#NeverTrump Candidate for U.S. Congress Pays Himself out of Campaign Funds

Published

on

A Republican candidate for U.S. Congress with a sordid history of supporting President Donald J. Trump has been paying himself a salary out of his campaign funds, FEC records show.

A County Commissioner in El Paso County, CO, Darryl Glenn, who disavowed his support for President Trump during the 2016 election cycle during which Glenn was running for U.S. Senate, paid himself four installments of $22,418 from April to June, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette. 

“We’re entitled to it,” Glenn said. “It’s all by the book and legit.”

The FEC allows candidates for House, Senate, or president to pay themselves a salary as long as candidates do not pay themselves more than the salary made at their previous job. The rule, made in 2002, is meant to make it easier for non-wealthy candidates to run for office.

Glenn has been loaning back to his campaign all of the funds which he has taken,  a move that will allow him to pocket the full amount, almost $90,000, after the campaign is finished.

“I’m exercising the right to do that, and I’m loaning 100 percent right back to the campaign,” he said. “If you decide to do it, you have to do it this way,” he said. “There’s strict rules on how you do that.”

Glenn is running against three primary challengers in order to win the right to take on incumbent Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) in November’s general election. His opponents are Colorado State Sen. Owen Hill, retired Texas judge Bill Rhea and former Green Mountain Falls, CO Mayor Tyler Stevens.

Glenn was a candidate for U.S. Senate in 2016. He made headlines after dropping his endorsement for President Donald J. Trump over lewd comments the President made in an interview with Billy Bush 13 years ago.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
