Conservatives Deliver Fast Food Tech Ethics Complaint Against Congressman Cleaver

There's a lot of right-wing rage over this one but the IT story is essentially unsexy . . . And it's mostly local fallout from a somewhat worthwhile Buzzfeed story from early last year that still hasn't garnered much interest. Still, here's the right-wing take that may or may not have merit. Typically, D.C. is where most ethics complaints go to die. You decide:

Ethics Complaint: Rep. Cleaver Let Non-Staffer Access His Servers, Paid McDonald's Worker As IT Guy

Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver hired former McDonald's employee Rao Abbas to manage his data for three years Cleaver claimed on an audio recording that now-indicted Imran Awan was actually his IT aide FACT has submitted an ethics complaint against Cleaver for allegedly having Awan as his aide but paying Abbas $60,0000 A Democratic congressman is facing an ethics complaint for paying an unqualified former McDonald's employee to manage his data for three years and allegedly admitting to handing control of his servers to now-indicted Pakistani-American Imran Awan despite Awan not being on his staff.

Which side of his mouth was he speaking from?

This doesn't surprise me. Cleaver has been a liar and crook for many years and he has said so himself. His exact words; (You have to be a little dishonest to get anywhere.) But yet liberals are sold because he calls himself a minister, and they keep voting him in, and will do it again.

Everyone should read the entire article. It sounds like this is a Major screw up by Cleaver. It's interesting that a national site has this story but zero about it from the KC Star. If you want the good scoop about what's happening in KC you have to read Tkc because the Star is worthless.

If A Republican had done this, it would be a front page story in the Star. I laughed out loud when I read their claim of a balanced opinion page.
