A scandal-free administration - Mayor Pete

| No Comments

Looks like his past is coming to haunt him - The London Daily Mail:

Pete Buttigieg accepted $250,000 and gifts from mayoral campaign donors who were later awarded $33million in city contracts, raising concerns of 'pay to play' as Transportation Secretary doles out $210billion in infrastructure plan

    • Documents obtained by DailyMail.com reveal former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign took a total of $253,750 from 23 companies
    • Executives of those companies were then awarded a combined $33,280,426 in city infrastructure jobs from the Board of Public Works on which he was seated
    • Buttigieg, 40 - now the US Transportation Secretary - will oversee $210billion in discretionary grants under the new bipartisan infrastructure bill
    • But government watchdogs say the Democrat's pattern of donations and contracts as mayor could present the appearance of a 'pay to play' scandal
    • 'This is alarming, and very concerning, because this is the swamp personified,' Taxpayers Protection Alliance president David Williams told DailyMail.com

This is my surprised face...  Why?  Were you expecting anything better of him?
