Members of Congress send millions to groups connected to their relatives

All kinds of self-dealing is permitted by lax Congressional ethics rules (which are set by the Congressmembers themselves), permitting them to send millions to groups connected to their relatives.

Craig Holman of Public Citizen, a nonprofit government watchdog group, says “The executive branch can’t steer contracts or work to businesses where family members work. They can’t even own stock in industries that they oversee, unlike Congress. It’s complete hypocrisy.”
