U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin released a new television ad over the weekend accusing incumbent Democrat Claire Mccaskill of getting rich off of the 2009 stimulus program.
Ever wonder why Claire McCaskill called the stimulus bill wildly successful, the commercial asked. Well now we know. The stimulus made McCaskill rich. More than $1 million paid to partnerships owned by McCaskills family.
The ad specifically points to $787,581 in stimulus funding directed to pay off debt within the Department of Housing Developments Section 8 housing assistance program, which helps low-income renters afford housing.
HUD chose to use its portion of the stimulus to pay off past-due funding for development projects, some of which McCaskills husband, Joseph Shepard, had financial stakes. Milan Manor Development, Saddlewood Apartments, and Sunset Hills Apartments all received funds from the Recovery Acts Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program.
Two other companies with similar ties to McCaskills family, Applegate Apartments and Marston Apartments, received a total of $178,689 from the same program, according to USASpending.gov, a government website established to track stimulus spending. They were not highlighted in Akins ad.

prove it over and over
That will leave a mark.
That is no way to treat a lady. /s
LOL! In that case, Akin’s campaign is treating her justly.
That’s no lady, that’s a Missouri congresswoman.
Clair isn’t the only one to get rich off stimulus. Pelosi did allright too. In fact a bunch of them did, Not only that the stimulus bought them the Union vote.
No wonder he frightens the GOPe right out of their panties.
Pelosi’s net worth has increased some 2600% since her first term in the house. That’s pretty spectacular by anyone’s standards.
I donated to Akin last week...well worth the investment if it gets that beyotch out.
If he keeps this up, I may stop being irritated that I have to vote for him
It didn’t come from her salary. That’s for damned sure.
Wonder how the Liberal PhonyCons wanting Akin out are going to spin this one....
Great ad...and it will be very effective. Just hope this can get over the damage caused by all the PhonyCons who wasted weeks of time and $$$ trying to get Akin out
For those who dont know about Claire McCaskill a little about the 15th richest Senator in Washington and how her husband makes all his money through government welfare that she assures flows his way:
