The news is out: [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.
Orlando Magic team owner Dan DeVos — the brother-in-law of outgoing secretary of education Betsy DeVos — who gave $2.28 million. Johnson also gave $35,000 to bipartisan groups and $5,200 to Democrats.]
As explained in my book “Dysfunctional humans”, politicians campaign nonstop from election to election, while collecting bribes in between. And the biggest lie is telling voters that their votes count.
