RFK Jr. Renews Demand For Secret Service Protection After Assassination Of Ecuadorian Candidate

• https://www.zerohedge.com by Savannah Hulsey Point

Mr. Kennedy's campaign manager Dennis Kucinich publicly called on President Biden to order Secret Service protection for Mr. Kennedy following the assassination of an Ecuadorian anti-corruption presidential candidate.

Ecuador presidential candidate Fernando Villavicencio who recently promised to get rid of corruption and lock up the country's drug runners, was shot and killed at a political rally in Quito, the capital.

Mr. Villavicencio, 59, was killed on Aug. 9, less than two weeks before a special presidential election. He was known for speaking out against drug gangs, and while he wasn't a front-runner, his death has caused increased concern about organized crime.

"The killing of Mr. Villavicencio proves how volatile the political climate has become," Mr. Kucinich said in a press release sent to The Epoch Times.

"Yesterday the FBI confronted a man who had threatened President Biden, an incident that led to the man being shot dead by government agents."

Mr. Kucinich, a 16-year member of Congress, continued:

"Mr. Kennedy has met all criteria for protection. The only conceivable reason he is being denied is because of a conscious decision by the White House to deny him security and [expletive] the consequences."
