Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan broke election law, an investigation by the House Ethics Committee has found.
As a result, the far left member of Congress will be fined $10,800 dollars.
Just The News reported:
House ethics panel concludes ‘Squad’ member Tlaib violated campaign law, must repay $10,800
The House Ethics Committee unanimously ruled Friday that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, a Michigan Democrat and member of the rebellious group of liberals known as “the Squad,” violated election law by paying herself campaign funds after winning the 2018 election.
The committee concluded that Tlaib’s violations were the result of “bad timing” and not “ill intent” and that her only penalty should be to repay within a year $10,800 in monies she improperly collected.
The ruling was made public just a few days after Tlaib won a tough primary race on Tuesday.
“The Committee has determined that Representative Tlaib’s receipt of a portion of the post-general election payments violated FECA’s personal use restrictions because: (1) it represented a salary payment that covered a time period after she ceased being a candidate; and (2) it represented a deferred compensation payment that covered a time period after she ceased being a candidate,” the committee’s official report declared.
Candidates for federal office may pay themselves a reasonable salary during a campaign, which must cease after Election Day.
There seems to be a pattern here.
Democrat Rashida Tlaib violated federal election law by paying herself an excessive salary out of her 2018 campaign funds according to the House Ethics Committee
Why does 'The Squad' keep getting away with breaking our laws?

The House Ethics Committee found that Rep Rashida Tlaib violated campaign finance rules by receiving a campaign salary when she was no longer a candidate.
This is the same type of offense that caused Dinesh D'Souza to face endless attacks from the left and 8 months in lock-down!

And the liberal media will ignore this because they just love the Squad.
