The Morning Rant – “Show Me The Republican And I’ll Find You The Campaign Finance Violation”

Monkey - Rodeo.JPG

I have written a couple times recently about how Campaign Finance laws are really just weapons to be used against Republicans, whereas Democrats can aggressively violate campaign finance laws without the FEC or Justice Department investigating them. In fact, hated Republicans such as Marjorie Taylor Greene have been investigated without cause - she had to prove her innocence without there even being any evidence of wrongdoing.

In a post last week, I contrasted the indictment of Nebraska Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, who may go to jail for (allegedly) lying to the FBI about $30,000 in campaign donations, with Anthony Fauci, who will never face punishment for his perjury about funding the Wuhan lab. Commenter “AFG Vet” made this comment, which I fear is prescient.

Comment at AOS re Campaign Finance.JPG

Sol Wachtler famously stated that a District Attorney can get a Grand Jury to indict a ham sandwich. Lavrentiy Beria is alleged to have told Stalin, “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.”

Remember how Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a hyper-partisan Democrat District Attorney in 2014 for the “crime” of using his gubernatorial veto power? The charges were ultimately dropped, but they served their purpose in that Perry was tarnished for having been “criminally indicted”, thus killing any future presidential viability.

I decided to search for news stories about FEC investigations and campaign finance violations. I found plenty, and you’ll not be surprised to find out who is being targeted:

FEC: Lahmeyer violated campaign finance laws, missed response deadline [The Norman Transcript – 9/28/2021]

Jackson Lahmeyer is an America-First Republican running for US Senate in Oklahoma.

FEC questions GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert over suspected personal use of campaign funds [Yahoo News – 8/18/2021]

Lauren Boebert is a gun-toting America-first Republican Congresswoman from Colorado.

Tenn. Senator Brian Kelsey calls federal indictment against him a ‘political witch hunt’

Before running for Congress, Brian Kelsey sponsored the amendment to the Tennessee state constitution that prohibits a state income tax. His enemies have never forgotten or forgiven him for that.

Giuliani associate Lev Parnas found guilty on campaign finance charges [Yahoo News – 10/22/2021]

Rudy Giuliani is a Republican and loyal Trump supporter.

Postmaster General Investigated Over Possible Campaign Finance Violations [NY Times – 6/03/2021]

The Justice Department is investigating the postmaster general, Louis DeJoy, over possible violations of campaign finance laws while he was running a company and building a reputation as a top Republican donor, his spokesman said on Thursday.

Louis DeJoy is a Republican appointed by Donald Trump.

I’ve tried to find any recent stories about Democrats under investigation or indictment. The only non-Republican I can find is Abhiji Das, who ran for Congress in Massachusetts as an “Independent Democrat” (e.g. the conservative choice) against an incumbent Democrat, Lori Trahan.
Former U.S. Congressional Candidate Indicted for Federal Election Campaign Act Violations and False Statements. [US Justice Dept – 6/29/2021]

Our friend AFG Vet is probably correct. We should expect the floodgates to open further, with our hyper-politicized FEC and Justice Department targeting Republicans and conservatives they think they can disqualify with corrupt investigations and indictments.

I am going to presume that every allegation, investigation, and indictment against Republican candidates in 2022 and 2024 are political stunts. My give-a-damn threshold is “Would a Democrat be in trouble for this?” And we all know the answer to that question.

Democrats, the media, and their Deep State allies are likely going to use “campaign finance violations” as their “Culture of Corruption” reboot in the next two elections. Not only should we not buy into it out of some sense of principle or morality, but we need to be ready to mock Conservative, Inc. when they predictably take up the cause of defeating conservatives who are “tarnished by scandal.”
