Michael Avenatti, known to many as Creepy Porn Lawyer, claimed his innocence in his first post to social media since his arrest on Monday.
Mark Geragos, the Smollett attorney and former CNN contributor, is reported to be the unnamed co-conspirator in Avenatti’s alleged $25 million extortion scheme. All charges were dropped in the case against Smollett earlier today.
Avenatti, the former personal attorney of pornographic film star Stormy Daniels was arrested on Monday and charged with four counts of extortion and related conspiracy counts, only hours after he posted his plans to reveal an alleged college and high school basketball scandal involving major athletic brand Nike in a press conference scheduled for Monday afternoon.
In his tweet, Avenatti thanked his supporters for their “kind words and support,” and said he is “anxious for people to see what really happened.” He maintained Nike’s guilt while defending his own innocence, and said the “public will learn the truth about Nike’s crime & coverup.”

It is believed he allegedly extorted Nike for $20 million in exchange for not moving forward with his press conference and lawsuit against the company, which led the Southern District of New York to investigate and eventually arrest Avenatti on these charges.
Nike has provided no public statement on Avenatti’s arrest or the veracity of his claims.
If found guilty, Avenatti could face up to 50 years in prison for his crimes, as Big League Politics reported earlier today.
Ironically, this comes after Avenatti spent months claiming he was going to personally end President Donald Trump’s time in office while representing Daniels, at one point claiming the president would be indicted by December 31, 2018.
Almost four months later, President Trump has been totally exonerated by the Mueller report, and Avenatti is facing a fight for his freedom.
Just ten months ago Avenatti was flying high as the Democrat media complex’s darling, giving daily interviews claiming that he would take down President Donald J. Trump.
“I believe that ultimately he will be forced to resign due to information that he’s — is going to come to light in connection with our case, as well as the raids by the FBI,” Avenatti told a panel on “CBS This Morning.” “We’re going to prove the details of this reimbursement. I think there’s going to be criminal liability, criminal exposure in how this payment was handled.”
He was referring to an alleged “hush money” payment made to Avenatti’s client Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence about an alleged affair with Trump. At the time, he was attempting to make the case that the alleged payment constituted a subversion of campaign finance law.
Big League Politics will continue to report on the criminal case against Avenatti, and his stunning reversal of fortunes.
Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther
Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.
One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.
While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley”
Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”
However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.
The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed. In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.
Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.
She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.
The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
