Here we go. Rashida Tlaib, one the loudest most obnoxious members of “The Squad,” is in trouble over payments she received after she won her election.
The House Ethics Committee announced Monday that it is reviewing a complaint against Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who has gained notoriety as a member of the group of far-left freshman congresswomen known as “The Squad.”
The committee did not disclose the nature of the complaint against Ms. Tlaib, Michigan Democrat. But she has faced questions recently about collecting paychecks from her campaign after Election Day in violation of campaign finance rules.
Campaign records showed that Ms. Tlaib paid herself $17,500 in salary after the midterm elections, in what appeared to be a violation of the rules, according to a report in March by The Washington Free Beacon.
Federal Election Commission rules prohibit candidates from paying themselves out of campaign coffers after the election or whenever the campaign ends.
Very interesting. This is pretty low level corruption, but who knows what else they might find. To be fair, this is just an inquiry, it might all be legal. But we’ll keep an eye on this story as it develops…
