Democrat Running For Congress Cries Racism When Caught Driving “Stolen Van”

So stupid. All this guy had to do was follow a couple of simple orders, and it would have been reconciled fairly quickly. He was simply playing “the race card.” This guy definitely shouldn’t be in any elected position.

Isn’t breaking any laws, yet chooses not to comply with law enforcement. Sounds like a smart guy.

From Seattle Times:

Jesse Wineberry, a Democrat running for Congress in the 9th District, says he was racially profiled by Seattle police in a recent incident outside Safeco Field.

In a Thursday news conference, Wineberry also said some of his campaign signs had been destroyed and he received a racially charged phone call — all after a Seattle Times editorial mischaracterized a statement he made in an endorsement interview.

After complying with orders to get out of the minivan, Wineberry said he was placed into handcuffs and read his Miranda rights. Cellphone video taken by a spectator and obtained by his campaign shows Wineberry standing outside the van and surrounded by five police officers while his wrists are placed into handcuffs.

Wineberry said the minivan had been reported stolen after a misunderstanding with the rental-car company. He stated that unbeknown to him, his campaign staff had failed to extend the rental agreement for the van.

After being detained, Wineberry said police transported him to the department’s south precinct. He was released several hours later after investigators “put two and two together,” he said. But before leaving the precinct, Wineberry said he filed a complaint against the department, alleging he was racially profiled.

“I think I was stopped because of the vehicle,” he said, “I think the way I was treated was because I was African American.”

Seattle police quickly released a statement that said Wineberry was “uncooperative” during the traffic stop and offered a video of the entire incident captured by a dashboard camera.

Democrats think they can get away with everything, don’t they? Hey, Liberals are above the Law. Just like their Queen. Lawlessness is a new law these days. Ever notice?
