Fmr. president of foundation that runs ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ charged with possession of child porn

Milwaukee County Children’s Court Judge Brett Blomme, 38, has been charged with seven counts of possession of child pornography.

Blomme was elected to the Milwaukee County children’s court in the spring 2020 election, defeating incumbent Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Dedinsky. In his race, Blomme described himself as a “progressive alternative.”

Before being elected, Blomme was President of the Cream City Foundation, which provides grant money to LGBTQ groups in the Milwaukee area and is known for hosting ‘Drag Queen Story Hour‘, a controversial event where men dressed as women in drag attire read stories to children.

The Department of Justice arrested Blomme Tuesday “following an investigation into multiple uploads of child pornography through a Kik messaging application account in October and November 2020,” according to a statement.

The search warrant filed Friday by a DCI special agent states that Blomme was using online alias “dommasterbb” to upload videos and images containing child pornography. Blomme reportedly uploaded up to 27 images and videos of underage children being sexually abused to “Kik.” The location for these uploads were tracked back to Blomme’s house and two of the files were uploaded at a Milwaukee County government building, the search warrant said.

Blomme spent one night in prison and was released through a signature bond, ordering Blomme to not use social media or file sharing services, or have unsupervised contact with children, except for his own. Blomme is married to a man and has two adopted children.

Criminal charges are expected to be filed against Blomme this week.

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
