Another Democrat Caught Spending Taxpayer Dollars on Family

It sure feels like we are forced to write a new story about corrupt Democrats every few months. Over the last year we’ve brought you the corruption saga’s of Maxine Waters, Alcee Hastings, Corrine Brown, and Chakah Fatah (among others). All four Democrats have been accused of corruption and in all four cases it’s been proved that some impropriety has taken place.

Chakah Fatah (D-PA) is sitting in a prison in Pennsylvania.

Corrine Brown (D-FL) was recently found guilty on 18 different criminal counts.

Alcee Hastings (D-FL) was recently unmasked having wasted some $2.5 MILLION in  taxpayer money on his longtime girlfriend. An ethics committee is now looking into the charges against him.

Maxine Waters (D-CA) is now embroiled in the second major ethics scandal of her career. This time an investigation has discovered that she has paid her own daughter hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars over the last few years.

The latest Democrat scandal seems tame compared to the crimes of these four corrupt liberals, but it’s still going to pose major problems for Democrat Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO).

An investigation into his office’s spending patterns found that Rep. Clay gave $30,000 to his sister’s law firm in just the first quarter of 2017. Those expenditures actually accounted for roughly 60% of his team’s spending over the first 3 months of the year and the spending pattern raises some serious questions about his use of taxpayer dollars.

Clay’s campaign committee, Clay Jr. for Congress, spent over $47,000 in the first quarter of 2017, which runs from Jan. 1 to March 31. A bulk of the money disbursed by his campaign went to the Law Office of Michelle C. Clay, LLC, a Silver Spring, Md.-based firm that is owned by his sister.

Michelle Clay has been paid $27,000 this year so far, accounting for 56 percent of all his campaign expenditures during the 2018 cycle so far.

But it gets worse. It seems that Clay’s sister and her law firm have done very well since Rep. Clay was first elected back in 2002.

The St. Louis Democrat made $150,000 in payments to the firm throughout the 2016 election cycle, the Washington Free Beacon previously reported. Michelle Clay’s firm has pocketed more than $800,000 since 2002, the year it first appeared on Rep. Clay’s campaign payroll.

While politicians need lawyers on the payroll, it seems odd that 60% of their office expenditures should be spent on legal help. The family connection makes the entire story even more compelling and you can bet that an ethics investigation will soon follow these latest revelations.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
