Liberal Logic Update
Ilhan Omar is making sure her husband (which includes her) is getting rich off of her office.
Public records now show Omar’s office is her husband’s BIGGEST client.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) and new husband Tim Mynett—who is also her campaign consultant—are downplaying the campaign cash the freshman lawmaker funneled to his consulting firm.
But campaign records show that Omar’s campaign has been by far the firm’s biggest client, funneling more than half-a-million dollars to the group in the 2018 and 2020 election cycles, almost half of all the money the company took in from federal candidates.
Are we really surprised?
The Prez now wants everyone to receive 2 checks form the government to help in this time of need.
The Trump administration is seeking $250 billion in payments to Americans starting April 6, followed by another $250 billion cash payment round beginning May 18
The two payments to taxpayers would be identical and the amounts would vary by family income and size, according to the Treasury Department document on the “Stage Three” coronavirus proposal.
For many, these checks could make the difference in keeping their apartment or paying their mortgage – not to mention feeding their family.
In such close quarters this was bound to happen to traders.
New York Stock Exchange will temporarily close floor trading and move to fully electronic trading on Monday after a trader and a NYSE employee tested positive for COVID-19.
“Trading and regulatory oversight of all NYSE-listed securities will continue without interruption,” the exchange operator said.
The move is a “precautionary step to protect the health and well-being of employees and the floor community in response to COVID-19,” the company said. While the NYSE has closed before, most recently for superstorm Sandy in 2012, this is the first time the floor will be closed while electronic trading is going on.
Cool, Creepy Crazy or What???
A police department is trying to bring a little levity to the pandemic.
Puyallup Police department in Washington state has asked criminals to suspend their criminal behaviors until further notice because of the coronavirus.

Due to cases of #COVID-19, PPD is asking all criminal activities and nefarious behavior to cease. We appreciate your cooperation in halting crime & thank the criminals in advance. We will let you know when you can resume your normal behavior. Until then #washyourhands
Have to hand it to them bringing a smile into some spooky times.
