“Well guess what, I’m not going down like that,” Sheng Thao said.

“The FBI raid at Thao’s house in Oakland’s Lincoln Highlands neighborhood was conducted simultaneously with raids on the homes and an office associated with David and Andy Duong, who, along with other family members, operate California Waste Solutions, Oakland’s contracted recycler.” ABC 7 reported.

“While the FBI didn’t release information about the raid, Thao, the Duongs and Cal Waste are all under investigation by the Oakland Public Ethics Commission, which is looking into alleged illegal campaign finance contributions.” ABC 7 reported.

“There are a lot of radical right wing forces that know they will never win an election in Oakland fair and square,” she said.

“I want to know how the TV cameras knew to show up on my sleepy residential street so early in the morning to capture footage of the raid. And I want to know why Fox News and Breitbart were so prepared to fan the flames and to tell a story that they want to tell, to bend the facts to shape the narrative,” she said.
