It is always a little amusing when you see the number of people on the Democratic side of the aisle that accuse Republicans of horrible things and then end up getting charged with something themselves.
Take Congresswoman Tlaib for example. She has been accusing President Trump of everything you can think of and while they haven’t found anything that a reasonable person could say was criminal, Tlaib has done so many things in the past year alone that if crime were a contest you’d have to shut the thing down and give her first prize.
Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib is facing a House Ethics Committee probe based on allegations that she frantically requested personal money from her campaign, according to Fox News.
The committee recently released a series of documents containing internal communications between Tlaib and her staff and has “expanded” the investigation on a recommendation from the Office of Congressional Ethics.
Texts and emails from the document dump show Tlaib, a member of the “squad” of radical-left freshman lawmakers, desperately begging her staff to redirect campaign funds into her personal accounts.
For example, she wrote an April 2018 email claiming that she was “struggling financially right now” and “sinking.”
“So I was thinking the campaign could loan me money, but Ryan said that the committee could actually pay me,” Tlaib continued in the same message, referring to her future chief of staff, Ryan Anderson. “I was thinking a one time payment of $5k.
In a different message, she claimed that she was “just not going to make it through the campaign without a stipend.”
“With the loss of a second income to lean back on, I am requesting $2,000 per two weeks but not exceeding $12,000,” Tlaib wrote. “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.”
Text messages between Tlaib and Anderson further outline her pleas.
“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,” she asked.
