Democrats tried to brush this story under the rug.
But they failed to do so.
And Nancy Pelosi broke out in a sweat after Trey Gowdy exposed her giant hometown scandal.
There’s a reason Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are trying to keep the media from focusing on crime and the left’s lack of support for law enforcement officers.
Voters don’t like how soft the Democrats are when it comes to fighting crime.
Chuck and Nancy know crime could cost them their majorities in Congress.
That’s why Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer watched in horror at former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy ripping Democrats on the latest crime “prevention” scheme Nancy Pelosi’s own hometown just rolled out.
During the latest episode on his popular Sunday show on Fox News, Gowdy informed viewers of the outrageous program San Francisco just rolled out to pay criminals.
San Francisco will pay $300 a month to criminals for not shooting people.
In New York – Schumer’s home – it’s even worse, criminals get up to $1,000 per month for not shooting anyone.
Saying these programs were outright “extortion,” Gowdy said he couldn’t believe that the left was now advocating to pay criminals at the same time they’re trying to defund the police.
“I just never thought government or any other noncriminal enterprise would actually encourage this kind of shakedown or extortion,” Gowdy stated.
“Think about where we are as a country right now. Some progressives are advocating for cutting funding for the cops but paying criminals so they will stop at least until the check clears being criminals.”
“Let that sink in for a second. Really think about that,” Gowdy added. “Some progressives want to stop paying cops but start paying criminals. And these are the same folks who tell us we need more social workers and more psychologists because we all know how great social workers are at processing crime scenes and collecting DNA samples.”
One of the reasons Biden’s poll numbers are tanking is because voters don’t like how soft the Democrats are when it comes to fighting crime.
Radical liberals in New York and San Francisco paying violent criminals not to shoot people will ensure the issue is front and center heading into 2022.
