Eddie Bernice Johnson Scholarship Scandal

19 Oct

A burgeoning scandal on how certain members of the CBC are handing out scholarships to their own relatives, and to political allies. In the spotlight is Dallas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, who awarded $31,000 in Congressional Black Caucus Foundation scholarships to her grand children and nieces. Now, accusations have been made that she awarded a $1,000 scholarship to the son of a senior executive at the Dallas Airport who may have had some influence over her business interests.

Now – the money to the relatives was unquestionably wrong. However the accusation relative to the Dallas Airport official seems exceedingly thin. Especially in view of the amount of money involved – $1.000. here are Congressmen and Senators on the Hill who are being slipped tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars under the table by Healthcare, communications, and even hostile foreign governments. So the question is…

Why all this focus on small potatoes? Especially in view that some of the elected folks on the Hill are committing what amounts to treason… Some, if accounts are to believed, even accepting Communist Chinese money to fund election ads.

    I agree with this being small potatoes. What really bothers me is the timing of these announcements.

    Supposedly this committee is headed by Democrats so why did they wait almost two years and right before a major congressional election to reveal these ethics charges.

      Something stinks in the House. Why haven’t these Democrats prosecuted even one Republican?
