A high-ranking Democrat just publicly confessed to a major hoax. Voters nationwide are shocked — and he will never be able to run for office again after this scandal. It is devastating.
“Jonathan Lopez, an unsuccessful local candidate in Umatilla County, Oregon, has confessed to penning an anonymous racist letter to himself last month,” reported Breitbart News.
The fraudulent letter — which Lopez posted to his Facebook page before taking it down — featured a racist message. “Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county,” it said.
“We will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f–king Mexicans in the area!” concluded the letter, only it wasn’t real. Lopez admitted to manufacturing the whole thing.
Speaking with the East Oregonian newspaper, Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston revealed Lopez’s confession and chastised him (and others) for distracting police from real crimes.
Edmiston said the department received a “written admission by Mr. Lopez that the letter was fabricated,” and also said that “time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters.”
