The House Ethics Panel released new information this week regarding Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib; showing the committee is recommending a thorough investigation into her likely “misuse of campaign funds.”
“The report focuses on payments received by Tlaib from her campaign after the Nov. 6, 2018, election, but before she assumed her House seat,” reports The Hill. “According to the report, Tlaib received $2,000 on Nov. 16 and $15,500 on Dec. 1. The congresswoman received additional payments totaling $28,000 prior to the election, according to the report.”
“Under federal campaign finance guidelines, candidates are generally allowed to receive payments from their campaigns, but the payments must be for work performed prior to the election, not after,” adds The Hill.
“I look forward to the Ethics Committee’s prompt resolution of this matter in my favor,” Tlaib said in a written statement, “and I hope my experience will clear more room for people like me to run for office by availing themselves of FEC innovations that level the playing field, like paying a non-incumbent candidate salary or covering childcare expenses with campaign funds, so that financial privilege is not a prerequisite to participate in our democracy.”
