Minneapolis City Council Members Receiving $4,500 A Day Private Security From City After Voting to Abolish Police

They all support abolishing the police department.

Three Minneapolis City Council members- all of whom recently voted to defund and dismantle the city’s public police department- are receiving private security details at the expense at Minneapolis taxpayers, FOX 9 Minneapolis has reported on Saturday.

The three city council members, Phillipe Cunningham, Andrea Jenkins, and Alondra Cano, have incurred costs of more than $63,000 over the past three weeks through the use of the city-funded private security details.

Jenkins cited an alleged white nationalist threat within the city of Minneapolis as a justification for the expensive security detail in an email to FOX 9. “My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” said the city council member.

Councilmember Cunningham also brushed off answering as to why he uses a taxpayer-funded private security detail, even though he supports abolishing the police.

I don’t feel comfortable publicly discussing the death threats against me or the level of security I currently have protecting me from those threats,” said Cunningham in a text message.

An inquiry to the Minneapolis Police asking why the council members were using private security instead of police was answered with the explanation that police resources are required in the community. Police revealed that no public reports of alleged death threats to city council members were filed with the department, although it’s possible such reports could’ve been filed confidentially.

The Minneapolis City Council has adopted two resolutions since the killing of George Floyd to begin the abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department. Neoliberal Mayor Jacob Frey has expressed his opposition to the proposal, but the council has passed the resolution in a unanimous fashion, ensuring that the council could override a mayoral veto and fully abolish the police department, installing a “new transformative model of public safety.

The hypocritical practices of the Minneapolis council members could be a premonition of their vision for the city, in which the political and economic elite are guaranteed personal safety and protection while the city’s middle class is left to the devices of mobs of aggrieved, violent, looters and rioters.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Orders Investigation Into Mike Bloomberg’s Felon Voting Bribery Scheme

The oligarch may be held accountable.

Published

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has ordered an investigation into what appears to be a bribery voting scheme organized by Democrat oligarch Mike Bloomberg. Moody ordered the investigation after Governor Ron DeSantis requested it, following Congressman Matt Gaetz in questioning the legality of his felon voting scheme.

Bloomberg is personally paying off the outstanding fines of black and Hispanic felons in order to restore their voting rights in Florida before the November election. Florida prevents felons with outstanding fines from voting, and those responsible for criminal acts are nominally supposed to pay the fines incurred from their crimes- not an out-of-state billionaire.

Bloomberg is also nakedly racially discriminating in his felon voting scheme, reserving the fine repayment for black and Hispanic felons, only.

In her letter on the matter, AG Moody requests that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the scheme, as well as the FBI(as if they’d actually do anything.)

The Democrat oligarch could potentially face felony charges pertaining to obstruction of justice for paying fines that convicted felons are supposed to be responsible for, and election fraud for what seems to be bribing nominally eligible voters to tacitly support the Democrat candidate. The bribery charges could potentially make Bloomberg liable for federal criminal charges.

Florida passed a felon re-enfranchisement referendum in 2018, changing previous state law that barred felons from voting. They still have to pay off outstanding fines to utilize the right. The swing state has been trending red, but it remains a competitive must-win state for President Trump in November.
