Supporting terrorism

The news is out: [For the second time in four days, Giants principal owner Charles Johnson released a statement regarding a political contribution he made in the run-up to the 2020 election, this time announcing he has requested that the contribution be returned.
Johnson and his wife, Ann, have asked U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert to refund the contributions they made to her campaign last September. Boebert was elected to her seat in November.
Boebert, a Republican and a QAnon supporter from Colorado who was elected last year, has come under fire for tweeting Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s location during the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and disagreeing with police over metal detectors that members of Congress were asked to walk through before subsequent sessions.
The Johnsons each donated the maximum $2,800 to Boebert on Sept. 23, 2020.]

It’s amazing how many corporations are providing bribes to elected officials. For a minute, I thought there was a RICO act. Merely demanding their contributions back doesn’t absolve these companies from the crime of supporting terrorism; they should be prosecuted.

In United States law, providing material support for terrorism is a crime prohibited by the USA PATRIOT Act and codified in title 18 of the United States Code, sections 2339A and 2339B.
