Ridgewood NJ, Democratic Congressman Josh Gottheimer received $5,800 in personal donations from Bankman-Fried. Gottheimer our local congressman also received two separate donations of $2,900 each — from FTX executive Mark Wetjen, who previously worked as commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. A spokesperson from Rep. Gottheimer’s office claims he will donate the funds to charity.

Accused crypto crook Sam Bankman-Fried and his FTX associates pumped nearly $95,000 in donations to at least 11 members of the House Financial Services Committee including  Gottheimer just before the midterms. The string of individual campaign donations has raised eyebrows given the 11 lawmakers serve on the committee currently probing last month’s collapse of the FTX crypto exchange.

Bankman-Fried was then arrested by Bahamian authorities hours after the interview based on a “sealed indictment,” filed by the US Attorney’s Office, Southern District of New York. The timing for the arrest was convenient for Bankman-Fried, at least in the short-term — the disgraced former CEO was scheduled to appear via video from the Bahamas before the House Committee on Financial Services Tuesday after agreeing to testify during the hearing seeking more information on the collapse of FTX. Bankman-Fried had been cagey about testifying, but finally said on Friday that he would answer lawmakers’ questions.

Although the congressional hearing went on as planned, the absence of the disgraced founder, who was also a major donor to the Democratic Party, was criticized by Republican lawmakers who hinted that federal authorities purposely blocked his testimony. Even progressive congresswoman Maxine Waters, who chairs the committee, expressed her upset with Monday’s development, saying, “the timing of this arrest denies the public” the opportunity to hear directly from Bankman-Fried while he was under oath.

  1. While Josh Gotta-Go-Heimer sits on the financial services committee, he racks in money from the CRYPTO SCAM. Vows to give to charity. NO SO FAST JOSH.

    The money should be clawed back to reimburse those that lost ALL.

  2. That $5,800 changed his life.

  3. Don’t expect too much reporting on Little Josh. He’s a favorite of the media.

    1. Learned well from his time with the Klintons.

  4. I guess he was also “short ” on money, in addition to height!

  5. Tell me who you know, I’ll tell you who you are.
