EXCLUSIVE: Iowa House candidate on payroll for two Chinese companies

The latest financial report from Democrat Rita Hart, an Iowa candidate locked in one of the closest Congressional elections in decades, reveals Hart is on the payroll for two Chinese companies including one that is indirectly owned by the Chinese government. 

Hart is currently personally appealing to Nancy Pelosi to ignore the will of the voters and overturn the election results in her race.

Hart received income – not campaign donations – from Confucius International Education ($3,180) and Pangaea International Academy ($2,135.23), according to the report, which was released in May.

Accuracy in Media made these discoveries while investigating an FEC complaint against Hart. 

Confucius International Education Group, or CIEG, is funded by Far East Horizon, a Chinese state-run leasing company. In turn, Far East Horizon has ties to a Youth Communist League through shareholders, the Sinochem Group

CIEG purchased a shuttered Clinton, Iowa university campus, partnering with local officials to create a “private academy … for international students who would attend Clinton High School,” the Christian Science Monitor reported.  Via – Accuracy in Media
