Following on from the previous TDG post. Trump is gearing up for a crooked election with some crooked friends…
President Trump’s reelection campaign… promoted Stephanie Alexander, a regional director for the campaign, to chief of staff. “…Stephanie Alexander bring decades of experience in political campaigns and also relentless dedication to President Trump and all that he aims to accomplish for the American people,” Alexander previously served as battlegrounds state director for the Trump campaign in 2016, when the president turned Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania red for the first time in decades.https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/499510-trump-campaign-taps-new-deputy-campaign-manager
The Trump campaign’s new chief of staff was arrested on campaign-finance charges in 2016 after cops busted her boyfriend for cocaine and found incriminating texts on his phone
Oklahoma County District Attorney, Stephanie Alexander, was named chief of staff of President Trump’s reelection campaign on Tuesday. In 2016, Alexander — then named Stephanie Milligan — was arrested in Oklahoma and charged with conspiracy to violate state campaign-finance laws. The charges were later dropped, and the case was expunged last month at Alexander’s request. Prosecutors alleged that Alexander and several coconspirators illegally coordinated the efforts of a “dark-money” independent group with the campaign of a GOP candidate for Oklahoma superintendent of public instruction.
The case relied in part on texts and emails recovered from Alexander’s then-boyfriend, Chad Alexander, who was charged with possession of cocaine in 2014, according to court records. The two are now married. Prosecutors dropped the case against Stephanie Alexander without explanation in 2017, saying that the investigation would continue. The Trump campaign says Alexander is “a campaign professional and continues to be a valued member of the team.”
Alexander and Chad Alexander both worked to establish an apparently independent advocacy organization called Oklahomans for Public School Excellence (OPSE) that raised money from anonymous donors and ran a $300,000 for attack adverts on political opponents.
Just days before the 2016 presidential election Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater stated that OPSE was a front organization designed to conceal “a conspiracy to commit campaign contribution violations and illegal coordination” with dark-money donors. It is illegal in Oklahoma for donors to give more than $5,000 to a campaign, or for independent groups coordinating campaigns.
A cocaine arrest provides a break in the case. Chad Alexander was charged with possession of cocaine in 2014. Chad Alexander, who previously served as the chairman of the Oklahoma Republican Party, was arrested on a cocaine-possession charge while driving his Mercedes in Oklahoma City. Police seized his cellphones and computer and found texts and emails showing the conspiracy. Prosecutors alleged the conversations showed them plotting a dark-money strategy to run attack ads.
After the cocaine arrest, Stephanie Alexander took over Chad Alexander’s role at OPSE.
At the time of her arrest in November 2016, Stephanie Alexander was already serving as an official on the Trump presidential campaign. According to court records, Alexander refused to sit for an interview with investigators but offered to answer written questions from the state prosecutors.
She faced up to 10 years in jail on three felony counts. But Prater, the district attorney, abruptly withdrew all charges in the case in August 2017.
