Schiff Demands FEC Fine Trump Campaign [semi-satire]
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 12 April 2020 | John Semmens

While front line health professionals are waging a 24/7 battle to care for COVID-19 patients, the Trump campaign has been using donated funds to buy meals to feed some of these workers. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif), leader of the recent attempt to impeach and remove President Trump from office, is demanding that the Federal Election Commission penalize the campaign for "this misappropriation of campaign funds."

"Campaign funds are supposed to be used for campaign activities, not acts of benevolence," Schiff complained. "Donors give campaign contributions expecting that it will be used to win elections or purchase favorable laws or policies. The sort of deviation that the Trump organization is engaged in is unfair to those of us who follow the rules."

Schiff expressed the hope that "the FEC will come down hard on these guys. Maybe fines triple the amount they spent on the donated meals, ankle-bracelets for the campaign staff guilty of this infringement, and phone-taps to help deter future repetition of any similar illegal uses of funds. Meanwhile, I will be adding this charge to the next impeachment motion the House files against President Trump."

Brad Parscale, manager for Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, dismissed Schiff's accusation as "pure nonsense. We are not only campaigners for Trump. We are also human beings. We are confident that the people who have donated to the President's reelection approve of our effort to show appreciation for those busy saving lives during this health crisis. Our donors are also normal human beings. I shudder to imagine what kind of people donate to the campaign of someone as vile and reprehensible as Mr. Schiff."

“Adam Schiff accuses the Babylon Bee of printing his leaks before he leaks them.”
