Mitch McConnell May Have Committed A Felony and Democrats Demand An Investigation



In a letter to the Senate Select Committee on Ethics, the Kentucky Democratic Party is calling for an investigation into whether Mitch McConnell used official government resources to solicit contributions to his reelection campaign.

The letter reads in part:



Mitch McConnell is no stranger to unethical behavior. In 2013, CREW summed up McConnell’s ethical issues, “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a five-term senator from Kentucky. His ethics issues stem from his possible use of Senate staff and resources to conduct opposition research for his campaign. He was included in CREW’s 2007, 2008, and 2009 reports on congressional corruption for unrelated matters.”

Kentucky Republicans launched their own complaint against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes with the FEC that accused her of renting her campaign bus from her father at a below market rate. If this is true, the bus would be an illegal campaign gift.

Selling access to the Senate Dining Room is felonious degree of corruption. The fact that Republicans can only answer this serious charge by talking about a bus demonstrates the severity of the potential offense. None of this will be settled before Election Day, but it is extremely doubtful that the Senate Ethic Committee will get involved before November.

The Kentucky Senate race has gotten very ugly. Mitch McConnell has been corrupt for decades, but he has become so safe in his incumbency that he confidently flaunts his crimes out in the open. Republicans call President Obama a dictator and a king. They talk about impeachment for fantasy offenses, but it is their own Senate leader who is abusing his office and public resources to stay in power.

Instead of measuring the drapes in the Majority Leader’s office, Sen. McConnell deserves to be fitted for an orange jumpsuit.

  1. I am betting the entire congress could be busted for something. The arrogance sticks to high heaven from them all.

    With McConnel’s new found wealth while the rest of thew country lost pensions and homes, I have no doubt he is dirty

  2. That horse has left the barn long time ago. Can someone please tell me on a Senators salary how can one net worth goes from 3 million to over 38 million?

  3. Nothing will come of this before the November elections except bluster. Unfortunately charges like this often work right into the candidates “martyr complex” and cement their support.

  4. Why this is not hammered home in ads is beyond me. Sometimes I think Democrats are too scared to go out and win.

  5. It would be good to have a historical timeline of corruption by Mitch McConnel … He goes – we take the Senate.

  6. Put the old sorry low life in prison for the rest of his natural life and that would be really to good for him.

  7. It’s time this dried up prune pay for all the nasty things he’s said and done. He’s done enough damage. Put him away so he can’t hurt another person. The man has no soul.

  8. He can keep Ritchie Farmer company. Farmer, who was head of KY Agriculture department, is now serving time in the big house. He used his office staff for his own personal use, used KY taxpayer money for travel and expensive hotel accomodations, not paying taxes and a host of other offenses.

    Farmer was also an adulterer. While still married he hired his mistress! He actually had the gall to run for Lt Governor when David Williams ran for Governor against Beshear. Williams is just as bad as McConnell, and Tea Party supporter to boot.

    I hope something comes of this. Even if it’s not resolved before elections in November, the Grimes campaign would be fools not to run with it.

  9. I live in Southern Illinois in a town close to Kentucky and his wife works for organizations that are to committed to getting rid of coal and he is running adds about President Obama’s “war on coal”, he is a consummate liar, a conman of the highest order.

  10. honesty and integrity of an American government official should be transparent. I won’t say beyond reproach because we’re all human and everybody makes mistakes, but a known pattern of clear corruption goes well beyond ‘we’re all human’ and cannot, must not be accepted or tolerated. For too long the republicans have pointed fingers at their opponents and have either exaggerated or lied about any number of false allegations. It’s time for them to clean their own house and it would be a sin to allow them to remain in office until they have done so.

  11. Comes as no surprise to me ALL RATpubliKKKans are CROOKS ! 4 of the top GOP Gov. running for office are under indictment and RomLIE is hiding money from IRS in offsbore accounts !

  12. I have FRIENDED Mitch McConnell on my fB page. I want to see all the “lies and spin” he puts out there. I noticed that many negative comments were given to him then all the negative stopped on his FB page. It was because one of his “staff” who runs and works his Facebook blocked all the people who wrote negative. I can see his POSTS but cant post a comment. I see on occasion several people telling this story on a new FB account name……so now all you see are the “Mitch save us from the evil democrats” and “mitch thanks for being JESUS like to all the people”…….my comment is that MITCH BLOCKS freedom of speech on his FREE advertisement on FB

  13. djchefron,

    I could not agree more with you! I am about sick and tired of receiving email after email from our DNC soliciting for my funds, only to not hear any strong messaging from our Party. He who controls the narrative is winning the election.

    I was under the impression that the Democratic lawmakers before breaking for recess came out with a plan for Americans, similar to the Republican’s Contract With America back in the day. How many ads do we hear about that plan?

    Our party must do better if they expect to excite the electorate!

  14. I have been thinking the same thing. Maybe they are saving it for after labor day because that’s when the experts say people start paying attention. The same experts that lose time after time after time. I am in the wrong business because it seems that in this idiocracy failure gets rewarded

  15. DJ, I also get probable 10-15 or more emails a day begging for more money to fight the Koch’s and the Republicans and counter their attack ads, but so far all I see are Republican ads. I hope they are waiting for the right time or something along those lines.

  16. I have always love this quote from WW1
    ‘Hard pressed on my right. My center is yielding. Impossible to maneuver. Situation excellent. I attack.’ (Ferdinand Foch during the First Battle of the Marne, Sept 1914)

    The Democrats would be wise to follow that advise

  17. McConnell reminds me of one of those grey/silvery bugs, you find hiding under still wet cow paddies. Judging by McConnell appearance, I think I am pretty close to being correct about him.

  18. And still he is somehow opened up a four point lead in Kentucky according to PPP so I guess Kentucky loves them some conservative slime.

  19. Its still early and Grimes have not really attacked his record but if it holds up then the people of Kentucky will give the rest of us the big middle finger

  20. Not about the turtle but its from the same septic tank known as republicans

    Governor Ultrasound: ‘That Rolex Came From Santa’
    We get to the Rolex. I will just quote the liveblog directly on this one:

    McDonnell said his wife gave it to him as a Christmas present in 2011 — wrapped in a non-Rolex box, with no accompanying paperwork. “The packing that I got said, ‘From Santa,’” McDonnell said, “but that’s something my wife typically does.”

    LMBAO but you got to admit that is original

  21. Oops!!!
