As a result of the Roe v. Wade ruling being overturned, House members are now looking into connected issues.
The usage and storage of previously gathered private data is one of these problems.
Representatives Sara Jacobs (D-CA), Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL), and Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) sent letters to five data broker companies and five personal health application companies requesting information and documents regarding the collection and sale of personal reproductive health data.
The committee is worried that this information could be used improperly to invade the privacy of those looking for reproductive health care.
The inquiry is still ongoing.
In Washington, D.C., successful lobbyists Mike and Tom Manatos are brothers.
The brothers also run a business that connects employers looking for workers with candidates by offering jobs and internships.
The Washington Commanders of the NFL are owned by Dan Snyder.
According to a committee spokesman, Snyder recently provided more than 10 hours of testimony via Zoom to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, where he addressed inquiries about the committee’s investigation into workplace misbehavior inside the Commanders’ organization.
Snyder previously avoided the subpoenas and demands to testify for more than a month.
“The brothers have a long history of opposing Snyder, with Tom Manatos even running a website dedicated to pushing negative content about the team owner,” according to a report from Fox News.
The team of brother lobbyists organized the now-controversial fundraiser.
In an email to guests, Mike Manatos explained the fundraiser as a chance to speak with Krishnamoorthi about the pending inquiry into the team.
“The one person in Washington who may have found a path to getting rid of Snyder [as the team’s owner] is my good friend and Chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi. om and I hope you can join us on May 10 as a small group of us meets with Raja to discuss his efforts” Mike Manatos wrote.
According to Conservative Brief, it is called into question by the fundraiser’s timing.
According to Fox News:
“Just weeks prior, Krishnamoorthi had sent a 20-page letter to the Federal Trade Commission demanding an investigation into accusations claiming the Washington football franchise fleeced season ticket holders and the National Football League.
The head of the oversight panel’s subcommittee on the economy and consumer policy, Krishnamoorthi, has claimed he was not aware of the approach made on his behalf. Shortly before the event was scheduled to begin, the congressman called it off.
Concerns concerning the nature of the fundraiser and Krishnamoorthi’s participation yet persist.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
An invitation sent along with the Manatos email, reviewed by Fox News Digital, lists two individuals with the Strathdee Group as points of contact for RSVPs to the event.
Federal Election Commission records indicate that Krishnamoorthi pays the organization $5,000 a month for fundraising consulting.”
The American Accountability Foundation describes itself as “a charitable and educational organization that conducts non-partisan governmental oversight research and fact-checking so Americans can hold their elected leaders accountable.”
