NEW: DOJ Investigating House Democrat for Misuse of Government Funds

A bit of breaking news arrived on Monday with the revelation that the Department of Justice is actively investigating a House Democrat for misusing government funds. According to Punchbowl News, a publication that specializes in insider reporting regarding Capitol Hill, the Democrat in question used government funds meant for personal security for presumably illegal purposes. 


The details are sparse as of this writing, with a more fleshed-out report supposedly coming later in the evening. There’s some information already out there, though, to bolster speculation. One would have to lean heavily towards this involving one of the members of the “squad,” right? 

Recall that Rep. Cori Bush, a radical left-winger and racist, was accused of funneling campaign money to her now-husband to provide “security services.” One of the issues was that the man in question had no legal ability to operate in that role, not being licensed in Missouri, making the distribution of money highly suspicious. 

During the 2022 election alone, Bush spent over $500,000 in campaign cash for “security,” a number that dwarfed the spending of her allies such as Rep. Ilhan Omar. While we don’t know for sure, it’s certainly a good working theory that this latest news involves Bush and the use of government funds to pay off her husband (or someone else she’s involved with), thereby funneling the money back to herself. The Missouri congresswoman was also the recipient of an ethics complaint for misuse of government funds in August of 2023, though that had to do with something unrelated to security costs.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that the targeted Democrat in this case isn’t Bush or even a member of the “squad.” There are plenty of other corrupt left-wingers serving in the House. You could pick any Democrat representative’s name out of a hat, tell me they are guilty, and I’d probably come to the conclusion that it makes sense. 

This is a developing story. RedState will provide updates as they come. Hopefully, the more fleshed-out report that is promised to come will provide more details as to who exactly is involved.
