Democrat House member backed program that gave federal funds to her landlord's company

A Democratic House member backed a federal program that funded her own landlord's company.

Michigan Rep. Elissa Slotkin backed an NNSA program funding the company Niowave. Slotkin lives in a condo owned by Niowave's COO.

"Slotkin's campaign denied any wrongdoing to Fox Digital, which first reported that she was living in Hollister's home. Hollister has donated $2900 to Slotkin since 2018 through her campaign committee and ActBlue," the Daily Caller reported.

"The campaign claimed that Slotkin's office had not 'advocated for' or been 'involved in' any federal contracts or funds accessed by Niowave, according to the outlet," it added.

The alleged conflict of interest could hurt Slotkin in the upcoming midterms. Niowave has received $30 in federal funds since 2019, according to Fox News.

The congresswoman's campaign may claim there is no connection, but now that voters know they can decide if it's a concern worth addressing through how they vote in November.
