Russian Intern Applicant: Adam Kinzinger Dated Me, Asked For Photo ‘Without Underwear,’ Then I Got Intimidating Calls
by Patriot Editor March 16, 2021
Via National File.
https://conservativeplaylist.com/2021/0 ... ing-calls/

Republican Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s office offered an internship to a Russian immigrant beauty queen who met Kinzinger through her internship application. She then dated Kinzinger for about four months and sent Kinzinger racy photos at his request, according to extensive communications between the woman and a NATIONAL FILE source. The woman, Olga Kambod, provided sexually charged and volatile 2018 text messages between herself and a phone number that matches Kinzinger’s former phone number on publicly available records. Kambod also provided emails from Kinzinger’s congressional staff discussing internship duties.

Hearsay via a garbage newspaper must always be taken as gospel.

Idk if it's hearsay if they have plenty of evidence with texts and emails, but whatever.

I don't really see anything wrong in the texts, the phone call stuff is hearsay.

Here's Olga's LinkedIn profile .. awfully blank for someone looking for high powered work and internships:

Notice that now that Kinzinger voted to impeach Trump, he's an enemy and he's okay to go after. In2 rarely criticizes Republicans, but traitors against Trump are fair game.

I was trying to be an equal opportunity criticizer, haha. If a Rep does something that sucks, I will call them out too. Deal? Will you do the same?

Plenty of us have been piling on Cuomo. I don't think it's a problem calling something that sucks something that sucks, regardless of the Democrat or Republican affiliation of the person doing something that sucks.

You can't do dumb illegal stuff, you will get caught eventually.

Former Florida Senator Arrested For Violating Election Laws
BY ISABEL VAN BRUGEN March 19, 2021 Updated: March 19, 2021
https://www.theepochtimes.com/former-fl ... 21-03-19-1

Former Republican senator in Florida, Frank Artiles, was charged Thursday with campaign finance violations related to last year’s Miami-Dade state senate race, authorities said.

Artiles, 47, who resigned in 2017 after making racially inflammatory remarks toward colleagues, was charged with three criminal counts involving a sham candidate intended to siphon votes away from a Democratic incumbent.

How's this for a quote from ancient Rome - via a friends FB page. Those Romans knew a thing or two!

"Democracy destroys itself because it abuses its right to freedom and equality. Because it teaches its citizens to consider audacity as a right, lawlessness as a freedom, abrasive speech as equality, and anarchy as progress." Isocrates (436-338 BC)

Second hand info, always a risk.

The misattribution in full (although it's not entirely dissimilar):

A falsified quote invented during the 2010 financial crisis. [1]

Isocrates' actual, more nuanced, quote runs as follows:

Those who directed the state in the time of Solon and Cleisthenes did not establish a polity which … trained the citizens in such fashion that they looked upon insolence as democracy, lawlessness as liberty, impudence of speech as equality, and licence to do what they pleased as happiness, but rather a polity which detested and punished such men and by so doing made all the citizens better and wiser.

Wow. I hope she hasn't sent them a bunch of money! Or worse yet, that she's part of an ongoing giving campaign.

Poor trees. And that's only one person's propaganda.

I know she has given them money and yes, it’s next to impossible to get off their list. We have been reading about ways to stop it. If it isn’t first class mail and you put “Return to sender” on it they just throw it away. My wife started writing stuff on then and putting return to sender on them before we figured out that was a waste of time. A lot of them come with self addressed envelopes so you can send them money. My wife wrote a little paragraph and copied it that said something to the effect “We are on Social Security and cannot afford to give money. Please take us off your mailing list” She figured insulting them wouldn’t get the desired results. So far it hasn’t slowed down the mountain of propaganda she gets every day. I think she lives for that mail. If she isn’t reading that she is reading FOX News web site.
