A new report making its way across the Internet has revealed that South Bend Mayor and current Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg met privately with members of Black Lives Matter over the summer.

The meeting came about after a deadly officer-involved shooting occurred which complicated his current for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The discussions began with a conference call in July, followed by a closed-door meeting last month inside the mayor’s office. CNBC reports that Black Lives Matter activists claimed Buttigieg “brushed off their concerns about police violence in the city he has led since 2012.”

“He seemed to have already taken a side,” said Dr. Melina Abdullah, lead organizer with Black Lives Matter’s Los Angeles chapter, who participated in the phone conversation. “It did seem that he was prioritizing who he thought was important, and it didn’t seem to be black people.”

“I remember he felt very rushed, as if he wanted to check it off a box as something that he did,” Abdullah told CNBC.

According to the outlet, Buttigieg’s presidential campaign would not comment on the talks “and denied repeated requests to make the candidate available for an interview.”

Reports from CNBC say the meeting between Buttigieg and BLM folks each lasted roughly thirty minutes in length, were absolutely intended to be kept private, and had not been reported about previously.

Ever since the June death of Eric Logan, a 54-year-old black man shot and killed by Sgt. Ryan O’Neill, a white South Bend police officer, Buttigieg’s relationships with local law enforcement and the black community have both deteriorated.

The claim is that O’Neill acted in self-defense, as authorities have stated that Logan was approaching O’Neill with a knife. The body cam for the police officer was not activated before the incident took place.

Buttigieg has recently hired a black management director to help undo some of the damage he’s done to his relationship with this very important demographic, which is much needed, seeing as he’s only polling at 2 percent with registered black voters.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
