Spoken like a man who knows he’s going to die in prison.

A former financial director of a Colorado church has been charged with stealing over $340,000 from the church to purchase several items for personal use, such as adult sex toys.
According to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Sara Ann Mock-Butler turned herself into El Paso County Jail on May 31 to answer for charges related to her time as financial director of Pikes Peak Christian Church (PPCC) in Colorado Springs.
Deputies from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office received a report on Oct. 24, 2022, that Mock-Butler committed fraud and theft during her time as the church’s financial director. For roughly six months, detectives from the Office Investigations Division investigated “financial documents and correlating evidence in the case.”the christian post
Well at least she was spending the money wisely.
“As today’s enforcement action demonstrates, the FBI remains committed to holding all equally accountable under the law. As we allege, Congressman Santos committed federal crimes, and he will now be forced to face the consequences of his actions. I would like to commend the diligent efforts of the investigative and prosecutorial teams in this matter,” stated FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Driscoll.
“At the height of the pandemic in 2020, George Santos allegedly applied for and received unemployment benefits while he was employed and running for Congress,” stated District Attorney Donnelly. “As charged in the indictment, the defendant’s alleged behavior continued during his second run for Congress when he pocketed campaign contributions and used that money to pay down personal debts and buy designer clothing. This indictment is the result of a lengthy collaboration between law enforcement agencies, and I thank our partners at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for their dedication to rooting out public corruption.”
I wonder how many other warrants they will find when they run his fingerprints?
Alvin Bragg’s a clever fellow – kept everyone guessing, and since now it appears Weisselberg may have flipped, it explains the timing perfectly.

Must we wait until Tuesday for his arrest or committal?
“Every third generation in this country has had to do something big. You think about the Founders and what they did when they declared why we’re going to be an independent country, what they had to overcome, the greatest military in the world. They did it.
Three generations later, Lincoln and the Americans then held the country together, got rid of the evil of slavery. Three generations later, we defeated imperial Japan and Nazi Germany, the evils that those two countries represented and the greatest generation won that war.
Here we are three generations later and the assault is from the radical left. We have to step forward and do our part like previous generations of Americans have done. I think we’re up to the task.”Rep. Jim Jordan, on Newsmax
Of course Jordan’s timeline doesn’t even add up. If you go from 1776 to 1861 or 1865 that’s 85-89 years (4 generations). From 1861/1865 to 1941/1945 that’s 80-84 years (4 generations).
Perhaps if he wasn’t so busy covering for a pedophile at Ohio State University Jordan might have picked up some basic math pointers.

Today’s “What A Maroon Award goes to…..
Via Bloomberg News :
Donald Trump said a New York law enabling Congress to ask for his state tax returns no longer applies because he isn’t president.
The law, known as the Trust Act, allows the state to share the president’s tax information with a congressional committee that asks for it. Trump sued the House and Ways and Means Committee to block it from requesting information.
“While the Trust Act is not the clearest statute, the best reading is that it does not apply to former presidents,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.
Trump’s previous argument was that Congress couldn’t ask for his tax information because he was President.
President Trump on Thursday called Democrats’ opposition to his proposed border wall “strictly political” and accused the party of seeking an advantage in the 2020 presidential election as a partial government shutdown entered its 13th day.
The tweet echoed comments Trump made during a lengthy and at-times meandering Cabinet meeting a day earlier, when he claimed the government is partially shuttered because “Democrats are looking to 2020.”
The Shutdown is only because of the 2020 Presidential Election. The Democrats know they can’t win based on all of the achievements of “Trump,” so they are going all out on the desperately needed Wall and Border Security – and Presidential Harassment. For them, strictly politics!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2019
Duncan Osbourne reports at Gay City News:
Bayna-Lekheim El-Amin was sentenced to nine years in prison and three years post-release supervision for assaulting two men in the Dallas BBQ in Chelsea in 2015.
“The jury rejected your claim of self-defense,” said Arlene Goldberg, the judge who heard the case in Manhattan Supreme Court, on September 15. “That you did not cause serious physical injury to them was only a matter of luck.”
El-Amin faced five low-level felony assault charges in a May 5, 2015 altercation he had with Jonathan Snipes, 33, and his then-partner, Ethan York-Adams, 26, in the restaurant, which is located at Eighth Avenue and 23rd Street.
The prosecution’s case, which included several videos, was that the fight was divided into three parts and the 42-year-old was not charged with any crime in part one, where he was defending himself from Snipes, who started the fight by attacking El-Amin.
In parts two and three, El-Amin was continuing to fight when Snipes had effectively surrendered, the prosecution said. El-Amin always faced the greatest jeopardy from his actions in part three, where he can be seen hitting the two men on their heads with a heavy wooden chair as they stand with their backs to him.
El-Amin claimed he was defending himself in the altercation with the much smaller Jonathan Snipes at the Chelsea restaurant. Indeed, surveillance video showed Snipes starting the fight bu hitting El-Amin with a canvass bag. But El-Amin, according to prosecutors, continued the fight after Snipes had given up. Additional video showed El-Amin “hitting the two men on their heads with a heavy wooden chair as they stand with their backs to him walking away to the horror of on-lookers and then fled the scene.
“The case boils down to this defendant took it too far,” said prosecutor Leah Saxtein. “He decided to get revenge. … He used a dangerous instrument to strike them in the most vulnerable part of the human body.”
El-Amin and some supporters attempted to frame the incident that El-Amin was a victim of racism. Waddie G of the black entertainment website the G-List Society shared social media posts accusing Snipes and York-Adams of exploiting “white privilege” which was picked up by other various QPOC groups including the former LGBT equality group GetEQUAL. . El-Amin who himself spoke at the hearing, described his accusers as “drunk white men who felt they were entitled to swing on me.”
But the judge did not agree. “I know that you want to cast this, your supporters as well, as an issue about race,” Goldberg said. “I don’t see it that way. … When you picked up that chair, that was a criminal act that cannot be excused.”
El-Amin’s lawyer had sought the minimum sentence, three and a half years, for the charges on which he was convicted. The prosecution sought 12 years plus five years of post-release supervision.
El-Amin has a previous record of 29 felony convictions across several states.
“Pastor” Ken Adkins, who faced widespread condemnation for making offensive remarks about a fatal shooting that left 49 LGBT club goers dead and 53 others wounded at a gay nightclub in Orlando turned himself in to police about 9 a.m. Friday on aggravated child molestation charges on a young boy, reported The Florida Time-Union.
The alleged abuse took place at Adkins’ church in Brunswick, as well as the pastor’s car and the victim’s home, prosecutors said.
His attorney said investigators told him the abuse took place in 2010.
In 2012 a Glynn County magistrate ordered Adkins to stop using his Facebook and social media accounts to call a School Board member “a fool” or a “runaway slave.” The order also barred Adkins from using the term “child molester” without proof when criticizing a worker for two local campaigns.
The pastor’s wife said she believed Adkins would be cleared, and she expressed concern about the young man who made the allegations.
Charlotte Stormy Adkins said the alleged victim was part of the church’s ministry and had been mentored by her and her husband.
Shortly after the PLUSE Nightclub Massacre Adkins took to Twitter talking about the LGBT victims saying “I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!!”
