One of the five Republicans competing to unseat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in November, serial shoplifter and Wing Nut Darling, Danielle Stella, is still campaigning and raising funds despite being on the run from the law for months. As of the end of 2019, Stella has raised over 84K.
Stella insists she hasn’t broken any laws but failed to appear in court last October on felony charges, which prompted a judge to issue a warrant for her arrest.
A spokesman for the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office told The Daily Beast, “We can confirm that she does have an active felony theft warrant in Hennepin County.” Stella did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comments.
Her Republican challengers have expressed concern with Stella’s ‘mounting legal woes’ and how they ‘could undermine whoever eventually faces Omar in the general election.’ The district leans heavily Democratic so whomever becomes the eventual Republican nominee faces an uphill battle in trying to unseat Rep. Omar.
Republican candidate Lacy Johnson said that ‘candidates are reflections of the party in a way, and it’s not a good reflection of the party in a sense.’
As an avid believer in the “QAnon” conspiracy theory, Wing Nut Darling Danielle Stella recently became the focus of a “conspiracy theorist with 50,000 YouTube subscribers who claimed with no evidence during a livestream that Stella was in some unspecified danger at a hotel in Osceola, Wisconsin. Callers from across the country deluged the Osceola hotel with calls, and police were called to the scene. “
A spokeswoman for the Osceola Police Department declined to share an incident report about the event, citing an open investigation.
Last November, Twitter suspended Danielle Stella’s account after she called for hanging Rep. Omar. In her conspiracy polluted mind, Stella “referred to unfounded allegations that have proliferated across right-wing media outlets claiming Omar gave sensitive information to the Iranian government.”
