Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressional Integrity Project released a new report, Waste & Abuse: How House Republicans Made Millions From Flawed Pandemic Relief Program, highlighting House Oversight Republicans who benefited from Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans ahead of the House Oversight Committeee’s hearing tomorrow on pandemic relief programs. Congressional Integrity Project Executive Director, Kyle Herrig, said the following about the report:
“James Comer is starting his hypocritical reign as head of the House Oversight Committee by trying to blame the Biden administration for fraud in pandemic relief programs – despite the fact that the programs were started under President Trump. MAGA Republicans like Jim Jordan and Steve Scalise defended the program trying to pin the success on their leader, Donald Trump, but now that they are doing a 180 degree turn in an attempt to attack President Biden and Democrats. The same Republicans who will spend the hearing tomorrow attacking President Biden for programs like the Paycheck Protection Program received a combined total of over $3.5 million in PPP loans to businesses associated with them. Maybe the Oversight Committee should start with investigating their own loans.”
