Fugees’ Pras Charged In Campaign Finance Conspiracy

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of the founding members of the 1990s hip-hop group the Fugees has been charged in a campaign finance conspiracy that took place during the 2012 presidential election, the Justice Department said Friday.

A four-count indictment accuses Prakazrel “Pras” Michel of conspiring with fugitive Malaysian financer Low Taek Jho, usually known as Jho Low, to make and conceal foreign campaign contributions. He is alleged to have used straw donors to give campaign contributions to a U.S. presidential candidate, who is identified in the indictment only as Candidate A.

Low has gained attention in the last several years after U.S. officials accused him of masterminding a money laundering and bribery scheme that pilfered billions from the Malaysian state investment fund known as 1MDB. He’s been charged separately by both U.S. and Malaysian officials in connection with that alleged fraud but remains at large.

Prosecutors allege that from June to November 2012, Low directed more than $ 21.6 million to be moved from foreign entities to Michel’s accounts in order to funnel money into the 2012 presidential election. They say Michel then paid about 20 straw donors and conduits so they could make the donations in their names and conceal where the money actually came from, according to the indictment.

More than $ 1 million was also sent to an independent expenditure committee, prosecutors said.

“Mr. Michel is extremely disappointed that so many years after the fact the government would bring charges related to 2012 campaign contributions,” said defense lawyer Barry Pollack. “Mr. Michel is innocent of these charges and looks forward to having the case heard by a jury.”

Representatives for Low said in a statement that he is innocent and the allegations against him “have no basis in fact.”

“Mr. Low has never made any campaign contributions directly or indirectly in the U.S. and he unequivocally denies any involvement in or knowledge of the alleged activities,” the statement said.

Fred Wertheimer of Democracy 21, a nonprofit campaign finance watchdog group, said that his organization and another one filed a complaint against Michel to both the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department.

“It’s pretty unusual to get the government to bring criminal campaign finance cases,” he said. “On the other hand, we thought this was a clear case where enforcement was called for.”

Michel faces a separate civil forfeiture complaint accusing him in a scheme to try to get the department to drop an investigation into embezzlement from a Malaysian investment fund. Michel has denied wrongdoing in that case.

The embezzlement from the fund, known as 1MDB , became a political scandal in Malaysia. Looted money paid for jewelry and luxury art and helped finance “The Wolf of Wall Street” and other Hollywood productions films. The Justice Department last year announced charges against Jho Low and two former Goldman Sachs bankers in a money laundering and bribery scheme that pilfered money from the fund, created to spur economic development projects in that country.

One of those bankers, Roger Ng, was extradited from Malaysia earlier this month to face charges in New York.

Joe Biden Hires Symone Sanders as His 2020 Presidential Campaign Strategist

Former Vice President Joe Biden has selected Symone Sanders to be a senior adviser to his 2020 presidential campaign, the AP is reporting.

Sanders was the former press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders (no relation) during the 2016 election when the Vermont senator ran as the Democrat nominee.

The 29-year-old is also a high-profile political analyst at CNN. She spoke at this year’s Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit.

In an interview with Black Enterprise, Sanders spoke about the value black women bring to the political arena.

“I think the political and democratic apparatus has woken up to see the real value of black women and now they are doing all kinds of things to hold on to it and bring black women into the fold and black women are like, ‘We just want you to hire us, give us resources, let us lead, and get out of our way,” she said.

As someone who is often on the forefront of heated conversations and debates, Sanders is known for her ability to stand her ground. Beyond her career, she says that there are two things that no one can go toe-to-toe with her on and they are Nebraska and Beyoncé.

“I’m from Nebraska and you can’t tell me nothing about Nebraska. I’m also a Beyoncé fan and you can’t tell me nothing about Beyoncé. I don’t care who you are, what setting we’re in, or where we are—if I’m in a meeting with a potential president of the United States, if we get on the topic of Nebraska and Beyoncé, I am going to feel very emboldened to speak up and push back and talk to you about that. So, black women, we need to feel the same way about Nebraska and Beyoncé as we do about all of these other things that we deal with in our workplace every single day.”

