Trump Pardoned Duncan Huner, but not his wife, Margaret Hunter, guilty on the same facts

Margaret Hunter took a plea deal and agreed to testify against Hunter. She filed for divorce from him in November. Recall that Hunter consistently blamed her for the wrongdoing, which he obviously engaged in as well, since a good deal of the illicit spending of campaign funds was done in the course of several extramarital affairs!

Shitbags of a feather stick together, I guess.

Trump Pardon or Commutation Prediction: Justin Volpe and Charles Schwartz

One of the more shocking pardons or commutations in the coming weeks will be for Justin Volpe, the former NYPD cop who attacked Abner Louima while he was in custody in 1997. Volpe took a plea deal and was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison. Several other police officers were also convicted of other charges, including, famously, Charles Schwartz.

Volpe is currently serving time in a federal prison, and is not scheduled for release until 2025. I predict that Trump will at the very least commute his sentence and set him free, effective immediately. He may also officially pardon Charles Schwartz for his perjury charge, which was a federal conviction.

Both moves would be extremely popular among the NYPD, who have always supported Schwartz, and who have less publicly supported Volpe's requests for sentencing relief.

Was the "Get a Brain! Morans" Guy The First MAGAT? Where is he now?

Picture taken at Pro-Iraq War Rally, St. Charles, Missouri - 2003.

Did anyone ever find out who he was?

Has anyone scanned Missouri MAGA rallies for The OG MAGAT?

Biden's *lead* in PA now exceeds Jorgensen's vote

In other words, Biden beat the combined total of Trump + Jorgensen.

Currently at 81,597 lead over Trump for Biden.
Jorgensen got about 79,000 votes.

I know there was one poster who has been very intent on showing that Jorgensen cost Trump the election in PA. I guess not. Sorry, Lucky.

EDIT: Lauren Underwood now up 1,100+ votes in IL14 - STILL at ISSUE

Wasserman has seen enough, and it's probably well outside the number of votes even remaining.

Oberweis can go back to slinging milk and ice cream!

Congratulations to Lauren Underwood for being re-elected in a traditionally Republican district that voted Trump this cycle. That's reaching across the aisle!


On edit: I was relying on the NY Times and Dave Wasserman. Both have since been corrected. Underwood still up and favored to take more votes in Lake County, but the margin is not 6,000 and therefore this one is not yet cooked.

Come on Lauren!!!

Here are the posts...slinks away...

Dodgers Third Baseman Justin Turner removed from World Series after positive COVID test

He was literally playing in the game tonight, and was pulled in the seventh inning, I think.

They just announced that he was pulled for a positive COVID test.

Also, the Dodgers won the World Series. Lucky he wasn't in the celebratory pile-on, I guess.
