Riley actually collected $830k+ in Covid loans. For anyone wanting to know more about James Patrick Riley and Riley’s Farm, read this...

1/ I feel there’s zero shame in accepting a PPP or EIDL loan as a result of the fallout from COVID that began March 2020. I do, however, have a MASSIVE problem that a recipient of said loans went on to join people at the US Capitol on January 6. I’m speaking about Riley’s Farm.🧵

8. Indeed it does.

The initial PPP loan program was poorly designed and quickly turned into a free money bonanza for businesses.

(Full disclosure: including my business.)

Color me shocked.

Add fraud charges to these people's crimes. Some of these people based on analyses of the insurrectionists caught thus far have long histories of bankruptcy and financial trouble at higher than average rates.

Grifters gotta grift.

Take everything they have.

16. Exactly how I've always felt

Payroll is the first P in PPP, if the money didn't go into paychecks it should come back to the U S Treasury
with interest for being dishonest.

19. I think the interest is super low, but yes, you're supposed to prove how you spent it

I never took any even though sole proprietors were allowed to use it to pay themselves. I figured I’d somehow be the one person it didn’t count for (tiny amount too)

14. So shameful

and disgusting! We have a trucking business that hauls Oxygen and Helium to yards where local drivers pick up to deliver to hospitals. We never requested PPP loans, mainly because we didn't trust the 'former guy' and we were and are (sadly) doing pretty well. In late 2020, trailers were disappearing around the country, these trailers are very expensive to replace. Which put us out of work for a month, but more than that, hurt hospitals who NEEDED the oxygen and Helium! My god these people. Shame on them.

27. Exactly. Also why we should not have allowed Manchin

to squeeze off deserving middle class folks from the stimulus check, child tax credit and the enhanced unemployment. He forced us to lower the income brackets, all of which just hurts our base which is heavily urban and suburban where salaries can be higher but cost of living is high as well.

As this OP details, the real 'waste' was in the PPP program which turned out to be a slush fund for alot of unscrupulous businesses ('small' or otherwise). Most of those people are Republicans and will never vote Dem.
