Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) responded to the charge of nepotism of her CBC scholarship awards~ Claiming she had nothing to do with selecting the recipients and had left that to aides. According to letters obtained by the Dallas Morning News??? Johnson WAS involved in the decision to give the money to her family members... IN FACT~she personally intervened to make sure her family received the checks, instead of their schools.
Yes, and I HATE when people that have an IN use it for family or friends then play DUMB...
She should RESIGN in SHAME but thats not the way politicians operate

I still can't get over there being certain funds for certain colors. Are there not poor chinese, indian, hispanic, irish, etc, peoples? This type of thing is discriminatory, as well.
And yes, since she stole funds that were intended to be given to others and gave them to family members, she should be fired and charged, not running around with the same kinds of access to funds.