John Legend Teams With Beauty Brand Kiehl’s For ‘Made Better’ Campaign [Watch]

John Legend has joined forces with Kiehl’s for its “Made Better” campaign to help spread a vital message about taking care of the environment.

“Kiehl’s has been making wonderful products for years. Now, they’re committed to using more sustainable packaging, natural ingredients and to support environmental causes, which I am glad to see,” Legend tells PEOPLE.

To help bring awareness to the issue, Legend is promoting the brand’s top selling face mask.

“I’m really inspired by the story behind the main ingredient of the mask — Amazonian White Clay — which is fairly traded and collected by local families near the Amazon River in Northern Brazil,” he says. “Kiehl’s provides economic support to the community.”

The EGOT-winning musician says his two kids, 2-year-old daughter Luna and 10-month-old son Miles, inspired him to team up with Kiehl’s.

“This partnership is all about making choices today that leave the world a better place for my kids and future generations,” Legend says.

via PEOPLE:

Besides formulating the deep cleansing face mask with fairly traded ingredients, the brand also uses repurposed coffee bean bag fiber and post-consumer waste for the top label and 30 percent post-consumer recycled plastic for the jar. Plus, in honor of Earth Day 2019, Kiehl’s will donate 100 percent of net profits, up to $ 25,000, of the limited edition mask to theEarth Day Network, which will support the organization’s campaign, The Great Global Clean Up.

“Sustainability is making choices, big or small, every day that leave the planet healthier than we found it,” Legend says. “And it isn’t hard to be eco-conscious. We can make a big difference with the products we buy.”

He added, “Luna knows the word recycling already!” he says. “There’s a recycling bin right next to our trash can and she knows certain things go in the recycling bin, so people can use them again.”

McDonald’s Celebrates Black Excellence Through New ‘Black & Positively Golden ‘Campaign

McDonald’s USA rolled out its largest campaign in 16 years targeting African American consumers on Friday. The new campaign, titled “Black & Positively Golden,” aims to uplift black communities and inspire excellence through education, empowerment, and entrepreneurship. It also replaces the McDonald’s 365Black platform, which began in 2003.

The campaign launched in partnership with YWCA USA at a community event held at Leimert Park in Los Angeles. The event began with a panel of black corporate executives that discussed the messaging behind “Black & Positively Golden,” how it celebrates black excellence, and highlights stories of truth, power, and pride. The kickoff also featured the unveiling of a mural created by L.A.-based artist Enkone, an appearance by Insecure actress Yvonne Orji, and a live performance by multi-platinum recording artist Normani.

Beyond the launch event, McDonald’s has commenced a yearlong commitment to support the YWCA USA’s Women’s Empowerment 360 Program—an initiative designed to empower female entrepreneurs of color. The global food chain’s financial support will provide approximately 5,000 aspiring businesswomen around the country with an education curriculum and other tools needed for success.

According to Lizette Williams, Head of Cultural Engagement & Experiences, McDonald’s USA, the fast-food chain has been a pillar in communities of color by providing jobs, franchise opportunities, and scholarship funding. “The African American consumer, for McDonald’s, is critically important,” she told BLACK ENTERPRISE. “We’re a brand that’s accessible for everyone, but we’ve been there in the black community for 50 years. We’ve supported the black community through our work with HBCU scholarships,” in addition to supporting organizations like the YWCA and NAACP. “It continues to be at the very fabric of what the corporation and brand represent.”

Nicole Enearu, a franchisee who currently owns/operates a total of 18 McDonald’s restaurants with her family, told BE that the campaign “is really about shining a light on the positive things that are happening in the African American community and demonstrating McDonald’s ongoing commitment to our community.”

Enearu is just one of 300 African American McDonald’s franchisees in the U.S. who will help bring the campaign to life by providing economic opportunities to the neighborhoods they serve. “We maintain a commitment to our neighbors through various parts of our business—including scholarship partnerships with historically black colleges and universities, generational wealth-building with franchisee training and partnering with minority suppliers,” she said in a statement.

