According to the Washington Free Beacon, Rashida Tlaib’s campaign committee for Congress received a contribution from a man named George S. Farah, a Michigan real estate developer who moved to the US from Palestine in the mid-’50s. Even more interesting, according to Michigan Live, Mr. Farah died in 2009 of heart failure!
The Free Beacon reported:
On June 22, Tlaib’s campaign received a $2,500 donation in his name, Federal Election Commission filings show. A search of public records, which also state that he is deceased, provides an address identical to the one written on the contribution to Tlaib’s campaign committee. Grand Blanc Township property records also show that the residence located at that address is registered in Farah’s name along with that of his widow.
Tlaib is the sole federal politician to receive a donation in Farah’s name for the 2020 election cycle. In the past, Rep. Dan Kildee (D., Mich.) has also received contributions from Farah following his passing. Kildee, who first ran for the House of Representatives during the 2012 election cycle, was given $1,400 in total contributions in Farah’s name between 2011 and 2017. The two Democratic Michigan representatives are the only federal politicians who received money in Farah’s name for the past 10 years.
Tlaib’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment. A spokesman for Rep. Kildee’s campaign, however, did.
“Gisele Farah is the sole beneficiary of a trust in her late husband’s name, George S. Farah Sr., who passed away in 2009,” the spokesman said. “Since his death, Gisele Farah, as the sole beneficiary in control of the trust, has contributed to the campaign with funds from her trust. Our campaign’s records have been amended to clarify that the campaign contributions were from Gisele Farah and should be designated under her name.”
Therefore, according to federal campaign laws, it is against the law to make campaign contributions in another person’s name, as is it illegal for a deceased individual to donate to a political campaign, for obvious reasons!
Ultimately, it is time to open up investigations into members of the squad, as Tlaib has not only made anti-American statements, as well as, the appearance of election violations! Also, new revelations of campaign contribution violations and immigration fraud have been exposed and leveled against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
In the end, as the Democrats continue to push a narrative of corruption against President Trump, apparently they should be focusing on their own corruption and scandals, of which their Party and their Mainstream Media propaganda machine seem to be unwilling to report. Sadly, in most cases, they work to sweep it under the rug, for their own political and Socialist ends!
