County Contradicts Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Says State Authorized Vaccines for Rich Community

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis‘ claim that he played no role in the early distribution of COVID-19 vaccines to an affluent community has reportedly been contradicted by county officials. A Miami Herald article published last Wednesday revealed that over 1,200 residents of Key Largo’s wealthy Ocean Reef Club community had been vaccinated while doses were in short supply in mid-January. During a Thursday press conference, DeSantis insisted that the clinic “was not a site that we were involved in,” while calling the article a “major failure” and a “poorly executed hit piece.” Local county officials and a spokesperson for Baptist Health Systems, the company that distributed the vaccine doses, contradicted the Republican governor’s denial in an article published by the Herald

George Conway, Other Lincoln Project Co-Founders, Call Group to Shut Down, Fight Trumpism In Other Ways

Lincoln Project co-founders and prominent Republican strategists urged the organization to cease operations on Monday, after a New York Times report detailed profit-motivated plans discussed among the group’s leadership following its establishment, as well as the significant payouts they have received since then. The newspaper’s investigation found that the Lincoln Project, a Republican political action committee that gained popularity for its anti-Trump media campaign ahead of the November election, transferred roughly $27 million of its donations to a consulting firm operated by co-founder Reed Galen. The report noted that Galen and four other co-founders, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver and Rick Wilson, were compensated through the transfer endeavor. George Conway, an attorney and the husband of Donald Trump‘s former counselor, Kellyanne

Georgia Begins Investigating Allegations of Paying College Football Players

The University of Georgia has become aware of a well-known high school football coach in its state making claims that Georgia and the University of Alabama paid football recruits hundreds of thousands of dollars to play for them. A video of Valdosta (Ga.) High Coach Rush Propst surfaced over the weekend of the coach making those allegations. The source originated from former Valdosta Touchdown Club director Michael “Nub” Nelson, who recorded Propst making these claims in May of 2020. How it leaked to the worldwide web is beyond Nelson, though. “I really don’t know,” Nelson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution after the story began leaking Monday. “I had the clips made and I guess that’s how it got out. I only

Protesters Chant ‘Convict Killer Cops’ Outside As Jury Selection for George Floyd Trial Begins

Protesters waved signs demanding “Justice for George Floyd” and to “Convict Killer Cops” as jury selection began Monday in the trial of ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin. Hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the highly fortified downtown Minneapolis courthouse where the voir dire process began in Chauvin’s trial, one of four ex-officers involved in Floyd’s May 2020 death. The process inside the courthouse was put on hold as prosecutors sought to add a third-degree murder charge to the case, but protests carried on outside. Massive banners proclaimed “the world is watching” and demanded Chauvin’s conviction on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. Speakers ranged from civil rights activists to the surviving relatives of Black men who were killed by police officers in

‘Human Error’ Causes More Than 6,000 Californians to Receive Low COVID-19 Vaccine Dose Alert

Errors in administering doses of Pfizer‘s COVID-19 vaccine caused the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to send alerts to more than 6,000 people who may have received lower dosage amounts than health officials intended. From the afternoon of February 28 through the afternoon of March 1, those who arrived at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, to get their first vaccine dose may have been administered 0.22 milliliters of the Pfizer vaccine instead of the 0.3 ml recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an official with the CDPH told Newsweek. The 0.22 ml dose amount is still within the volume deemed safe by the CDC, which advised the CDPH that any dose of Pfizer’s vaccine

Cuomo Calling For Ex-AG To Resign After Sexual Harassment Accusations Resurface Amid Current Claims

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released a statement in 2018 which called for the resignation of then-Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over a magazine article’s claims — a demand now resurfacing amid his own sexual misconduct allegations. The New Yorker magazine published a scathing article in May 2018 which laid out four women’s claims of sexual abuse at the hands of Schneiderman, a report which led to his resignation within hours. The Cuomo administration responded to the story about the self-proclaimed champion of women’s rights by immediately calling for his resignation from office. Citing a “damning patter of facts and corroboration laid out in the article,” Cuomo joined several state leaders in pushing for Schneiderman to resign. But now, almost three

Fake ‘Vaccine Exemption’ Card Proliferates on Twitter Despite COVID-19 Misinformation Ban

Twitter users are sharing links to and images of fake “vaccination exemption” cards. The cards violate the social media platform’s policies against COVID-19 misinformation. The media watchdog group Media Matters found several tweets touting the cards as a way to help people refuse vaccinations. “Under the law of informed consent I refuse any and all vaccinations!” one such card states. “I do not authorize any person, government, employer, institution, organization, [or] business to inoculate me under any circumstance! Any individual who attempts to violate my right to consent will be prosecuted under the full expense of the law.” Other such cards announce themselves as a “notice of legal right” or “advance directive for vaccines.” They often contain an image of

Fact Check: Did Biden Sign an Executive Order Allowing Incarcerated Felons to Vote?

In the aftermath of the 2020 election, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are determined to advance agendas on voting. For one, Democrats are keen on thwarting a flood of legislation proposed in 43 states that increases barriers to the polls, including reducing early voting and limiting voting by mail. President Joe Biden is standing behind congressional Democrats’ goals to expand voting access, particularly for marginalized groups. A new executive order that Biden signed Sunday in recognition of the 56th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” when state troopers in Selma, Alabama, beat and tear-gassed peaceful civil rights marchers, amplifies existing Democratic efforts to protect voters. The Claim Biden issued the Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting over the weekend

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Urges Election ‘Criminals’ to Surrender to Him for Less Prison Time

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has urged “criminals” involved in a massive voter fraud conspiracy to contact him for help in arranging reduced prison sentences. Lindell, a proponent of the baseless theory that the 2020 presidential was “stolen” from former President Donald Trump, made the remarks during an appearance on The Charlie Kirk Show podcast that was released on Friday. Lindell promised that a flood of evidence validating the theory would soon emerge, while offering to help cut deals similar to “the old mafia days” for those involved in the purported plot. “There will be a big surprise of evidence,” Lindell said. “There’s going to be whistleblowers. There’s going to be people that work within organizations that are going to come
