Subject: RE: Donor Vet
Good morning all,
Finance asked us to vet as potential POTUS host/donor. George Lindemann - convicted of three counts of wire fraud in 1995 and received a 33-month term in federal prison; Investigation stemmed from a federal investigation where over 50 horses were killed in a 20 year period in acts of insurance fraud; nothing new as of 5/9/16

NGP NOTES: Summary George Lindemann Jr. was a highly-ranked rider, Olympic hopeful, and heir to an $800 million fortune. In 1990 he hired Tommy "The Sandman" Burns to electrocute his horse, Charisma, in order to collect on a $250,000 insurance policy.And it gets better...
"George doesn't deserve to continue to be a punching bag. He has contributed to every Democratic presidential candidate, and no one has ever suggested that they didn't want his money," Gordon said.I wonder what the crazies over at PETA would think of this.
Indeed, Lindemann has donated generously to a slew of candidates, including U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek,U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and former presidential contender Hillary Clinton. So it's okay to cash his checks but not to give him top billing on a fundraising invite?
Here's another taste...

DeRay McKesson Tweets - Then Deletes - Claim That Virginia Shooter Was White:The Dems are gonna want to distance themselves from DeRay, right? Well... not exactly.
"Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson continued his pattern of jumping to conclusions and getting his facts wrong on Wednesday when he tweeted out to his 200,000 followers that the man who fatally shot a TV reporter and cameraman in Virginia was white."
McKesson himself has been accused of playing fast-and-loose with the facts in the past. In many of the cases he's protested - from the Michael Brown case to Freddie Gray's death to Sandra Bland's - McKesson has made claims to his large Twitter following that turned out to be false.
McKesson has become a hot commodity for several presidential campaigns. Hillary Clinton invited him to a campaign event in June. And Bernie Sanders reached out to him on Twitter to set up a meeting to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement."The Gateway Pundit has assembled a "Greatest Hits" list of DNC Wikileaks.
RELATED: A little backstory...
Inside the White House, aides and lawyers have been poring through the Wikileaks dump all weekend. "We all knew this was coming yesterday after the WikiLeaks news, it felt like it had to happen. It was just a question of the timing, to be honest," said one state party chair.Check out the craven hypocrisy of Oblabber & Clinton.
