Corrupt Congress: Nancy Pelosi's husband received taxpayer-funded COVID-19 aid

A damning (though unsurprising) new report from the Associated Press has uncovered rampant corruption surrounding taxpayer-funded COVID-19 aid.

According to the report, at least a dozen lawmakers have ties to organizations that received federal coronavirus aid. The new data shows how "Washington insiders were both author and beneficiary of one of the biggest government programs in U.S. history."

Neither Democrats nor Republicans were exempt. A California hotel partially owned by Nancy Pelosi's husband received money from the American people. So did a shipping business owned by the family of Mitch McConnell's wife.

Other lawmakers received funds directly to businesses they owned.

Car dealerships owned by at least three Republican House members — Reps. Roger Williams of Texas, Vern Buchanan of Florida and Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania — received money. So, too, did fast-food franchises owned by Rep. Kevin Hern, R-Okla., a law firm owned by the husband of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and the former law firm of Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., which employs his wife.

Money also flowed to a farming and equipment business owned by the family of Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-Mo., and a regional casino company led by the husband of Rep. Susie Lee, D-Nev.

Usually, our "leaders" in Congress can hide this kind of corruption behind layers of bureaucracy and armies of lawyers. But the frantic, last-minute nature of the COVID-19 aid package kept them from building in their usual protections. Now, their waste and abuse are out in the open.

The American people deserve better. They deserve a federal government that doesn't waste their money or use it to fill their own pockets. They deserve a federal government that doesn't control their daily lives. They deserve federal politicians who truly serve the people rather than take advantage of their position.

Congress won't impose any of these reforms, but We the People can with an Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. Under the Convention of States Project plan, these amendments can limit the power of the federal government, force Congress to be fiscally responsible, and limit the terms of office for federal officials.

This complete package of amendments can put Congress back in its constitutional box. No more blank checks funded by the American people. No more career politicians. And no more unlimited power.
