SHADY DEMOCRAT IS BUSTED=> Businesses Tied to Claire McCaskill’s Family Received $131 MILLION in Federal Cash

Claire McCaskill got caught lying to Missouri voters in June.
The Obama Democrat told Missourians she was taking a bus tour of the Show Me State.

She didn’t tell them she was ditching the bus for her private plane during many of the stops.

She thought she’d get away with it.
She didn’t.

Now this…

Businesses tied to Claire McCaskill’s family received $131 MILLION in federal dollars.

The Kansas City Star reported:

Businesses tied to U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill’s husband have been awarded more than $131 million in federal subsidies since the Missouri Democrat took office in 2007, an analysis by The Kansas City Star found.

Joseph Shepard’s personal income from his investments in those businesses has grown exponentially during his wife’s two terms in the Senate.

The federal payments don’t go directly into Shepard’s pocket. Most of the money goes toward operating costs for government-subsidized housing projects Shepard is invested in. Those companies then distribute the profits to Shepard and other investors.

In 2006, the year before McCaskill entered the Senate, her husband’s personal income from those investments was between $1,608 and $16,731, according to the senator’s financial disclosure forms.

In 2017, five years into McCaskill’s second term, Shepard personally earned between $365,374 and $1,118,158 from investments in housing projects that received federal subsidies, the disclosure forms show. Disclosure forms only provide ranges of income.
