Eric Holder In Serious Trouble, Caught Abusing the Law To Use Gambling As ‘Fundraising Tool’

Published

on

Eric Holder is finding himself at the center of yet another scandal. The scandalous former Attorney General for the Obama administration is finding himself at the center of an ethics complaint filed against the current Democratic candidate for Ohio attorney general, Steve Dettelbach.

The ethics complaint alleges Dettelbach abused the law using gambling as a fundraising tool. The charges of gambling center around Dettelbach’s campaign and the decision to raffle off a meet-and-greet opportunity with Holder.

The now-defunct fundraiser page blared – “The former Attorney General is coming to Ohio to stump for Steve and we want you to be there! You have until July 23 to be entered into a chance to meet the former AG, so you’ll want to act quickly.” A donation of $5, $10, or $50 bought Obama fans of former Obama administration an opportunity to meet and rub shoulders with the former U.S. attorney general.

Yet it appears that neither of these lawmen knew the law, or they simply did not care what the law stated thinking themselves above it, and the law for whatever reason did not apply to them. However, it seems the two men will get the opportunity to get better acquainted with the law as Mark Miller, a conservative citizen and small business owner from Cincinnati, just filed a complaint with the Ohio Elections Committee through Finney Law Firm. The complaint alleges Dettelbach is guilty of operating a “scheme of chance” against the law.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer

“Mark Miller, a citizen activist, says Dettelbach’s fundraiser was actually an ‘illegal scheme of chance.’ Miller filed the complaint with the help of Finney Law Firm, which has represented Republicans in previous legal challenges.

At church picnics, school fundraisers and charity auctions, Ohioans raising money will raffle off everything from all-expense paid vacations to baskets of sports trinkets.

But Democrat Steve Dettelbach offering a chance to meet former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder? That could be a problem. Ohio law largely prohibits political campaigns from running raffles.

‘I would urge him not to have a raffle because it is probably illegal,’ said Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, a Republican, told The Enquirer. Conducting an illegal raffle is a misdemeanor offense under Ohio law.

Holder is the guest speaker at a Cincinnati fundraiser for Dettelbach Friday at the Queen City Club. The hosts include Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper, former Kroger executive Paul Heldman, and former state Sen. Eric Kearney.

Tickets range in price from $250 to $2,500, but Dettelbach’s campaign is offering supporters an opportunity to meet Holder for much less – as little as a $5 donation.

‘Enter now to win a chance to meet Eric Holder!’ reads a Democratic fundraising website under the banner ‘Steve Dettelbach for Attorney General.’

Dettelbach’s campaign says the opportunity to meet Holder doesn’t qualify as a raffle and isn’t illegal.

It appears the Democratic campaign is not to be questioned regarding their flagrant disregard for the law either based on the response received from Dettelbach spokeswoman Liz Doherty. She states in response to the FEC complaint – ‘This is a by-invitation political fundraiser, and we wanted to give supporters the opportunity who might not otherwise have it to meet the 82nd attorney general of the United States. Anyone who questions this is making a ridiculous political attack.”

The Associated Press reports –

“According to the complaint, Dettelbach’s campaign paid ActBlue, based in Somerville, Massachusetts, to operate the contest. It offered chances for a spot at Friday’s fundraiser with Holder at Cincinnati’s Queen City Club for as little as a $5 donation. Tickets run $250 to $2,500.

The complaint alleges neither ActBlue nor Dettelbach’s campaign are registered as the type of authorized charitable organization that may legally operate a raffle under Ohio law. Among authorized entities are churches and other religious organizations, fraternal organizations and veterans’ groups.

Phil Richter, executive director of the Ohio Elections Commission, told the Cincinnati Enquirer this week that the raffle risked potential criminal violations. He said he normally advises candidates to check with their county prosecutor before launching one.”

Yet political campaigns have been warned about utilizing raffles as a campaign fundraising tool in the past and Ohio law clearly prohibits political campaigns from conducting games of chance. Given Dettelbach’s history with the law and his current candidacy for attorney general of Ohio, one would think he would know the laws that govern the state or at the very least how to look them up. The law is conveniently posted at OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov for their perusal.

A short history of Dettelbach’s legal career –

  1. Assistant U.S. Attorney in Cleveland, Ohio from 2003 to 2006
  2.  United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio during former President Barack Obama’s two terms in the White House for over six years before resigning in 2016
  3. 2006 until his appointment by Obama in 2009 and back again in 2016 to his current position – Partner at BakerHostetler in Cleveland, Ohio
  4. Appointed by Governor Ted Strickland to serve on the Ohio Ethics Commission

Yet this man claims to have not known the law or even known to look up the laws governing the practice of raffles by political campaigns in an election campaign?

As the Washington Examiner notes – “Whenever a candidate for attorney general, whenever a politician applies to become the top cop of a state, his faithfulness to the law becomes a determining factor. If Dettelbach wants to be a lawman, Dettelbach should start by convincing the Ohio electorate that, you know, he is ready to follow the law. So far, the candidate hasn’t even admitted to the possibility of a screw-up.

Holder is slated to appear with Dettelbach tonight, and frankly, it’s not a good look at this point.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
