McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao.. Former Sec of Transportation in trouble
Remember when Elaine Chao, Trump’s former DOT secretary resigned in disgust to the Jan 6 riots:

quote:

“Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed,” Chao wrote in an email to staff members at 1:32 p.m. Thursday. “As I’m sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.”


She no doubt thought that surely the new leftists in charge would be thankful for her defection. Her defection would no doubt curry favor, right?

Eeeeeehhhhh. No. It was not to be.

NPR

quote:

In her time as former President Donald Trump's transportation secretary, Elaine Chao repeatedly used her position and agency staff to help family members who run a shipping business with ties to China, in potential violation of federal ethics laws, according to an Office of Inspector General report.


Couldn’t happen to a nicer traitor.

SlipperyJoe could teach her some moves on helping family while he was in position of Vice President.

Didn't Peter Schweitzer write about exactly this in his book? It should be no surprise. Senators and Cabinet secretaries don't make outrageous money. They have to supplement income some way right?

Nothing will happen to her.

She is a made member of the American political elite class.

Rules do not apply to them as they do to you and I.

And her resignation was 100% a calculated virtue signal to protect her and her family’s past, current, and future interests in fleecing America to their benefit at the expense of Americans.

I never would have guessed she had ties to China...

Never, not at all.

Levin was talking about this few months back. I won’t complain if they “investigate” her.

Isn’t it her family that had the freighter that had all the cocaine on it, which ended up inspiring the Cocaine Mitch moniker?

is not sleeping with a CHY NESE spy not a federal ethics violation? Flying your son on AF2 to collect money from many different countries while VP, not a violation of federal ethics? Reading a phone call transcript that was knowingly fabricated to the House of Reps as if it was true, not a violation of federal ethics, only to say it was "satire" hours after the fact, and never correcting the record in Congress?
Is not spying on a campaign using false info, a federal ethics violation?
There are so many worse ethics violations in Congress, and many other federal agencies alone why would she think what she was doing was a problem?
She seriously violated ethics, but what others have done is way worse. All of them should face consequences for what they have done.

I find it hilarious this board suddenly caring about this. These allegations have been rumored for years and posted about on this board and nobody gave a damn about it back then.

That the same gay marriage that Hillary & Obama both vowed they were against?

Seems Chao’s big crime here is cutting in on the business of the Democrats

re: McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao.. Former Sec of Transportation in trouble
Washington D.C. is just one big simmering cauldron of corruption. Just one big huge slush fund for corrupt politicians and lobbyists to exploit. I go back to FDR and I will say, without question, I've never witnessed the level of corruption in Washington, D.C. that I see today.

I thought Lyndon Johnson's Great Society was a bottomless pit of corruption and waste. Hey these democrats today could teach Lyndon Johnson a few things about running a slush fund for corrupt politicians.

This government is leaking money like a busted main water line in New York City. Unfortunately we just keep sending these crooks back to Congress.
