In a major upset on Tuesday night, Dave “Hutch” Hutchinson defeated incumbent Rich Stanek to become the next Hennepin County Sheriff in Minnesota. Hutchinson, who is a police sergeant for Metro Transit, beat Stanek 264,511 (49.93 percent) to 262,182 (49.49 percent). Stanek was seeking his fourth term as sheriff.
On Wednesday, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey welcomed Hutchinson to City Hall. Hutch is the first openly gay sheriff in the Upper Midwest.
The sheriff-elect in Hennepin County says he is ready to get to work, but his emphasis is on protecting the immigrant community, as opposed to actual citizens in Minnesota.
“My promise has always been that immigrants, no matter their status or documentation can come to the Sheriff’s office for help,” Hutch said.
Hutch campaigned hard against ICE and against immigration enforcement in his bid for office, as detailed in this Pacific Standard article “How To Beat ICE In Your Hometown? Run For Sheriff.”
However, Stanek is refusing to concede, arguing that the race is too close to call. Hutchinson’s campaign has declared victory, as well as the official Hennepin County Twitter account.

The Stanek campaign issued the following statement:
“On behalf of Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek, we thank everyone who voted in the Hennepin County Sheriff Election and to all the many volunteers who have supported this effort for the past several months.
“Yesterday’s election results were extremely close. The information we have shows that this race is too close to call, and that the results are not yet official. At this time the Sheriff Stanek Volunteer Committee will await the Hennepin County Canvassing Board meeting scheduled for next Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. before making further comment.”
While serving as Sheriff, Stanek was under increasing criticism from Left wing state leaders and then U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison to comply with Sanctuary City protocol. Ellison, who is a Muslim, has worked to open Minnesota’s borders to hordes of Islamic immigrants, despite the fact that increased Islamic immigration has brought crime and terrorism to Minnesota.
During the campaign, Stanek was under fire due to multiple high-profile arrests of his son Ryan, who was soliciting a minor for sex and had child pornography on his cell phone depicting violent sexual images of children as young as three years old.
Stanek’s son was sentenced to three months in jail.
Prior to Stanek’s upset loss, he made national news after being involved in a physical altercation with a former FBI agent on June 27, 2017 in Reno, NV.
Hennepin County has a new Sheriff in town, and time will tell what effect Hutch’s pro-Sanctuary state and anti-ICE policies will have on a county with a heavy Somali immigrant population, many of whom have committed acts of terrorism and violent crimes since living in Minnesota.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
