Nina Turner had questionable issues with Our Revolution




Nina better hope Shontel Brown doesn't bring up Turner's disastrous tenure as president of Our Revolution, where the money came up funny and the board had to stop her from hiring her anti-immigrant friend while fearing she intended to use OR to further her own political ambitions

POLITICO:


In a statement out Tuesday, Turner, the group’s president, noted that the comments by Tezlyn Figaro are not held by Turner, or by Our Revolution. On Fox News last year, Figaro cited President Donald Trump‘s “leadership” on the travel ban and said, “We are sick and tired of immigrants coming into the country and getting benefits that Americans do not get … what I’m seeing is not paying taxes, what I’m seeing is getting a lot of freebies that Americans do not get.”

Those comments and others — a month after Trump’s election in 2016 she tweeted “Please! #buildthewall” —have upset many in the organization. The Our Revolution board stopped Turner from installing Figora as the group’s chief of staff.




https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/22/our-revolution-sanders-turner-figaro-603410

Anti-immigrant, supporter of Trump policies, & Fox News regular, Tezlyn Figaro was personally hired by Turner as OR's COS.

THIS IS WHO TURNER pals around with.
There is a reason why Turner never speaks ill of Republicans. Yet damns every Democrat trying to hold the line against the annhiliation of American Democracy.

There's a reason Turner's AMARE PR GROUP is supported by RU compromised MERCURY Global Lobbyists, whose CEO Kirill GORNCHENKO was a RU Putin associate of Paul Manafort.
There is a reason Turner hired Manafort's Ukraine electoral companion, Tad DeVine, to aid her future campaigns.







********


Hey, HELLO SOMEBODY 🤪? Can you tell us what Nina Turner's real game is here?

That's some shady bowl of shit we're being fed.
What's up with this Ms Turner?

Could SOMEBODY Also ask if Nina plans to maje her home in OH to address the need of those constituents, OR will she abandon them to go back home to Maryland?

Would be kinda good for OH-11 to know if they'll be represented locally, or not.

1. So, Nina gets to find out what it is like to have her own "sins," "lies," and tactics come back

to BITE her. Sometimes karma shows signs of making its rendezvous.

16. No one really cares

Outside of a small internet bubble that hates her.

People are worried about Covid, healthcare, putting food on the table, climate change, etc.

Seriously. No one except an internet few. Notice progressives stopped bothering in these threads weeks ago. They're just the same things spammed over and over and over.

Did she say something about a bowl of something? Can't recall. I'm sure someone will remind me.

20. "Progressives". Is your post projection? If you're talking

about the “internet few” then we’ve seen that disappointed Bernie fans are the translation for “progressives.” The rest of the world has moved on from his losses. That’s why Nina sticks out like a bitter sore thumb. “Corporate” this and that … yawn. Nobody cares about that drivel.

32. Seriously.

"Progressive" = someone who thinks Teddy Roosevelt/FDR/LBJ were anti-capitalist democratic socialists and that Bernie Sanders was the only one continuing that legacy, that the Democratic establishment are hopelessly corrupt elites with the same economic policies as Republicans and despise working and middle classes. Anti-establishment with the establishment being the Democratic Party as the true roadblock to progress. Us (pure, righteous) vs Them (corrupt, evil, immoral).

They really should've called themselves neoprogressives, less confusing. If was fashionable for a while, but as you say, why Nina sticks out like a bitter sore thumb.

48. Well said, betsuni. Nina is not a progressive. They are all building a "brand" but now

the brand is based on proven losing lies and strategies. The Republicans love the brand builders, though. They love how they attack Democrats.

I like your nickname...neoprogressives. It fits exactly, and I might use it if that's okay!

Tune in for the press conference tomorrow at 11:00 AM at Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Cleveland. This is more than a small internet bubble. They, and probably those in that "small internet bubble" don't hate Nina Turner, but all want the truth to come out.

40. Most people worried about Covid, healthcare, food on the table, climate change, etc. want

legislators to do the actual job, which is building coalitions and passing legislation to help them. They're not dreaming of a revolution, or transforming the party because they think Democrats are corrupt neoliberal corporate elites, or interested in their representatives pledging no-compromise allegiance to slogans as purity tests.

The ones who want all that nonsense are only a small internet bubble.

55. Symph, shouldn't character and trustworthiness TOP the caring list?

Isn't ignoring the need to choose for good character and judgement where the trumpists and those who were tricked by liars into voting against Hillary went terribly wrong?

* Identify honest, trustworthy people first.

* Then identify people of good judgement. (Isn't refusing to vote Democrat a complete weed-out?)

* THEN choose among the winners someone worthy of support.

Just think! It'd be raining falling bad actors if more people did.

But only briefly.

33. She founded "Amare Public Affairs" in late September 2020, and immediately paid herself...

....an annual salary of about $285,000. That lobbying group was backed financially by Mercury.

https://disclosures-clerk.house.gov/public_disc/financial-pdfs/2020/10039433.pdf

From September 28 through the end of 2020, she was paid a salary of $73,729.13, which extrapolates to an annual salary of $286,288.

She also worked for another lobbying group, "Action for a Progressive Future" and another "Business Consulting" company, "Turner's World Enterprises LLC".

Okay, Nina Turner, I guess that's as good a reason as any other for your obvious Dem hatred over the years.

What a spiteful wreck she is. In that video she never mentions the republicans, the real enemies of the people. All her hate is directed straight at Democrats.

She's going to lose and she'll just get worse.
