House Ethics Committee orders Rashida Tlaib to repay $10,800 to campaign

House Ethics Committee, after reviewing more than 600 pages of documents and interviewed five witnesses to determine the nature of the payments that occurred between Nov. 16  and Dec. 1, 2018, has concluded that Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself after she was elected to Congress in 2018.

“The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” reads a statement from the House Ethics Committee on Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.”

“However, because she received some of those funds, totaling $10,800, for time periods in which she was no longer a congressional candidate, those funds were inconsistent with [the campaign law’s] personal use restrictions,” the committee continued.

United States Sees Highest Murder Rate in 25 Years

Crime has been spiking at an aberrant rate, hitting the highest murder rate in 25 years. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis are among the large liberal cities shattering records for 2021 murder reports.

Data analyst Jeff Asher examined FBI data, reported by the New York Times, which shows the 2021 murder rate was estimated to be 6.9 murders per 100,000 people. That is a mere .5 percent lower than the 1997 murder rate of 7.4

Rising crime rates have prompted policy makers to focus on the increasing mental health and homeless crises sweeping the nation. Some say that is not helpful for a full and comprehensive approach.

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Howard Safir said there is more to be looked at such as “cancel culture and wok mentality that assumes the police are racist and brutal.”

Not only that, liberal policy makers have been incredibly soft on crime, as well as unsupportive of law enforcement. “If crimes continue to be committed in large numbers, and police continue not to have the backing of politicians and the public, then they’re not going to do their job the way they did when I was commissioner” Safir told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.

The murder of 24-year-old Brianna Kupfer in broad daylight as she worked at a luxury furniture store in Los Angeles last week points to a huge failure in our justice system. The young UCLA student was knifed to death by a homeless man, Shawn Laval Smith, who not only has a lengthy rap sheet from across the country, but “was currently free on a $1,000 bond from a misdemeanor arrest in Los Angeles County in October, 2020, sheriff’s records show” reports the Daily mail.

Smith has also been arrested and charged with violent crimes in at least three states. He was also free on a $50,000 bond from Charleston, South Carolina, after allegedly firing a weapon toward an occupied vehicle in 2019.

Murders in Los Angeles last year reached 397, the highest it’s been in 15 years. The NYPD reported its highest number of murders in ten years, with 488.
