Debbie Wasserman Schultz Tops The List Of Congress' Most Corrupt Members


A few days ago, we saw how a Debbie Wasserman Schultz ally at the Broward County board of elections destroyed ballots in the middle of a court case ton determine how many votes Wasserman Schultz stole to "win" the 2016 primary that was likely won by reformer Tim Canova. But even apart from that, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a conservative watch dog group, just named her the second most corrupt member of Congress. Actually, the list she's on is the Top 5 Worst Ethics Violators of the year.
“FACT addressed a number of ethical violations this year ranging from the misuse of government resources to egregious campaign finance violations,” said Kendra Arnold, FACT’s executive director. “While each violation is different, at the heart of each case is a public official brazenly disregarding our nation’s laws and placing their own political interests above the law and the public good.

  ...First place went to still unknown members of Congress who were helped by $17 million paid out by the Office of Compliance (OOC)’s sexual harassment settlement fund over the last 20 years.

  “While Congress is exempt from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), FACT maintains that this is even more reason why releasing this information quickly is important-- not only for the purposes of ensuring transparency in government, but to hold public officials accountable for unethical and criminal behavior,” FACT noted. 

Wasserman Schultz placed second on the list.

  “In July, FACT filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) against Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz for continuing to employ and compensate House IT aide, Imran Awan after he was barred from the House computer system and under criminal investigation. According to FACT’s complaint, Wasserman Schultz refused to remove Awan from House payroll and compensated Awan with taxpayer funds for several months-- even though he was barred from the House computer system which would prevent him from performing any reasonable IT work. In fact, Wasserman Schultz only fired Awan after he was arrested on bank fraud charges attempting to flee the country the morning of July 25, 2017. Wasserman Schultz is in clear violation of House Ethics Rules as members are directly responsible for ensuring their staff are only paid for official public work.”
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust is widely viewed as a Republican Party front group and is rarely right about anything. But they did get #1 and #2 right this year. They have no axe to grind with Wasserman Schultz. The GOP doesn't contest her congressional district, which has a D+11 PVI and which Hillary won 61.9% to 35.8%.

Goal ThermometerSee how fast House Democrats and their leaders moved to railroad John Conyers and Ruben Kihuen out of Congress? A black guy and a Latino guy. Wasserman Schultz's serial corrupt activities aren't serious enough for them? Or is it just that they don't treat a white women the way they can treat men of color? How can the Democratic Party expect anyone to trust them as they cling onto garbage like Wasserman Schultz who, in fact, still harbors delusions about becoming Speaker of the House. If you'd like to help retire her, please consider contributing to Tim Canova's campaign by clicking on the Blue America primary thermometer on the right.

let's just say DWS is the most CRIMINALLY corrupt. The list of LEGALLY corrupt is hundreds of names long and is split between Rs and Ds (getting their bribes legally from the same sources). In dollars, Pelosi is the democraps' champion whore. Much of her earnings is used to buy corrupt underlings and prevent progressives from earning seats.

Thankfully for Pelosi and her johns, voters are too gullible and stupid to figger all this out.
