If you needed one more reason to think our government is like the Mafia…
A slush fund scheme via the Department of Justice funneled billions of dollars to liberal activist organizations. The Department of Justice is the last place this should have happened but under Obama our government was turned into a radical fundraising apparatus for progressives. This has Eric Holder and Barack Obama’s fingerprints all over it!
“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations. It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.” – Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch
Here’s how it works: Remember when big banks were sued by the feds for supposed mortgage abuse or discrimination? The government basically extorted money from the banks and then incentivized the banks to settle by giving the money to third-party organizations. How convenient, right? It was a way to redistribute billions to radical organizations like La Raza!
So far, investigators have accounted for $3 billion paid to “non-victim entities”.
“The underlying problem with the slush funds is we don’t know exactly where the money is going. Using enforcement authority to go after corporate defendants, DOJ bureaucrats are taking billions away from taxpayers to fund their pet projects overriding congressional preferences.” – Ted Frank, director of The Competitive Enterprise Institute Center for Class Action Fairness.
FORMER GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE is as shocked as we are that there was no oversight on this ‘slush fund’:
