Last night, after watching this clip of Bill Maher going full "Old Rich Man Yells At Cloud" over the waste and fraud in the $953-billion Paycheck Protection Program, I thought it would be fun to see how much our favorite local barbeque grifter took home in the racket.
Just like a chewy piece of fat in Swadley's brisket, I wasn't shocked by what I found.
Wow. I've invented a lot of good excuses for missing work over the years, but even I can't top that! Falling ill with his wife and dog in a broken-down mobile home in Alabama????? That sounds like either the world's saddest Toby Keith song or the plot for National Lampoon's Redneck Vacation.
On Monday, a hyped-up local media exposed yet another grift in the Stitt Administration.
This time around, it involves Stitt's much-maligned Bro'cetery of Education Ryan Walters, the right-wing non-profit he manages, and $18,000,000 in federal Covid relief funding that was supposed to help support education in Oklahoma, but instead was given to private school parents with zero oversight so they could buy things like televisions, grills, smartwatches, power tools, and in one badass case, a vintage Pac-Man video game cabinet, all through a mysterious Florida-based company called "Class Wallet."
Last week, we acquired via the Ogle Mole Network an internal memo that Governor Stitt's office sends to all "New Appointees."...
It provides detailed instructions on how to lock down social media accounts, delete old tweets, and most importantly, dodge and avoid the evil media. It also reminds lucky appointees that they "represent Governor Stitt at all times," which is apparently a news flash to the Oklahoma people.
Last week, a group of Oklahoma Senators led by State Senator Rob Standridge submitted a committee substitute bill that, if passed and signed into law, will amend state statutes to make it a misdemeanor to give "obscene material" (a.k.a. pornography) to any vulnerable person, including one "experiencing homelessness."
