Credit check: Thieves are swiping hundreds of thousands in campaign cash from members of Congress
Several members of Congress have been targeted by thieves who nabbed hundreds of thousands of dollars combined from their campaign accounts as fraudsters and cybercriminals continue to exploit entities involved in federal systems for major gains, according to Federal Election Commission filings reviewed by the Washington Examiner.
Federal campaigns and political action committees reportedly hemorrhaged at least $2.7 million in 2021 due to theft and fraud, which has also been rampant in separate government-run systems like the taxpayer-backed COVID-19 relief system. Thieves have recently obtained roughly $713,000 from campaigns for four lawmakers, who have in some cases recouped the sums, FEC documents dated between December 2022 and January show.
