GOP pushes TJ Cox indictment – by selling t-shirts of him behind bars

Following bombshell news that former Rep. TJ Cox (D–Fresno) was arrested and facing 28 counts of alleging numerous financial frauds tied to various business entities, Republicans in Washington are wasting little time celebrating his criminal misfortune.

Tuesday afternoon, the National Republican Campaign Committee rolled out t-shirts displaying a photo of Cox behind bars for sale.

Cox was arrested Tuesday morning following the unsealing of a Federal grand jury indictment alleging he engaged in various wire frauds, money laundering incidents, wire fraud involving a financial institution, and led a straw donor scheme to finance his 2018 campaign.
