A leftist Democrat Representative was just busted with serious questions about shady financial dealings.
According to Breitbart News, “Rep. Ted Lieu is facing questions about alleged donations to Stanford University from his campaign fund that were apparently made before his son entered school at the prestigious college.”
Per The Washington Post:
Congressman Ted Lieu has a son enrolled at Stanford, according to his social media profile. Lieu’s congressional campaign from early 2016 to mid-2018 donated $50,146 to Stanford University — $50,000 of that in two donations over nine months through the beginning of 2018.
Now, it appears one of Lieu’s sons is enrolled at Stanford, entering as a freshman this month — or at least that’s what his son’s social media account says.
As explained by the FEC, “Campaign committees can give gifts to charity. The amount donated to a charitable organization cannot be used for purposes that personally benefit the candidate.”
When one Twitter account tweeted about this today, alleging impropriety, the account was suspended shortly after.
The appearance of a potential conflict of interest has eyes looking at Lieu. Time will tell the truth.
