Government Corruption



American Lookout| Former Florida congresswoman Corrine Brown was convicted of misusing campaign funds and donations to a charity.

The charity was supposedly intended to provide scholarships for students, but it only awarded one worth $1,200. The rest of the money, nearly $800,000, appears to have been funneled to the personal accounts of Brown and her staff.

Brown, a long-time member of Congress, lost her bid for reelection in 2016 amid these charges. Now another Democrat, this time a sitting congressman, is facing similar charges.
According to American Lookout, Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) has been accused of misusing campaign funds.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars of campaign funds have made their way into the bank accounts of Rush’s wife and other organizations in which Rush is personally involved.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Rush paid his wife over half a million dollars from campaign funds. An additional $190,000 went to a church founded by Rush.

Campaign records indicate that this has been occurring for upwards of 15 years. An undisclosed amount of money also went to other members of Rush’s family.

As if that were not enough, more than $14 million in taxpayer-backed government grants were awarded to a wellness center associated with the church he founded in Chicago.”

Rush was elected to Congress in 1992 and began paying his wife ten years later. His wife, Carolyn Rush, was reportedly employed by Rush’s campaign committee, Citizens for Rush.

In 2008, Carolyn Rush also received nearly $100,000 inconsulting services fees for the campaign. In total, the Rush family personally received more than a quarter of the campaign’s total operating expenditures.”

Since 2008, Mrs. Rush has consistently received over $100,000 per election cycle from her husband’s campaign funds for a total of more than $550,000 in campaign funds.

Rush’s actions illustrate much of what is wrong in Washington and with the Democratic Party. Rush’s double standard, attacking President Trump for hiring any of his family members, while simultaneously funneling hundreds of dollars to his wife are cause for his impeachment.

    These people win peoples trust then they screw them. A life term in jail is too lenient.

    Another justifiable excuse for the need for term limits.

    that is the golden goose that congressmen/women get into when they win a seat in DC. this is why they are trying to undermine Trump and keep him from catching a bunch of these criminals. they are trying to keep him off his game by accusing him of any and everything knowing it takes time to prove them wrong…and they can keep on doing what they were doing with their golden goose….get as much money as they can stowed away to live on after they get out of prison cause they cant go back and correct anything now, they will have to take the responsibility when they are caught, no way around it now. this one one of the Golden Goose that they get into when they get into a seat in DC. prior admins looked the other way but now….too late and no way to cover things up cause there are document trails now. things as this start small with maybe one or maybe two people doing things like this then others see what they are or have done and they are going to start especially if they know they will not get prosecuted or just a slap on the hand….that breeds more corruption and the risk is worth taking and you have created more corruption by not prosecuting or just slapping the hand. sure it is worth it, you go from middle class to upper class real quick but not honestly, you do it off the backs of hard working people. now so many knows about the Golden Goose that the same corruption is rampid thru out the swamp. easy now to go get them cause the corruption is basically the same everywhere you look…gonna be easy to catch them, maybe not easy to prosecute them, but at least they can get them, put a bunch in prison and then next ones will be not so quick to want the Golden Goose.
