Another Democrat Was Just Caught Filling Their Pockets With Millions Of Taxpayer Money

The Democrats are so unbelievably corrupt that it is only a matter of time until the rug is pulled out from under their feet and they are destroyed once and for all. You will never hear about this information from the mainstream media though, the only stories you will hear from them is false accusations about Donald Trump and the Republicans and how he worked with the Russians which at this point we all know is completely bogus thanks to CNN. The Democrats are so desperate to keep their dirty little secrets hidden from the world that they have become a party of liars and murderers and there are no signs of them letting up, not as long as Trump is in office and hot on their heels.

One of the main reasons Donald Trump was elected is that the American people were fed up with the dishonesty and corruption. A major selling point for Trump was his promise to “drain the swamp” and weed out the corrupt officials in all levels of government and so far he is doing an amazing job and Democrats know it. Recently a shocking story has surfaced proving Trump right once again. Illinois Democrat Bobby Rush was discovered taking millions in taxpayer money and transferring it to his church in Chicago. The corrupt politician is literally stealing to pay for his benefit.

According to Free Beacon:

A wellness center connected to a church founded by Illinois Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush has received $650,000 in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017, public records show and has pulled in more than $15 million in grants since 2008.

Rush, who was first elected to Congress in 1992, founded the Beloved Community Christian Church, a non-denominational church located in Chicago, in 2002.

“I founded a church in Englewood, one of Chicago’s poorest and most fragile neighborhoods, and named it Beloved Community Christian Church,” Rush wrote in a 2011 op-ed published in the Huffington Post. “The church, once the site of a Black Panther breakfast program for children, now stands in tribute to Dr. King’s vision of the power of community. A social service center, a health center and an after school robotics program are also part of the church’s mission to care for people.”

The Democratic congressman has steered hundreds of thousands in campaign funds to the church.

Rush began making donations from his campaign to the Beloved Community Christian Church in 2006, just two years after it had opened. Since that time, nearly $200,000 was funneled to the church.

The social services arm of Rush’s church, the Beloved Community Family Wellness Center, is a not-for-profit federally qualified health center that provides “comprehensive, accessible, timely, and affordable primary health care, preventive education, and social service programs available to the Greater Englewood and surrounding communities.”

The center has received hundreds of thousands in taxpayer-funded government grants so far this year from the Department of Health and Human Services.

HHS gave the center $215,384 on March 21 and added $430,768 on May 23. Since 2008, the group has been the recipient of more than $15 million in taxpayer-funded government grants.

Kacy Rush, Rep. Rush’s daughter, is listed as a member of the Beloved Community Family Wellness Center on its 2014 Form 990, the most recently available filing from the group. Kacy is listed as a “director” of the wellness center on its website.

Rush’s nonprofit, the Beloved Community Family Services, a network that provides “compassionate services to promote cultural, economic and social well-being,” has also received taxpayer-funded money.

Rush requested a $100,000 earmark for the nonprofit that was approved in 2008. The nonprofit was awarded $305,500—$200,000 more than the initial request—which was tacked onto an appropriations bill.

The Department of Justice additionally gave the nonprofit a $290,663 grant in 2008 for what was marked as “developing, testing, and demonstrating promising new programs” for “juvenile justice programs.”

Another one of Rush’s nonprofits, the Rebirth of Englewood Community Development Corp., had its tax-exempt status revoked by the IRS in 2010 after it had failed to file disclosures three years in a row.

Bobby Rush has yet to comment on these developments. No doubt he is scrambling to cover his tracks in whatever way he possibly can to limit the damage he has already done. This is the reason we elected Donald Trump in the first place and we are seeing incredible results in just a few short months. It is about time we have a leader follow through with his words and if Trump continues on the course he is going, Democrats will never be in power again.
