Busted! Another Democrat was caught in a bribery scheme, the hypocrisy indeed flows in the veins of Democrats.

US House of Representatives Ethics committee on January 24th has revealed that Congresswoman Marie Newman (D-IL) has signed and agreed to a contract that guarantees a six-figure salary to a Palestinian-American professor at Columbia College Chicago and failed congressional candidate,  Iymen Chehade.

Professor Iymen Chehade said in a statement, “Israel is committing crimes against the Palestinian people. And the college is taking the position of supporting a settler-colonialist state that has waged a war against a people for decades.”

Newman may not only break the contract but she also happens to be only attempting to hire Mr. Chehade to avoid competition between her.

RollCall reported:

“The OCE found that Mr. Chehade’s policy expertise was not the only reason she contracted to employ him in the future. Instead, Rep. Newman likely was motivated to enter the agreement to avoid competing against Mr. Chehade in the next Democratic primary.”

Wow, Newman just revealed how a Democrat she is.

The report added, “In the explosive document released by the committee: an employment contract signed with Chehade, Newman stipulated that upon her successful election, beginning with her first term in office, she would hire Chehade as her “Chief Foreign Policy Advisor” and either a District Director or Legislative Director as long as she remained in office. The jobs would pay Iymen handsomely for stepping aside to the tune of $135,000 and $140,000 per year. However, Newman welched on the deal, leading him to file a lawsuit shortly after which was quietly settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.”

Arguing that the agreement between Newman and Chehade was signed by the Congresswoman as a private citizen and not in an official capacity, as she was not yet in Congress, insane!

“Although the agreement was signed by Congresswoman Newman in her capacity (because she had no official capacity in which to act before her election), it purports to bind her in her official capacity to hire Mr. Chehade in her Congressional office,” Letter said in the filing.

 Later on, Iymen Chehade has stood up and may get a shot at the congress.

When a snake bites a snake, the snake becomes the victim and gets sympathy? Wait a minute…I think the Democrats are ratting themselves out!
