Dems say it's a non-scandal that a candidate for office was performing sex acts on video in exchange for money because while it may be unsavory, it's not illegal.

But lawyers say that in fact, the Virginia prostitution statute makes such conduct a crime.…
She performed specific sex acts with her husband when people online paid her to. The prostitution "statute is very clear, you cannot for money or its equivalent perform sex acts,” a lawyer said. “It doesn’t matter who’s paying for the act, if it’s an observer or the recipient.”
She could also potentially be charged with a crime for deliberately causing hotel workers to see her in action against their will in order to get a thrill. She said if people paid enough, she'd trick room service into walking in on her.
Will she be charged with a crime? The prosecutor in her jurisdiction--a fellow Dem with political aspirations--didn't respond to my email. 20 minutes after she read it, I got a call from Gibson's lawyer saying he was tipped off about my story by a source he wouldn't disclose.
The Dem leader of the state Senate has said the scandal makes it all the more important that people donate to Gibson, raising questions about whether lawmakers are ignoring what their own laws say.
Finally, @realdailywire can report that the AP newswire had the Susanna Gibson porn candidate story a week before the Washington Post did, tipped off Gibson about it-leading her to get the videos removed-and decided not to run the story, despite seeming obviously newsworthy.

Jennifer Freed is the poster child of 'Social Emotional Learning.' Her dissertation appears to show her violating mandatory reporting laws by concealing child abuse & pushing young teens to say they loved sex with older boys when they said the opposite…
After one teen told her that she was raped by a 19-year old at a party, leaving her crying, Freed asked: "How was it for you? I mean were you aware of your own desire?" The psychologist said when she talks to 12yos about sex, she likes to imagine how their partners "taste." Image
Freed said sex before high school was a religious experience for her and she wants to be a priestess ushering other kids through the experience. (One girl said Freed pushed her not to press charges against a perverted teacher who assaulted her.)

A Muslim group and labor union say a school district lied about pushing transgenderism

A principals union says the district publicly claimed it wasn’t indoctrinating kids, then forced staff to do it anyway and take the heat.

CAIR says it misled a court.…
The principals union said MCPS wanted preschoolers to read a book about a drag queen called “Pride Puppy,” have first graders read a “difficult and unengaging” book called “Intersection Allies,” and have 2nd graders read a book about an autistic girl who “identifies as trans.”
MCPS said that it was simply using LBTQ books as examples of literature to study English, but internal documents “contradict the overarching messaging and seem to support the explicit teaching of gender and sexual identify,” the union wrote.

NYC will pay up to $2M per person to minorities who failed an old teachers exam, saying the test was racist for expecting teachers to be literate. It's settling despite newer teaching exams having similar disparities, dispelling the allegation.…
The case concerns a test given in the 1990s. Since then, a test called Praxis has been the standard for teachers. It also had huge racial disparities, so New York went to a more subjective one called edTPA. But blacks also failed that one twice as often!
The tests are very easy and essentially evaluate whether teachers could pass the K-12 class they'd be teaching. The argument here is that because of "disproportionality," kids should have to be taught by teachers who don't know the material, dooming those kids to failure.

IRS targeted a conservative economist with 'largest tax investigation in the world' but came up empty. Then leaked its probe to media, which offered his policy views on taxes as evidence of guilt. Then authorities cited 'negative press' to close his bank.…
After the Panama Papers, the IRS teamed up with the UK, Netherlands, Canada, and Australia to create the "J5," an anti-financial crimes version of Five Eyes. But its first major operation raises serious concerns about its operations. It won't answer any questions, however. Image
After the IRS knew it had no evidence with which to charge Peter Schiff's bank with crimes, its top criminal official held a press conference+declared that his bank was "suspected" of crimes, called its investigation a success, and falsely took credit for shutting down the bank.

IRS targeted a conservative economist with the 'largest tax investigation in the world' but came up empty. Then leaked its investigation to the media, which offered his policy views on taxes as evidence of guilt. Then authorities cited 'negative press' to close his bank.
An int'l task force missed liberal virtue-signaler SBF in the Bahamas, but set their sights on someone who might have crossed their radar not through surreptitious criminal conduct, but appearances on conservative media. Economist Peter Schiff publicly advocated for low taxes.
Schiff ran a bank in Puerto Rico. The IRS subpoenaed every record and cannot point to a single customer, much less bank management, who committed tax fraud/money laundering using the bank. But by then, it had already boasted about its big investigation too much to come up empty.

A judge in Loudoun County today ruled against the father of the rape victim in his appeal of a disorderly conduct conviction, saying his calling a leftist activist a "bitch" could have caused her to be violent, and he therefore may have committed a crime…
“I think it incites her to violence. I think he was lucky he didn’t get slapped, let alone arrested. That’s enough” to go to trial, the judge said. A leftist activist approached Smith at the school board meeting and told him she would "ruin" him, leading him to call her a bitch.
With the officer who arrested him in the courtroom, Smith's wife broke down upon hearing those words, sobbing quietly: “Just put a family that’s been through hell through more of this… when is the healing going to begin?”
