First of all, thanks to the generosity of our readers, my mother-in-law’s fundraiser for the Walk for Life to benefit Richland Pregnancy Services has nearly doubled its original goal of $500. With about 36 hours to go until Saturday’s event, if only someone gave $64, they’d be at $1,000.

Speaking of pregnancy, you may remember the shooting in Kansas City, where 26-year-old Leona Hale told police she was pregnant when they tried to arrest her for carjacking, and then she got shot by the cops. A witness claimed that Hale was unarmed, but now the prosecutor has released this image from a police officer’s body camera.

Is that a pistol in your hand, or are you just happy to see me? Hale has been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful use of a weapon and a misdemeanor of resisting a lawful detention. And speaking of criminals who are going to prison . . .

Yes, former MSNBC/CNN star Michael Avenatti — whom Brian “Tater” Stelter promoted as a 2020 presidential candidate — is going to have lots of time to think about his future in the penitentiary:

Disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti was sentenced to four years in prison by a federal judge Thursday for stealing nearly $300,000 in book advance money from porn star Stormy Daniels.
A portion of his sentence will be served concurrent to time he’s already doing in a separate extortion case — but the fallen lawyer will have to serve 30 months of the new sentence after that, Manhattan federal Judge Jesse Furman ordered.
During the sentencing hearing, Avenatti, wearing beige jail fatigues, choked up at times as he addressed Furman, describing how his life had been upended since his arrests on a number of federal charges.
“I’ve brought embarrassment and ridicule upon myself and innocent third parties, including my family, my children, my friends and the legal profession,” he told Furman.
“I have destroyed my career, my relationships and my reputation and done collateral damage to my family and my life. There is serious doubt as to how or if I will recover any semblance of a normal life or peace,” Avenatti added.
The loudmouth lawyer, who rose to national fame during Donald Trump’s presidency by representing Daniels, stole two book advance payments from the porn star in 2018 that totaled nearly $300,000, a jury found at his trial earlier this year.

Maybe he could strike up a pen pal relationship with Amber Heard.

They seem to have so much in common . . .
