BUSTED: GOP congressional nominee reportedly ‘violated several tax and election laws’

Published

on

Republican congressional nominee Elizabeth Heng, “appears to have violated several tax and election laws,” the Fresno Bee reported Monday.

Heng is a former Capitol Hill staffer for congressional Republicans.

“Washington property records show Heng claimed a condominium as her principal residence despite living and actively campaigning in Fresno. She also collected rent on the property while receiving a tax credit meant for permanent residents and improperly registered to vote in California while technically claiming residency more than 3,000 miles away,” the Bee explained.

On her financial disclosure form, filed on May 6, she noted receiving more than $5,000 in rental income of the condo, although rental properties do not qualify for the homestead tax exemption.

Heng campaign spokesman Matt Langston claimed she, “has grown up in the Fresno area, votes in the Fresno area, and only claims Fresno as her home.”

The Bee report includes pictures of her Washington, D.C. property records and and voter registration form in California.

The deduction was removed from the property on October 16.

Heng is challenging Rep. Jim Costa (D-CA) in the state’s 16th congressional district.

"There is almost no chance Senate Republicans would vote to subpoena those witnesses without assent from the White House and calling their own preferred witnesses."

Supreme Court timeline on Trump’s taxes gives time for Manhattan prosecutors to file charges: Former US Attorney

Published

on

Former U.S. Attorney Mimi Rocah tweeted a recent report that the U.S. Supreme Court would be taking up President Donald Trump's case to keep his taxes away from investigators.

That case between Trump and Congress invokes a 1924 law that says the Ways and Means Committee has the authority to seek tax returns. Rocah mocked the president for being "so shady, so corrupt, so unlawful, that you’re willing to fight the release of your tax returns all the way to the Supreme Court."

Trump says cough drop in Pelosi’s mouth was her teeth falling out

Published

on

President Donald Trump lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi Sunday on Twitter instead of defending himself against accusations of bribery.

Pelosi did her weekly press conference at the end of the week while sucking on either a cough drop or a mint. It wouldn't be shocking if it was the former, as Pelosi was clearing her throat and also drinking water while speaking to the press.

Trump decided it was neither, and instead, it was false teeth falling out of her mouth.

"Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!" Trump tweeted in response to a video from the press conference.
