug, she says she is calm. She didn’t know if this day could ever arrive: Tonight, before spectators who will cheer and curse her, she hits the reset button on her life.
The profile noted (surprise, surprise) that Ludwig has a history of mental illness that includes “one failed suicide attempt, two failed marriages” and went into how Ludwig was taking hormones behind his wife’s back. His own daughter refuses to coddle his delusions.
They also noted that a female referee refused to shake Ludwig’s hand and many people gawk at Ludwig while “she” is engaging in this humiliating and demeaning spectacle. Even though LGBT insanity is being pushed on Americans, they still instinctively know this is unnatural and wrong.
The USA Today profile concludes:
With her knee wrapped, Ludwig pulls her car out of the dark parking lot and begins the drive back to Fremont to spend time with her partner and take an online quiz for her music course. Even in defeat, even when told of remarks of the two Siskiyous spectators, she says she has never been happier.
“I found a home with a bunch of dysfunctional lesbians, one deaf kid and a transsexual woman,” she says, laughing. “This is my home. This is the team I fit in. I am that missing puzzle piece. It fits.”
When Ludwig looks in the mirror she sees a father, a maternal figure, a veteran, a scientist, a life partner, and something she has been waiting more than three decades to say again: a teammate.
“Through camaraderie, we kind of figure out where the hell we are in life … ” Ludwig says. “We as human beings, we just want to be loved.”
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” a reporter asks.
“Where is Robert Ludwig?” Ludwig says. “Gone.”
She pauses for a few seconds, takes a deep breath and softens and slows her voice as her eyes remain glassy.
“Robert Ludwig is gone,” she says. “And the person you have is Gabrielle Ludwig with everything Robert embodied and was … That person [Robert] should be honored. He was a great guy. Robert is gone. He was a great father. His spirit is still here. It’s just that the spirit matches the body, as it should be.”
This is the new morality that is replacing Christianity in the former land of the free. America is in a death spiral that is showing no signs of slowing down with the military installation of Biden as president.
