    Elaine Chao created special path for McConnell’s favored projects

    It's Mitch and Donald's Swamp - We just live in it.

    The Transportation Department under Secretary Elaine Chao designated a special liaison to help with grant applications and other priorities from her husband Mitch McConnell’s state of Kentucky, paving the way for grants totaling at least $78 million for favored projects as McConnell prepared to campaign for reelection.

    Chao’s aide Todd Inman, who stated in an email to McConnell’s Senate office that Chao had personally asked him to serve as an intermediary, helped advise the senator and local Kentucky officials on grants with special significance for McConnell — including a highway-improvement project in a McConnell political stronghold that had been twice rejected for previous grant applications.

    But wait there's more - Elaine also caught pimping her family business with China - Perhaps even Swampier!

    I cannot stand McConnell.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    She denies it, its just allegations which democrats are chock full of
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Which one does she deny - - The FACTS from the email indicating a sudden approval of grants previously denied for Mitch's reelection bid, or pimping her family business with China?

    McConnell is as big a spender as any Democrat. Getting judges approved is his only redeeming act.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Every politician in DC looks for ways to get their pork delivered to their constituents. I hate it. Please God... have the meteor land on the Capitol building during a joint meeting of both Houses. TYIA