Terrence Burrell, the vice president and creative director of Burrell Communications Group, the firm that helped create the “Black & Positively Golden” campaign, says he hopes it will ultimately drown out negative news surrounding the black community. “We want that to be the narrative versus what we’re getting from the BBQ Beckys of the world and all of those moments that seem to go viral.”

In conjunction with the YWCA launch event, McDonald’s debuted the campaign with a 60-second television spot during the 50th NAACP Image Awards. “Black & Positively Golden” will also be featured in black-oriented media outlets and events throughout the year. Furthermore, McDonald’s says it will continue to provide scholarships for students attending HBCUs through its partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

“More than a campaign, we want to create a movement around positivity in black America,” said Williams.

Converse Campaign Spotlights London’s Young Creatives

LOCAL COLOR: Converse has dedicated its latest video campaign, Spark Progress, to London’s female creative community: It features men’s wear designers Paria Farzaneh and Feng Chen Wang as well as singer-songwriters Ama Lou and Raye and the singer and skater Lava La Rue.
“It was clear that Converse didn’t have to inspire youth: The city — and its restless spirit — is alive and thriving,” said Adrian French, vice president of marketing at Converse. “But they worry about the infrastructure and support needed to see their potential visions realized, and that’s where we can provide support. Spark Progress is a tribute to them.”
Shot in London and co-created by the five women, the campaign highlights their creative journeys showing moments of frustration, joy, celebration and the creative process.
There are images of Farzaneh sewing together pieces for her collection and putting her mark on a pair of Converse shoes. She’s collaborated with the brand for the past three seasons.
In another clip, Wang is seen running down the catwalk and smiling from ear to ear after a successful debut runway show in London in January. Wang has also collaborated with the brand on a line of Chuck Taylor All Stars, which she revamped in five

Waris Dirie Partners With Coco de Mer on Campaign to End Female Genital Mutilation

THE GOOD FIGHT: Activist, author and model Waris Dirie is stepping in front of the lens after a 20-year hiatus from modeling, collaborating with the lingerie brand Coco de Mer to spread awareness about female genital mutilation.
Dirie herself is a victim of FGM and has been working for 25 years to abolish the practice, which is illegal in Western nations including Britain, but still practiced in parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. In 2002, Dirie founded the Desert Flower Foundation to educate and provide support to women affected by FGM. As a result of her advocacy, FGM rates in Africa have gone from 70 percent to 7 percent, according to Dirie.
In the campaign videos, Dirie stands looking at the camera with a flower in her hand, a symbol of the female genitalia and of her foundation. In the video, she’s eventually joined by women, children and men. “It’s not just a women’s fight, it’s a fight for everyone,” said Lucy Litwak, ceo of Coco de Mer.
The campaign images, shot by Rankin, see the model wearing pieces from Coco De Mer’s Icons collection.

Sources: Kamala Harris Will Launch A Presidential Campaign Around MLK Jr. Day

Sen. Kamala Harris may officially announce her bid for the White House sometime during MLK weekend, according to inside sources who spoke to KCBS Radio in her home state of California.

Speculation that the Democratic senator will make a run for president next year escalated when she launched a book tour promoting her new memoir, The Truths We Hold: An American Journey, which published Tuesday. When questioned about the 2020 race on her tour, Harris has repeatedly said that she is not ready to announce her decision yet. However, several sources with knowledge of her plans say she and her family are indeed ready for a run.

Sources also say that the 54-year-old freshman senator is still debating on how and where to kick off a presidential campaign. KCBS reports that “the tentative plan is for Harris to enter the race for the Democratic presidential nomination with a campaign rally, most likely in Oakland, where she was born and began her legal career.” However, a spokesperson for Harris told The Hill, that no announcement is imminent and Harris will not be in Oakland during the holiday weekend.

Nonetheless, Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper on Wednesday that she will make a final decision about 2020 soon and that she truly believes the nation is ready for a woman of color to be president.

