Rashida Tlaib Now Haunted By Campaign Salary Scandal and Fake Residence Scandal
Michigan Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is rocked by another scandal pertaining to her shady behavior with respect to election rules.
The Washington Examiner reports: “The newly elected firebrand Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., could be in hot water after Federal Election Commission filings show she paid herself thousands of dollars in salary from her successful midterm campaign. The filing shows the Michigan lawmaker taking more than $17,000 in two disbursements as a salary nearly a month after the conclusion of the 2018 midterm elections. A candidate can only draw a salary from the official campaign for the duration of their candidacy. The FEC specifies that a candidate no longer qualifies for salary payments from the day after the general election. The two salary disbursements were made on Nov. 16 for $2,000 and on Dec. 1 for $15,500.”

Democrat Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is haunted by a fake-residence scandal as the petition to impeach her closes in on 300,000 signatures.
State senator Jon Bumstead of Michigan confirmed to Big League Politics through an intermediary that state representatives in Michigan are legally required to live in their districts. But Tlaib lived in suburban Dearborn while she was falsely representing a district in Detroit. Tlaib lied about her address on her voter registration — a crime — and kicked off her entire political career with the lie.
The Change.org petition, started by MRS. AMERICAN CITIZEN, focuses on the fake-residency claim against Tlaib, and has 282,518 signatures as of this writing. Tlaib infamously vowed to “impeach the mother—” President Trump.
Big League Politics exclusively reported:
Michigan Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib registered to vote from a false address, and represented a state House district that she did not actually live in, according to credit score and property records obtained by Big League Politics.
Tlaib’s own father even said that Tlaib “lied” about her address in order to run for office.
Here is what the evidence, presented below, proves:
- Rashida Tlaib registered to vote at a false address as she embarked on her first political campaign. “Registering to vote using a false address” is one of a number of crimes that fall into the voter fraud category.
- Tlaib ran for and represented the 12th district in the Michigan House of Representatives even though she was not a resident of that district.
- Records show that Tlaib was an “Absentee Owner” at the Detroit house she claimed to live in.
- Tlaib moved to her official Detroit apartment address, which she reported to the FEC after the election, at the start of her 2018 campaign. Her new address was recorded for the first time one day before she announced her campaign for Congress.
Congressman Jon Bumstead of Michigan told Big League Politics through an intermediary that Michigan state representatives are required by law to live in the district they represent.
Michigan Election Law requires candidates to submit an Affidavit of Identity, where they must provide truthful residence information.
Tlaib’s father made a series of comments to Charlie LeDuff of The Detroit Newson March 13, 2010, in an article that no longer has an active ink but exists in the The Detroit News archives:
“Now Tlaib’s father is piping in. He said his daughter misrepresented her residency when she signed an election affidavit in 2008 with the Wayne County Clerk claiming she was a citizen of Detroit.
According to that affidavit, Tlaib claimed she lived at (redacted) in Detroit. That house is owned in part by her father, Harbi Elabed, and he now says she did not live there and he was only recently made aware that she had claimed so. “She lied,” said Elabed, 61, an immigrant from Jerusalem and father of 14 who prides himself on Old World values of parental fealty. “She lied big-time to get elected. I never teach her that way. I teach her the right way. It’s my house. She didn’t live there. She lived in Dearborn in her house with her husband and boy.”
Dearborn is not a part of the 12th House District that Tlaib was elected to represent…
Asked why he was tattling on his daughter, Harbi Elabed said it was a growing litany of transgressions that his daughter committed upon him — culminating in a dispute about care of his aged mother, who suffers from dementia. According to Harbi, his daughter sided against him and in favor of his nephew in a battle of custody, a complete breach of family values, he said.”
