Remember those giant COVID bailouts?

It looks like thanks to Senate Democrats the Boston Bomber got a $1400 stimulus check.

From Fox News:

Senate Democrats cleared the way for convicted murderers like Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to receive stimulus checks when they passed the American Rescue Plan of 2021 last March without a GOP amendment that would have blocked inmates from receiving the checks.

Tsarnaev has been ordered by prosecutors to return a $1,400 COVID-19 relief payment he received last summer along with other money sent to him, according to a court filing Wednesday

Tsarnaev so far has only paid $2,202.03 of the more than $101 million in restitution owed to his victims. The filing said the $1,400 in COVID-19 relief money should instead be used as restitution.

Tsarnaev was sentenced to death two years after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, which left three people dead and hundreds hurt. The death sentence was overturned in 2020 after a court ruled that a trial judge erred by excluding some evidence. An appeal to reinstate his death sentence is before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Back in March–Tom Cotton predicted this:

Of course, the liberal hack Washington Post fact-checker attacked Tom Cotton over this claim.

Tom Cotton again responded:

The fact-checker admitted the mistake:

The entire point of “fact-checking” is proving somebody wrong.

A fact-check should be simple.

If someone said 2+2=5 you would fact-check by saying that 2+2=4. That is a provable fact-check.

What the liberal media does is an opinion piece masquerading as a fact-check.

Don’t trust them!