“We have to give the American people more credit, and we have to understand that the American public and the people of our country are smart people who will make decisions about who will be their leader based on who they believe is capable, who they believe has an honest desire to lead, to represent, to see them, to be a voice for them even if they have no power,” she said.

Harris made history in 2017 when she became the second African American woman to be sworn into Congress as a U.S. Senator. Altogether, a total of just 10 African Americans have ever served in the U.S. Senate, including former President Barack Obama and Sen. Cory Booker.

If Harris jumps into the 2020 race, she would likely join Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who recently announced an exploratory committee for a presidential bid. Other potential high-profile Democratic candidates include Sen. Booker, Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas).

GoFundMe Border Wall Campaign Implodes, Turns to Kris Kobach and Sheriff Clarke

Getty/Reuters

A decorated veteran who raised more than $ 20 million to finance construction of a wall along the southern U.S. border has announced that he will instead use the money to finance a new nonprofit group that will build the wall itself—or at least a couple miles of it.

Brian Kolfage’s crowdfunding campaign on the website GoFundMe went viral in December, before news outlets uncovered previous instances in which the triple-amputee veteran appeared to have pocketed funds raised through similar, if far smaller, campaigns billed as efforts to assist wounded warriors.

Now Kolfage, a prolific operator of conspiracy theory Facebook pages, has recruited a team of prominent figures in President Donald Trump’s orbit to run a new 501(c)(4) nonprofit, named We Fund The Wall, to do some wall construction of its own. The new group’s board, Kolfage announced on Friday, includes Erik Prince, the founder of infamous military contract Blackwater; David Clarke, the former scandal-plagued sheriff of Milwaukee County; Fox News contributor Sara Carter; Tom Tancredo, an immigration hardliner and former Colorado congressman; and former Kansas Secretary of State and voter fraud crusader Kris Kobach

Major League Baseball Asks for Its $5,000 Campaign Donation Back From Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith

When lobbyists for Major League Baseball made a donation in connection with a political event on Friday, they probably didn’t expect to ask for it back two days later.

Amid outcry over racially insensitive remarks made by Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith earlier this month, the MLB has asked her campaign to return its $ 5,000 donation.

On a Nov. 2 campaign stop, Sen. Hyde-Smith was captured in a viral video making remarks about attending a “public hanging.”

“If he invited me to a public hanging, I’d be in the front row,” Sen. Hyde-Smith said, referring to a supporter. Her opponent in Tuesday’s run-off election, former Democratic Representative Mike Espy, is an African-American.

Hyde-Smith subsequently gave a partial apology during a Nov. 20 debate against Espy.

“For anyone that was offended by my comments, I certainly apologize,” she said. “There was no ill will, no intent whatsoever in my statements.”

She then noted “this comment was twisted and it was turned into a weapon to be used against me.”

The MLB made its contribution to her campaign weeks after the senator made those comments.

“The contribution was made in connection with an event that MLB lobbyists were asked to attend,” the league said in a statement issued Sunday, reported the Daily Beast. “MLB has requested that the contribution be returned.”

Several companies, including Walmart, have recently asked her campaign to return donations following the comment, reported USA Today.

It’s not the first controversy that Hyde-Smith has caused.

In 2014, she posted a picture on her Facebook page showing her posing at the Jefferson Davis homestead holding a rifle and wearing a Confederate hat, reported the Washington Post.

“Mississippi history at its best!” she wrote.

Hyde-Smith has also been caught on video making jokes about voter suppression.

Stacey Abrams has ended her campaign in Georgia and will sue for “gross mismanagement” of the election

Stacey Abrams has ended her campaign in Georgia and will sue for “gross mismanagement” of the election

In devastating news, Stacey Abrams has ended her campaign for governor in Georgia against Republican Brian Kemp—which, if she’d won, would have made her the first Black woman ever to lead a U.S. state. The Democratic politician is also set to file a lawsuit against the state of Georgia for “gross mismanagement” of the election.

In her November 16th speech, Abrams said firmly that her decision to end her campaign was not a concession.

