OANN Breaks Leaked Audio Of Kennedy Center President Who Deployed Lobbyist to Secure $25 Million in Coronavirus Bill, Musicians Still Get Fired

The Audio was first obtained by One America News’, Jack Posobiec, and now the Gateway Pundit has gotten their hands on it and made it available for the nation to listen to for ourselves.

Democrats managed to finesse $25 million for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts into the bipartisan Senate coronavirus relief deal.

At the time the Washington Examiner reported:

‘In the $2 trillion coronavirus emergency relief package, the Kennedy Center, which is located in Washington, D.C., got a line item of $25 million for “deep cleaning, increased teleworking capabilities, and operating and administrative expenses to ensure the Center will resume normal operations immediately upon reopening,” according to a supplemental appropriations summary from the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Kennedy Center aid was one of the items included in proposed legislation from the House that was widely criticized as having little to do with addressing the coronavirus pandemic or the wide-scale effect on the economy. The bill from House Democrats, led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, sought $35 million for the Kennedy Center. Other provisions included alternative fuel requirements for airlines, debt forgiveness for the U.S. Postal Service, and mandates for same-day voter registration.’

Well, at least we can keep the people who work at the Kennedy Center getting pay checks, right? WRONG.

ABC News reported:

‘The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., will stop paying its musicians despite expecting to receive some $25 million in aid from the recently signed coronavirus national stimulus package, a union that represents the orchestra said.
