    In her required financial disclosure, Rep. Rashida Tlaib did not identify the George Soros Open Society Foundation as the source of a payment she received for a “leadership fellowship,” a report said.

    Just in case anyone wants to go to the PRIMARY source of this story -- here it is...

    Dep Rep-Elect Rashida Tlaib Misrepresented Soros Stipend in Financial Disclosures

    Since she never has had a job OUTSIDE of politics her entire life (per the Wiki) what's she doing with a "fellowship grant" from Soros anyways? NEVER worked in community outreach of any kind as far as I can tell that WASN'T connected to campaigning for office or BEING in office.. Sounds like an illegal campaign finance issue to me... :badgrin:

    Who in the hell cares,

    How many crazy loons watchdog groups does the cons have: Set up to watch Hillary. LOL.

    The conservative group Donors Trust was the source of $500,000 of FACT's revenue in 2015 and $800,000 in 2016.[8][9] As a 501(c)(3) organization it is not required to disclose donors however Charles Koch has acknowledged giving to DonorsTrust.[10] FACT paid Whitaker $1.2 million, with the vast majority of the payments from 2016 to 2017.[11][12]

    FACT has largely focused on Hillary Clinton[13] and the e-mail scandal[14][15][16] or other Democratic representatives such as Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, Representative Patrick E. Murphy of Florida and Representative Ted Strickland of Ohio.[17][18] FACT lobbied against the confirmation of one-time Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland, and filed an FEC complaint against Democratic voter data firm Catalist in 2015.[9] Despite claiming to be nonpartisan, the organization called for ethics investigations into or filed complaints about forty-six different Democratic politicians, officials, and organizations, compared to only a few Republicans.[19] During his tenure, Whitaker wrote opinion pieces that appeared in USA Today and The Washington Examiner, and appeared regularly on conservative talk-radio shows and cable news.[20] In 2017 Whitaker as executive director of FACT wrote:[21]

    You know the new Democrats are not as savvy as the old Republican.

    Donors Trust is an American non-profit donor-advised fund. It was founded in 1999 with the goal of "safeguarding the intent of libertarian and conservative donors".[4]

    Donors Trust is a 501(c)(3) organization.[1] As a public charity and a donor-advised fund, Donors Trust offers clients a variety of tax advantages compared to a private foundation
