So, Who Would You Say Is the WORST Person to Put in Charge of a Food Bank?

Say hello to “Johnnie” (née Jennifer) Shaver, a progressive activist in Portland. You ask, what kind of “activism” does Johnnie do?

If you guessed “running a food bank,” you’re a winner:

Questions about financial misconduct have arisen over a viral Antifa crowdfunding campaign that raised over $100,000 on the promise of supporting Portlanders in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
A week before Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued a state-wide stay-at-home order on March 23, a group of left-wing activists in Portland started a GoFundMe campaign. The “PDX COVID-19 Mutual Aid Network Fundraiser” was an immediate success. Accompanied by a logo of a raised fist in between roses (Portland is known as the “City of Roses”), the campaign instantly surpassed its initial goal of $5,000. The page, which said it will be “withdrawing funds and delivering them to community members on a rolling basis,” was shared and retweeted far beyond the Pacific Northwest. It promised to center those who are “targeted and marginalized under capitalism.” Local food co-ops joined in by asking patrons if they wanted to donate to the fund during check-out. Artists and other activists organized their own sub-campaigns where proceeds were donated to the GoFundMe. With the outpouring of international support, the organizers raised the donation goal several times. The goal eventually was raised to $100,000—a near 2,000 percent increase. Within a few weeks, this goal was met. . . .

You can read the rest by Andy Ngo, who reports that there are questions about where the money raised by this “Mutual Aid Network” went. I don’t want to speculate publicly, but let’s just say I’ve got a hunch.

UPDATE: Thanks to Joe Guelph in the comments for pointing out that Jennifer/“Johnnie” Shaver is engaged (or married) to Jaclyn “Jackie” Spencer. This is the happy couple, with Jackie on the left:


Jackie works for the local public school system, because in Portland, they’re “inclusive” like that. So inclusive, in fact, that no Christian family would send their children to Portland public schools.
