Democrat mega donor on the run after Ponzi scheme FTX collapses | Eastern North Carolina Now | Sam Bankman-Fried was second largest 2022 Democrat donor after Soros

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Sam Bankman-Fried, 30, has been the second largest political donor to the Democrat Party and its candidates in the 2022 election cycle, second only to George Soros.  Now, just after election day, his crypto currency Ponzi scheme FTX has collapsed, Bankman-Fried resigned from it and disappeared, and at least $515 million and perhaps as much as $2 billion has been removed from FTX customer accounts and disappeared.

Bankman-Fried has been located holed up at a luxury Bahamas resort with two of his top henchmen from FTX.  He is supposedly being watched by Bahamian authorities but is said to be trying to escape to Dubai which has no extradition treaty with the US.  His girlfriend, whose firm is thought to have processed some of the missing money is said to be in Hong Kong on her own way to Dubai.

If this were a major Republican contributor wouldn't this be all over the news?

Republicans should demand that every Democrat campaign that took money from Bankman-Fried pay it into a fund for the victims of his FTX Ponzi scheme.

Sam Bankman-Fried is the new Bernie Madoff, and like Madoff, he is a Democrat contributor and even a much bigger one, sedond largest Democrat contributor this election year, and now it is clear that was with stolen money. What also needs to be investigated is the role of another crypto company, Binance, in keeping this under the radar until after the election, a clearly partisan move. When FTX reached the point of collapse weeks ago, which would have been a pre-election disaster for Democrats, Binance came forward and talked about buying FTX to rescue it. FTX was a Ponzi scheme train wreck and that was never going to happen, but it staved off the explosion until after the election. Then several days after the election, Binance said "never mind".
