McConnell and his wife shamed for stealing taxpayer money for Kentucky friends

Shaub

Former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub tore into Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his wife Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao on Monday for colluding to steal taxpayer money for their friends in Kentucky.

Earlier this month, a watchdog group demanded an investigation into McConnell and Chao for unfairly orchestrating the award of government grants for projects overseen by their pals back in Kentucky.

Now, Politico is reporting on the vast extent of the corrupt scheme.

It’s yet another example of favoritism and nepotism run amok in our government since President Donald Trump took office. The top officer in the Senate is literally conspiring with his wife to use her position of power to steer millions of dollars in taxpayer money to their Kentucky friends, thus robbing more deserving projects in that state and others across the nation of funding.

In response to this obvious ethics violation, Shaub pointed out that this scheme is an impeachable offense and that it proves America is a banana republic.

Challenged by a Trump supporter who used the 2018 Election as an example arguing that the United States is not a banana republic, Shaub fired back with devastating effect.

McConnell and his wife are clearly violating government ethics to enrich themselves and their friends with approval by Trump. This cannot be tolerated in our democracy and the American people should demand the immediate return of this money and McConnell’s and Chao’s resignations. This is a scandal that would have rocked the nation to its core in any other time.
