California Congresswoman Linda Sanchez planned on being head of the House Democrat Caucus.
That is no longer a reality.
Sanchez has dropped her bid for the post after her husband was indicted on criminal charges.
The alleged crime?
Stealing federal funds.
From Free Beacon:
Democratic representative Linda Sanchez (Calif.) has pulled out of the race to head the House Democratic Caucus after her husband was indicted on federal criminal charges.
Sanchez’s husband, James Sullivan, allegedly misused federal funds for the likes of expensing trips to the Kentucky Derby and to Key West, Fla., Politico reports.
“Earlier today, I learned that my husband is facing charges in Connecticut,” Sanchez said yesterday. “After careful consideration of the time and energy being in leadership demands, I have decided that my focus now needs to be on my son, my family, and my constituents in California.”
Sanchez’s husband was one of five individuals with ties to a Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Corporation that steered more than $800,000 in funds to personal trips without the board voting or approval from member towns, which is required.
Speaking of Democrat corruption, New Jersey Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was re-elected Monday night to another six-year term despite a plethora of negative issues.
What’s crazy is that a juror from Bob’s trial attended his victory party.
A little weird?
From Daily Wire:
North Jersey Record reporter Scott Fallon reported that Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, of Hillside, New Jersey, attended Menendez’s victory party in a Hoboken hotel.
Among the supporters tonight @SenatorMenendez’s HQ is Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby, a juror on his federal corruption trial. She achieved some fame when she left the jury last year during deliberations to go on vacation. She would’ve voted for acquittal. @northjersey pic.twitter.com/mVNSJdwGtK

***MORE DEMOCRAT CORRUPTION***
Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, seeking to become the next governor of Florida (still, after conceding to Republican Ron DeSantis on election night), said he did not accept a ticket to the Broadway show “Hamilton.”
Gillum actually accepted the gift from an undercover FBI agent.
From Daily Wire:
Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum was caught lying about accepting a ticket to the Broadway show Hamilton on Tuesday after records were released that showed that undercover FBI agents were the ones who gave him the ticket.
