REPORT: Democrat Eric Swalwell Splurging with Campaign Funds

Have you ever wondered what politicians do with all that money they raise?

Well, in the case of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), you live the high life.

An audit of Swalwell’s campaign finance records shows that the congressman appears to be living the jet-set lifestyle on his donors.

Must Be Nice

Over a period of about three months, Swalwell wrote of more than $6,000 on liquor and fine dining alone.

He listed dinners at some of the best restaurants in DC, a Las Vegas trip, limo rides, and about $300 on an app to order liquor while in Boston on several occasions.

All told, Swalwell had more than $15,000 listed for his third-quarter “expenses.”

His second-quarter expense sheet was similar, with more than $21,000 in charges at the Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA.

A property, by the way, where his wife worked for four years as a Director of Sales.

So, if his spending holds true for the year, Swalwell is blowing somewhere between $80,000 to $100,000 a year, living the high life by tapping into campaign donations.

Swalwell, of course, did not return calls for clarification in the spending, but this is where your money goes when you donate to politicians.

If Swalwell were a normal citizen, this would be considered embezzlement, but he is in Congress, so he gets to do whatever he wants.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
