Joe Biden’s campaign is in a major cash crunch.
Things have gotten so bad that Biden reversed his position on using super PACs to raise money.
Now he has another problem.
The person running his super PAC is a foreign government agent. You couldn’t make this up.
The Federalist reports:
The Head Of Joe Biden’s New Super PAC Is A Foreign Government Agent
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has a brand new Super PAC in his corner, and it’s being run by a registered foreign agent for the government of Azerbaijan. Larry Rasky, a lobbyist who previously worked as a top campaign operative for Biden, is listed as the treasurer of the PAC, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
“A former Joe Biden aide has filed paperwork to form a super PAC, called Unite the Country, that is set to boost the former vice president with millions of dollars in spending in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary,” Politico reported on Tuesday.
Records filed with the Department of Justice show that Rasky is also a registered foreign agent lobbying on behalf of the government of Azerbaijan. The records, which were filed pursuant to the Foreign Agent Registration Act, show that Rasky was hired by the Azerbaijani government on April 23, 2019. Federal documents signed by Rasky show that he reports directly to Elin Suleymanov, Azerbaijan’s ambassador to the United States.
“[The government of Azerbaijan] will pay RASKY a minimum monthly non-refundable fee (the ‘Monthly Fee’) for the Services provided of $15,000 per month, plus a 5% administrative fee as described below,” Rasky’s contract with the foreign government states.
This seems rather problematic, doesn’t it?
Check this out, folks: The head of Joe Biden's Super PAC is REGISTERED Foreign Agent! . . Did you hear what I just said? The chair of a new super PAC supporting Joe Biden is a registered foreign fucking agent (RFFA, for short) for Azerbaijan, a former Soviet republic

Didn’t we just go through three years of Democrats screaming about the danger of foreign influence in our elections?
