After AOC Busted In Ethics Fiasco, Rashida Tlaib Caught Violating Campaign Finance Laws

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


First, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was busted in an ethics fiasco.

Now, fellow freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib (MI) is facing a serious problem of her own.

From Daily Caller:

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib reportedly paid herself $17,500 from her election campaign funds — after she won her midterm election in November 2018.

That appears to be a violation of campaign finance rules, the Washington Free Beacon reported Friday. In total, campaign records reveal that the congresswoman paid herself a salary of $45,000 before and after the election.

FEC rules state that campaign funds can no longer be transferred to a candidate once that person ceases to be a candidate.

After her win in November, Tlaib celebrated while draped in the Palestinian flag.

Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, was found to have a government email address.

Her team was quick to say that Roberts was not a member of AOC’s staff, therefore he’s not earning a salary.

From Daily Mail:

Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti also argued the move was normal for a spouse or partner.

He wrote: ‘He’s not paid. We have no volunteers in the office. He’s not doing any government work. He can see her calendar just like spouses/partners/family members in other congressional office.

But something’s up.

You see, Roberts is actually listed in Alexandria’s staff directory.

LOOK:

Is this a “major ethics violation?”

Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk says, yup.

Alexandria’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti openly supports a man who was an Hitler “ally.”

S. Mitra Kalita has a blue checkmark on Twitter and works in the programming department for CNN.

She sent the following tweet:

Seeing the words “prepared” and “authentic” to describe @AOC, often with surprise that she’s made it so far. This is the superpower of women of color: to prep more than everyone else, read the room, yet stay true to yourself because the alternative ain’t worth it. Just guessing.

Self-described Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responded, essentially playing the victim card:

People think it’s a joke when folks say we have to work 2x as hard for the same seat.

Whether you believe it or not, the upside is when we do get here,we’re used to being held to a diff bar. To being doubted. To getting new hoops thrown @ us last min.

So we know how to perform.

Twiter took notice, and things quickly backfired on Alexandria:
