EXPOSED: Corrupt Democrat Paid His Wife $400,000 With Campaign Funds

Democratic Representative Luis Gutierrez is the type of person the voters of Illinois trust with their tax dollars. He's also the same man that's been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to his wife since 2003.

From the Free Beacon (archived link):

Gutierrez, who was first elected to Congress in 1992, recently grabbed headlines for saying that Democrats would “eliminate” Trump as president if they take back the House of Representatives. It appears the one thing Gutierrez won’t eliminate anytime soon is the lucrative campaign payments to his wife.

Rep. Gutierrez’s wife, Soraida Gutierrez, was a registered lobbyist in the state of Illinois from 2003 to 2009 before joining Gutierrez for Congress in 2010. Since this time, Soraida has been generously compensated for acting as the campaign’s office manager, treasurer, and fundraiser. Soraida has also been the top recipient of cash from the committee on numerous occasions since she began receiving payments from her husband’s campaign.

This year alone, Gutierrez's campaign has reported $72,000 in expenditures, over 40% of which went to his wife to the tune of $30,000.

As a representative of Illinois's 4th District, Gutierrez's payouts are especially despicable when the average Illinoisan household income of $59,588 is taken into account. Add to that an annual government salary of over $1 million last year (derived from tax-payer dollars of course) and the hypocrisy becomes clear.

I believe we should value and reward the hard work of the American people with a decent, livable minimum wage.
— Luis Gutierrez, in a display of complete hypocrisy

Corrupt leftists like Luis Gutierrez serve only themselves. The groups they supposedly advocate for, such as the "working poor" and immigrant families are nothing more than political pawns used to keep them in power (and flush with cash).

Remember, Luis Gutierrez is the man that has 'served' in government for over two decades. Consider that the next time he calls for expansion programs and more funding.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
