REPORT: Ted Lieu Donated More Than $50k to Stanford from Campaign Funds

How would you feel if you donated money to a political campaign only to find out later that money was used to grease the ways for college admission?

If you donated to Ted Lieu, that is now a question that you must answer.

According to reports, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) sent more than $50,000 from campaign funds to Stanford University, where his son is about to attend school.

He Did What?

According to FEC filings, Lieu donated $51,046 to Stanford University between February 2016 and June 2018.

As an alumnus of Standard, it is not surprising that he donated to the school.

The problem here is that he didn’t take money out of his personal account but instead used leftover campaign funds for the donations.

Coincidentally, Lieu’s son is an incoming freshman of the Class of 2025.

What makes this even shadier is that when a Twitter user posted about the donations, the account was suspended…

Lieu’s spokesperson is trying to dismiss this as nothing to see, stating, “Campaigns can and do donate to charities and universities from their campaign funds, but it’s more common when a member is retiring and has leftover cash.”

That may be so, but this particular donation looks far more like a bribe to ensure his son was admitted than just some random donation.

All I know is if I had donated to his campaign and found out this is how the funds were being used, I would be burning up the phone lines asking more my money back.
