It’s another Democrat Campaign funds scandal. And it was ‘the Squad’ again? How very ‘unexpected’.
Does anyone else notice how Democrats like to accuse everyone ELSE of being corrupt but turn a blind eye to their own problems?
It’s hardly a new problem. Investor’s Business Daily called out Obama’s staff for being shady in 2012:
A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama’s executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven’t paid any share, let alone their fair share.
We’ve Reported on red flags that were seen with how AOC’s chief of staff handled her campaign money, and how Ilhan Omar was giving big money to a staffer she was said to be sleeping with.
Now it’s Rashida Tlaib’s turn to face an ethics committee over how she’s handled her campaign finances.
The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process.
The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Additionally, the Ethics Committee acknowledged for the first time on Thursday an investigation into Florida Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings concerning a “personal relationship with an individual employed in his congressional office.”
These complaints are not being pulled out of thin air, either. They examined Tlaib’s communications with her Campaign.
“With the loss of a second income to lean back on,” she wrote. “I am requesting $2,000 per two weeks but not exceeding $12,000. The cost of living stipend is going towards much needed expenses due to campaigning that includes car maintenance, child care and other necessities. Please let me know if I can proceed.”
In August of that year, Tlaib texted her future chief of staff Ryan Anderson at 6:38 a.m.: “Sorry for the early text but do you think the campaign can still pay me a stipend until the general. Trying to get out of debt.”
“I think we definitely afford to do so. But we need to really clearly define your time and space,” Anderson responded, noting that the arrangement could arouse “concern” among the media.
The OCE also attached scans of checks made out to Tlaib from her campaign, totaling thousands of dollars.
The woman who splashed onto the scene bragging about how she would impeach the M****** F****** has reason to worry about investigations into her OWN conduct.
Her lawyer is spinning it that she had ‘no bad intentions’. Well isn’t that cute?
This could go further than just being an ethics violation. There is even the possibility that this could lead to a criminal investigation.
And here she is, still sitting on a House Committee, while a Republican who had made an objectionable statement forfeited his committee seat.
