The founder of a national charter school network who once served as a White House adviser under President Barack Obama has pleaded guilty to a charge alleging he stole $218,000 from the network to get a lower interest rate on a multi-million-dollar Manhattan apartment. Seth Andrew, 42, a founder of Democracy Prep, entered the plea in Manhattan federal court to wire fraud, admitting that he moved money in 2019 from the charter schools network to other bank accounts without authorization.

Interesting comments on the photos of the apartment. Small bedrooms, narrow kitchen. Brits don’t understand the market value of an address on Park. Location, location, location. Especially for an Obama arriviste...

And if a Trump advisor had taken a small pumpkin spice latte from a nonprofit, CNN and MSDNC and the rest of the RAT infested media whores would cover it 24/7. DM may be far left, but at least they report the miscreants of the left.

Who wants to buy a Manhattan apartment real cheap? Seller needs to sell by April. Seller will be moving to a gated community.

I quickly read a Fox article a couple of hours on this scammer.....and here is the photo put in that story by Fox. They only other photo in the Fox story, is of Obama. A closer reading ......shows that Fox is really weird. The photo, in a story about "Seth Andrew" pleading guilty, is illustrated by the above-linked photo......but closer reading shows that the caption says that the photo is Damian Williams.....whose name does not appear in the story text anywhere. ???????? No photo of "Seth Andrew" in the Fox story. So who is Damian Williams and why is photo? But, several photos of a white guy.....Seth the DM story. Here's the link to the Fox story. I wonder if Fox will correct it at some point? I scanned the DM intro, had already quickly read the Fox story on same topic.....and thought I had seen a photo of the scammer, as a black man. I wonder who in the heck this Damian Williams guy is?

Our media will not mention that he was an Obama advisor, even if they are allowed to run the story. Daily Mail UK does serve a small purpose in life because it does not have most of our PC filters. I will not mention the lack of editorial filters.

In early 1918, when World War I entered its final year, the H1N1 influenza A virus infected millions of people, causing the Spanish flu pandemic. By April 1920, after four waves and almost 100 million deaths, the pandemic ended. H1N1 became much less deadly and caused only ordinary seasonal flu. It had become an endemic virus.

I almost feel sorry for Joe Biden. The emphasis, I hasten to add, is on the adverb. Perhaps, if he didn’t make me feel thoroughly sorry for the United States of America, my sympathy for him would be unalloyed. But even many in Biden’s own party are aghast at his performance as president. It’s almost a matter of smell, of that sixth sense that alerts sensitive souls to impending disaster. Animals somehow know when an earthquake is coming, even before the ground begins to tremble. The far-left activist Stacey Abrams is well endowed with those antennae, which is why she invented “scheduling issues” and gave the president’s speech in Atlanta

The frustration was especially pronounced this past week after Biden’s push for voting rights legislation effectively stalled, intensifying concerns in his party that fundamental democratic principles are at risk and reinforcing a broader sense that the president is faltering at a moment of historic consequence.

By next November, the economy will be a political dry hole for Democrats as it’s very unlikely that inflation will ease, and chances are getting better for the double-whammy of inflation and a slowing economy.

There is no way to recover national political standing once a politician becomes a popular butt of humor, a punchline in a degrading joke.

Now, despite Joe Biden’s unlikely intentions to run for a second term, Hillary is back again – as if ambition would ever let her leave. Five years younger than Biden, Hillary has no intention of being an old soldier who just fades away. Ever since her college years at Wellesley, she has harbored political ambitions. And when her husband landed in the White House, her dream of becoming the first female president of the United States took serious hold.
