Uh Oh You Guys. Nigerian Scammers Have Discovered Campaign Finance.

News

Here is a nice story out of Florida! Yinka Adeshina is a Nigerian-educated pharmacist who is realizing the American Dream ofrunning for governor (OF FLORIDA) as a Republican, and rakin' in the fuckin' dough, to the tune of almost $200 large from 407 donors. (You all need to step it the fuck up, yo.)


So who were Adeshina's very generous benefactors? Well, some dead people. And lots of people without Social Security numbers. And sooooo many people who all crammed in, 30 together, to live in imaginary houses at addresses that do not exist!

At least three donors are dead, according to Social Security records. Fifty-five percent of the addresses do not exist. At least a dozen street names don’t show up on maps or in the cities listed by Adeshina’s campaign.

Even where the addresses could be verified, many lead back to Publix stores, vacant fields and even a Best Buy store.

Thirty-seven people gave Adeshina money from “4100 Wicham” in both Melbourne and Fort Lauderdale. No such street exists in that South Florida city and 4100 N. Wickham Road in Melbourne is the approximate address of a UPS drop box in a Publix shopping plaza.

Nineteen people appear to share the same 2,000-square-foot townhouse where the candidate and her husband live in Tallahassee, although none of those people have Social Security numbers or any public ties to the property. The donors from Adeshina’s home at 1621 Crosspointe Way include people named “Gloria Gloria” and “Rola Akinbobola.”

But before you say lol Nigerian scammer lady, you are just making up fake donations to get matching funds, ask yourself if this nice lady would ever scam a thing?

On her website, Adeshina claims she is running for “New age ruler. 2014” and writes: “Imagine a new world with no pain and anguish. Strong, yet tender. Friends, live long, but enemies die young.”

See? Lovely!

According to the Federal Election Commission, Adeshina filed to run for president in 2016 as both a Democrat and a Republican. Her official campaign fundraising account for president designates her as a Democratic candidate.

Now we know for sure she is a crook, because she is a Democrat. Can't wait for the news to hit Gateway Pundit!

A guest post by "Knitsy McPurlson," which we suspect is not a real name.

Yr Wonkette is not the only website run by brilliant peoples unafraid to poke people with sharp, pointy sticks. Ravelry.com – a website for knitters, crocheters, and other folks interested in textiles and fiber arts – is poking people with knitting needles, which are very sharp indeed.

This past weekend, Ravelry.com's founders showed the world how easy it is to de-platform white nationalists and racists when they banned all "support of Donald Trump and his administration" from their website, concluding they "cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy." Seems like people smart enough to decode a knitting pattern are also smart enough to decode Trump's not-so-hidden message of racism and white nationalism.

One day, God willing, my grandchildren will click open their history textbooks and read about the Central American migrant internment camps. They'll learn about sick kids, locked in cages, kept hungry and dirty and cold for weeks on end, and they'll be horrified.

"Bubbie," they'll say, "how could this happen in America? How could there be toddlers sleeping on the ground without blankets, without soap or toothbrushes to clean themselves?"

"I don't know. I wish I had done more. I'm ashamed," I'll say. We will all have to answer for this atrocity. But some of us will have to answer more than others. Not just the archvillains like Stephen Miller and John Kelly, but the people who kept right on doing their jobs, even as those jobs morphed into defending concentration camps.
