Phoenix police found that envelopes that Kari Lake's campaign claimed to have contained a suspicious white powder contained no powdery substance at all after they were tested by the Arizona state crime lab.

This seemed suspicious from the start. Glad to see Arizona law enforcement moved quickly to expose the bogus claim.

Repubs are such trash.

Until their base stops being trash this is the nonsense we'll have to deal with.

Don't count on that. This woman is way too ambitious to confine herself to Arizona.

Win or lose, I think she has her sights set on Washington D.C.

Agreed. She is way to deep into her lies to stop now. But it will be nice to get a break from her maga nonsense for a while.

Just imagine the fake attacks by liberals she'd have staged if she would have won.

Yeah your party wanted to elect someone into power who stages false attacks like a black actor they whined about for months. Hmm it's almost like they dont care if a white person does it. Black actors should be held to higher standard than white politicians.

What part of-

-did you miss?

13. What I read was the first envelope was tossed that reportedly had powder and a vulgar note with two additional envelopes with vulgar notes.

Here's the thing - I accept that it might be a mini Smollett. You probably still side with Smollett. But, that's how you seem to roll.

Do you accept it's bigger problem when done by the potential leader of a state instead of a C level actor on a tv show?

Of course. Does that mean you acknowledge the Smollett thing for what it was or do you still side with Jussie?

It means you'd better have a quote or link to me siding with jussie, followed by a reason your party thinks an actor doing something is worse than a potential leader doing it.

I already ceded your second point. Thank you for answering my question - you are not with Jussie.

Doesn't matter. The sin of a black actor with zero power is far greater than a white politician with immense power doing the same sin.

How convenient, to toss the evidence.

So did they know it was a hoax, or were they trying to kill their cleaning crew? I mean...you realize those are the two choices, right? Either they knew it wasn't really dangerous, or they cavalierly put their cleaning crew's' lives in danger.

Agreed???

A loud and well-deserved golf clap goes out to everyone who is dim (or dishonest) enough to act as though Jussie Smollett has anything to do with MAGAt election fraud b.s.

Seriously. You should be proud. That's a class all your own.

Bellringer is desperate to make a both sides are the same argument but his only exampke is a has been actor from years ago. It's jyst not relevant to ypday.

jprthis womn and many other GQP candidates are busy trying to rxplain their election defeat : i.e. the majptity of voters do not want ehat the GWP is tring to sell and failing miserably at it. Basically that was what happening was that a growing number of Americans weren't buying the lies that the GQP depends on to win

Negligence, incompetence, hoax. If it wasn't a hoax one of the first two descriptors I just gave apply.

I think the position ballsucker is taking is that Kari Lake should be arrested for filing a false police report. I am all for that.

That is what ballsucker is arguing, right?

Cause that is what happened to Smollett.

Cause, he "...accept[s] that it might be a mini Smollett"

What' makes it "mini?" Seems like a way bigger deal when a candidate for office does it.

#30 DoucheHurts. If the Lake campaign team filed a false police report they should be prosecuted.

See how easy that is - consistent

Once again all Bellringer default position is to deflect and give cover. They are perfectly fine with any lie or crime that comes from the MAGATS.

Hoax by a powerful political leader falls into the same category as a hoax by a nobody actor?

That's like saying george bush lying us into a 7 trillion dollar war is the same category as hugh grant lying and saying he was just giving that hooker a ride in his car.

Still not desperate enough to try to compare the actions of a US Senate Campaign that could have real world implications for others to those of a meaningless d-list celebrity.
