What happened: A Penn State professor who donated to Elizabeth Warren's failed presidential campaign was arrested this week for having sex with his dog.
• Themis Matsoukas, 64, was caught on tape—naked from the waist down except for shoes and socks—performing bestiality with his collie in Rothrock State Forest in Pennsylvania.
• "I do it to blow off steam," the chemical engineering professor reportedly told park rangers earlier this month during a search of his home.
• The alleged pervert was charged with "open lewdness, indecent exposure, and sexual intercourse with an animal, misdemeanors, and summary charges of cruelty to animals and disorderly conduct," according to the New York Post.
By the numbers: Matsoukas donated at least $331 to Warren's presidential campaign between 2019 and 2020. He also donated to Hillary Clinton's and John Kerry's presidential campaigns in 2016 and 2004, respectively. He has donated more than $1,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, and $0 to Republicans.
Context: Warren is sometimes referred to as "Pocahontas" because she lied for decades about having Native American ancestry. The results of a DNA test published in 2018 revealed that she is roughly 0.1 percent Native American.
• In April 2019, several months before Matsoukas started donating to her campaign, Warren unveiled a controversial "free college" proposal on Vladimir Lenin's birthday.
Why it matters: Um, what the f—?
Bottom line: This is the future liberals want.
