‘Miss Hitler’ beauty pageant contestant jailed for part in neo-Nazi terror group

She does look the part!

 

A former Miss Hitler beauty pageant contestant has been jailed for three years for being part of a banned extreme right group.

Alice Cutter entered the twisted competition under the name of The Buchenwald Princess – a reference to a Second World War death camp, where 56,545 people were starved to death, executed or died of disease.

The 23-year-old exchanged hundreds of messages with members of hate group National Action, many of which were racist and anti-semitic.

Her ex-partner Mark Jones, a former member of the British National Party’s youth wing, was also convicted of being a member and was jailed for five-and-a-half years today.

Also convicted of the same offence were Garry Jack, from Shard End, and 19-year-old Connor Scothern, of Nottingham.

Today Jack was jailed for four-and-a-half years, while Scothern was handed an 18-month sentence.

Fired State Dept. watchdog was probing whether Pompeo made staffer walk dog, pick up laundry

Editorial: In the Trump administration’s latest episode of “We say ‘drain the swamp,’ but we really mean ‘fill it with swampier people,'” it’s been suggested that the firing of Steve Linick, former State Department Inspector General, was politically motivated.

The shock!

You see, Linick had been investigating reports of Pompeo staff members running personal errands for the Secretary of State. Things such as picking up dry cleaning and walking the dog.
