Remember Rep. Markwayne Mullin, the legislator who claimed that there is rampant fraud in food stamps because he saw someone physically fit using them at a grocery store? Turns out Mullin has been sucking at the government tit as well, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars:
Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) who blasted a “physically fit” couple for using food stamps at a suburban Virginia grocery store, collected 370,000 dollars in federal stimulus money for his Oklahoma plumbing company. Mullin who brags about turning the plumbing company into a successful business never mentions the government help he received to make it thrive. Or if he did not need the money to prop up his plumbing firm, he never mentions that his business was “physically fit” and that he did not actually need stimulus money to keep it afloat…
After winning his GOP House primary in 2012, Mullin remarked “government needs to have a limited role in our lives. We can take care of ourselves.” Of course, it is easier to take care of yourself after the federal government cuts you a few checks totaling 370 grand. No wonder Mr. Mullin looks so physically fit.
And I bet he also claims that the stimulus bill didn’t create any jobs at all, too.
