You may have noticed I have a category here at Frauds and Crooks entitled ‘Politicians as frauds‘ where I archive stories like this one.
I suspect that most of you are news junkies who have seen this story from last Monday at Big League Politics (if you aren’t already following Big League you should!), but am posting it just in case. (hat tip: Joanne)
Rashida Tlaib Haunted By Fake Residence Scandal As Nearly 300k Sign Petition To ‘IMPEACH’ Her
Democrat Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is haunted by a fake-residence scandal as the petition to impeach her closes in on 300,000 signatures.
Congressman 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.
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.
The issue of residency for members of Congress should be a no-brainer. The person we send to represent us should live in the district. In Maryland it is permitted to live in one district and run for Congress in another and it galls me to be represented by a rich big city Democrat while living in a rural red county.
What is the law where you live? If it’s like Maryland, maybe you can work to change that and the outrageous gerrymandering that goes on to make it even easier to disenfranchise rural/conservative voters.
