NY Dem Rep Meeks Continues to Dish Campaign Cash to Company Owned by Chief of Staff’s Wife

Campaign also put thousands toward Lexus payments.

WFB: Democratic representative Gregory Meeks (N.Y.) continues to push tens of thousands of dollars from his campaign’s coffers to a company owned by the wife of his district chief of staff, Federal Election Commission records show.

Meeks’s campaign committee has managed to raise cash even though he has not faced any real opposition in his heavily Democratic New York district. During the 2018 election cycle, Meeks faced two Democratic challengers, but ran away with the primary, capturing 81 percent of the vote. He ran unopposed in the general election.

Meeks’s lack of any significant opposition has allowed his campaign to also spend generously on credit cards, D.C. consultants, horse racing venues, and luxury car expenses instead of advertisements and other typical expenses associated with competitive campaigns. more

  1. This grifter may not be able to be defeated but the GOP ought to run a candidate anyway just to get advertising out there that shows how he spends campaign money. A 30 sec ad showing the racetrack, credit cards, luxury cars etc etc juxtaposed with a montage of the poverty and sick in his district. May not work in this election but it may start the slide especially if black voters are turning increasingly to Trump.

  2. I wonder if the same idiots who vote for him are the same ones that complain about corruption in government? Who am I kidding – they’re Democrats!
