Bad Timing, Bob Corker Style

Laughing all the way to the bank

The #CorkerKickback will continue to haunt Bob Corker, despite his mewling that he is innocent. Take it away, Fortune:

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker has reportedly failed to disclose millions of dollars in income from various investments since taking office in 2007.

While Senators often amend financial-disclosure forms, Corker filed dozens of corrections on Friday, according to the Wall Street Journal following an inquiry by the paper over regarding irregularities in his original forms.

And what are these various investments?

The Republican Senator had failed to disclose $2 million in income from three hedge fund investments and additional millions from real-estate investments as well as other assets and financial transactions, the Journal reports. The fully amended filings show at least $3.8 million in additional income between 2007 and 2014 from commercial real-estate holdings.

Why, what a coinkydink! Those are exactly the things that the #CorkerKickback will give tax breaks to! And what makes it even more coinkydinky is that those amended financial disclosures were on the same day he flipped from a Nay to a Yay vote, without reading the legislation.

It is of course, circumstantial, but it certainly supports he’s a crook.

    Maybe someone can explain to me. Is filling out these forms, a requirement? If they are not required then why are we even concerned? Are there penalties for filling out the form incorrectly or are there not? I can be assured that if I lie or even misrepresent myself on a Federal Form, that I will face some consequences, do they have a “get out of jail free card” or what?
    Russia influence and all aside for now “aren’t these people flagrantly breaking the law”?
    “think of the Children” . . .

    I don’t believe in the whole ‘swamp’ concept but as far as monsters go, Lil Bobby takes the cake.

    I can understand. Corker’s expression is the one I get when I find a $20 bill in my pants before tossing them in the washer.
