South Carolina Democratic Rep. James Clyburn funneled six figures worth of campaign cash to two of his family members throughout the 2022 election cycle, filings show.
The longtime congressman’s campaign largesse included forking tens of thousands of dollars over to a company linked to his son-in-law. He also sent nearly $100,000 to his grandson, Federal Election Commission records show.
While it’s legal for federal politicians to pay family members from their campaigns, ethics experts have generally disapproved of the practice. Despite this, both political parties have taken advantage of the perk.
Clyburn’s family payments the last election cycle include $57,500 to 49 Magnolia Blossom LLC for rent expenses, filings show. That company has close ties to his daughter, Jennifer Clyburn Reed.
According to South Carolina business records, Clyburn Reed’s husband, Walter A Reed, is the registered agent of the limited liability company.
Clyburn also paid out $94,000 to his grandson Walter A.C. Reed during the midterm election cycle for “campaign management fees,” his filings further show.
Politicians serve themselves. Our system is broken.
I think I found the problem;
“ While IT’S LEGAL for federal politicians to pay family members from their campaigns, ethics experts have generally disapproved of the practice.”
Teeny tip of the iceberg.
We get the best politicians money can buy!
Black grifters gotta keep on grifting. If they couldn’t grift, how else would they pay for their lavish capitalistic lifestyles. And that goes for all the guilty white grifters as well.
Now South Carolina is going to be RUINED. Such a beautiful, mostly patriotic state. Gonna be WOKENED UP as well. I USED to want to move there. Not anymore. Democrats poison red states!
Now South Carolina is going to be RUINED.
