Congressional Black Caucus PAC Spends Big on Luxury Resorts, Restaurants

The Congressional Black Caucus PAC (CBC PAC) spends lavishly on upscale resorts and hotels, catering at exclusive restaurants, and on fundraising and Broadway tickets, according to a review of campaign finance records.

The CBC PAC, which is the fundraising arm of the Congressional Black Caucus, puts far more money towards administrative and fundraising purposes than it donates to candidates, the intended purpose of the political action committee.Image result for slush fund

The CBC PAC claims its mission is to increase "the number of African Americans in the U.S. Congress" and to "support non-Black candidates that champion our interests, and promote African American participation in the political process-with an emphasis on young voters," according to its website.

The PAC spent hundreds of thousands throughout the 2016 election cycle on administrative expenses that included bills for lavish trips that were paid by the committee.

$5,000 payment was made in January 2016 from the PAC to the Buccaneer Hotel located in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, one of the "world's top 50 tropical resorts."

Later, on March 21, 2016, the PAC made another payment to a resort in the Virgin Islands. This time, the money went towards a stay at the "one-of-a-kind" Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort and Spa also located in St. Croix. The Renaissance is situated "among the foothills of a lush tropical rainforest and only steps away from the pristine sands of Estate Davis Bay."

The PAC spent $820 on taxicabs while in the Virgin Islands. More than $2,000 was spent at Sweeny's St. Croix Tours in the town of Christiansted, considered "the most beautiful town in the West Indies." Sweeny's provides an open-air bus for its guests as they embark on safari tours of the island. More than $4,500 was also spent by the PAC on catering at Un Amore, an Italian restaurant.

The group's largest expenses were made in New York and Washington, D.C.

The Conrad Hotel, a luxury all-suite hotel located in New York City, is a favorite of the PAC, which spent in excess of $40,000 at the venue throughout the last election cycle. Another favorite of the PAC, the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, D.C., that "plays home to dignitaries, royalties, and refined travelers alike," received more than $18,000 in payments from the committee.

And then we've got the Democratic Caucus trying to sabotage Trump:
BREAKING: Democrats Paid Muslims $4 MILLION to Take Out Trump

The investigation into the five Pakistani IT staff, who allegedly accessed House computers without permission and stole equipment, has yielded some darker information.



These five people earned four million, including from several representatives who never or rarely used their services, via The Daily Caller.

The median yearly salary for assistants in the House is $43,000, but one of these suspected criminals, Imran Awan, has made $1.2 million since 2010.

The suspects are three brothers, Imran, Jamal, and Abid, as well as two of their wives, Hina Alvi and Natalia Sova.



Abid has made more than one million dollars, as has his brother’s wife, Hina.

Among the representatives who employed the brothers or their wives are Jim Costa, (D-CA), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Tim Ryan (D-OH), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), and 27 others, all Democrats.

Many of these representatives are on important committees on intelligence and foreign policy. These five would have had access to their employer’s full computer, including emails.

The Democratic Caucus also paid Hina Alvi for her work. However, Hina is the most suspicious of all. One former House staffer said that Hina rarely showed up for work. Her husband, Imran, would, “take her around to the offices, but after a while he stopped even putting up the illusion and did all that stuff himself.”



Only 100 staffers of the roughly 25,000 who have worked there during this period have made more money than Imran.

The brothers regularly spent time in Pakistan. One of them declared bankruptcy in 2012 yet was fired with enough money in the bank to give a $30,000 loan to a friend. Clearly, this all stinks to high heaven.



We need to get to the bottom of this investigation right now and anyone involved should be brought up on charges of treason!

These are Liberals, so what is new ????????????? 

This so ticked me off.  Proving they are there to party not to work for the people. Grand scale to vote out is needed.

I have no problems with the black caucus.  They have always been thief's and crooks.  So what's new? However, I'm certainly glad that someone has brought their behaviors to the attention of the American public.

This doesn't bother me as much as eight years of fressing and schnorring by the OScumBags.

love how those who claim to represent oppressed people live better than the average guy can only imagine

yup thats what we call a slush fund.    another one is the clinton foundation

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