“Let’s be clear—this is not a speech of concession, because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true, or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that,” she said. “But my assessment is the law currently allows no further viable remedy. Now, I can certainly bring a new case to keep this one contest alive, but I don’t want to hold public office if I need to scheme my way into the post. Because the title of governor isn’t nearly as important as our shared title—voters. And that is why we fight on.”

Referring to Kemp, she added, “Under the watch of the now-former secretary of state, democracy failed Georgia. Make no mistake, the former secretary of state was deliberate and intentional in his actions. I know that eight years of systemic disenfranchisement, disinvestment, and incompetence had its desired effect on the electoral process in Georgia.”

John Bazemore-Pool/Getty Images

Abrams’ speech comes on the heels of a contentious campaign against Kemp in the November 6th midterm elections; since then, Abrams’ team has fought hard to secure enough votes to force a December 4th runoff, but Kemp kept a narrow lead over Abrams.

Over 1,000 absentee votes were rejected during Georgia’s midterm elections due to minor administrative errors, such as mismatched addresses and birth dates, and even more voters had lost their right to cast a ballot earlier in the campaign because of a Kemp-era policy. Georgians had to contend with major voting difficulties due to broken machines, long lines, and untrained poll workers. Even Kemp, who oversaw the midterm elections and faced allegations of voter suppression, reportedly had issues voting as well.

Selena Gomez Gets Animated in Latest Coach Campaign

Coach is showcasing a lighter side of Selena Gomez, its women’s ambassador, for its holiday campaign.
In the latest interaction, the actress is joined by a cast of animated animals as they audition to be featured in the Coach holiday windows.
The campaign, entitled: “Lights, Camera, Holiday,” breaks today and includes both print and video components.
There will be a series of short animated films written and directed by Henry and Rel of Supermarché, that will post on Coach’s social media channels.

The print component was shot in New York City and features Gomez stepping out of a vintage car holding the Parker bag in metallic leather.
The brand will also bring the campaign to life in its stores in North America through the use of augmented reality technology from CameraIQ while its Japanese customers will be able to play a party animals game in that country.
The campaign was created by photographer Steven Meisel, art director Fabien Baron, makeup artist Pat McGrath and hair stylist Guido Palau.

Kristin Scott Thomas, M.I.A., Naomi Campbell and Her Mom to Feature in Burberry’s Christmas Campaign 

THAT TIME OF YEAR: Riccardo Tisci wasn’t kidding when he said he wanted to build a wardrobe for a mother and a daughter, a father and a son. “Why just offer one identity when you can really design for every age, for every culture and every different lifestyle?” said Burberry’s chief creative officer after his debut spring/summer 2019 show in September.
He’s sticking to his guns with the Christmas ad campaign, which will feature Naomi Campbell, her mother Valerie Morris-Campbell, actors Kristin Scott Thomas and Matt Smith, and singer-songwriter M.I.A. Tisci has tapped the British photographer Juno Calypso, who is known for her self-portraits, to direct and shoot the campaign, which will launch on Nov. 13 across all Burberry channels.
Last year, Burberry worked with Cara Delevingne and Smith, shooting them against a snowy backdrop in a retro, black-and-white video clip. Past campaigns have featured the likes of Lily James, Sienna Miller, Romeo Beckham and James Corden. While details of the new campaign remain under wraps, the brand hinted to the theme by releasing arty portraits of the five faces split in half and blurred into one another.

We Heart: The #VoteYourMainStreet Campaign to Preserve Feminist History in Seneca Falls

The first American women’s rights convention took place in Seneca Falls. Some of the earliest feminists—among them Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Frederick Douglass—were in attendance. The two-day convention, which produced the historic Declaration of Sentiments and led to a series of women’s rights conventions throughout the United States, took place in the Seneca Knitting Mill.

170 years later, the National Women’s Hall of Fame wants to set up shop in that knitting mill to best honor the achievements of the activists who bravely sparked the modern women’s rights movement—but they need your help. The organization is calling on feminists nationwide to help them secure a grant through the #VoteYourMainStreet campaign and make the move possible.

