Bloomberg Effort Raises $20 Million to Pay Fines for Florida Felons So They Can Vote

An effort bolstered by support from billionaire Michael Bloomberg has raised over $20 million to pay off fines for Florida felons, enabling them to vote in the upcoming presidential election. Bloomberg, NBA star LeBron James, and singer John Legend were among those helping raise funds for the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition with an October 5 voter registration deadline looming. The effort drew contributions from more than 44,000 people and eclipsed the $20 million milestone, the coalition announced Tuesday. “The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right,” Bloomberg, a former Democratic presidential candidate, said in a statement. “Working together with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, we are determined to end disenfranchisement and the discrimination that has always driven it.” “The ability to vote…

Senate Committee Alleges Hunter Biden Paid Women Linked to ‘Human Trafficking’

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, allegedly paid women linked to “prostitution or human trafficking,” according to the Senate Homeland Security panel in a report on Wednesday. Biden’s campaign and Senate Democrats dismissed the report as “a long-disproven, hard-core right-wing conspiracy theory.”

The GOP-controlled Homeland Security committee and the Senate Committee on Finance alleged, among other things, that the younger Biden made questionable financial transactions that opened he and his prominent family up to extortion and espionage concerns.

Hunter Biden “sent thousands of dollars” to individuals involved with “possible human trafficking,” which is associated with adult entertainment or prostitution, the report said.

“The records note that it is a documented fact that Hunter Biden has sent funds to nonresident alien women in the United States who are citizens of Russia and Ukraine and who have subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine,” the report said. “The records also note that some of these transactions are linked to what ‘appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.’”

The report also noted there were reports regarding the younger Biden’s alleged involvement with prostitution services.

Meanwhile, the GOP senators asserted that the Bidens and other family members were able to enrich themselves via links with foreign companies and governments while the former vice president was in office. Their report also said the Obama administration was aware of these conflicts of interest but took no action when Hunter Biden assumed a lucrative position on the board of Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings, which has long been accused of corruption.

“Hunter Biden, his family, and [business partner Devon] Archer received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds,” said the report, adding that Hunter Biden went on a “$100,000 global spending spree with James Biden and Sara Biden” after receiving money from a Chinese national who was identified as an investor.

Senate Democrats blasted the report as being politically motivated in an election season.

Sens. Gary Peters (D-Mi.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) said the GOP senators are using Russian disinformation to help President Donald Trump win reelection.

“Worst of all—the chairmen have amplified a known Russian attack on our election, and have used the credibility of the United States Senate to advance these discredited narratives, despite warnings from the Intelligence Community, the national security experts they interviewed over the course of their investigation, and Trump administration officials,” Peters said in a statement. “It is unconscionable that the chairmen are continuing to advance false information intended to undermine our democratic process at the expense of the bipartisan work we should be doing to protect our national security.”

Biden’s campaign hasn’t responded to a request for comment.

Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Biden’s campaign, told news outlets that Senate Homeland Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) was subsidizing “a foreign attack against the sovereignty of our elections with taxpayer dollars” by using “a long-disproven, hard-core right wing conspiracy theory” against Biden.

US Execution Planned of Killer Who Said Witchcraft Drove Him

CHICAGO—A former U.S. soldier who said an obsession with witchcraft led him to slay a Georgia nurse in a bid to lift a spell he believed she put on him is the first of two more inmates the federal government is preparing to put to death this week. William Emmett LeCroy, 50, on Tuesday would be the sixth federal inmate executed by lethal injection this year at the U.S. prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. Another is scheduled for Thursday of Christopher Vialva, who would be the first African-American on federal death row to be executed this year. LeCroy is white, as were four of the five inmates executed earlier. The fifth was a Navajo. Critics say President Donald Trump’s resumption of federal executions this year after a 17-year hiatus is…
