What happens when a social justice warrior’s rape record intersects with his run for student body president?
The startling past of Tony Funchess has come to light. Currently running for student body president of Portland State University, someone distributed a flyer around the college detailing Mr. Funchess’ criminal past, which centered around a 3 year jail term for 2 sex abuse charges; Sodomy III and Attempted Rape II.
According to court documents obtained by Progressives Today/Gateway Pundit, on January 1st, 2000, then 23 year old Funchess “intentionally took a substantial step toward having sexual intercourse” with a female who was 13 years old at the time. On March 22nd, 2005, a then 28 year old Funchess “knowingly” engaged in sexual activity with a female who was 16 years old, who happened to be his pastor’s niece.
Tony Augustino Funchess is a well known social justice advocate throughout the city, at one time serving as the Vice President for the Portland chapter of the NAACP, and has been seen at several events, including giving speeches at Micheal Brown #Ferguson rallies where he called for reparations. Funchess also actively opposed the arming of campus security, giving a speech where he claims that “Guns DO jump out of holsters and kill folks”, while also attempting to guilt a black university administrator into opposing the proposal.
It is further revealed that Mr. Funchess had a warrant for his arrest that included 4 additional counts; Sexual Abuse I, Rape III, and 2 counts of Sexual Abuse III, which appear to have been dropped after a plea bargain. Furthermore, Funchess owed back child support, and a portion of his bond money was confiscated to cover that. Funchess had also been previously arrested for, but not convicted, of Domestic Violence (3 times), Aggravated Assault, Child Abuse, Threats/Intimidation, Kidnapping, and Assault in several separate incidences.
If elected, will #YesAllWomen still consider the student government a safe space?
