58. Here's Nina saying "evil money" as a way to imply corruption. These are the word games she employs.

This is what my comments referred to about her word games. She got called out on this one, but it goes to her mindset and how she tries to imply evil and corruption to shade people. Copy and paste of formal definitions doesn't take into account people like her who manipulate.

"Nina Turner, who ignited a national conversation on social media with her use of the term “evil money” in her Aug. 3 concession speech, is taking heat from some local Jewish leaders."

“Although Turner’s staff sought to clarify her election night remarks, indicating she was speaking about ‘corporate money, Republican money and Trump allies’ money,’ words matter,” Shapiro wrote in an Aug. 10 email to the CJN. “Intentionally or unintentionally, the language she employed rings of historic antisemitic tropes. There is no place for bigotry, hate or antisemitism in our public discourse. It is the responsibility of political figures to condemn and address antisemitism, and that means taking extra care with phrasing that can be offensive or derogatory. AJC Cleveland has reached out to Turner to discuss issues of concern.”
