Do you want your privacy?
If you can be used against a Republican, even if you are a Democrat, forget about it.
Deneeta Pope is finding this out the hard way.
From the Mail:
Paul Ryan's African-American college sweetheart has spent time in prison for wire fraud, it emerged today.
Deneeta Pope hit headlines after MailOnline revealed that she was the Republican vice-presidential candidate's ex-girlfriend who opened his eyes to the evils of racism.
She served five months in prison after defrauding her employer Ernst & Young out of $77,000 in 1999, according to the federal Bureau of Prisons.
Ms Pope admitted claiming funds from work to attend an educational course which did not exist.
Mr Ryan has stayed in touch with his ex over the two decades since they broke up - he even attended Ms Pope's wedding in May this year.
Paul Ryan and Deneeta Pope first fell for each other at Miami University of Ohio in the early 1990s. She was a stunning cheerleader and he, pictured here in his yearbook, a good-looking 6ft2in Irish Catholic
The former cheerleader was indicted by a grand jury in November 1999, and two years later pleaded guilty to faking receipts and expense claims in order to steal tens of thousands of dollars.
She would apparently transfer the fraudulently obtained funds to a secret bank account in Chicago, where she currently lives.
Following her conviction, Ms Pope was sentenced to five months in federal prison, and was released in May 2002.
Ms Pope now claims to be a Democrat and is a donor to Barack Obama, but in 1997 she gave money to her ex-boyfriend Mr Ryan to help his campaign for Congress in Wisconsin.
She registered to vote as a Democrat in Illinois in 2008. It is legal for ex-felons to vote in Illinois once they have served out their sentence.
A spokesman for Mr Ryan declined to comment on the reports of his ex-girlfriend's criminal past.
Deneeta Pope has begged for privacy. She dated Paul Ryan twenty years ago, was arrested almost 13 years ago and finished her sentence over ten years ago.
She has nothing to do with Paul Ryan other than she dated him two decades ago when they were both in college. But to the media, she is perhaps something that can be used to smear Ryan because she did something long after they had stopped dating.
Isn’t the media disgusting?
Yes, it is.
Note: the Mail is a British rag.
wonder if its gone down hill since private equity bought it?
The group can trace its origins back to launch of the mid market national newspaper the Daily Mail by Harold Harmsworth and his elder brother, Alfred, in 1896. It was incorporated in 1922 and its shares were first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1932. Harmsworth, who had been elevated to the peerage as Lord Rothermere, was editorially sympathetic to Oswald Mosley and the British Union of Fascists and he wrote an article, "Hurrah for the Blackshirts", in January 1934. Referring to Adolf Hitler's proposed invasion of Czechoslovakia, Rothermere, again writing in the Daily Mail, said in 1938 that "Czechs were of no concern to Englishmen".
After almost 100 years in Fleet Street, the company left its original premises of New Carmelite House in Fleet Street in 1988 to move to Northcliffe House in Kensington. At the same time as the newspapers moved to Kensington, the printing operation for Southern England moved four miles (6 km) away to Surrey Quays. This state-of-the-art printing centre was opened on an 11-acre (45,000 m2) site at Rotherhithe in the London Docklands in 1989.
In mid 2006, the company sold Studygroup, a subsidiary of DMG Information, to CHAMP, an Australian based private equity group.
so yes this particular example of the media has been disgusting a very long time.
Thanks for the profile of this British rag! Still, it's always interesting to see what's being presented across the pond.
Open Season on all Democrats including the incumbent POTUS! Dig! Dig! and Dig! some more and we'll find plenty on all of them I guarantee it!
This kind of behavior is disgusting to me. I am shamed that my Presidential Candidate or Incumbant would act , in front of the world, without dignity and morality in his struggle to be the leader of the greatest nation on earth; kinda like a cheap Jerry Springer reality. When you use these types of strategies, even if you win the struggle, you will ultimately lose, and, face a much more Grave Enemy that you have created by losing your character. Hitler blew his own brains out because the people he attacked finally joined forces and defeated him. Yin and Yang
Don't pretend that you haven't noticed the same behavior on the conservative side.
Now that you mention it, no I haven't notice anyone doing this same behavior on the Republican side. We do know that Obama is a Muslim Kenyan but that in not only true but relevant since it means that he is a liar and not legally the president.
I have survived on this earth for the better part of 68 years. I accepted My Lord and Savior Jesus The Christ at the tender age of 8.
My years of perception of others a has convinced me of the words of Jesus. When he was asked by the Pharisees, "Good Master" what say you...Jesus replied, "Why do you call me good....for there is No Good except My Father in Heaven"?
If Jesus would not let them "Call Him Good".....then surely I will not elevate members of any political party to a "higher level than Jesus My Christ".
No......ALL HAVE DONE SOME OF THESE "EVIL DEEDS" !
The same behavior on the conservative side, avital? No it seldom happens So, we now send you back to the Land of Liberals where such is quite common.
Yes, when do we get to hear about all the criminal activity surrounding BO, which is pretty much NON STOP!
From the girlfriend he had murdered to the gay in his "church" who also ended up conveniently dead. The list goes on!
Could we start with all the concealed documents he spent millions on to cover for what is probably pretty
damning evidence of DiSQUALIFICATION! When you have a bunch of IMMORAL people, anything can be
expected because nothing is sacred to them. Yeah, who WAS Boso dating at age 19? If the Dems keep looking for dirt in the GOP, they are going to drown in their own filth! Cause it's a way higher and deeper!
