Maddow details the shocking corruption involving Mitch McConnell and his Trump-cabinet member wife

“The Transportation Department under Secretary Elaine Chao designated a special liaison to help with grant applications and other priorities from her husband Mitch McConnell’s state of Kentucky, paving the way for grants totaling at least $78 million for favored projects as McConnell prepared to campaign for reelection,” Politico reported.

“Chao’s designation of Inman as a special intermediary for Kentucky — a privilege other states did not enjoy — gave a special advantage to projects favored by her husband, which could in turn benefit his political interests. In such situations, ethicists say, each member of a couple benefits personally from the success of the other,” Politico added.

“She set up a special lane at the Department of Transportation specifically to fund things that would benefit her husband,” Maddow explained.

“I mean, this is the sort of thing you would find out was happening in some banana republic around the world and you would be like yeah, that’s why they can’t get State Department-funded blah, blah, blah — they’re too corrupt. In this case, it’s Mitch McConnell’s family,” Maddow noted.

“They could make it fair, they could give every senator a spouse in the cabinet,” Maddow pointed out.

11. Maybe someone should look at how corrupt Chao was...

When she was a part of Bush’s cabinet.

How did Kentucky/McConnell fare that time around?
