Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) is back in the news again for all the wrong reasons.
One would think that after the initial scandal broke regarding her paying her husband from campaign funds, she would have stopped.
Now, actually, she has added him to her payroll to the tune of $90,000 since the beginning of this term, reported Fox News.
The revelation was made when Bush finally filed her quarterly paperwork, which was a week late, according to St. Louis Today.
Keep It in the Family
When payments to Cortney Merritts were first discovered, they were only dating and he was allegedly providing security protection for Bush.
The funny thing is that Merritts, at least as of February, had never been licensed to provide private security.
When the story went viral, his "pay" was changed from security on her disclosure forms to "wage expenses." This was doing nothing more than moving the columns around to ensure that hubby was still dipping his mitts into the government till.
Among other groups, complaints have been filed by the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) and the Committee to Defeat the President.
The Committee to Defeat the President is now ramping up the pressure, trying to expose the fact that the former BLM leader is nothing but a grifter, worthy of "The Distinguished Gentleman."
Ted Harvey, chairman of the Committee to Defeat the President stated, "It turns out members of 'The Squad' aren't the progressive revolutionaries they claim to be; they're just run-of-the-mill Beltway grifters.
"She either paid her ex-lover and now-husband to perform illegal work, or just paid him meretriciously. But, either way, she broke the law and fumbled the cover-up. Americans deserve better, and our Committee is determined to hold her accountable in Washington, D.C., and back in Missouri, the same way any Republican would be held accountable by the radical Left."
This is how DC operates, though, right?
Joe Biden did the same thing right out of the gate as a young Senator, hiring his sister as his campaign manager and his brother as his treasurer, even though neither had any experience. It was all about getting them paid, something he continued to do throughout his career.
Bush, of course, did not respond to inquiries about the report.
