Pro-Bernie Sanders Arizona Vote Recorder Was Attorney for Fast and Furious Gun Buyer

Published

on

Whatever happened to vetting those who are in charge of voting practices? Evidently, that isn’t done much anymore because the Maricopa County vote recorder in Arizona was playing fast and loose with vote-counting practices. He also just happens to be the defense attorney for an accused Mexican cartel gun straw purchaser. Not good. Oh, and he is a supporter of socialist Bernie Sanders.

Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes was the defense attorney for Manuel Celis-Acosta in 2011. Celis-Acosta was arrested for his part in the Fast and Furious government gun-running scandal. Sounds to me as if the attorney, now vote recorder, is just as shady as his cartel clientele. Breitbart has more details on this disturbing development:

The Maricopa County vote recorder employing controversial vote-counting practices was the defense attorney for an accused Mexican cartel gun straw purchaser.

Maricopa County recorder Adrian Fontes defended Manuel Celis-Acosta in 2011 after an arrest for involvement in the Fast and Furious government gun-running scandal. “Before he was elected in 2016 as Maricopa County recorder, Adrian Fontes was an attorney representing clients in narco-terrorism and firearms scandals,” Fox News reported. Celis-Acosta reportedly transferred thousands of guns to the Sinaloa Cartel. This included the firearm used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

Democrat Fontes also spoke publicly at a November 2016 event featuring Sen. Bernie Sanders and supporting Hillary Clinton.

Now Fontes faces accusations of employing corrupt vote-counting practices as Maricopa County delivered a late-breaking lead to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in the U.S. Senate race with Republican Martha McSally. McSally led the race for two days until large batches of votes in Maricopa County flipped the lead to Sinema. 

Several county Republican parties sued county recorders in the state over the vote-counting method Fontes was using. Friday, a judge delivered a resolution that gave recorders until Wednesday to resolve issues like verifying signatures of early ballots dropped at polling locations on Election Day. The Republican Party also “criticized the official for opening emergency voting centers the weekend before Tuesday’s election and for mixing disputed ballots with valid ones,” according to the report.

Arizona Republican Party chairman Jonathan Lines called out Fontes ahead of the ruling: “Such a man cannot be trusted to administer elections in Arizona. We are reviewing all legal options at this time and will continue to protect the rights of every legal voter in Arizona.”

Fontes defended Celis-Acosta during the 2011 Fast and Furious-related trial, dismissing his actions as that of a kid and not nefarious. That same year, he defended Emilia Palomina-Robles, who was charged for participation in attempting to “purchase a Stinger missile and other military weapons for a Mexican drug cartel,” according to the report. Fontes downplayed the government’s case, but ultimately the defendant was convicted and sentenced to ten years.

It seems that every time Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks she inserts her foot into her mouth.

It seems that every time Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks she inserts her foot into her mouth.

And it seems to happen every time she thinks she is saying something wise.

On Saturday she set her sights on Christopher Columbus and somehow related his holiday to Election Day.

He 29-year-old socialist could not comprehend how the man who discovered America would have a holiday but Election Day would not be.

“How is Columbus Day a holiday but Election Day not?” she wrote on Twitter.

Twitter users set her straight.

Low information voters.

Let’s not also forget that it sure didn’t take long for Ocasio-Cortez to flip the script right after she got elected.

Chicks On The Right reports:

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez spent her ENTIRE campaign RAILING against the Democratic Party’s leadership.

Well… she’s been in DC for a couple of days and yeeeah. She’s best buds with them now.

SHE’S JUST THERE TO SUPPORT THEM, Y’ALL.

WOWOWOWOWOWOW.

AMAZING.

According to The Daily Wire:

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez changed her tone toward the Democratic establishment immediately after arriving in Washington, D.C. this week after she had previously campaigned against it.

“One of the things that I admire so much about Leader Pelosi is that she comes from a space of activism and organizing and so I think she really appreciates civic engagement and really what I’m here to do is just to support the folks that are here,” Ocasio-Cortez said this week.

“Really what I’m here to do is, uh, is just to support the folks who are here,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

That was quick. RECORD TIME, AOC!

WHOA: Trump Admin Reveals BIGGEST Move Again Yet Again Acosta — ‘Permanently’

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by: Sara Palin

The drama between the Trump administration and CNN reporter Jim Acosta may not be done anytime soon as it is being reported the White House press staff are looking to have Acosta permanently banned.

The ban comes amid a legal feud between Acosta, CNN, and the White House.

Here’s how everything has gone down:

Acosta initially refused to hand over a microphone to a White House intern, resisting her attempt to retrieve it.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused Acosta of putting his hand on the intern, called the incident unacceptable, and subsequently banned him.

They took his press credentials and suspended him from covering events at the White House.

CNN and Acosta sued the Trump administration over the incident, claiming Acosta’s First and Fifth Amendment rights were violated.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly said the White House violated Acosta’s right to a due process as they pulled his media pass and denied Acosta an option to repeal his revocation.

The judge ordered the White House to immediately restore Acosta’s press credentials.

So…

The Trump administration is complying with the order and will reinstate Acosta, but they are making a move to have him permanently banned from the White House, the Daily Caller reports.

The White House sent a letter to Acosta notifying him that his pass granting him temporary access to the White House grounds would be suspended after a temporary restraining order runs its course. The letter is the latest in the fight between the White House and the CNN reporter who caused a fracas at a recent presidential press conference when he refused to give up the microphone.

Judge Timothy J. Kelly issued an injunction Friday morning ordering the White House to reinstate Acosta’s credentials, saying his Fifth Amendment right to due process was violated. The judge was clear, however, that he made no ruling on whether the First Amendment right applies for any reporter to be at the White House.

According to the report, President Trump admitted he was not sure whether the administration would ultimately win the CNN lawsuit.

“We’ll see how the court rules,” the president said.

“Is it freedom of the press when somebody comes in and starts screaming questions and won’t sit down?” he added, speaking of Acosta.

Should the administration lose the lawsuit, Trump revealed his administration has a strategy.

During an interview with Fox News, Trump said the White House press team would implement new policies and rules for reporters such as turning off cameras.

“I think one of the things we’ll do is maybe turn the camera off that faces them because then they don’t have any airtime, although I’ll probably be sued for that and maybe, you know, win or lose it, who knows,” Trump said, as the Daily Caller reports.

As the legal feud continues, the Trump administration announced they would be “temporarily” reinstating Acosta’s press pass and would be complying to the order, BUT they are giving him a 14-day pass and will resume their suspension once it expires.

The Hill reports CNN is already responding to the move by requesting an emergency court hearing:

CNN on Monday requested an emergency hearing in the U.S. District Court after the White House threatened to again pull the press credentials of the network’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta.

CNN said the letter amounts to an “attempt to provide retroactive due process,” calling for a hearing on a preliminary injunction during “the week of November 26, 2018, or as soon thereafter as possible.”
