Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) did not disclose the name of the source of funds for a fellowship that was paid by liberal billionaire George Sorosas required by the House ethics committeeand also disclosed a lesser amount than she received, according to a review of tax and financial disclosure forms.
The Washington Free Beacon obtained the most recent copies of tax forms for a number of Soros's organizations, including the Open Society Institute, the legal name for the Open Society Foundations, the entity in which Soros pushes millions in funding to a number of liberal causes and organizations.
An expenditure of $85,307 to Rashida Tlaib in Detroit, Mich., from 2017 is shown on page 97 of the 321-page report to "to increase involvement of disenfranchised urban communities of color with their local governance process by creating a community benefits strategy for equitable development and creating a leadership training for impacted residents focused on negotiation skills and identifying leverage at the local level."
Tlaib did not report any income in the amount of $85,307 on financial disclosure forms submitted as she was running for office, which identified the names of the sources that provided her income in three of four cases. Tlaib received compensation from the Maurice & Jane Sugar Law Center, Wayne State University, and Metro Solutions, the forms show.
However, the fourth reported source of earned income is marked as a "Leadership in Government Fellowship," but does not identify who provided the payment.
A press release from 2016 shows that Tlaib was chosen for a "leadership in government" fellowship by Soros's Open Society Foundations along with seven other individuals.
Okay - blatant crime committed, what/when will be the recompense?
Pure Taqiya or taqiyya.
Get used to it....
Belongs in jail...not Congress.
Soros and it could be cellmates.
Why was Wayne State - presumably a public institution - giving money to a candidate?
Soroz is working overtime to destroy this country.
He will also be working hard to destroy all the European countries that are rejecting the UN’s (global government) unlimited migration plans.
So, since they want to go after the President for the same thing, or less even, will they charge her? Isn’t she the one that, after espousing all things American, was celebrating with a Palestinian flag or something like that?
That is a felony and jail time.
IT is a mohammed, of course, IT will lie!!
I am amazed this piece o’ crud is still walking around.
amazing how all these no-names end up with cushy incomes
but the real question is, did she declare it on her taxes?
