The Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC), the New York City prison that housed sex fiend Jeffrey Epstein when he died mysteriously, is refusing to divulge information about prisoner Michael Avenatti.
Big League Politics reached out to the MCC and talked with representatives from the prison who refused to send us his mug shot. We have filled a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, demanding access to the booking photograph as a result.
Avenatti is reportedly being subject to harsh conditions during his incarceration for allegedly violating bail conditions while awaiting an extortion trial:
Avenatti is awaiting trial on an extortion charge in a jail cell that reportedly once housed Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Judge Paul Gardephe’s order came a day after Avenatti’s lawyers complained about the conditions the critic of President Donald Trump faces in what they called the “notorious 10-South” section of Special Housing Unit of the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
Avenatti was arrested last week in Los Angeles after federal prosecutors there told a judge he had committed financial crimes while free on bail since last summer.
The attorney is charged in three separate federal cases that allege he ripped off clients, including porn star Stormy Daniels, for millions of dollars and tried to extort more than $20 million from athletic apparel giant Nike. Avenatti has denied any wrongdoing.
The Nike case could begin next week in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. Avenatti’s lawyers told the judge that the conditions he is being kept in at the jail are making it difficult for him to help lawyers prepare for that trial.
In a letter Monday to Gardephe, Avenatti’s lawyers said that since arriving in New York last Friday, he has been kept in 10-South, “the most secure floor in the entire” federal jail facility in Manhattan.
MCC personnel has been accused of extreme incompetence due to their handling of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein while he was incarcerated in the facility. Epstein was inexplicably taken off of suicide watch despite the fact that he had reportedly attempted suicide weeks before, and prison guards were missing in action at the time of Epstein’s mysterious death.
Two MCC correctional officers have been charged with falsifying records in the aftermath of Epstein’s death, but they may just be the convenient fall guys for a deeper, darker conspiracy.
“As alleged, the defendants had a duty to ensure the safety and security of federal inmates in their care at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Instead, they repeatedly failed to conduct mandated checks on inmates, and lied on official forms to hide their dereliction,” U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said.
“Security protocols are in place to protect the public, fellow officers and inmates being held in the MCC. We allege these officers falsified records to create the appearance they were following those protocols. The security risks created by this type of behavior are immense,” FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said.
“The message here is simple – citizens place their trust in those who have taken an oath to serve and protect the public, and when that trust is deliberately violated by public servants, who instead choose to break those regulations, then they will be held accountable,” he added.
Big League Politics will publish the Avenatti mug shot as soon as our FOIA request is processed and accepted.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
