    The House Ethics Committee released a report from OCE (Office of Congressional Ethics) saying there’s a “substantial reason to believe” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) misused campaign funds. The report (embedded below) focuses on payments Tlaib’s campaign made to the Michigan Democrat after the Nov. 6, 2018 election but before she took office, and that is illegal based on campaign finance rules. Based on that report, the ethics committee announced they would be expanding the investigation. OCE Rashida Tlaib

    WOW! There really is an Office of Congressional Ethics? Who’d have thought it? They must be extremely busy.

    Included in the report were Tlaib emails to her campaign committee begging to use the campaign money.

    In one April 2018 email offered as an exhibit by OCE, Tlaib wrote that she was “struggling financially right now” and was “sinking.” She continued: “So I was thinking the campaign could loan me money, but Ryan said that the committee could actually pay me. I was thinking a one time payment of $5k.”

    In another email, on April 4, 2018, Tlaib wrote: “I am just not going to make it through the campaign without a stipend.”
