South Carolina Dem Clyburn Sent Six Figures of Campaign Funds to Relatives


One of Joe Biden’s biggest cheerleaders, South Carolina Democratic Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), took a page right out of the Biden syndicate playbook and funneled six figures of campaign cash to his son-in-law and grandson.

Clyburn, who has served in Congress for  thirty years, has already endorsed a Joe Biden 2024 run telling CBS News, “I’m all-in for President Biden. I think he’s demonstrated, in these two years … that he is deserving of re-election. And I do believe he will be re-elected irrespective of who the Republicans, they put up.”

While it’s legal for federal politicians to pay family members from their campaigns, ethics experts have generally disapproved of the practice. Despite this, both political parties have taken advantage of the perk.

Clyburn’s family payments the last election cycle include $57,500 to 49 Magnolia Blossom LLC for rent expenses, filings show. That company has close ties to his daughter, Jennifer Clyburn Reed.

According to South Carolina business records, Clyburn Reed’s husband, Walter A Reed, is the registered agent of the limited liability company.

Clyburn also paid out $94,000 to his grandson Walter A.C. Reed during the midterm election cycle for “campaign management fees,” his filings further show.

Clyburn has not faced a legitimate threat to his House seat since entering Congress in 1993 and has easily cruised through re-elections in the Palmetto State’s 6th congressional district.
