Democrat corruption knows no bounds.
Most high-profile Democrats, such as Hillary Clinton and President Biden, are more subtle about their corruption and pay-to-play schemes.
One of their favorite tactics is paid speeches, where they charge tens of thousands of dollars a head for speaking engagements to donors who end up padding their pockers.
President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, used his access to Joe for foreign lobbying and then paid kickbacks to the “big man” himself.
Now, a Daily Caller investigation has revealed that Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Il.) paid his family members tens of thousands of dollars in campaign funds.
The payments were made to his ex-wife, Paulette Rush, who received $11,000 from him, and his ex-convict son Jeffrey, who he paid $45,000.
His son was a prison guard in an Illinois correctional facility until he was convicted of having sex with female convicts and sent to jail.
