Remember the Democrat congressman who hung the anti-cop pig painting in US Capitol?
Well now this poor excuse for a Congressman, Lacy Clay Jr., has found a way to pay his sister almost $200,000 from his 2018 campaign money:
FREE BEACON – A Democratic representative disbursed nearly $200,000 from his campaign funds to a law firm that is owned by his sister throughout the 2018 election cycle, according to a review of Federal Election Commission filings.
Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr. (D., Mo.) made the payments from his campaign committee, Clay Jr. for Congress, to the Law Office of Michelle C. Clay, LLC, a law firm owned by his sister, Michelle, that does not have a website and whose address appears to be a residential home in Silver Spring, Md., just outside of Washington, D.C.
The first payment to the firm this past cycle was in the amount of $9,000 and was made on Jan. 4, 2017, for professional services fees including fundraising and compliance. In addition to the fundraising and compliance services, the payments to Michelle Clay’s firm were marked for community organizing, legal counsel, and record keeping.
From Jan. 4 until Oct. 31, 2018, Rep. Clay Jr. disbursed numerous payments ranging from $500 to $10,000 and totaling $198,500 to his sister’s firm, the filings show.
Clay Jr.’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the payments to the firm by press time.
No, this doesn’t smell fishy at all. I’m sure his sister and her ‘law firm’ are legit as can be and she earned every bit of that $200k she got from his campaign money. The fact that she doesn’t have a website or a business office….I’m sure it’s all on the up and up. Uh huh.
Last year Clay did the same thing, paying his sister over $150k in the 2017 election cycle.
