Full title: Ethics Committee releases messages showing Tlaib asking campaign for personal money, as ethics probes announced
The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib , in which Tlaib urgently requests money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses.
The document dump was related to the committee's ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be "expanded" based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Additionally, the Ethics Committee acknowledged for the first time on Thursday an investigation into Florida Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings concerning a "personal relationship with an individual employed in his congressional office."
Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.
In one April 2018 email offered as an exhibit by OCE, Tlaib wrote that she was "struggling financially right now" and was "sinking." She continued: "So I was thinking the campaign could loan me money, but Ryan said that the committee could actually pay me. I was thinking a one time payment of $5k."
In another email, on April 4, 2018, Tlaib wrote: "I am just not going to make it through the campaign without a stipend."
"With the loss of a second income to lean back on," she wrote. "I am requesting $2,000 per two weeks but not exceeding $12,000. The cost of living stipend is going towards much needed expenses due to campaigning that includes car maintenance, child care and other necessities. Please let me know if I can proceed."

But isn’t she innocent based on sharia law and the fact that she probably didn’t intend to do anything wrong . . . oh, and she is a democrat?
A couple questions. Did she receive the money? Did she pay it back? And who is this mysterious Ryan?
Rashida challenged Nancy’s power.
That’s the stuff of long knives.
No reasonable prosecutor............
Throw the MF’er out!
I agree, both of them.
Let me guess, her Plastic Surgeon promised her he could make her look presentable for only $12,000.
I guess Chelsea Clinton gave her the referral.
She’s employing the Hillary defense. “I didn’t intend to break the law”
Nothing. Will. Happen.
Lets Wrap This FReepathon Up Early, Folks Donate Today!
One big help to us would be an all out Dem infighting schism with the old guard versus the Squad wing. Each refusing to help the other.
And if Rashida needed money so badly why didn't get a job? AOC tended bar and stole tips.
Rashida could have transported and cleaned portable toilets at large outdoor events. With training.
Gee..ya mean..a QUID PRO QUO..but hey she’s a Muslim Jihadist Jew hater so its all good
The congress terrorist is paid 175k a year and can’t make ends meet? Boo hoo.
Read the article.
How stupid can she be? She should have done the AOC money shuffle. Just pay your boyfriend a hundred grand from the campaign and get it from him. That scheme seems to be OK. Theres lots of laundered Soros money floating around too. Sure, shes anti American enough to be a democrat but does she have the prerequisite democrat ability to lie and cheat well enough?
Having sex with your brother can be expensive these days...
