A top New York Democrat is suffering a backlash after having spent $29,000 on travel expenses even as he was loudly telling New Yorkers to stay home to “stop the spread” of the coronavirus.

According to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee records, Democrat Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who leads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, spent the cash on “ground transportation” and “automobile expenses” in the last nine months of 2020, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

The exorbitant spending included “nearly $20,000 in lease and insurance payments, more than $3,600 in collision repairs, nearly $2,200 in gas, more than $2,100 in rental car fees, and nearly $500 for a satellite radio subscription,” the Free Beacon added.

However, Maloney also halted personal campaign events with his voters in New York. Meanwhile he was loudly telling voters back home to accept the lockdowns to stem the tide of the coronavirus.

“Stay at home. Don’t go out if you don’t need to, minimize your contact with other people,” Maloney said in a radio interview. “If a member of your family is sick, the whole family’s got to stay home so we don’t go spread it.”

Now, some ethics experts are slamming Maloney.

Kendra Arnold, executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, told the Beacon that Maloney’s expenditures raised “red flags” and that he “has a duty to explain” the expenditures.

“Candidates don’t have to link [disbursements] to a specific corresponding event,” Arnold added. “We generally look for spending that isn’t in the realm of a candidate in the same state or in a similar-sized district.”

Biden to Tackle Gun Violence with Summer Camps and Jobs

This is all just another plug for the American Rescue Plan.

Published

on

During the presidency of Donald Trump, many of his supporters were sure that the Commander in Chief was fighting a barely-secret war against a “deep state” of establishment politicians whose goal was to keep the status quo chugging along at all costs, enriching themselves in the process. And, given that Trump had to work in the shadows to accomplish this, many began using the term “4D chess” to describe his fight. Any time that The Don made a move that seemed a bit out of character, many believed that this was a subterranean attempt at stealing power from the deep state that only Trump could quite understand. Now, in a far more bizarre set of moves, it appears as thought the Biden administration is trying to play something like 7 or 8D chess when they are only truly qualified to handle tic-tac-toe. First, they insist that “climate change” is a “root cause” of illegal immigration, which is a dumbfounding declaration in and of its own right. Now they are aiming to tackle gun violence with summer camp. President Joe Biden on Wednesday will lay out his plan for addressing the surge in gun violence that has impacted cities around the country in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The president’s strategy will address five key areas: stemming the flow of firearms used to commit violence; providing law enforcement with more resources; investing in community violence interventions; expanding summer programs and employment opportunities, especially for young people; and helping formerly incarcerated people re-enter their communities. As part of Biden’s plan, the Treasury Department will issue new guidelines Wednesday making clear that communities experiencing a surge in gun violence as a result of the pandemic can use the $350 billion in state and local funding included in the American Rescue Plan to…

ABOUT TIME: Kamala Harris Makes Much-Anticipated Travel Plans

It only took three months!

It has taken three months, but our Vice President is finally about to tackle the border crisis head on. Sure, Kamala Harris has visited Guatemala, but, ask anyone involved in that debacle and you’re unlikely to find a glowing review of her diplomacy there.  In fact, after Harris left, the President of that nation told the world that the whole immigration crisis is Joe Biden’s fault anyway. Now, after incessant criticism from the mainstream media, Harris will finally be heading to the border. Vice President Kamala Harris is set to visit the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday, the White House confirmed, amid mounting criticism from Republicans for not yet doing so, following her appointment by President Biden to handle the “root causes” of migration. Harris is set to visit El Paso, Texas, with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Harris has come under heavy criticism from Republicans and some Democrats for the way she has handled the role since being appointed to it 91 days ago. While the White House has emphasized she is tasked with the “root causes” of the border crisis, Republicans have criticized her repeatedly for not having visited the border at all – with former Trump officials saying she needs to go to the border in order to be able to conduct the talks effectively. Harris has thus far opted to work on the “root causes” of illegal immigration, stating that she believes “climate change” to be a major factor; a proclamation that has enthused the radical leftists of the Democratic Party.
