Rashida Tlaib Got Near Quarter Million From George Soros And Then It Got Worse

Michigan Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who has made a mark quickly, had one some shady stuff in her journey to get to where she is.

Like many in the Democrat Party, her journey started when she worked for George Soros, the billionaire Democrat donor.

Kendra Arnold, the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a government watchdog group, said that the payment was “problematic” given that candidates are required to disclose the source of their income.

“Identify the source by naming the organization, corporation, or other entity making the payment. It is not necessary that individual clients of a business be named, only the business itself,” the manual states. Tlaib did not report that it came from Soros’s Open Society Foundation.
