An appointee of Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam was forced to resign in disgrace on Tuesday after bigoted posts she made on social media to foment hatred against the Catholic Church were unearthed.
Northam had appointed Democratic Party activist Gail Gordon Donegan to the Virginia Council on Women, but she had to quit her post after her incendiary comments about Catholics were discovered and caused great controversy.
“Abortion is morally indefensible to Catholic priests bcuz it results in fewer children to rape,” she wrote in a disgusting post from 2010.
That same year, Donegan wrote: “Saw a bumper sticker: ‘You can’t be both Catholic & Pro-Choice.’ Add: You can be a pedophile though!”
One year later, she wrote: “Go tell a Catholic they have dirt on their forehead,” including the hashtag #waystooffend to her post.
In addition to her comments about Catholics, she also made rude and profane comments about Republicans on her social media profile. She called former Republican U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock a “sh*thead” and told Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Radhika Jones to “f**k off, eat shit, and crawl back to hell.” Virginia’s two bishops led the charge that ultimately prompted her resignation.
“We expect anyone appointed to a council, board or commission for the commonwealth to be respectful of all faith groups and civil in his or her public comments. Her statements are offensive to Catholics and our faith,” Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington said in a statement.
Bishop Barry C. Knestout of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond said that Donegan “has demonstrated a pattern of ridiculing Catholic beliefs and employing stereotypes designed to malign people of faith. Had these comments been directed toward any other group of persons, they would have disqualified her from this role.”
They eventually got their wish, but certain Democratic Party leaders feel that Donegan should have been kept in her role even though she made hateful remarks toward Catholics on many different occasions.
“It is unfortunate that the Commonwealth will not benefit from the commitment and advocacy of Gail Donegan,” Senate Minority Leader Dick Saslaw (D-Fairfax) wrote in a Twitter post. “Her dedication to important issues would have made a great addition to the Virginia Council on Women.”
Donegan was forced to resign, but Gov. Northam remains in office despite the fact that he could never dispute the Big League Politics report showing his embarrassingly racist blackface photos from a college yearbook. She may have been the sacrificial lamb in this case, but overall, this hypocrisy shows the Democrats will only pay lip service against hate and bigotry when they are absolutely obligated to do so.
Billionaire Mike Bloomberg Pays $16 Million in Fines of Black and Hispanic Felons to Enable Them to Vote
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.
