Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) circumvents federal anti-nepotism laws by giving jobs to his cousins’ children.
Ted Cruz hires family members for government jobs
Business Insider reported:
Cruz employed his first cousin’s daughter in his Senate office as a paid press assistant and placed his cousin’s son on a coveted Senate internship. Cruz put his cousin on the payroll for his 2016 presidential campaign and later for his Senate campaign, records show.
Federal law prohibits members of Congress and other government officials from hiring close relatives – including first cousins - in paid, taxpayer-funded jobs.
Ted Cruz has no defense
When asked his office why Senator Cruz was using tax dollars to hire family members, they responded to the classic guilty Republican claim that the story was “fake news.”
Everyone in American politics knows that Senator Cruz lies with the same frequency as the rest of us ingesting oxygen, but there is also a level of corruption against the Texas Senator that has not been reported, and has been inadequately, up to this point.
It’s not just the compulsive lies, the instigation of attempts to overthrow the US government, and the vacation to Cancun while its constituents froze to death.
Ted Cruz abuses his position as a civil servant.
Senator Cruz will run for president again in 2024, so he’s replaced Lyin ‘Ted with Corruption Ted.
Neither Ted should be allowed near the White House.
