After screaming from the rooftops for years that Donald Trump needs to be investigated and impeached, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is getting a taste of her own medicine. Tlaib is being investigated by the House Ethics Committee for misuse of campaign finances during her 2018 Congressional run.
Multiple documents were released by the Ethics committee Thursday which expanded on Tlaib’s shady campaign finances. Her campaign was desperate for money the days leading up to the election. Tlaib requested a stipend of $2,000 every two weeks to cover her “personal expenses.” The stipend wasn’t supposed to be over $12,000.
Four months after the election, Congresswoman Tlaib sent a very questionable text to her eventual Chief-of-Staff. “Do you think the campaign can still pay me a stipend until the general. Trying to get out of debt.” The text was not a good look for Tlaib, who was clearly hungry for extra money.
The bad news for Tlaib is that she may have been breaking the law. In a press release by the Office of Congressional ethics, it was stated that, “Tlaib may have violated federal law if the lawmaker “converted campaign funds from Rashida Tlaib for Congress to personal use, or if Tlaib’s campaign committee expended funds that were not attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes.”
Rashida Tlaib was potentially using campaign donations to stuff into her own pocket. It’s a bad look for the freshman congresswoman who spends all her time talking about how much she hates President Trump. Tlaib’s office has stuck its head in the sand, denying all wrongdoing.
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib needs to answer for her shady actions. She is no saint- she is lining her wallet with campaign donations. Tlaib is yet another symptom of The Swamp. If you agree that Rashida Tlaib needs to be investigated and REMOVED from Congress, sign our Defend US petition today!
