It’s no secret the Democrat establishment is pushing for Joe Biden to run for re-election. More and more voters are turning on old Joe. But hardliners, that have been in the D.C. swamp for years, are all but forcing the party to side with crooked Biden.
That includes a major player in South Carolina–a state that helped secure Biden’s nomination in 2020. This Democrat has been pushing to get the party behind Biden, despite Joe’s many failures from his first term in office. But his ally might lose some steam, after this news came out. How are they going to explain all this?
From Just the News:
South Carolina Democrat Rep. James Clyburn paid his grandson more than $86,000 in “campaign management” fees and over $50,000 in rent to a company run by his son-in-law during the 2022 midterms, according to federal election filings.
Wow. According to new filings, Rep. James Clyburn used campaign cash to enrich his grandson and son-in-law. For over a year, he paid his grandson over $86,000 in “campaign management” fees. What are those? What job was his grandson providing that required that kind of payday?
Even more troubling was the amount of rent he was paying his son-in-law. Clyburn’s campaign paid $57,500 in rent. The money went to a company that is being run by his son-in-law.
This is nothing new. Many congressional Democrats “hire” their family during campaigns. They pay them absurd amounts of money for seemingly basic services. This isn’t illegal, but more than a little fishy. Some Democrats paid their spouses tens of thousands of dollars for “web services.”
Others are even vaguer. They paid family members thousands of dollars for “consulting services.” Of course, they fail to explain exactly why their family members’ fees are much higher than most companies.
News like this doesn’t play well with voters. Most Americans don’t like the idea that a politician’s family gets rich off of donations. And this is one of Biden’s biggest allies. Biden himself is in hot water over how his family’s gotten rich because of him. Now, one of the Democrats colluding to protect Joe’s 2024 nomination just got outed.
How this will affect Joe’s plans… we’ll have to wait and see.
- Joe Biden ally Rep. James Clyburn paid tens of thousands of dollars in campaign cash to family members.
- He paid his grandson and son-in-law large sums for “services” and “rent” during the 2022 Elections.
- This is a common practice by congressional Democrats, but is looked down on by voters.
