Twitchy is reporting that Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Michigan, is in a spot of hot water with the House Ethics Committee. She stands accused of taking a salary from her congressional campaign before taking office as a member of Congress.

The Hill notes that Tlaib has denied all wrongdoing. Also, the chairman and ranking member of the House Ethics Committee has hastened to state that just because Tlaib has been referred to the committee does not mean that she is necessarily guilty. The committee has until November 14 to decide whether to open a formal investigation.

Tlaib may have fallen prey to a complicated part of the campaign finance law that states that a nonincumbent candidate for public office may pay himself or herself a salary up until the election or when he or she drops out of the race. Rules exist about the amount of money a candidate may pay himself or herself. The idea is to allow people who are not independently wealthy to be able to run for public office.

The media is not reporting how exactly Tlaib is said to have violated campaign finance rules for payments from a campaign/ The best guess is that she may have accepted money after the 2018 election or that she may have exceeded caps in the amount she could pay herself. If she is found guilty of violating campaign rules, it is uncertain how the House Ethics Committee may punish her.

Tlaib is encountering this latest bit of bother having alienated lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. She is part of an unofficial group of female lawmakers of color known as “the Squad” whose most famous member is Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York. The Squad has been noted for its radical agenda and its often-outrageous behavior and rhetoric. They have become as well known as a thorn in the side of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as they are enemies of the Republicans and, especially, President Donald Trump.

Tlaib, a Palestinian American, is most famous for being involved in a dustup with the government of Israel over an abortive attempt to visit the Jewish State. At first, according to CNN, Tlaib along with fellow squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Michigan was denied entry to Israel because of their support for a campaign of economic warfare against the Jewish State. Tlaib then asked for a special dispensation to visit her relatives on the West Bank, including an ailing grandmother. The Israeli government granted permission for such a visit. Then, in a twist, Tlaib refused the offer, claiming that she would be prevented from attacking Israel from within.

Tlaib, according to the Washington Free Beacon, tends to highlight racially charged incidents that later turned out to be hoaxes. These incidents include the one involving Jussie Smollett, who is accused of staging a racist, homophobic attack on himself, and the one involving the Covington Catholic schoolboys accused of smirking at a Native American activist on the Washington Mall.

The latest incident that Tlaib involved herself in featured a 12-year-old African American girl who accused a group of white boys of holding her down and cutting off her hair. This story turned out to be a fabrication. In none of these instances has Tlaib corrected the record or offered an apology.

Recently, during a hearing on vaping, Tlaib noted that a witness was winking at someone on the committee. She asked the witness whether she was a conspiracy nut. The witness denied the accusation, stating that she was just signaling to an old friend.

The latest kerfuffle caused by Tlaib occurred recently, according to Fox News, when she told the chief of the Detroit Police Department to hire only African American facial recognition analysts on the theory that white people think all black people look alike. The chief, himself an African American, declined the suggestion and noted that no one gets charged solely based on facial recognition analysis.

It is against this backdrop of misbehavior that Tlaib now is potentially in ethical trouble. Most media accounts note that Tlaib and the rest of the Squad have proven to be an irritant to Speaker Pelosi because of their unwillingness to compromise or to behave in the quiet, seen but not heard manner that is expected of freshmen members of Congress. Some have therefore speculated that the House Ethics Committee may not treat her and her ethics problems with any kind of forbearance as a result.

  1. THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN MORE GOVERNMENT JUDICIAL BULLSHIT. WHAT IS THIS SHIT THEY HAVE UNTIL 11/14 WEATHER TO OPEN AN INVESTIGATION? AND NOT KNOWING WHAT THE PUNISHMENT WOULD BE? WHAT KIND OF HORSE SHIT IS THIS? IS THIS WHAT THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER IS PAYING FOR? I SAY EVERYONE OF THESE COCKROACHES IN OUR CONGRESS AND ALL PARTS OF OUR GOVERNMENT AND JUDICIAL SYSTEM BE SQUASHED, EXTERMINATED, ELIMINATED THEN HUNG IN PUBLIC THEN TAKE THE DEAD RUBBISH, THROW THEM IN GITMO AND LET THEM ROT THERE.

  2. Even an alleged hint of Trump’s misdeeds and you damn democrats jump on the impeachment wagon. Yet, the proven misdeeds by your party members are considered as nothing and you await proof. .

  3. Not to mention the Jihad Squad have all proven themselves to be anti-American in the most fundamental ways.. Supporting terrorist or those who fund them, being anti-constitution, anti-Israel/anti-Jew, just to mention a few.

  4. They didn’t do anything about AOC’s campaign abuses so why would anyone thing they will do anything to Tlaib!? If you are a Democrat nothing will happen to you and you can be as corrupt as you want to be. Just look at Maxine Waters.

  5. I find her disgusting and definitely not for the USA, more like China. All four women of color in Congress was done by Obama, to start a revolution. She need to be impeached from Congress, branded as Muslim Brotherhood and jailed. We found out George Soros bought to voting machines and there are 1004 incidents of Democrates knowing how to work those machines to their agenda.

  6. Not only does she have a big mouth, but a big nose as well. And a small brain to think that speaking so angrily will help anyone be on her side when she’s in trouble.

  7. Train is a Terrorist . Instead of flying a plane into a building she is trying to destroy America through Politics and propaganda

  8. They won’t punish her at all. All of the squad has not been accused of campaign finance laws acts. Nothing ever happens to them. They get a slap on the wrist, have to pay the money back and that is the end of it. Because this has become so commonplace our politicians take it very lightly. I think we should have someone other than their peers meting out the punishment, like an elected group of citizens.

  9. investigate sure you would find her guilty get rid of her and her dirty mouthed friends omar and aoc . aoc is a complete nut case . 10 years and we will be dead , when the ice melts there will be a disease in the ice what a war monger that ia trying to destroy our country . these people should not have been allowed in the country

  10. Listen and listen closely I have no use for people who use other people, she has no idea what the hell is going on look at her closely she is making up crap as she goes along… That is why I call her camel face that she is as sick as the rest of the goon squad’s I am very anixous to see what the new year 20/20 elections will be turning out to be!!!

  11. Why has Tlaib NOt been censured for her disgusting reference to President Trump as a M—–F—–. If one of my teenagers had used such language, they would have had hell to pay. Apparently, such filthy language is perfectly acceptable in the United States Congress!

  12. Tlaib is no more than a female AL Sharpton. He had a little black girl accuse white men of raping her, which turn out to be false and he never did any time for the lie. Tlaib isn’t fooling anybody. She is just a stirrer, no more.

  13. When someone takes the effort this person has taken to destroy someone, they are hiding secrets. This woman is out to make our country communistic. This woman is another unethical , unprofessional, evil democrat. She needs to go somewhere else and leave America alone.

  14. No…she is most famous for her ties to Palestine terrorist and embracing C.A.I.R. (front group of C.A.I.R.) also for calling for ALL of America to be converted to Islam and being an Islamist!!!!! It’s her intentions to destroy the Government!!! She is being fairly BLATENT about it!!!

  15. this person has shown nothing but hate and discrimination for this administration and this country. her remarks and actions have been an insult and embarrassment to this country and the people who voted for her. any previous congress would have removed her long before all this rhetoric happened.
