From Fox News:
The campaign of “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has paid out over $100,000 for “fundraising consulting” to a Florida-based progressive firm founded and operated by a defund the police and anti-Israel activist, campaign filings show.
Tlaib’s campaign and PAC sent $96,000 in payments between March 2020 and March 2021 for “fundraising consulting” to Unbought Power LLC, a Florida-based firm that specializes in grassroots organizing and advocacy consulting. The campaign paid out another $18,000 to Unbought Power between April 2021 and June 2021, Federal Election Commission records released last Thursday show.
Rasha Mubarak, the Palestinian-American activist who founded Unbought Power in March 2020, has been involved in grassroots advocacy for over 15 years and has assisted with Tlaib’s political career over the course of the last decade. In March 2019, Mubarak tweeted that she “mobilized” her first political fundraiser 9 years earlier and said it was for Tlaib, who responded that she “can’t wait” to organize a political fundraiser for her.
Mubarak, who has publicly called for defunding the police multiple times, tweeted back in April that she believes the United States should “abolish the police.” In two separate tweets from July 2020, Mubarak called for Orange County to “defund the police.”
The Florida activist has also tweeted about her involvement with Dream Defenders, an activist group that was co-founded by self-described socialist and former Bernie Sanders surrogate, Phillip Agnew.
Dream Defenders has been vocal about defunding the police across their social media platforms. Last June, Mubarak tweeted a link to a Dream Defenders “Sunday School” session video about how to defund the police and encouraged her followers to donate to their bail fund amid the riots last summer. She also encouraged her followers to donate to the Dream Defenders organization.
In addition to advocating for defunding the police, she has used her Twitter account to push anti-Israel rhetoric.

'UNACCEPTABLE': Bernie, AOC, Tlaib Rip Bipartisan $900B CoVID Bill, Demand ‘Direct Payments’ to Americans
Far-left politicians slammed the bipartisan CoVID relief package making its way through the US Senate this week; saying the bill fails to deliver “direct payments” to working-class Americans and struggling small businesses.
“It is unacceptable that the proposal does not even do what the CARES Act did and provide, at the very least, a $1,200 direct payment to working-class Americans and $500 for their kids,” Sanders said in a statement last week. “Tens of millions of Americans living in desperation today would receive absolutely no financial help from this proposal. That is not acceptable.”
Canada did $2,000/monthly. The US is the richest nation on earth and a 2nd stimulus check is getting blocked bc GOP want corporate bailouts & austerity in “exchange” for it.
Maybe if everyone in the US incorporated as an LLC, Mitch McConnell would actually do something for them.

“Stimulus check now (monthly)!” tweeted Rep. Rashida Tlaib. “It would have the most impact on lives, especially children.”

A NEW LOW: Rashida Tlaib Accuses STEVE SCALISE of ‘Islamophobia’ for Condemning Anti-Semitism
Recently sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib blasted GOP Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday evening; accusing the lawmaker of “Islamophobia” after he demanded Ilhan Omar be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee for her anti-Semitic statements.
“Hard to watch Rep. Scalise demand that Rep. @IlhanMN be removed from House Foreign Affairs w/o wondering if it’s steeped in Islamophobia. Ilhan is more than capable of sitting on the committee & making decisions that are in the best interests of her constituents & all Americans,” posted Tlaib on social media.

Omar made national headlines earlier this year after she accused “evil” Israel of “hypnotizing” the world and flat-out refused to condemn Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.
