Shawn Lucas, an activist and Bernie Sanders supporter, could hardly contain his excitement as he served the Democratic National Convention Services Corp. and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz papers just a month ago. He was doing something he truly believed – assisting his fellow Bernie Sanders supporters in a fraud class action suit against DNC officials.
Here’s a video of Lucas below, accompanied by filmmaker Ricardo Villaba as they serve the papers to the DNC right before Independence Day.
Unfortunately, Lucas was found dead just days ago, lying on his bathroom floor. His death is a mystery, according to Snopes:
We contacted Lucas’ employer on 4 August 2016 to ask whether there was any truth to the rumor. According to an individual with whom we spoke at that company, Shawn Lucas died on 2 August 2016. The audibly and understandably shaken employee stated that interest in the circumstances of Lucas’ death had prompted a number of phone calls and other queries, but the company had not yet ascertained any details about Lucas’ cause of death and were unable to confirm anything more than the fact he had passed away.
An unconfirmed report holds that Lucas was found lying on the bathroom floor by his girlfriend when she returned home on the evening of 2 August 2016. Paramedics responding to her 911 call found no signs of life.
This just feeds Republican rumors that the Clintons murder regular people who stand against their tyrranical rule (sarcasm). On July 8th, 27-year-old Seth Conrad Rich was murdered, yet his killers left behind all of his valuables. There was a rumor on Reddit that Rich had been on his way to see the FBI before he was killed, with the intention to bring up an “ongoing court case” that may have involved the Clintons.
And in another strange event, former UN official John Ashe passed away from accidentally crushing his throat while exercising on June 22. The Republican conspiracy theory is that he died just days before he had a court appearance to testify against the Clinton family and the Democrat Party. Snopes considers that to be “mostly false” (source).
