Dear fellow tax hikers, recent filings have shown that our beloved Congresswoman Jean Schmidt raised exactly zero dollars for her Legal Expense Fund in this year's 2nd quarter. Schmidt raised only $5010 total in prior quarters. At this rate, she will pay off the approximately $515,000 she owes in a future century.
In reality, even that is an optimistic scenario. Legal experts generally agree that the order from the House Ethics Committee to pay these legals bills carries no weight once Schmidt is no longer a Congressman. The only way those bills will be paid is if Jean Schmidt proves to be a woman of great integrity. LOL LOL LOL LOL!
As all of our readers know, these legal fees were incurred during a lawsuit Schmidt filed against David Krikorian because he said something mean about her. Her case was handled by Turkish interests and over $500,000 of legal fees were paid for by the Turkish Coalition of America, violating Congressional gift rules by, oh, over $500,000. Schmidt insists that she had no idea she was receiving these illegal gifts.
We completely believe that a U.S. Congressman can take illegal gifts of over $500,000 and not know about it. It happens to us all the time!
We applaud Jean Schmidt for filing a lawsuit because somebody said something mean about her. We applaud her for illegally accepting over $500,000 of gifts. We applaud her for failing to report those gifts. We applaud her for defying the House Ethics Committee's order to repay those funds. We are still very upset that she was defeated in March's primary by some conservative man who served his country in the military. With a record like this, who could ever want to see Jean Schmidt ejected from Congress?
