(Big League Politics) – Activist David Hogg reportedly encouraged a campaign finance felony by urging Canadians to donate cash to American political candidates while standing on stage with Michael Moore.
Hogg’s activism has visibly declined in recent months, judging by the reduced size of his rallies ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Hogg gained his widest prominence in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting in Florida.
Harry Cherry reports for the Daily Tack: “Appearing on stage with Moore at the annual Toronto International Film Festival, Hogg spoke to the Canadian crowd about saving America and turning their “shame” into “votes.”
“I have a question for you guys: Who’s ready to save America? Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper and make it the actual country that it wants to be?” Hogg asked the Toronto crowd. “I think the most important thing to realize, however, is the problems we face as a country, whether it be water in Flint, Michigan or the amount of mass incarceration of people of color that can’t vote.”
Hogg went on to suggest that Canadians donate money to political campaigns in the United States, which is a felony.
After making the highly embarrassing remarks, Moore took the microphone away from Hogg.
Nearly ten minutes later, Hogg was briefly permitted to speak again. He called out to the IRS, who he hoped was watching him speak, and asked them to investigate President Donald Trump for getting “$30 million from Russia via the NRA.”
