Susan Crapo Controversy
Susan Crapo Controversy came after it was alleged Crapo paid his wife about $200,000 from contributions to his political action group, Freedom Fund, for nearly two decades. A national monitoring group put the Senator among the top three senators who paid the most to family members for campaigning back in 2008. While it is unlawful to pay family members to work in congressional offices, it is legal to pay them for campaign work.
“She [Susan] donates labor and items for gift bags utilized at two large fundraisers that Senator Crapo organizes in Idaho each year, and she routinely supports campaign activities around the state with him, particularly during campaign years,” according to Crapo’s office. “The items created and provided by Susan Crapo for the gift bags during that time frame include homemade cinnamon bread, homemade raspberry and strawberry jam, neck pillows, homemade salsa, fleece/fur blankets, handcrafted semi-precious stone jewelry, pieced quilts, and homemade granola,” according to Hook N Bullet at two fundraisers in 2015 and 2016.
It’s a violation of campaign financing regulations if Susan was overpaid by the campaign. It’s also a little strange that she was paid $965.73 in 2015 and $381 in 2016, right before the elections, but then was paid nearly $17,000 after Crapo was re-elected.
