Trump campaign sent to collections after unpaid security bills -- and other cities could follow

It is about time for someone to start suing this deadbeat

It is official, former President Donald Trump's campaign has been sent to collections for refusing to pay his security bills.

Raw Story has been following the complicated issue of the security debate since Trump entered official. The disagreement is that Trump's campaign believes that he shouldn't have to pay for any additional security because he's covered by the Secret Service. The problem with that is that the Secret Service is assigned to protect Trump, not run the security at a political event.

When Trump held a rally that needed police to direct traffic, crews to do overtime to scan for weapons at the doors, patrol the venue site or even remove protesters, those were local officers who Trump's campaign should have paid for.

It was reported by the Albuquerque Journal in October that their city sent Trump an invoice for $211,175.94 for barricades and overtime for officers to be on hand for the event. At last check, that hadn't been paid along with the several other cities.

I know that trump stiffed El Paso for a ton of money. What a deadbeat

White House Reverses Trump Policy Discriminating Against Trans Homeless People

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced on Thursday that transgender people will be shielded from discrimination in homeless shelters that receive federal funding, rescinding a proposal made by the Trump administration in July that would have allowed shelters to turn away trans people.

“Access to safe, stable housing — and shelter — is a basic necessity,” HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge said in a statement. “Unfortunately, transgender and gender non-conforming people report more instances of housing instability and homelessness than cis-gender people. Today, we are taking a critical step in affirming HUD’s commitment that no person be denied access to housing or other critical services because of their gender identity. HUD is open for business for all.”

The agency said it will fully uphold the 2016 Equal Access Rule guaranteeing LGBTQ+ people equal access to federally funded shelters and facilities. The Trump administration proposal that would have allowed shelters to turn away trans people was supposed to go into effect this month. However, HUD effectively voided it in February when President Joe Biden halted all last-minute Trump administration maneuvers, including the proposed rule change.

LGBTQ+ advocates widely cheered Thursday’s HUD annoucenemt, saying it was confirmation that Biden and Fudge are staying good on the administration’s promise to protect trans people against housing discrimination.

An Asterisk on Those Huge GOP Fundraising Reports

60% to 80% of the amount raised went to pay the fundraiser
https://politicalwire.com/2021/04/21/an-asterisk-on-those-huge-gop-fundraising-reports/

Two of the leading Republican firebrands in Congress touted big fundraising hauls as a show of grassroots support for their high-profile stands against accepting the 2020 election results.”

“But new financial disclosures show that Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) relied on an email marketing vendor that takes as much as 80 cents on the dollar. That means their headline-grabbing numbers were more the product of expensively soliciting hardcore Republicans than an organic groundswell of far-reaching support.”
