“Creepy Porn Lawyer” Now in The Market for Bankruptcy Protection

The one-time potential presidential candidate has been figuratively relegated to the realm of bus fare and canned beans.

Michael Avenatti

Of all of the harebrained characters that have come through the “resisntance’s” revolving door of buffoons, none was quite as bizarre as Michael Avenatti.

The “creepy porn lawyer”, a nickname given to Avenatti by television host Tucker Carlson, found fame at the side of adult film actress Stormy Daniels.  Daniels was in the midst of attempting to revive her risqué career, with the help of a wild and sordid tale of serving as a mistress for Donald Trump, when Avenatti thrust himself into the spotlight ahead of the porn actress.

From there, the circus grew ever-more bizarre, with Avenatti almost always front and center…even going so far as to hint at a possible career in politics after it was all over.

Now, however, the fame-seeking attorney’s outlook has turned far more grim.

The Los Angeles Times reports Avenatti filed for bankruptcy ahead of a scheduled appearance before a federal judge in California Friday, where he was expected to testify on Eagan Avenatti’s financial situation. Jason Frank, an attorney and former partner in the firm, accused Avenatti of attempting to shield legal fees from creditors amid the company’s bankruptcy proceedings.

“Who cares? Old firm that we have not operated under for a very long time,” Avenatti saidof the bankruptcy filing to the Times. “We want to ensure the proper distribution of assets to creditors — it means nothing to our current law practice. Onward and upward.”

And it gets worse…

The filing puts Avenatti’s planned testimony on hold. An attorney for Frank said in a statement that Avenatti’s testimony would have “exposed” the television lawyer’s “financial shenanigans.”

“That Mr. Avenatti would try something so desperate speaks volumes about how bad the evidence is against him,” said attorney Eric George.

At this time, Mr. Avenatti is still representing Ms. Daniels, despite the significant shortcomings of his personal life.

THE NUMBERS ARE IN: Florida has Lowest COVID Rate in the Nation

Well, would you look at that.

If Governor RonDesantis isn’t planning to shove this in everyone’s face for a while, we’d be surprised.

Florida, a state that has been the bane of the liberals’ existence in recent months due to their freedom-first coronavirus precautions, now get to gloat.  And bigly.

In mid-August, Florida was averaging about 25,000 new cases a day, or about 116 for every 100,000 residents. That was the worst rate in the U.S. — and one of the worst in the world. Awash in the hypercontagious Delta variant, the Sunshine State became one of the epicenters of the global pandemic.

During the past two months, however, Florida’s daily average has plummeted by more than 90 percent, to about 1,700 cases, or eight for every 100,000 residents. That’s roughly half of California’s current COVID rate and less than a quarter of Vermont’s. Hawaii (with nine cases for every 100,000 residents) is the only other state in single digits.

DeSantis has been absolutely adamant about allowing Floridians to choose the level of risk that they wish to take as it pertains to COVID-19, and has barred businesses and institutions from enacting vaccine or mask mandates.  This has gained him a great deal of criticism from the liberal left, who have insisted that the Governor is being reckless.

Search Warrant in Baldwin Shooting Reveals Blatant Negligence

This is unconscionable.

Published

on

Any time that someone dies on a movie set, you have to know that something has gone terribly, unforgivably wrong.

These sets are microcosms of the work of enormous and wealthy companies who are lawyered up to the gills, wading around in an industry where someone else’s misfortune is not to be squandered by the competition.

Nothing should ever go wrong on a movie set, if not for these simple facts alone.

That is why the latest details in the shooting death of a cinematographer last week are so damning.

The crew member responsible for overall safety on the set of Rust has admitted he didn’t properly check the gun that Alec Baldwin fired on October 21 and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

“During an interview with David Halls, when Affiant asked David about the safety protocol on set in regards to firearms, he advised, ‘I check the barrel for obstructions, most of the time there’s no live fire, she [Hannah] opens the hatch and spins the drum, and I say cold gun on set,’” reveals an affidavit successfully submitted by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office for a new search warrant issued today (read the search warrant here).

“David advised when Hannah showed him the firearm before continuing rehearsal, he could only remember seeing three rounds,” the filing adds, noting the interaction that afternoon last week between the First AD and armorer Hannah Gutierrez.

And then…

“He advised he should have checked all of them, but didn’t, and couldn’t recall if she spun the drum,” the affidavit bluntly states of the crew member who has emerged at the core of this tragedy.

No charges have yet to be filed in response to the incident, but prosecutors have made it very clear that they haven’t ruled it out.
