Former Hidalgo County commissioner Sylvia Handy has faced backlash for her post on a local mail-in ballot review committee after it was reported that she’s a convicted felon and she’s since resigned from her position over the scrutiny, The McAllen, Texas Monitor is reporting.

Handy’s appointment to the Signature Verification Committee drew scrutiny from both the local Republican and Democrat parties. However, the leadership of the local Democratic party argued that she was appointed because there was a shortage of willing volunteers.

“Ms. Handy has resigned her appointment effective immediately,” Hidalgo County Democratic Party Chairwoman Norma Ramirez said during a local news Facebook livestream , according to the report.

Handy served time in a federal prison after she plead guilty to charges of mishandling taxpayer money, the report noted.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
