Fiore's FEC Filings: Follow The Money
May 26, 2016

Nevada's favorite tabloid representative, Michele Fiore, who's running for the U.S. House, never ceases to disappoint. Thanks to plenty of free publicity and exposure gained when she inserted herself into the mix of the Malheur standoff, we learned that she was one of the agitators of the whole mess.

But Fiore's history is made up of a long list of suspicious practices. The self-pronounced Bundy Bunch heroine also has a few unusual campaign donations and expenditures. Would you believe? Yes. You would.

When you examine her expenditures, it is clear that Fiore used her NV Assembly campaign funds to fly up to the Malheur standoff and intervene in a disgraceful and costly debacle inflicted on Nevada, Washington State, and the rest of this nation's taxpayers.

Michele is a slippery character. If you examine her list of donors here, and search for NV's 3rd District, you can see a majority of her contributors live nowhere near Nevada. This is very unusual for a state representative. But of course, it's not her position as state rep that brings in that money. It's her position as Two Gun Barbie and Sovereign Citizen Susie that brings NRA-type and White Nationalist dollars home to mama.

Where apparently she spends them any way she likes.

This fraudulent, gun-crazed media-trollop actually has a shot at becoming the Congresswoman of one of the most populated districts in the Silver State. She's the next Michele Bachmann if she succeeds.

But given how embarrassing her financial dealings could be to the national party, perhaps there is hope yet she could trip on her own grift. We'll be keeping an eye out.

Here's one of her several ads.

Update: As my colleague Scarce points out, "Looked at her FEC filings. The vast majority of her money comes from out of state. And 3/4 of her money comes from un-itemized contributions, meaning no records that I can see. Far more than anyone else. And not surprisingly, I suppose, her biggest expenditures are for direct mailings.

Basically, she's running a scam organization, which under lax FEC regulations is probably still legal."

Can you help us out?
