JOE GOES AFTER RON: Biden’s Treasury Dept. IG Looking Into DeSantis’ Migrant Flights

Published on

Well, that didn’t take long. Did we really think Joe’s phony act in Florida during hurricane Ian was going to really fool anyone? All show Joe, that’s what they’ve been calling him for 48 years – or at least that’s what I’ve been calling for as long as I can remember.

Now that Hurricane Ian is over and the cameras are off, Joe Biden’s Treasury Department is planning to audit whether spending by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on migrant flights was illegal. Democratic lawmakers want to know if the America First governor improperly used funds from the American Rescue Plan. Let the witch hunt begin!

According to Fox News, Florida lawmakers authorized a $12 million migrant program funded with interest earnings from the federal Coronavirus State Fiscal Recovery Fund, according to documents, Fox News reports.

“As part of its oversight responsibilities for the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund, The Treasury Office of the Inspector General has audit work planned on recipients’ compliance with eligible use guidance,” the Office of the Inspector General wrote in a letter dated Oct. 7 and made public Wednesday. “In addition, as part of our oversight work of the Coronavirus Relief Fund established by the CARES Act, we have already sought information from Florida about appropriate use of that fund.”

“We will review the allowability of use of [State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund] funds related to immigration generally, and will specifically confirm whether interest earned on SLFRF funds was utilized by Florida related to immigration activities, and if so, what conditions and limitations apply to such use,” the inspector general continued.

Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey confirmed that the Treasury Department responded to his request to investigate DeSantis.

“.@USTreasury responded to my letter, confirming that it will investigate @GovRonDeSantis’ use of Covid relief funds to cruelly transport immigrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard under false pretenses and without any consideration for their personal dignity or basic needs.”
