Giants, Diamondbacks owners donated to pro-QAnon Rep. Lauren Boebert

The team owners for the San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks donated max contributions to Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a QAnon supporter who tweeted the location of House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi during the U.S. Capitol attack and has clashed with police, according to FEC filings reviewed by the SFGATE.

Giants principal owner Charles B. Johnson and his wife, Ann, each donated the maximum allowable amount of $2,800 for a congressional candidate. Diamondbacks owner Earl “Ken” Kendrick and his wife, Randy, also donated $2,800 each.

The donations are from September, two months before election day. The report of their previous donations comes after MLB suspended all political contributions in the wake of the U.S. Capitol riot.

The contributions by the Johnsons are dated Sept. 23, per SFGate. Johnson, 88, has deep ties with the Republican party. He has contributed $10,995,500 to Republican campaigns or super PACs that support Republicans since 2016, per an October investigation by ESPN and FiveThirtyEight. His net worth is nearly $4.9 billion, according to Forbes, and he’s the second-richest owner in MLB.

This should cause major issues in San Francisco.

3. Yeah -- I can't imagine how he walks back this donation

His actions are 180° counter to the beliefs of the team, most of the fan base, the city, the region, and a lot of the country.

How clueless can you be?

Boebert is poison. Terrible decision but he'll have to live with the consequences.
