Congresswoman Rachida Tlaib (D-MI), a member of the infamous far-left “squad,” is being investigated by the House Ethics Committee for misuse of campaign funds. Tlaib was already under scrutiny by the committee, but they said this week that the investigation will be expanded after the Office of Congressional Ethics passed over more evidence against the 43-year-old radical.
Emails reveal that in April 2018, Tlaib began bombarding her campaign manager with frantic emails asking for money. There are strict rules about what campaign donations can be used for, and those rules don’t cover car maintenance and childcare — but that’s what Tlaib wanted money for. She also emailed future chief of staff Ryan Anderson at 6:38 one morning, saying she needed money because she was trying to get out of debt.
The congresswoman apparently received checks worth thousands of dollars from her campaign, which she used to make up for having quit her second job to run for Congress. While campaigns are allowed to pay candidates a small stipend during a campaign, Tlaib appears to have still been taking money after the 2018 elections — and that’s potentially a breach of federal law.
