Ol' Bobby Rush is getting a wage garnishment from some kind of old loan he apparently defaulted on.

First time for everything.

Bobby has a rich history.

Rep. Bobby Rush Becomes First Congress Member in History to Have Salary Garnished

An Illinois congressman is forced to pay back more than one million dollars he owes in debt by giving up 15-percent of his salary.

This week Congressman Bobby Rush was ordered by a judge to forfeit $2,200 per month to pay for a delinquent loan he obtained to buy a church.

This is just another example as to why elected officials should do their job voluntarily instead of using the taxpayers' dime to make up for their mistakes.

Ole boy must be deep in debt.

Glad to see someone actually repay rather than just wiping out their debt.

Ummm...yup...especially when you read those two sentences and realize that $2,200.00 per month...is only 15% of his salary...

I'd say these worthless leeches are due for a drastic pay cut...Not only that...no pensions or other perks...

Yeah, because no Republican ever defaulted on a loan.

Does Trump ring a bell?

This really is time of counter weight to the rampant corruption of times past.

Things are only going to get harder for criminals in power.

More! Please and thank you.
