Rep Tlaib & AOC Both Likely Violated Financial Laws & Dems Don't Care

That's weird, didn't the same thing just happen to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez? And Jeb Bush? Why do lawmakers have such a hard time following the laws?

Before we all forget about what she did (people have a short memory), let that the record show that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. is the latest progressive in the political hot-seat after her campaign records revealed she paid herself $17,500 as a salary after the midterm elections, in what appears to be a violation of campaign finance rules.

Tlaib, a close ally to radical anti-Israel activists, caused uproar on Capitol Hill earlier this month by insinuating Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., her colleague on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, used Lynne Patton, an African-American, as a racist “prop” during former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s Congressional hearing.

But recent filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) suggest Tlaib’s campaign paid her a salary of about $4,000 every month since May 2018 up until the general election Nov. 6.

According to the filings, as first spotted by the Washington Free Beacon, Tlaib also paid herself $2,000 on Nov. 16 and a whopping $15,500 on Dec. 1 – weeks after the election was over,.

This is all an apparent violation of FEC statutes.

It doesn't look good for Tlaib. So again, I gotta ask, why do Americans keep electing lawmakers who don't follow the law?
