Since All Gun Control Is Racist, which makes ALL Gun Grabbers racist... glad we went on ahead and pointed that elephant out. Now... moving on...
As many know, the Mom-At-Arms team helped expose some David Chipman shenanigans regarding Chipman’s conflicts of interest (donations, wife working at the ATF in a leadership role).

Well, glad to drop this today, as Steve Dettelbach (former federal attorney from Ohio) is supposedly going to be tapped for the job. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/biden-reportedly-nominating-another-gun-grabber-head-atf
The Biden administration is allegedly taking another crack at nominating a new anti-gun nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) after learning from their failed attempt to nominate radical gun-control advocate David Chipman last year, according to Politico, citing multiple sources close to the White House.
The report states that two people familiar with the Biden administration's discussions indicated 'serious' consideration is underway for Steve Dettelbach, a former federal attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, to become the new ATF nominee.
He was endorsed by Everytown and Moms Demand Action when he ran for AG of Ohio a few years ago, but here’s his recent 2020 donations to the guy (Biden) that is supposedly going to nominate him. Total it seems is $5600. in the last election cycle. Lots more given to DNC candidates (and the DNC itself), including some that will be required to vote for him to be confirmed. More in FEC link. https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/individual-contributions/?contributor_name=Steve%20Dettelbach
Joe endorsed him to in 2018:
And this is interesting. He doesn’t like the Amish religious practices I guess lol. A case he prosecuted was reversed.
Dettelbach's office prosecuted 16 members of a breakaway sect of an Amish community in Jefferson County. They were charged with carrying out five nighttime raids and beard cuttings. In the attacks, members of the community rousted five victims out of bed and chopped off their beards and hair with horse-mane shears and battery-powered clippers. The attackers documented the attacks with a disposable camera.
They were convicted of multiple crimes in September 2012, including committing hate crimes. The move to charge them federally was a point of contention, as some said the defendants could have been charged in state court.
A federal appeals court reversed the hate-crime convictions in 2014, citing faulty jury instructions.
And just food for thought....
Ohio's Democratic attorney general candidate is facing a potential conflict of interest that could affect his ability to prosecute the pharmaceutical industry in the state's lawsuit over the opioid crisis if he is elected.
Former U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach has professional ties to a lawyer for one of five pharmaceutical companies sued by the state, a review by The Associated Press found.
Attorney Carole Rendon served as Dettelbach's first assistant U.S. Attorney and briefly succeeded him when he resigned as U.S. Attorney in Cleveland. He later recruited her to his team at BakerHostetler, a law firm where health care industry cases are among his specialties.
Rendon represents Endo Pharmaceuticals in the lawsuit that Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine brought last year against five drugmakers.
The suit alleges the drug companies were complicit in causing Ohio's addictions epidemic by intentionally misleading patients about the dangers of painkillers and promoting benefits of the drugs not backed by science.
