Illegal Immigration Advocate & Congressman Busted Funneling Campaign Money to Family
Liberal Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is easily recognizable among those who keep an eye on the goings on in Washington, D.C. He’s most well known for his undying support of immigration reform and his efforts to open our borders and to grant amnesty to every illegal alien… ever.
However, Gutierrez may soon become infamous for more than just his foolhardy approach to immigration reform. He’s gotten himself caught up in a bit of a scandal, and while Democrat scandals don’t seem to cause as much of a ruckus as they should, this one could still end up ruining the Illinois congressman’s career.
According to a new report from the Washington Free Beacon Rep. Gutierrez has paid his wife and daughters hundreds of thousands of dollars, from campaign funds, over the last 5 or 6 years. While the practice is not strictly illegal, it is illegal for the candidate to personally gain from funds raised to campaign. Which means that while the fact that Gutierrez’s wife has made more than $300K over the last four election cycles is not illegal, it is ethically very questionable.
