  1. FORMER Ukip MEP Ashley Mote was jailed for five years yesterday for fraudulently claiming almost £500,000 in expenses.

    Mr Mote, a self-styled anti-corruption campaigner and whistleblower within the European Parliament, had submitted bogus claims for his parliamentary allowance.

    He claimed the money was for organisations carrying work out on his behalf, but it was actually spent funding his court battle against a previous conviction of benefit fraud.

    In his ruling, Mr Justice Stuart Smith said: “Your greed and dishonesty were matched only by your hypocrisy because while this was going on you carried out a high-profile campaign condemning corruption and the improper use of public money in the very institution from which you were leeching it.”

    Mr Mote was elected as a Ukip MEP in 2004 but later stood as an independent after being expelled from the party over his prosecution by the Department for Work and Pensions for fraudulently claiming £60,000 in benefits.

  21. Did you know that Amazon.com gives money to Breitbart News–the white supremacist fake news site that helped Donald Trump get elected?1

    Breitbart publishes completely fake news that blames Mexican immigrants for rape, Muslim refugees for crime in Europe, Planned Parenthood for killing “up to half a Holocaust,” and transgender women for sexual assault.2

    Hundreds of advertisers have already pulled out of Breitbart, yet Amazon is still giving money to the leading purveyor of racist and sexist “news” partly responsible for giving way to Trump-like hate–from the mainstreaming of white supremacists to the extraordinary increase in hate crimes.3

    Now, even Amazon’s own employees are protesting the company for funding Breitbart.4 If we join them, we can make sure Breitbart loses the money it needs to promote its hateful agenda–UltraViolet members did it before, when they got a dozens of advertisers to drop Rush Limbaugh. Will you sign the petition and demand Amazon stop giving money to Breitbart?

    Tell Amazon: Stop funding misogyny and white supremacy. Stop advertising with Breitbart.
    Sign the petition

    Once just an ultra-conservative news site, Breitbart has grown in influence both in and outside of the White House. Its former executive chair turned chief White House strategist, Steve Bannon, brought two Breitbart staffers on board with him.5The site had such a defining role in the presidential election that executives are actually looking to expand in time to manipulate important elections abroad.6

    And they’re doing it with the help of revenue coming in from advertisers. It has already lost business from big companies like Allstate and Hewlett-Packard, and now Amazon employees are clamoring for cutting all of its advertising on Breitbart.7Without revenue from ads and the sponsorship of a corporate giant like Amazon, Breitbart and its dangerous agenda lose steam.

    UltraViolet is joining our friends at The Representation Project to pressure Amazon. Will you also join and demand that Amazon quit advertising with Breitbart?

    Thanks for taking action.

  24. Amazon is funding misogyny and white supremacy by running ads on Breitbart — but we have a plan to stop them and take down Breitbart.

    Next week Amazon is holding its annual shareholder meeting, and UltraViolet members will be there to deliver 1 million petition signatures calling on Amazon to stop running ads on Breitbart.

    By paying for advertising on Breitbart — a white supremacist fake news site — Amazon is endorsing the racist and sexist agenda that Breitbart considers “news.” Amazon executives have faced serious scrutiny for their Breitbart ads, and if we weaken their standing with shareholders, executives will be forced to ditch Breitbart once and for all.

    We need your help to keep up the pressure ahead of next week’s shareholder meeting. Will you join the fight to demand that Amazon drop Breitbart for good?

    Chip in $5 to UltraViolet PAC right now if you want Amazon to stop funding Breitbart, a white supremacist fake news site.

    Tons of companies have already pulled ads from Breitbart, including Nordstrom, Mercedes-Benz and T-Mobile.1 If we can get Amazon to join them, then Breitbart will lose the money necessary to promote its hateful, bigoted agenda.

    Don’t forget that Breitbart was previously run by Steve Bannon, who now serves as Trump’s chief strategist in the White House. Last year Bannon declared Breitbart the “platform for the alt-right”2 and was responsible for the site’s significant impact on the presidential election.

    Under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart ran articles that blamed Muslim immigrants for crime in Europe, praised the “glorious heritage” of the Confederate Flag, and claimed birth control makes women “unattractive and crazy.”3

    Now Breitbart is trying to expand its reach in order to manipulate other elections around the world4 — and that is made possible by money that comes in from advertisers like Amazon.

    Losing advertising revenue from a giant company like Amazon would be a serious setback for Breitbart’s dangerous agenda. If we keep up the pressure on Amazon ahead of next week’s shareholder meeting, the company will be forced to cut ties with Breitbart.

    Contribute $5 to UltraViolet PAC today as your way of saying you want Amazon to stop funding misogyny and white supremacy by advertising with Breitbart.

    Thank you for stepping up.
