Rep. Richard Hudson has changed his Twitter handle in an apparent attempt to dodge scrutiny over a Big League Politics story released yesterday.
“I appreciate you using the full statement, and going through and explaining what the amendment [to the National Defense Authorization Act] did, but I just don’t really understand why you’re implying that Congressman would be to blame for a Marine’s death,” said Tatum Gibson, spokeswoman for Rep. Richard “Rich” Hudson (R.-NC.).
Gibson contacted Big League Politics yesterday after release of a report that the Marine Corps requested funding for new parachutes for its paratroopers, which was denied last December by a provision inserted into the NDAA by Rep. Hudson.
Marine Cpl. Alejandro “Alex” Romero died in a parachuting accident in late January in Coolidge, Arizona.
Big League Politics published the story, and tagged Rep. Hudson in a Tweet with a link to the story. His Twitter handle was @RepRichardHudson.

Today, he changed his Twitter handle in an apparent effort to distance himself from the report.
“As soon as we heard that the tax cut was going to come through, we started planning,” said Moscardini. “… As soon as it actually cleared, we pulled the trigger. We’ve been interviewing some people, and they’re actually starting in two or three weeks.” https://t.co/yWSZigpphg

His new Twitter handle is @RepRichHudson.
“Congressman Hudson has been very open about his support of our military and wanting to get them the funds and training and equipment that they need,” said Gibson in response to a request for comment regarding what Hudson had to say to Romero’s family, and to those who might think the military is under-funded.
Gibson then denied that the provision of the bill blocked funding for Marine parachutes.
Big League Politics had previously spoken with the Marine Corps, and a spokesperson confirmed that the Marines did indeed request funding for new parachuting equipment.
Claude H. Chafin, Director of Communications for the House Armed Services Committee said that the provision that blocked funding for the equipment was the result of an amendment offered by Hudson on the House Floor.
Gibson also accused Big League Politics of playing “gotcha politics” for asking why Hudson was willing to vote for certain non-traditionally conservative items, while voting against others.
For example, Hudson voted in favor of Continuing Resolutions fund the federal government in both December and January, which includes funding programs like Planned Parenthood.
He eventually voted against the Bi-Partisan Budget Act of 2018, to fund the federal government through 2019. That bill placed significant emphasis on military spending, with most of the $300 million increase in the federal budget being allocated to our troops.
Hudson will fund Planned Parenthood, as long as he does not have to fund the military along with it.
Bill Clinton Met Epstein Madame Ghislane Maxwell for ‘Intimate’ Private Dinner in Los Angeles in 2014
Clinton’s connections to Epstein are extensive.
Bill Clinton met Ghislane Maxwell in Los Angeles for an ‘intimate’ private dinner in 2014, according to new reporting published Tuesday by the Daily Beast.
The Beast quoted a source who supposedly previously worked for Bill Clinton and was incensed by his decision to meet with Maxwell. “This is an intimate dinner with Clinton in L.A…. Think of all the people he knows in L.A., and Ghislaine gets to attend.”
The report also indicates that Clinton’s chief of staff, Jon Davidson, knew that the former Jeffrey Epstein madame was attending the private dinner, which he organized. Davidson declined to comment when asked about his connection to the event.
This dinner took place more than five years after Jeffrey Epstein escaped legal consequences for procuring a minor for prostitution, utilizing his elite connections to avoid any serious jail or prison time. Ben Schwerin, who is now a corporate executive for Snapchat, and talent agent Michael Kives were also present, which was held at Crossroads Kitchen.
A Bill Clinton spokesperson declined to comment on the specific reports of meeting Maxwell for dinner in 2014, only denying that he knew anything of Jeffrey Epstein’s or Maxwell’s alleged sex crimes. The spokesman’s refusal to address the new reports of a 2014 Ghislane Maxwell meeting could be taken as an implicit admission that the dinner took place, years after Maxwell’s connection to Epstein’s infamous sex trafficking operation was publicly known.
Two verified former Epstein associates- one of whom was trafficked by the now-deceased pedophile billionaire- have spoken of personally seeing Bill Clinton on Jeffrey Epstein’s infamous ‘pedophile island’ of Little Saint James in the US Virgin Islands. Clinton strenuously denies the claims, made by Virginia Giuffre and former Epstein maintenance man Bill Scully.
Clinton’s connections to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell- who is currently incarcerated at a New York federal jail as she awaits trial for sex crimes related to Epstein’s empire- appear to be enduring and consistent over what may be decades. He has some serious answers to give on the nature of their relationship.
