Rep. Rush, who was elected to Congress in 1992, first began paying his wife, Carolyn Rush, in 2002. More than $67,231 in payments were made to her name during this election cycle.

Mrs. Rush began receiving checks for “consulting services” in 2008 on top of salary and wages as she pulled in $98,650 from the committee. This amount equated to more than a quarter of the campaign’s total operating expenditures this cycle.
Mrs. Rush’s payments increased again in 2010 to $119,400. She was paid $148,000 in 2012. She took in $66,000 in 2014.
