Far-left, radical U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) raised some red flags for many Americans when upon discovering she had won the seat vacated by the disgraced Detroit Congressman, John Conyers in the 2018 mid-term election, wrapped herself in a Palestinian flag and embraced her Palestinian mother to celebrate her victory.
On the day of her inauguration, Tlaib posed in her traditional Palestinian dress outside of her new congressional office with the popular anti-Semite activist, Linda Sarsour. Inside her office, a new sticky note could be found with the word “Palestine” and arrow drawn, pointing to a territory that is not recognized by the United States as a legitimate nation, but instead, a territory ruled by terror group Hamas.
Since Tlaib became a U.S. lawmaker, the Muslim congresswoman has been criticized for her connections to radical anti-Israel activists.
On the eve of her inauguration into the United States Congress, Rashida Tlaib again, made waves when she told her supporters that earlier, she told her little boy that we are going to go in there and “impeach the motherf**ker!”
Her comments, along with President Trump’s response to her comments can be seen in the video below.
Trump’s response to Rep. Rashida Tlaib:
“I thought her comments were disgraceful. I think she dishonored herself and I think she's dishonored her family. Using language like that in front of her son and whoever else was there, I thought it was highly disrespectful to the USA.” pic.twitter.com/LwHmtmgaNt

Now, according to Fox News, the highly controversial lawmaker is facing questions after campaign records revealed she paid herself $17,500 as a salary after the midterm elections, in what appeared to be a violation of campaign finance rules, a report said.
She caused an uproar on Capitol Hill earlier this week by insinuating that Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C. — her colleague on the House Oversight and Reform Committee — had used Trump family friend Lynne Patton, an African-American, as a racist “prop” during former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s appearance before the panel.

Yet the latest filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) may land the radical congresswoman into hot water with questions on whether her campaign broke the rules after making salary payments to Tlaib after Election Day last year.
Tlaib’s campaign began paying her a salary of about $4,000 every month since May 2018 up until the general election Nov. 6 – a perfectly legal practice if the campaign chose to do so. But according to the filings, as first spotted by the Washington Free Beacon, Tlaib also paid herself $2,000 on Nov. 16 and a whopping $15,500 on Dec. 1 – weeks after the election was over, in an apparent violation of FEC statutes.
The FEC rules state that a general election candidate is allowed to dip into campaign coffers to give himself or herself a salary only up to the election date. The candidate can no longer draw a salary after the election date, or because of other reasons that ended the campaign.
“If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be a candidate, no salary payments may be paid beyond the date he or she is no longer a candidate,” the rules state.
This isn’t the first time the radical Democrat lawmaker’s ethics have been called into question, he also neglected to report a large sum of money she received from radical globalist, George Soros.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) did not disclose the name of the source of funds for a fellowship that was paid by liberal billionaire George Soros—as required by the House ethics committee—and also disclosed a lesser amount than she received, according to a review of tax and financial disclosure forms.
The Washington Free Beacon obtained the most recent copies of tax forms for a number of Soros’s organizations, including the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundations, the entity in which Soros pushes millions in funding to a number of liberal causes and organizations.
An expenditure of $85,307 to Rashida Tlaib in Detroit, Mich., from 2017 is shown on page 97 of the 321-page report to “to increase involvement of disenfranchised urban communities of color with their local governance process by creating a community benefits strategy for equitable development and creating a leadership training for impacted residents focused on negotiation skills and identifying leverage at the local level.”
Tlaib did not report any income in the amount of $85,307 on financial disclosure forms submitted as she was running for office, which identified the names of the sources that provided her income in three of four cases. Tlaib received compensation from the Maurice & Jane Sugar Law Center, Wayne State University, and Metro Solutions, the forms show.
Tlaib was paid $139,873 by Soros’s group in 2016, tax forms show. Between 2016 and 2017, Tlaib received a total of $225,180.
