A growing corruption probe has overtaken the Orange County Democratic Party in California. Longtime leader of the party, Melahat Rafiei, resigned Sunday night from her position as secretary of the California Democratic Party and state representative to the Democratic National Committee.

Fox LA reports she made the announcement Sunday in a letter posted on social media. “Rafiei said she was a confidential witness in the FBI probe of the proposed sale of Angel Stadium and that she resigned from her post, saying the controversy over her role had become a hindrance.”

Voice of OC reports:

According to an affidavit from FBI special agent Brian Adkins, Rafiei was arrested on attempted bribery after federal agents allege she told a cannabis company that hired her she planned on bribing two Irvine City Councilmembers in exchange for favorable legislation in the city. 

“CW1 began to devise a scheme whereby CW1 would solicit money from CHS1 and CHS2 with the intention of paying bribes to two elected members of the Irvine City Council in exchange for the Council Members performing official acts, resulting in the passage of favorable cannabis laws,” states the affidavit. 

Rafiei had been under scrutiny and pressured to quit after reports surfaced that she had been arrested by the FBI in 2019 for an alleged bribery scheme. Rafiei has not been charged.

The hashtag #FreeSteveDaines has flooded social media after the Twitter account of United States Senator Steve Daines, a Republican from Montana, was suspended. The decision by Twitter came Monday night, reportedly due to the profile photo which shows him with his wife next to a hunted Montana antelope.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Daines showed no fear against the platform’s preposterous policy by simply saying, “My wife is a great shot. What can I say?”

Rachel Dumke, press secretary for Daines, said in a statement to Fox News Digital “The Senator thinks it’s preposterous that a picture of him and his wife hunting — an activity that is engrained in the Montana way of life — would be against Twitter rules. Our team has reached out to Twitter, and we’ll be working to get this resolved.”

Supporters from the conservative as well as hunting communities have come to Daines’ defense. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas tweeted: “Ridiculous. My friend @SteveDaines is in @Twitter jail for posting this pic w/ his wife Cindy. If you don’t like hunting, fine, don’t go. But don’t censor others who disagree. And I’m pretty sure this is a formal job responsibility for a senator from Montana!”

Republican Representative from Montana, Ryan Zinke complimented the Senator’s wife, writing, “Great shot, Cindy!”
