The campaign of “Squad” member Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has paid out over $100,000 for “fundraising consulting” to a Florida-based progressive firm founded and operated by a defund the police and anti-Israel activist, campaign filings show.
Tlaib’s campaign and PAC sent $96,000 in payments between March 2020 and March 2021 for “fundraising consulting” to Unbought Power LLC, a Florida-based firm that specializes in grassroots organizing and advocacy consulting. The campaign paid out another $18,000 to Unbought Power between April 2021 and June 2021, Federal Election Commission records released last Thursday show.
The article goes on to state the following:
Rasha Mubarak, the Palestinian-American activist who founded Unbought Power in March 2020, has been involved in grassroots advocacy for over 15 years and has assisted with Tlaib’s political career over the course of the last decade. In March 2019, Mubarak tweeted that she “mobilized” her first political fundraiser 9 years earlier and said it was for Tlaib, who responded that she “can’t wait” to organize a political fundraiser for her.

In April, Mubarak tweeted a demand to abolish the police. She wrote, “Only a ‘few bad apples’ kill Black & brown people? Nah racist systems that uphold it’s white supremacist origin kill Black & brown people — Black & brown CHILDREN. #AdamToledo was a 13 yr old child murdered by this police state. No more names. Abolish the police #DefundThePolice.”

In July 2020, Mubarak posted multiple demands to defund the police, blasting Orange County, Florida for giving $15 million to the sheriff’s department.
DEMAND 1: RECOGNIZE & declare racism as a public health crisis. Systemic racism has & continues to be one of the greatest threats to Black lives. Black people are disproportionately impacted by health issues: high infant & maternal mortality rates hypertension & heart disease

Instead, give us a $15 million raise for direct rental assistance, programs that nurture community. Universal received $130 million in county subsidies since December. We want that money back! We need community safety for all, not just some.

Let’s make sure Orange County rejects the proposed $15 million increase to the Sheriff’s department budget. Instead, give us a $15 million raise for direct rental assistance, programs that nurture community#OurBudgetOurBlock #DefundThePolice #GivethePeopleaRaise

Mubarak has also posted a slew of anti-Israel comments on Twitter, including the following tweets in May, demanding Congress cut US funds to Israel, and voicing support for the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Please have mercy on my people. If you’re asking what to do: Call on your congressional leaders to demand the US cut funds to Israel. Practice BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) and STAND with the Palestinian people

These aren’t clashes— it’s an ongoing occupation
These aren’t evictions— they are forced expulsions
This isn’t a conflict— it’s settler colonialism, it’s ethnic cleansing, it’s oppression, it’s apartheid
Say it loud. Say it clear. Palestine will be FREE🕊#SaveSheikhJarrah ✌🏽

In a demonstration of the closeness with Tlaib, Mubarak posted the following happy birthday message last year.
So grateful that this soul is in ALL of our lives. @RashidaTlaib’s always fighting for what’s right no matter the pushback. If it’s for making even the smallest difference in someone’s life, she always finds a way. I love being on the freedom side along side you. Happy birthday! pic.twitter.com/LoMlxbF7bF
