Democrats have been systematically falsifying expense records to skirt audits
LINK

quote:

House Democrats ordered the systematic falsification of records showing how they spend their taxpayer-provided office budgets, according to lawyers for two former House information technology (IT) aides.


quote:

One of Imran’s lawyers, Aaron Page, acknowledged the invoicing discrepancy Aug. 21, telling The Daily Caller News Foundation, “This is just how things have been done for forever. This is what experienced members of Congress expect: to expedite things, they adjust the pricing.


quote:

 members or senior staff instructed IT aides to misrepresent how budgets were spent, that could potentially explain why officials have not charged the Awans with crimes related to procurement, even a full year after House authorities gathered documentation showing invoices that claimed expensive technological items cost $499 instead of their true price: potentially an open-and-shut violation.


quote:

The only reason you’re not seeing charges is because the Democrats who employed him are not cooperating,” a senior Republican congressional official with direct knowledge of the probe told TheDCNF last month.

He was initially surprised by seeming recalcitrant to enforce House rules, the official said, and eventually saw it as supporting the idea that members might fear that an investigation into rogue staffers could ultimately implicate members or senior staffers in procurement misconduct





Do Democrats lie, cheat, and steal ALL the damn time?

You mean they are not paying their fair share?

Possibly, but we have actual you know EVIDENCE here of DEms doing it, any evidence of Republicans doing so?

"It’s a remarkable accusation that pits sitting lawmakers against the former aides, Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, and his wife Hina Alvi. Imran was arrested in July while trying to board a flight to Pakistan, and then indicted on four counts of bank fraud involving moving money to that country. Imran and Hina, who was also indicted, face a court date Friday."

While you are out on that limb, tell me about any Republicans that were running an operation like the above. This isn't simple accounting "liberties" it is an allegation of major fraud.

My question is “What other kinds of scandals does Awan have proof of?”

The lengths to which DWS went to keep him employed implies that he knows far more than he should, possibly up to and including her actions as head of the DNC.

Evidence. Awan has produced some on the Dem side, no one has done so on the Republican side.

No Brah, I'm claiming you are too stupid to grasp the significance of these Democrat consultants fleeing the country and the involvement of certain D Congresspeople involved in serious fraud if not worse.

So they are going to cut a deal with Awan to rat out Dims on fudging budget numbers.

Which means nothing is going to happen to anyone because this will be some partisan crap show.

Wrong again......I know EXACTLY who's running our country and the significance of their actions. You're 2 posts in this thread talk about Dems & Reps like they're 2 separate entities; they aren't.

I don't think that is true in this particular case otherwise the whole thing would be covered up.

But I take your point that elected officials regardless of party get a little too "comfortable" in office.

Surely you don't think this is simply about missing monitors and lap top do you?

Not very subtle in your cries for attention. Just saying.
