美国问责基金会 (美国空军), 保守的非营利组织, 周四对 Swalwell 提起诉讼, citing recent reports on the congressman’s campaign expenditures.
“The American people rightfully expect elected officials to spend their time in Washington serving constituents instead of themselves,” AAF director Matthew Buckham told Fox News in a statement. “We all see through political elites like Eric Swalwell, who think they are above the law to use campaign funds as a private piggy bank for their own personal leisure and entertainment.”
The complaint, 福克斯新闻独家获得, alleges that the Swalwell campaign’s FEC reports suggest “anomalies in campaign expenditures that raise troubling questions as to whether campaign disbursements went towards personal use or to the direct benefit of family members.”
“These anomalies include what appears to be preloading of campaign dollars to a Starbucks account and/or gift cards, paying a family member over $ 17,000 for ‘childcare’, attending the musical Beach Blanket Babylon, and personal medical testing for COVID-19, 除其他外,” the complaint continues.
