Nina Turner Blows Pledge Not to Take Lobbyist Money.

She calls her opponents "Corporate democrats," heavily insinuates that they are corrupt and yet........


According to Federal Election Commission records, however, the Turner campaign reported a March 31 donation of $1,000 from the director of Amare Public Affairs, a firm Turner founded last September as an offshoot of D.C.-based lobbying shop Mercury Public Affairs. And on Jan. 19, three days after her tweet, Turner accepted $250 from a partner at Mercury, per FEC filings.

A fictitious name filing recorded last October with the state of Ohio shows Mercury is the company behind Amare. That direct connection disappeared when the company’s name was replaced on April 26 with the Tampa-based “Highstake 11 LLC.” But business records with the state of Florida show Highstake 11’s only principal agent is Mercury’s CEO, Kieren Mahoney. The company withdrew its Florida registration in late June, but Ohio records still list Highstake 11 as Amare’s ultimate corporate identity.

Turner, who repeated her pledge as recently as this Monday, is still the dominant focus of Amare’s website.

1. Nina Turner is not a "Dem star."

She's a Democrat of convenience who has done nothing but trash the party and especially its leader.

3. No need to edit; I knew it was the original headline.

I just took umbrage at the notion that the odious Nina Turner could be characterized as a Democratic star.

18. A "Dem Star" does not pal-around with Jill Fucking Stein or compare Biden to a BOWL OF SHIT!!

Nina Turner is not a "Dem star."
You are correct!

A Dem-Star is someone who's loyal to the party, not someone who betrays our party by supporting and voting for Jill Fucking Stein instead of Hillary.

A Dem-Star is someone who is smart enough to support Biden over Trump (but she refused) and instead compared Biden to a "BOWL OF SHIT".

A Dem-Star is NOT someone who only runs "as" a Democrat when their disorganized "People's Party" can't get on the ballot in Ohio.

Here's Nina at some bullshit "People's Party Convention" (or something) singing the praises of Jill Stein and getting all huggy with her.

The entire youtube link is below. Jill makes her appearance near the 22-minute mark (This link will take you to the Youtube video and automatically advance to the point where she's all huggy/kissy with Jill Fucking Stein.



It's clear that Nina Turner is NOT a friend of the Democratic party. She's bitter about the Democrats choice, and in a fit of revenge-motivate anti-party retribution, she's doing her best to sabotage Hillary so that Trump will get the presidency.

She's only running "as" a Democrat this time because there wasn't enough time to get "The People's Party" on the ballot in Ohio. This time, she's using the party that she hates only as a means-to-an-end. She's grudgingly running as a Democrat.

No thank you very much. I prefer candidates who are LOYAL DEMOCRATS and who do their level best to unite and uplift the party (not divide and weaken). That serves no good purpose, does it?

When she compared Joe Biden to a "BOWL OF SHIT" she disqualified herself forever.

7. Reading more about Mercury's founder is a guy named Krili Gorenchenko

 

He was named in the Mueller Report as a foreign agent along with Manafort.

Knowing this, shouldn't Turner's AMARE PR Group then be registered with FARA, for the ties to Mercury?

This is some dark money being moved thru foreign channels into AMARE, in that case.
It appears to be the opposite of what is the core statement on her campaign mantra.

Grassroots? No Corporate? No Dark Money?

Care to explain this affiliation Mrs Turner?

8. I didn't think about that.

You're right she should be registered with FARA.

12. Since the inception of Amare in the fall of 2020, they have paid her almost $85,000 in "salary".

It's all in her financial disclosure.

She also earned almost $300,000 last year, $30,000 from Action for a Progressive Future, a lobbyist, and $30,000 from Turner's World Enterprises.

19. I know, right?!



That's a word that's misused (abused?) as often as I hear people like Nina refer to "the base" ... obviously having NO CLUE what (or who) the actual BASE of the Democratic party actually means.

The "base" doesn't mean (collectively) those who hold the furthest fringe extreme views. It's those who are LOYAL to the party, those who SUPPORT the party, those who VOLUNTEER for the party, those who DONATE to the party, those who GOTV for the party's nominees and incumbents, and those who ALWAYS VOTE for the party's candidates.

The base doesn't support Jill Fucking Stein. The base doesn't vote for Stein (over Hillary). The base doesn't compare Joe Biden to a "bowl of shit". The base doesn't refuse to vote for Biden (over Trump). The base doesn't withhold their vote because of petty squabbles or disappointment that someone wasn't nominated.

I'm not going to let people like Nina Turner hijack a word that is specific to loyal Democrats.
