The husband of a California Democrat has been indicted!!
From the Hill:
The husband of Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) was indicted by federal authorities on Thursday on charges related to the theft of public funds.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Connecticut announced that a grand jury returned two indictments against five people for misusing taxpayer funds in connection with the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Corporation (CMEEC), an electric utilities co-op. One of those charged is James Sullivan, Sanchez’s husband.
Hours earlier, Sanchez, the vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, had withdrawn her bid to replace outgoing Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) as chairman of the caucus next year. She cited “an unexpected family matter.”
Later in the day she issued a clarifying statement.
”Earlier today I learned that my husband is facing charges in Connecticut,” she said. “After careful consideration of the time and energy being in leadership demands, I have decided that my focus now needs to be on my son, my family, and my constituents in California.”
Again, you can bet this would be huge news everywhere and they’d be blaming Trump if she were a Republican. But she’s a Dem, so this is the last you’ll hear about it…
