After Obama FBI Stooge Andrew McCabe’s Firing, Leah Proposes Prohibiting Hiring Government Employees To Pad Taxpayer-Funded Benefits

"Taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook to inflate the pensions of deep state hacks who have proven they can’t be trusted to work for the government."

Brookfield, Wis. — U.S. Senate candidate and state Sen. Leah Vukmir, R–Brookfield, Monday proposed making it illegal to hire a federal government employee for the sole purpose of padding a taxpayer-funded pension.

On Saturday, Rep. Mark Pocan, D–Wisconsin, offered known leaker and Obama FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe a job in his congressional office so he can reach the threshold of service needed to collect full early retirement benefits after being fired.

“The true injustice in this story is that Mark Pocan thinks it’s appropriate to abuse the system so his swamp buddy can retire at 50 with full benefits. Only in Washington does that make any sense.” Leah said. “Taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook to inflate the pensions of deep state hacks who have proven they can’t be trusted to work for the government.”

Under Leah’s proposal, anyone found exploiting the federal public benefits system in this manner would pay a civil penalty equal to the cost to taxpayers of the pension boost.

Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record who has stood with Gov. Walker in cutting taxes and implementing bold reforms. She is running for the U.S. Senate to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.

Despite Baldwin’s Efforts To Hide It, The Tomah VA Report Became Public

“Senator Baldwin let us down by sitting on the Inspector General’s report that detailed the problems at the Tomah VA that endangered veterans,” said Leah Vukmir campaign manager Jess Ward.

Tammy Baldwin Knew About Tomah And Kept It To Herself

Baldwin also denied a plea from VA whistleblower Ryan Honl to make the report public that would’ve spurred action.

Will Baldwin Support Or Condemn Booker’s Decision To Knowingly Release Confidential Information About Racial Profiling?

"Voters deserve to know if she agrees with Booker’s unethical decision to release confidential documents," said Leah Vukmir campaign manager Jess Ward.

    You’re nuts, pedaling ‘deep state’ propaganda. You should be fired.

  2. PMD says:

    Really going after the talk radio crowd here. Pretty sad. She sounds like Alex Jones.

  3. GRNPAKWH says:

    Calling a person with a respected 21 year law enforcement career a “Stooge” and an elected US Representative a “swamp buddy” is not becoming of a person who wishes to be a US Senator. There is no room for grade school name calling in a democracy. A person who stoops to this level of immature activity is unfit to hold office in this great country.

    Keep your conservative poison to yourself and win on your merits.

  5. Terry says:

    Vukmir’s paranoia and truly bizarre behavior is definitely intensifying and becoming even more bizarre. It is actually sad but very scary at the same time. Sycophantic Trump toadies like her and Walker really need to be kicked out of office. This level of profound ignorance has no place near a position of power.

    Dump Trump
    Dump Walker
    Dump Vukmir
    Vote Democrat

    Is Lazy Leah in the office today? Will she dock her pay by a day? Will she rescind her pension for all the days she is out campaigning while I don’t have any representation (I don’t need the help of an 11 year old right wing intern, I need MY REPRESENTATIVE to fix some stuff with a credit bureau).

    I guess I’ll sic Tammy on them.

  7. Robert Blondis says:

    I wonder if Ms. Vukmir has read the investigative report regarding Andrew McCabe. I understand that it has not yet been released to the public.If not, what is the basis for her opinion? Everyone who has actually worked with Mr. McCabe and gotten to know him during his twenty – plus years in the FBI and similar agencies has nothing bad to say about him, but only high praise. According to them he was the model FBI special agent. I wonder if Vukmir actually read the as yet unreleased report or spoken to anyone who knows McCabe. As far as “swamp buddies” go, she need look no further than Donald Trump and his official and unofficial cabinet members.

  8. PMD says:

    Since her primary opponent got the Bannon endorsement she pursued but failed to get this apparently is her strategy to chase votes from right-wing crazies who admire Bannon and his ilk. Funny what people like her consider to be evidence of the swamp and what they conveniently ignore.

  9. will says:

    Doesn’t Vukmir work for ALEC and not her constituents who pay her bills? Vukmir is just another crazy right winger who has nothing but contempt for democracy.

  10. daniell golden says:

    Leah is going for the tin foil hat right wing talk radio crowd. Deep State? What, other than Trump’s unhinged rantings, is the basis for this toxic claim? McCabe, as well as Comey, are life long Registered Republicans. This loony rant in itself, even absent her reptilian like, reactionary voting record, shows Vukmir to be unqualified for any position higher than weed commissioner.
