PHOTOS: Cindy Hyde-Smith Bought A Car With Her Campaign Money

Published

on

Mississippi interim senator Cindy Hyde-Smith reportedly purchased a car for herself with her campaign money.

In 2014, Hyde-Smith’s re-election campaign for state Agriculture Commissioner paid more than $24,000 for a Dodge Charger, which Hyde-Smith uses to commute to work at the State Capitol according to photographs. Though not illegal in Mississippi, the former Democrat’s use of campaign dollars for a personal car raises more ethical questions in the wake of our reporting on Umesh Sanjanwala, her heavy donor and state director whose daughter served as a consultant for Hillary Clinton.

Jackson Jambalaya printed photos of Hyde-Smith’s car parked at the state Agriculture office:

Hyde-Smith is coming under scrutiny for her business relationship with Umesh Sanjanwala, the father of a Hillary Clinton consultant. Records reveal that Hyde-Smith and Sanjanwala owned a failed business and a domain name Journey2Heaven.com, which previously hosted occult-themed services for communicating with the dead.

Sanjanwala is a major donor to Hyde-Smith’s political career, having worked under her during Hyde-Smith’s stint as Mississippi agriculture commissioner. Hyde-Smith’s link to Sanjanwala is reminiscent of former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s employment of IT aide Imran Awan. Hyde-Smith is trying to defend the seat she was appointed to against insurgent conservative state senator Chris McDaniel.

Umesh Sanjawala is Cindy Hyde-Smith’s Mississippi state director in her Senate office. He reportedly met Hyde-Smith in 2010.

Umesh Sanjanwala was a major donor to Hyde-Smith’s past campaign for state agriculture commissioner, according to records. He also served as official spokesman for her campaign.

Sanjanwala donated more than $57,000 to Hyde-Smith’s agriculture commissioner campaign over a period of six months.

As of 2014, one of Hyde-Smith and Sanjanwala’s projects was Journey2Heaven.com, for which Hyde-Smith was officially listed as a manager of the company.

The company never got off the ground with Hyde-Smith and Sanjanwala at the helm. Hyde-Smith tested her “online ministry” out at a Baptist church in 2017, which she hoped could serve as a “pilot” church for her company. The website never went live with Hyde-Smith’s visions.

Interestingly, the domain Journey2Heaven.com was previously occupied by a company specializing in communicating with the dead through occult rituals, and promoted an event by hypnotherapist “Reverend” Liz Bright Leon. Hyde-Smith’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment for this report.

SHAME: Democrats Are Blocking Stimulus Legislation That Includes Second $1,200 TrumpBux Check

Published

on

Democrats in Congress are blocking a bipartisan $1.5 trillion stimulus package that includes a second round of $1,200 TrumpBux payments to Americans.

Leading House Democrats are saying the bill isn’t big enough of a giveaway, but they favor stimulus measures that would divert funds away from the pockets of everyday Americans to institutions. They want to bail out Democrat state and local governments, and are willing to block TrumpBux payments to Americans if they aren’t allowed to.

The House passed a $3.4 trillion stimulus package in May that was shot down by Senate Republicans. The latest $1.4 stimulus legislation has been presented as a compromise, after House Democrats in turn rejected a thin $500 billion stimulus package proposed by Republicans last week. That package did not include a second round of $1,200 payments, and Republicans are now willing to sign off on another TrumpBux payment in order to pass another round of stimulus.

The $1.5 trillion stimulus legislation emerged from the Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of 25 Republicans and 25 Democrats who emphasize bipartisanship and common ground. Aside from TrumpBux 2, it features $500 billion for cities and states, unemployment insurance of $600 a week, increased SNAP benefits and rental assistance.

Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi are claiming the legislation doesn’t go far enough and that it “leaves too many needs unmet.”

Pelosi and House Democrats are insisting that Congress will remain in session until a second stimulus agreement is met, but in rejecting the Problem Solvers Caucus legislation they’re already shown they’re not open to a generous compromise.

Try asking everyday working Americans of all stripes and walks of life if they’re willing to wait or even go without a second $1,200 stimulus payment in order to provide a bigger bailout to states and cities that already engage in questionable budgetary practices to begin with. The Democrats are resolutely determined to avoid making people the priority in  a stimulus package, and will block stimulus legislation to do so.
