NC Democrat Who Slammed Coronavirus Program Received Millions From It

Published

on

North Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Cal Cunningham was a rather outspoken hater of the coronavirus stimulus package, but it seems that his criticisms weren’t enough to get him to forego allowing his company to receive $2 million in taxpayer dollars from the Paycheck Protection Program, which he claimed “harms communities.”

Funny how many of these individuals on the left will slam a program like this, but secretly put their hands out for it when they think no one is watching.

Here’s more on this from The Free Beacon:

Trending: Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

WasteZero, a Raleigh-based environmentalist trash service, obtained between $1 and $2 million in PPP funding on May 3, data released by the Small Business Administration on Monday show. Cunningham earned about $400,000 in 2019 in his role as the company’s general counsel and vice president. He has repeatedly criticized the federal program, which aims to support small businesses struggling with coronavirus shutdowns. Just two months after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican effort to bankroll the depleting fund in April, Cunningham called the program “unacceptable,” saying it “harms communities.”

“For PPP loans to have ‘generally missed the industries and areas most heavily impacted by COVID-19′ is unacceptable,” he said in a tweet. “Leaving behind small businesses—and disproportionately those that are Black- and Latino-owned—harms communities.”

The former state legislator “supports [WasteZero’s] outreach to municipal and state leaders,” according to an archive of the company’s website. Cunningham also has stock options and a convertible note of up to $50,000 tied to the company, according to his candidate financial report. Cunningham told reporters that he was still working for the company in February. He has since been removed from WasteZero’s website and the company does not publicly acknowledge any legal representation on its site. Neither Cunningham nor WasteZero responded to requests for comment about PPP or the candidate’s role in the company.

Cunningham’s legal career has provided his political aspirations a large boost. He started his Senate bid back in 2019 by providing a big, fat loan for his campaign in the total of $200,000, just before winning the Democratic Party primary back in March with a whopping 57 percent of the vote.

As you might expect, Cunningham is an ardent critic of President Trump, slamming his Paycheck Protection Program for “refusing to discloses which companies are getting the money.”

The hypocrisy here is pretty obvious. Cunningham is trying to slam the program out of one corner of his mouth, while benefiting from it out of the other. No matter how you cut it, this is just wrong.

Voters need to start holding their candidates responsible for not actually practicing what they preach.

Biden White House Limiting Press Access By Requiring $170 Covid-19 Testing Fees (Details)

If President Trump did anything remotely close to what Biden is doing regarding limiting the press’ access to him, he would’ve been impeached a third time. Must be nice to have the mainstream media on your side! From New York Post: WASHINGTON — The White House is imposing a new $170 COVID-19 testing fee on reporters who want to access the West Wing, in what critics say is the latest step that constrains press coverage of President Biden. The Biden administration already imposed sweeping restrictions, including capping at 80 the number of pre-approved journalists who are able to access White House grounds on a given day — each of whom must take a COVID-19 rapid test before 1 p.m. CONTINUED: Under former President Donald Trump, any reporter with a “hard pass” was able to breeze past the White House gates at any time and without taking a coronavirus test. But few abused the privilege due to peer pressure to limit visits. The latest restrictions were announced in an on-the-record email from White House Correspondents’ Association President Zeke Miller, who is a reporter for The Associated Press.

Anybody who believes that police officers are doing anything other than keeping our streets safe and arresting criminals is completely delusional. All you have to do, you know, if you don’t want to be shot by a cop, is cooperate with instructions. Why is that such a difficult concept for liberals to understand? From The Daily Wire: Los Angeles County’s new top prosecutor has made another controversial move that has angered local law enforcement unions. According to FOX 11, “Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is under scrutiny after he hired a public defender who helped with his campaign to a high-ranking prosecutor position in his administration.” The outlet reports that Tiffany Blacknell “has in the past posted anti-police comments on social media,” which first surfaced last year. CONTINUED: Investigative reporter Bill Melugin posted screenshots of Ms. Blacknell’s previous comments disparaging law enforcement to Twitter earlier this week. Blacknell has referred to LAPD officers as “barbarians” and called for the abolition of prisons. Melugin also shared a photograph of Blacknell posing with D.A. Gascón and another showing Blacknell donning a t-shirt that read, “The Police Are Trained To Kill Us.” According to Melugin, “the former public defender posted on Facebook during the series of looting[s] that took place in May 2020 that she herself was a looter during the 1992 Rodney King riots.” https://twitter.com/BillFOXLA/status/1364787696418217988?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1364787696418217988%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us https://twitter.com/NiggaTheory/status/1306977001857638400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306977001857638400%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fl-a-s-new-controversial-d-a-hires-prosecutor-who-suggested-cops-are-trained-to-kill-us