Paola Franqui, @monaris_

Partners in Preservation, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express launched the national grassroots campaign, which is offering grants to significant sites in order to preserve American history. Partners in Preservation has raised over $ 22 million for over 200 sites since its creation in 2006; the National Trust for Historic Preservation has over 60 years of experience in advocating for the preservation of historical sites. Now, these groups want to help local communities educate others about their rich and diverse history.

The Seneca Knitting Mill is one of only two out of 20 competing sites in the campaign related strictly to women’s history, and it’s the oldest and most foundational of the batch related to feminism in the U.S. Should the site win the competition, the $ 150,000 grant would allow the National Women’s Hall of Fame to move to this significant location.

Today is the last day feminists can vote in the campaign, but the old political punchline “vote early and vote often” still applies! You can vote five times today—and all at once, in the click of a button.

Victoria Sheber is an editorial intern at Ms., a debate instructor at Windward School and a member of the JusticeCorps at the Los Angeles Superior Court. Victoria is currently a senior at UCLA studying American Literature & Culture and History; she is also the President of the American Association of University Women chapter on campus and Assistant Section Editor for Fem Newsmagazine. She loves to read and write about feminist literature.

New $2.6 Million Campaign Encourages Black Voter Turnout in Midterm Elections

A newly-launched political group that includes several top black business leaders and entrepreneurs is doing its part to help ensure black voter turnout during the midterm elections on November 6.

The Black Economic Alliance PAC and Black Economic Alliance Fund just announced a $ 2.6 million campaign to mobilize black voters in 15 key races ahead of next month’s midterm elections.

The movement is geared to escalate black voter turnout in support of candidates advocating for sustainable policies that will improve and enhance economic outcomes for the nation’s black community.

Further, the investments will help engage and mobilize black voters by utilizing various tactics, including polling, radio, and digital advertising, door-to-door canvassing, SMS texting, and direct mail.

“For far too long, many of our nation’s elected officials have been crafting policies that contribute to the economic disenfranchisement of millions of black people across the country,” Gerald Adolph, board member of the Black Economic Alliance PAC, stated in a press release.

“By investing nearly $ 3 million in targeted gubernatorial, congressional and Senate races, we can help ensure that candidates rallying for policies that lead to better employment opportunities and wages for black Americans are victorious in November.”

Adolph added, “This midterm election is crucial for the economic well-being of many black people and their families. That’s why we’ve extensively surveyed the national landscape to identify candidates who can help improve economic opportunities for the black community. As the election draws closer and fields shift, we will continue to invest in candidates and races that can make the ultimate difference in the lives of black people.”

More details about the campaign and candidates the Black Economic Alliance PAC and Black Economic Alliance Fund will back in upcoming races can be found here.

Andrew Gillum’s Campaign Sends Cease-and-Desist Letter for GOP’s Attack Ad Aired During Hurricane

Joe Raedle/Getty

Andrew Gillum’s campaign for Florida governor has sent a cease-and-desist letter to television stations airing his opponent’s attack ad while the dangerous Hurricane Michael bore down on the state.

The ad in support of Republican candidate Rep. Ron DeSantis was paid for by the state GOP and was aired locally as both Gillum—the mayor of Tallahassee—and Republican Gov. Rick Scott were busy dealing with the storm’s effects on the Panhandle region.

“It is abundantly clear that Congressman DeSantis is a liar who has no respect for Floridians and no positive vision for our state,” said the Gillum campaign’s communications director Johanna Cervone. “His latest attack ad is indicative of a candidate with no moral compass who has resorted to desperate and dirty lies in order to score political points during a natural disaster.”

The Aztrek, which was relaunched at retail this summer and sells for $ 90, is unisex and epitomizes the “dad sneaker” trend. It is sold at Champs and Reebok.com.
Featured in the campaign is humorist and social media personality Jay Versace; vintage streetwear reworker Sara Gourlay of Frankie Collective; cult vintage shop owner Kirk Tilton of For All to Envy; Jordan Page, a retro style expert and streetwear archivist, and Josh Matthews and Angie Chavez, vintage collectors and curators.
