Here's a stinker of a story hidden toward the back of the business section: Those illegal campaign contributions that crypto bro Sam Bankman-Fried and his cronies made around the country, including in Oregon? SBF isn't going to be prosecuted for them. The feds have dropped the campaign finance charge from his indictment.

The given reason? Some sort of supposed conflict involving the extradition treaty with the Bahamas, where he was arrested and shipped back to the States to face the music.

But in a court filing on Wednesday night, the prosecutors said the Bahamas had informed them that the nation’s government had not intended to extradite Mr. Bankman-Fried on the campaign finance charge.

“In keeping with its treaty obligations to the Bahamas, the government does not intend to proceed to trial on the campaign contributions count,” the prosecutors’ filing said.

Our sacred treaty obligahtions – we are always so good about honoring them. We cannot let the Bahamas down. Sure, that's it.

And so gee, now those damaging email messages tying illegal contributions in Oregon to Ron Wyden's people – and the half-million that the Oregon Democrats were forced to pay back – none of that will be aired in Sam's very public trial. Maybe it will be whisked under a rug and forgotten.

How convenient! What a country. 


  1. Hey now! Ron Wyden really doesn't appreciate your negative attitude! He's striving hard to bring justice and equity to the people of Oregon and along the way to his bank account. It's a richly deserved award for his many years of service to the Great Grift.

  2. How the hell that makes any difference. He's legitimately in the U.S. and the justice dept. can assert jurisdiction for any crimes he committed here. As if the Bahamas is going to abrogate the treaty if he is prosecuted for crimes other than the one(s) he was extradited for.

    1. No kidding. I never heard such a crock. And the media plays right along.

  3. In my youth I heard the saying, “never air your family’s dirty laundry in public”.

    It makes sense the the media won’t energetically publish this, since the media is part of the Democrat family..
