      And his name is Henry Cuellar.

      The FBI raided his home and office as part of an investigation led by the DOJ team that handles issues related to bribery, corruption, election crimes, and more. That investigation is related to ties between U.S. businessmen and Azerbaijan.

      We separately also know the ties between Cuellar and a dark money anti-abortion group could violate federal election law, according to investigative reporting at The Intercept. A close aide to Cuellar launched the dark money group and is spending money to defeat Justice Democrat Jessica Cisneros.

      Henry Cuellar is in a lot of trouble, and this could be more:

      His longtime aide teamed with abortion ban zealots to launch a dark money group in September that is spending big in the race, likely breaking the law

      Jessica is locked in a primary election battle with Cuellar, where Cuellar has millions from corporate PACs and lobbyists. These revelations about Cuellar could push Jessica to victory, but only if we all lift Jessica up at this critical moment. It seems like Cuellar is still planning to run, but Jessica has the momentum. The election is on March 1 and in-person early voting starts in just 24 days.

      Didn’t know about this until now.

      I once made the mistake of complaining about Cuellar to my Dem brother, only for him to state that we needed to keep him in office because he’s a Dem. No amount of me pointing out his corruption or DINO status would sway him, either. Blue no matter who gives us people like this.

      At least to get this POS out of Congress.

      But I fear she will fall just as AOC and the others have if she wins.

      Cuellar is a corporate Democrat who voted with Trump over 70% of the time.

      Cuellar was endorsed by Nancy Pelosi in the Democratic Primary against progressive Democrat Jessica Cisneros.

      AOC and Bernie Sanders supported Cisneros.

      Cuellar accepted plenty of corporate cash, a PAC associated with Koch industries, the Chamber of Commerce, and big banks.

      The DCCC held a fundraiser for Cuellar. Cisneros ran a grassroots campaign.

      The election still ended up close between Cuellar and Cisneros.

      If Cisneros doesn’t win the Democratic Primary this time then there is something wrong with Democratic voters down there in Texas.

      I’ve seen this mentioned around the Internet but didn’t want to take the time to look into it. I’m really disillusioned with politics and/DC in particular. So basically ignoring all the hoopla. Yeah, the Texas Dems will probably vote for him again.

      vote for nobody

      Until proven otherwise, I’ll be thinking Sisneros would just become another member of the Fraud Squad if she won, and nothing would fundamentally change.

      Nonetheless, it would be nice to see Cuellar finally get booted out of his cushily corrupt House seat.
