The press has made a big deal about the new class of Democrats rolling into Congress and beyond, touting their ‘diversity,’ their ‘socialism,’ their ‘sisterhood.’
Most of us look at that group and see ‘extremism,’ particularly with the kinds of views they’ve presented, and the obnoxious gaffes they’ve blundered into, apologized for or not. They’re new, after all.
But there’s something different about this batch of Democrats we haven’t seen much in the past: The corruption accusations and investigations surrounding virtually all of them, most pretty solid-looking. Here’s a short list, starting with a Daily Mail report, via GatewayPundit. :
Where has $850m gone? Bill de Blasio’s wife can’t account for staggering amount of taxpayer money that the NY Mayor gave her for mental health project
Bill de Blasio’s wife Chirlane McCray cannot explain where $850million given to the mental health program she champions has gone, according to reports.
Here’s another from Fox News:
Rashida Tlaib’s campaign paid her $17,500 in salary after Election Day, in possible violation of FEC rules: report
Here’s one from the Minnesota House of Representatives:
After receiving the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board’s (CFB) notification that it is conducting a formal investigation into State Representative Ilhan Omar’s campaign committee, Representative Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa) is now filing a new complaint against Omar with the CFB.Drazkowski said he recently discovered Omar used campaign resources for personal travel expenses.“Once again, Representative Omar’s disbursements appear to fall outside of allowable campaign committee expenditures, which continues a troubling pattern of state law violations in this area,” Drazkowski said. “The more we dig, the more problems we find.”
Yet another corruption front for Omar has been in the allegations she married her brother in a bid to get him into the country, effectively engaging in immigration marriage fraud.
Meanwhile, Fox News has an item on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez engaging in corruption in her own way, with this one:
A Republican group filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday alleging that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign may have illegally funneled thousands of dollars through an allied PAC to boyfriend Riley Roberts.
