The House Ethics Committee is directing Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib to reimburse her campaign $10,800 after concluding she improperly received salary payments in late 2018 when she was no longer a candidate.
“The Committee, after further reviewing the allegations, has determined that the evidence is sufficient to support a determination that a portion of the salary payments that Representative Tlaib received after the 2018 general election was inconsistent with the requirements outlined by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971,” the report said. “The Committee also recognizes, however, that Representative Tlaib’s violation of the applicable restrictions was one of bad timing and not ill intent. Representative Tlaib engaged in good faith efforts to comply with the relevant FECA requirements.”

The House Ethics Committee ordered Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) to return $10,800 she paid herself from her campaign, a violation first discovered by the Washington Free Beacon in March 2019.
The committee ruled on Friday that Tlaib violated federal election laws in 2018 when she received $17,500 from her campaign after the election. While Federal Election Committee rules allow candidates to receive a salary from their campaign up to Election Day, candidates are prohibited from receiving contributions after being elected.
Though the payments violated the law, the report said the payments were not made out of “ill intent,” but rather “in bad timing.” More
How convenient that the House Ethics Committee did this after her primary. Is the fix is in? Why do Democrats only get a slap on the wrist? America is tired of the fake Americans pushing their horrific ideology. Time to get her out of office in November.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
