A candidate for U.S. Congress from Colorado has made many blunders in his campaign finance history that have been passed off either as mistakes or conveniently explained away.
Darryl Glenn is a County Commissioner for El Paso County, CO, former City Councilman in Colorado Springs and 2016 Candidate for U.S. Senate from Colorado who has a sordid history questionable campaign finance decisions. Not surprisingly, he is part of the NeverTrump establishment GOP. As most understand, the swamp crosses party lines and is not strictly geographically located in Washington.
Dating back to 2014, Glenn has made numerous payments to family members from his campaign committees. According to the Federal Election Commission’s Campaign Finance Database, when Glenn ran for U.S. Senate in 2016 and lost to incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet, he paid his wife, Jane Northrup Glenn, and her company Second Heaven Strategies a combined $54,672 for “consulting services:”
|2017||$30,000||Second Heaven Strategies||Campaign Consulting, Strategic Consulting|
|2016*||$24,672||Jane Northrup||Salary, Grassroots Consulting, Bonus|
|*The 2016 total includes a 11/9 payment of $5,672, reported as bonus & mileage reimbursement|
During the final months of the same campaign, Glenn paid his daughter Ashley $13,000 for “grassroots consulting.” He also paid her $1000 per month for “social media consulting.” He made two payments of $1000 to Northrup Glenn’s son from a previous marriage, Kevin Cruz for “campaign consulting:”
|2016||$13,000||Ashley Glenn||Grassroots Consulting, Salary|
|2017||$6,000||Ashley Glenn||Social Media Consulting|
|2017||$2,000||Andrew Cruz||Campaign Consulting|
In 2014, Glenn ran a successful campaign for the Board of County Commission, where he paid $10,000 to his daughter Ashley, nearly half of the $24,000 spent during the whole cycle. The payments were made in October and November in $5000 installments, right at the end of the campaign, which Glenn won by 60 points. According to Glenn, the payments were made for social media and marketing.
Glenn has had issues with improperly handling excessive campaign contributions, too. According to FEC records, Glenn received several donations in excess of amount legally permitted during his 2016 Senate bid. Federal law requires the refunding of excessive donations within 60 days. Instead, Glenn held onto the donations until after the election ended:
|Donor||Date of Excessive $||Refund Amt||Refund Date||Days Held|
|GC Luxury Homes LLC||8/23/16||$1,000||1/31/17||161|
|Patrick Davis Consulting LLC||8/23/16||$250||1/31/17||161|
|Schwartz Media Buying Co||7/22/16||$8,100||11/16/16||117|
He also paid his staffers and family bonuses using campaign funds just after his 2016 loss:
|Capel, Benyam||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Caro, Juan||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/10/16||$2,500.00|
|Croghan, Meghan||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$4,000.00|
|Gage, Valerie||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Glenn, Ashley||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Jacobson, Seth||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$4,000.00|
|Knight, Sarah||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$2,990.00|

|Richards, Jacob||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Santaniello, Joe||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$5,000.00|
|Supranovich, Daniel||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
|Tallis, Kristin||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$4,000.00|
|Toledo, Fran||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$1,000.00|
|Wilson, Evan||Grassroots Consulting – Bonus||11/9/16||$3,000.00|
In late November 2016, Glenn’s campaign cut Glenn a check for $70,815 according to FEC records. The check was refunded a week later, and the campaign declared it a mistaken payment in its finance report. Here is the receipt for the returned payment:
Big League Politics reported earlier today that Glenn is currently paying himself out of his campaign contributions and loaning the money back to his campaign. The move, while legal, is shifty and will allow Glenn to pay himself nearly $90,000 after the campaign ends.
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.
