Ohio Democrats got a PPP loan: Just the kind of thing Rep. Thomas Massie warned about
Thomas Massie, the congressman who warned that the ‘relief package’ passed by Congress and signed into law by the President was full of abuse, was correct. Both Republicans (including Trump) and Democrats jeered at his objection however. Some no doubt knew that the bill had easy money in it for them.

Rep. Thomas Massie says his efforts to force a House vote on the program to shore up companies’ employment rolls amid the coronavirus pandemic are vindicated by stories of entities getting money from the federal government that never should have.
Massie, a Kentucky Republican, points specifically to a $333,000 loan that went to the Ohio Democratic Party under the Paycheck Protection Program, which was aimed at providing a direct incentive for small businesses, not political organizations, to keep their workers on the payroll.
