It doesn't take long for the swamp to corrupt a freshman lawmaker.
Take Democratic representatives Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) & Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Ny.) for example. Both of these women campaigned off their disdain for capitalism and, not surprisingly, they both seem to love money.
Tlaib paid herself $45,500 from her campaign's funds during the midterm elections, according to the Federal Election Commission.
An FEC spokesperson said that a candidate can pay themselves after the general election only for activity that occurred up to the day of the election.
Following the general election, Tlaib cut herself a $2,000 check on Nov. 16 and disbursed $15,500 to herself on Dec. 1, which was well above the average of what she was paying herself during the campaign.
Meanwhile socialist Barbie AOC has a financial scandal of her own brewin'.
Last week the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a complaint with the FEC alleging AOC may have illegally funneled money to her boyfriend through an allied PAC, according to Fox News.
PAC money?! But AOC said PAC money was evil!
The complaint states: "The timing and amounts of these transactions, the use of two affiliated entities as intermediaries, the vague and amorphous nature of the services Riley ostensibly provided, the magnitude of these transactions compared to both the limited funds the campaign had raised at the time and the total amount of its expenditures, and the romantic relationship between Ocasio-Cortez and Riley collectively establish reason to believe these transactions may have violated campaign finance law."
AOC has dismissed these charges as nothing but a conspiracy against her.
