Amid allegations she paid family members tens of thousands of dollars with campaign funds, CT-5 Dem Congressman Johana Hayes is losing support in the district.
CenterForPolitics.org has moved her race from 'Likely Democrat' to 'Leans Democrat'. The move comes amid a total of 9 races which moved towards the GOP under their rankings for the November election.
During Q4 2021, Hayes used her campaign fund, called “Friends of Jahana Hayes,” to pay her son $15,118.54 since entering Congress. In 2018, the Hartford Courant reported Hayes’ son David Crenshaw, age 24, joined Hayes to celebrate her Congressional victory. The FEC records, reviewed by the Daily Caller, show that Hayes paid over $15,000 in increments of $282.47 each to a person with the name David Crenshaw under the category of “Payroll”, reported The Daily Caller.
