Slotkin supplements the disclosures to show the husband’s employment with a company that has won millions of dollars in government contracts

FIRST ON FOX: Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin has revised previous financial statements after she skipped her husband’s employment for the past two years at a company that has won millions in government contracts.

Slotkin’s move to change 2020 and 2021 financials came after Fox News Digital asked about the missing employment information for her husband Dave Moore.

Previous public statements from Slotkin revealed that her husband worked as a counter-terrorism planner at the Pentagon, and her previous financial disclosures from 2018 and 2019 showed that he worked for Emissary LLC, a company that provides general management consulting services.

As of this week, Slotkin’s financial disclosures for 2020 and 2021 indicated no employment for her husband, aside from his military pension.

On Wednesday, Slotkin filed two amended reports showing her husband was employed by Emissary LLC in both cases 2020 and 2021. Both amended reports listed his employment with the company under the income classification.

According to a 2018 financial report, Slotkin’s first member of Congress, Slotkin’s husband was an employee of Emissary LLC and earned a salary from the company. In the disclosure, Slotkin noted that her husband’s salary ranged from $100,001 to $250,000.

In her 2019 financial reportSlotkin reported that her husband worked for Emissary LLC and listed his employment with the company as earned income.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, a spokeswoman for Slotkin’s office concluded that her husband’s employment did not appear on the files for 2020 and 2021 “due to a clerical error.”

“Throughout Rep. Slotkin’s time in Congress, her husband has earned income from only two sources: through his military pension after retiring in 2014 after 30 years of active service in the Army, and from Emissary LLC, the contractor , for which he worked for the Department of Defense,” said the spokesman. “While filing income from the DOD is not required, Emissary LLC was noted in the 2019 filing but was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to a clerical error. Therefore, the Office submitted a clarification to the House Clerk to add these two words. “

While Slotkin’s office receives her husband’s income and employment through his contract work from the DOD, Kendra Arnold, the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, told Fox News Digital that “for a spouse’s salary, the source and type of salary does too in the case of payment by the federal government, this would have to be reported via personal financial information.”

“For a member, unless the federal government paid the salary, it would have to be reported,” Arnold added.

Emissary LLC has been heavily involved in government commissioned work since 2018.

In September, Slotkin’s campaign told The Detroit News that Slotkin’s husband is not registered as a voter in Michigan because most of his work as a Pentagon contractor keeps him in Washington.

Slotkin came under scrutiny last month after it was revealed she had moved into a condo in Lansing, Michigan, owned by a lobbyist who also happens to be one of her campaign donors, to run for re-election in a new congressional district.

Slotkin, who currently represents Michigan’s 8th congressional district, will run against GOP nominee Tom Barrett in the state’s November 8 election to represent the state’s newly drawn 7th congressional district.
