Democrats and violating rules seem to be two things that go hand-in-hand.
Charlie Rangel had his run-ins with ethics violations (13 in all), including when he failed to pay taxes on rental properties in the Dominican Republic. There was also Maxine “Murky” Waters who ran into trouble for supplying aid to her husband’s bank in securing a federal bail-out. But the list of liberals and their lying ways does not end there.
Two individuals who are under investigation by the House Ethics Committee may be news to you. Both Representatives Ray Lujan (D-NM) and John Conyers (D-MI) are now embroiled in controversies for using House floor photos to obtain donations, and dropping $16,500 into a top aide’s bank account, respectively.
Right Wing News:
Rep. Ben Ray Lujan from New Mexico and Rep. John Conyers from Michigan are both being accused of unethical actions. Lujan is being investigated for his role in the House sit-in last year, and it is believed that he used photos of the protest in campaign donation solicitations. Using an image of a member on the House floor to raise money for a political campaign is illegal.
As for Conyers, he’s being investigated due to Cynthia Martin, who previously served as one of his top aides. $16,500 was “mistakenly” placed into her bank account, and she refused to return it. Martin plead guilty to a misdemeanor, but the Committee is still reviewing her departure from Conyers’ office.
“From April to August 2016, Cynthia Martin received compensation from the House of Representatives at a time when she may no longer have been working for the House,” the complaint read. “If Ms. Martin accepted compensation that was not commensurate with the work she was performing, then she may have violated House rules and standards of conduct.”
It seems abundantly clear that these swamp dwellers just can’t seem to clean the scum from their bodies as they emerge from the Swamp in Washington.
Let us hope that these investigations are reviewed properly and that if these two swampers are guilty of violating House rules, that they will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the rules provided.
